Cafeteria Manhattan Plaza: Interesting and busy
Situated on a road island in the Plaza de Pontevedra. It is interesting, the food is ok and seems to be always busy. They have very professional staff.
Favorite Dish: I have enjoyed a steak and salad, and on other visits I have enjoyed Chicken Milanese with Salad.
Casa Rita: Galician Food
I made two visits to Casa Rita. The service was excellent and the food wonderful. It seems to have two sections - one for tapas and bar food and the other with a more formal set up.
The portions are large, so even taking "small" will be enough for you.
Favorite Dish: Tortilla, croquets and salad
Rincon de la Marina: Lunch at Puerto Deportivo
The restaurant overlooks the private marina and moorings for yachts. This facility is also home to a school and various support groups open for the use of members and visiting sailors.
The restaurant has a bar area and a rather swish eating area.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the coffee and dessert.
cafeteria PlayaClub: eating by the Atlantic shoreline
The restauarant and bar are part of a bigger complex; with a club and also another more expensive restaurant. However I had two very pleasant lunches in the cafeteria and can highly recommend it to anyone.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed a steak, chips and mushrooms with side salad - and a very large ice cream as a dessert on one visit. The coffee was excellent.
Medas Restaurante: Airport Eating
This was my first time eating on the first floor restaurant. There was a limited menu, but it was acceptable. Sadly they only had two staff working and there was a long delay, well over 60 customers and service was not so good. the food seemed ok, but my steak arrived cold.
A mixed experience overall
Cantina Aquarium Finisterrae: Eating in the Aquarium
We arrived just after the normal lunch time, and had to wait an age to be seated and served. The service was ok, but the food was mixed and the friend I was with had an excellent steak - sadly my lunch was poor. I even found a hair in my mixed salad.
Favorite Dish: steaks were good (apparently)
100 montaditos: Spanish fast food
Tapas, the Spanish fast food. This franchise serves 100 different tapas each for 1 euro and a variety of beers and drinks.
For 1 euro, the tapas are small of course ;-)
You will find it in "El Puerto" which is a mall recently built in the harbor right in front of Avenida de la Marina.
Restaurante DOMUS: Coruña's best restaurant
In front of the Domus museum. In my opinion, the best restaurant in Coruña in every aspect and not the most expensive. Superb food, service and views. Local traditional and creative cuisine. Prices 15-40 euros per person.
Veracruz: Best coffehouse
This is a charming coffeehouse in Riego de Agua, just past Calle Real on your way to Maria Pita. It's the best in my opinion. Another good coffeehouse is Caffè Vecchio on the other side of Calle Real near the Obelisc.
Ginos: An Italian of high hopes
Located in the Commercial centre in the Port area - I had high hopes for the food. It seems that this part of a larger group of eateries. It is quite expensive and not really good value for money. The portions may be small, but some of the items on the menu are good to eat.
I tried to order a mixed salad but was told no! It was not on the menu!!
Favorite Dish: try the meat escallopes
Everywhere you go: Any restaurant in any town
There are a lot of restaurants looking at the sea.
Favorite Dish: You can have the opportunity of tasting the best shellfish and fish in the world; with the best wines in this region, and also "ternera gallega" (veal) This is fresh meat, soft and juicy, succulent and soft. Each animal has been born, raised, and sacrificed in Galicia and has been fed nothing but natural products. The veal must be a minimum of 10 months old, having remained with the mother that entire time. The quality of Galician veal is protected by its own regulating council.

Manhattan: Don't let the name scare you...
Don't be scared by the cheesy name and exterior of this café, inside it's different. Go in for a coffee or some traditional spanish tapas, good value for money! Effective staff, but some of them are somewhat grumpy... Sit down and take it all in!
Favorite Dish: Café con leche - doble! The best coffee in town, in my opinion!

La Mamma Romana - Ristorante Cocina Italiana: A restaurant frequented by Deportivo players
The restaurant was comfortable and it required a booking - it is frequented by tv personalities and players of the local football club from la Liga - Deportivo A Coruna.
The modern style was comfortable and the staff were very professional.
Favorite Dish: We only had a main course and dessert - but I can recommend the veal and the rustica.
El Coral: seafood
Located in the city centre, not too far from Palexco where the conference hall is, and along the main Marina street, the front of the restaurant has a glass case showing the fresh supplies. The ambience a bit stiff, but you could relax and eat your seafood with hands.
Great to have is steamed or grilled prawns, mussels, scallop in shell, and then moving on to mains, where you can have seabass, turbot, hake etc grilled, baked with ultra rich sauces. Rice dishes also good here, and the seafood soup is really hearty for a small diner. Service is however very very stiff... a bit overdone for me... They have an excellent wine list...
Adega O Bebedeiró: Seafood Pies, mussels, desserts and lots more
This is a charming place...remember it closes on Mondays, and we went there it was closed:(
Booking is essential, becos there are lots of locals and tourists who seem to haunt this tiny place. The food is awesome, and you should let the chef decide what you want to eat.
My husband, typical Asian was craving for his rice... so we had rice with seafood with creamy sauce...this was awesome, and then we had seafood patties, which had monkfish and scallops in it. YOu could have some fresh seafood - grilled to perfection for starters...like scallops in the shell...is very very yum.
Desserts are plenty to choose from....it was the best place to eat...and very well priced as well. They had cream filled crepes, souffles etc.
