  • Fish and seafood at Finisterre

    A good place to have dinner after watching the sunset at Finisterre. The restaurant is in front of the beach and very close to the port.There are a great variety of fish and seafood. Our choice was monkfish with turnip greens and scorpion fish; salad, wine from Ribeira Sacra and dessert. The bill was 48 €.

    After a day travelling along the Death Coast, we didn’t feel like eating too much for dinner. The owner of our hotel recommended us this place. Following his suggestion, we tried the stuffed squids (star dish) and grilled octopus. A delicious light dinner.

Both were delicious. The bill was 34 €.

  • Hot meal for pilgrims at Santiago

    The specialty of the house is the octopus. In fact, it is one of the oldest pulperías at Santiago. Nevertheless, we chose two of the set menus they offer (from 9 - 10 € on). The caldo gallego (typical broth) was most appreciated after a rainy day.

In the menu there were different seafood platters. We ordered a seafood platter for two people that consisted of a big plate of goose barnacle, a bowl of steamed...

    Well what can I say. This was one of the best seafood platters we have ever had. Not cheap but excellent quality. It was a beautiful September night and we sat outside. The staff were friendly and we were not rushed. After a while the restaurant filled up and a couple of other people joined us outside. Such a peaceful location. We watched the sun...

  • Fresh Seafood: The speciality of...

    The sea food in Galicia is so fresh sometimes it's still living right up until you choose what you want off the menu. Pulpo (octopus) is a speciality here. It lightly spiced and far less chewy than anywhere else. We dined at a small local restaurant in Muros right on the sea front. The food was superb and obviously fresh that day! You could see the...

    Every time we had dinner in Orense, it was unfortunately fast food. Apart from the nasty fast food, dinner was pleasant since it was on the older side of city, on a open door cafe in a garden. We visited Orense im September and you could still enjoy some pleasant summer nights. If you visit Orense during summer and feel like having fast food,...

  • Fresh Seafood

    Galician cuisine centers around fresh, locally caught seafood. I guess this is going to have to change.Tell me, how long will it be til you would consider eating seafood from Galicia or the surrounding areas? Currently there is a 500 mile ban from fishing in this area. But how long til you would feel comfortable eating foods fished from the sea in...
