We had the best time at Casa Marcelo. The best part was that we didn't have to choose the plates and the chef surprised us with delicious meals. The timing of service was perfect and the food was indescribable.

Sat at the bar and let the chef take us on a stellar journey. Each dish stood on it's own, but the john dory was a knock out. Staff knows their wine and how to make you feel welcomed and nourished. Definitely not traditional and well rounded in presenting unique tastebud stimulation with each presentation. Energetic atmosphere while retaining the... More

We did´t need to ask for meals and they directly offer us an excellent range of dishes mixing originality, quality, flavor, taste and senses.

Tired at the end of the camino, my brother was not in the mood . But we sat at a group table with some US business men and savoured a succession of elegant , clever dishes .. and some great rioja. The duck was exquisite !! Happily recommend. Great atmosphere

My boyfriend and I read a review for Casa Marcelo on TA and decided to give it a try. It was also recommended by a friend from Santiago, so we arrived (as indicated by previous reviews) around 8:30 when they opened. We got seated at the bar right away and since my boyfriend doesn't eat shellfish or pork, we trusted... More

3 course meal and a drink for 9 euros. Perfect ingredients and well prepared dishes. We went without reservation and Marcelo itself set up a table for us. Full of pilgrims, maps, directions and locals.

I think it is maybe the best restaurant I have ever eaten in. The food was fabulous, the service impeccable and the atmosphere extremely entertaining. Sit at the bar and let Marcelo order for you. You will not be disappointed.

Coming from Australia we're used to fusion food. But Galician and Japanese blew us away. More on the Galician side than Japanese the food was outstanding. Small and intimate, the shared tables are positioned all around the open kitchen with a busy team of 10+ chefs. Certainly several notches above the otherwise excellent food in Santiago de Compostella. Haven't done... More

It was almost by accident that we found this fabulous restaurant. It is tucked away down a small side street leading away from the cathedral with no obvious sign outside. It was the building queue before the restaurant opened that took our attention. The head of the restaurant could not have been more helpful, in fact he chose our menu... More

Being from Galicia and with my japanese girlfriend in town, we decided to give a shot to this Galician - Asian fusion place, and none of us was dissapointed. We sit in a communal table beside the kitchen that is open to see. Since the first to the very last dish the tasteness went in crescendo... I would recomend the... More
