We had a lovely lunch here at Don Quijote while visiting Vigo. This is a traditional pulperia or octopus restaurant, where is the octopus is cooked outside in a barrel of boiling water. It was served with olive oil and paprika and was simply delicious! We also shared a dish of garlic prawns as a starter. We had sea bass... More

Came here with friends when we were doing a little of the camino, we had our first dinner here, it was so good we got the train back before returning home to Barcelona. The steak was the best any of us had ever had (there were a lot of steak fans in the group! Personally I am very fussy but... More

If you are in Vigo and looking for a lunch stop this is a little gem. The tables have plenty of shade and a view of the harbour -just - but what we liked was the 3 course lunch with a glass of wine or bottle of water and coffee for 10 Euros. The portions were adequate for lunch and... More

A restaurant I always return to when in Vigo. The food is local and therefore very fresh, the ambience is good and the tables well set out and laid. It is possible to eat inside and outside (weather permitting!). The best cooked baby squid (pulpa) done in Galician style I have ever eaten, so different from the usual chewy pieces... More

We visited the resto on a trip to the area with friends. Looking forward to sampling the local seafood and other items. We ordered a lot of different shellfish , shrimps, scallops and more including chuleton. The navajas or razor clams were served and before they even hit the table we could smell that something wasn't right. We all tried... More

We went there on the evening of the 27th to celebrate our wedding anniversary, having spotted it during the day. Upon entry we walked into a very pleasant dining area, a very pretty restaurant. Unfortunately our waiter couldn't speak English so we tried in our very poor Spanish and we just about understood each other. I ordered the Gambas a... More

We truly enjoyed tasting some Gallego dishes and seafood. The service was excellent and the suggestions were great. We enjoyed our desserts especially the Tartara de mi Abuela was yummy! We tried peceberes (a crustacean delicacy) and gallego wine.

We stopped here for lunch firstly because the menu del dia was only 8 euros and looked promising, and secondly because it was busy with Spanish customers (families and business people, as well as tourists). The food was Galician and very good. 3 courses, bread, a glass of wine, a bottle of water, and coffee. Extraordinary value.

We were looking for somewhere with good seafood and salads on this hot summer day. We found it! This is perfect for light outdoor eating. The food was very good and excellent value but this place is not for a formal three course event, others around us who were here for something grander all looked disappointed. Service is friendly but... More
