We sat outside to enjoy the sunshine and let our small child scoot around in the square. The croquettes were delicious and the fried squid was tender. The service staff were incredibly efficient and helpful.

Recommended by our hotel owner as a restaurant run by a local family, El Pitillo, while not very attractive, buzzes with locals ordering dishes such as croquetas, pimentos de Padrón, calamares, and tortillas. The tortilla was perfect; a bit runny and a beautiful yellowish orange!!...More

If you want to have Galician/Spanish food in an unpretentious place, this is very good. Don't be appalled by the long line of people waiting, it goes pretty quickly. Good tapas and good prices.
