Returning to O Grove after a decade we were really excited in having a dinner at El Crisol and repeat the fantastic experience of 13 years ago. Sadly we were informed that the restaurant where we had, with no doubt, one of the best seafood of our lives was definitely closed. Well…following a tip from a local we decided to try the Solaina and we were not disappointed!
We started with some oysters that were very fresh, then we order some “vieiras” (scallop) but not backed as they usually serve but “a la plancha” (grilled) and they tasted excellent, at the end a mixed seafood plate consisting of “cigalas” (crayfish), prawns, shrimps and a very delicious “a la plancha” lobster served with a good Albariño wine. Fully satisfied, but El Crisol was in a higher level. Anyway, we fully recommend it and surely you will not be disappointed.

Surprisingly or probably not they also do excellent galician veal.
Started with excellent scallops on the shell and ended with a superb grilled veal chop with fries and Padrón peppers.
Very nice meal at a reasonable price.

The quality of the food was superb; generous portions, and with a very diligent service. The place is your typical Spanish "marisqueria" or shell-fish restaurant, with the fish bowls at the entrance full of lobsters and other crustaceans. The decoration is good and standard for this sort of place except for the white light from the ceiling that in my taste is too much; however typical of some Spanish restaurants. We had percebes (goose barnacles) which although expensive they were very good, and then sole and hake. Very, very good.

Price on the expensive side but you cannot complain given the quality. We also had a fantastic Flor de Pingus wine, very pricey but very special.

All in all a great place to eat seafood and shellfish.

My wife (argentinian) and I (italian) find this place very nice. The quality of the food is very good (the "mariscos" and the "pulpo" were delicious ). The waiter was very friendly and he answer all your questions, without being in hurry. The choise of wine was goos as well. The price was right. I recommend it.
