We ended up in this restaurant almost by chance (the one we were going to, was closed). First look at the menu, plenty of very appealing options, at a quite reasonable price.We ended up having 'tostas' (toast bread with a topping) as starters. Beware! The portion is huge, there are four toasts per serving. Very good though. As main course, salmon, beautifully presented and very nicely cooked. I had grilled vegetables with a nut vinaigrette. Lovely! Maybe a bit oily, but super tasty. Deserts, most home-made, tropical fruit ice cream and a chocolate one for me. It had a kind of chocolate soufflÃ©, vanilla ice cream and toffee cup. Coffees, liqueurs and a really nice bottle of Rosa Rivero, Pagos de Galir, Valdeorras Mencia red wine. Excellent!

In 5 minutes you are galician. Food is great. Waiters really run with food trays, still is hot, to every cosstumer and ask to try. Do not refuze. Every thiing they serve is delicious. It is not monotony. Friday night is best. Eat, drink, make friends.

The best restaurant experience in a very long time; really great food, star presentation, fab wine list, atmosphere, style, ambience, setting in a tiny fountained square, great music, amazing, friendly service. What more could you ask for!?Come here at least once before you die - it's that good.

We have been spending a little time in Ourense and discovering the local food offerings and came accross this new cafÃ© Bistro (only opened last month) and totally felt in love with the place. The space is divided in two Ã¡reas, the cafÃ© to have drinks and tapas and the restaurant Ã¡rea at the rear of the place. The whole space has a very conteporary feel with commission art work at the back which covers the whole Wall. The bar Ã¡rea is covered with wooden white wash panelling, giving it a look between shabby chic and Miami beach. We passed by it and decided to try as we really liked the look of it and the menÃº. We were bowled over by the tzatziki, the best weÂ´ve have in a long, long time outside Greece. We also had sliders and patatas bravas, both were fab!. We have gone back since to have lunch a few times with the Menu del dia which is not your usual fare, it does comprise of starter, main and dessert and includes wine and bread but the food is of higher level than your usual menÃº del dia you tend to get all over Ourense. The cost is â¬9 which is an absolute bargain for what you get. They also have a burger menu around â¬6 and the burger is to die for! Service is always very good, profesional and above all incredibly friendly. Highly recommended, after a couple of months here, it has become one of my favorite places to eat and that is a tall order in a city where food is so ingrained in the culture and there are 100Â´s places to eat.

We ate here during our recent trip to Ourense. There are many restaurants around and so we chose this one, partly because of TA reviews and partly because it was just around the corner from our hotel. We chose the menu del dia (either 10â¬ or 11â¬) and had a choice of several dishes for the various courses. The menu came with bread and a glass of wine, beer or water. Not as generous as some, but the quality of food makes up for that.If you're eating, then you have to go through to the back of the restaurant as the front seems reserved for drinking or tapas only. The service is excellent and the waiters look incredibly smart in their white shirts, bow ties and black waistcoats. We had Cuban rice (basically a spicy rice with a fried egg on top) and asparagus and ham (fine but it was cheap sliced ham from a packet). The mains were veal and skate. You will be asked how you want your veal cooked and you might want to remember that medium in Spanish is much the same as rare in the UK......Our desserts were two delicious flans. The meal was excellent and tremendously good value. The restaurant became very busy, so we were glad that we turned up as early as we did, around 1ish. You might want to bear this in mind if you decide to go there. It is worth going to for the quality and value of the food available.

This has to be the largest restaurant in the centre/Old Town of Ourense very close to the Cathedral. There are different dinning areas ranging from more informal tapas style bar to formal restaurant and events. We sat in more formal area which was nice and quiet and we noted the whole place is tastefully decorated. We were attended by the chef himself Miguel as well as some waiters all were helpful and profesional.The food was superb as they use the very best products. We started with some appetisers the home made pies were excellent one was ham and turnip tops the other baby scallops. We also tried some tempura of sardines and potatoes and a variety of nice croquettes not yo mention the wonderful baby squid. The main course was a wild,roast sea bass with accompanying salad/roast vegetables. It was nice and light real fresh and delicious. The desert was also creative with mirabels, a type of plum from O Rosal with Galician chestnuts in a light soufle. This was washed down with a smooth, local Godello white wine. A real great dinning experience.

I went to this restaurant in Easter with my boyfriend and apart from an outstanding interior design the food is very good quality (better than the average good quality Galician food), amazing presentation and great taste!Just amazing. Only downturn is that it is a bit pricey... but you dont have to go every day! :)

This restaurant is set inside a wine shop/delicatessen so you know you're getting the best of both worlds. The menu comprises 15 or so dishes on a blackboard with dishes that show off the best this region of Spain has to offer. The apple crumble dessert was a nice touch and a bit of a tribute to the young owner's travels in the U.K. An excellent dinner in this beautiful part of Spain.

small restaurant in upper old town part with lovely interior.very attending waiter, helpful specially for wine recommendation. classic menu with a lot of meat dishes. we had fresh arrived boletus mushrooms - grilled almost burned and extremely bitter in taste as never had it before like that. duck liver roasted nice in taste. main course solomillo & presa both very tender and tasteful, the garnish puree of cauliflower, sliced carrots and homemade fries shows a very poor presentation. in a restaurant t of this level I aspect a local typical or a classic potato garnish (no need to complicated) not only some fries as everywhere. also the vegetables let the dish look very poor.huge selection of wines, also sweet wines by glass (a bit high priced for the measure) service very attending but serve the few tables almost alone so the diner gets very very slow - another guy to help would be really needed!for the price level on my opinion several thing went wrong, a pity as the meat is best quality and very good cocked. just around many things to keep more attention.

Fuimos un dÃa de lluvia y creo que con sol este sitio tiene que lucir mucho mÃ¡s.Pedimos champiÃ±ones rellenos (estÃ¡n sÃºper ricos), setas a la cazuela y pimientos asados. De postre el flan de queso, muy bueno tambiÃ©n. No ponemos un excelente porque en las mesas de al lado estaban comiendo carne a la plancha (hecha en planchas pequeÃ±as en las propias mesas) y salimos completamente ahumados (a pesar de que tenÃan extractores).
