Talented young chef Alfonso Moldes and his family have created a nearly perfect restaurant in Tia Brigida. Situated in the old seaside village of Cangas, across the picturesque harbor from Vigo, this restaurant specializes in contemporary interpretations of traditional seafood dishes. Serving some of the most satisfying food in Galicia, Chef Moldes cooks with his heart as well as his head.
Based on the 7+ meals I’ve eaten there, I recommend starting out with the sumptuous octopus salad, laid out on sliced pear tomatoes and topped with feta, rosemary, paprika and vinaigrette dressing. For a main course, I like the hearty Haddock casserole – based on an old family recipe – which includes prawns, clams, mussels, asparagus, and peas. Other my main course favorites include the grilled Galician sea bass or the “King” seafood rice casserole that combines King scallops, King prawns, crawfish, mussels, clams with seaweed, garlic, and saffron in a special caldo. I wouldn’t leave Tia Brigida without trying its acclaimed Devil’s food cake, crafted with dark Belgium chocolate, heavy whipped cream, and Earl Grey tea. Other dessert creations from Mr. Moldes’ kitchen range from a perfect Spanish flan to delicious rum raisin apple pie to warm ginger cookies (with bits of real ginger).
Mirroring this synthesis of old and new, the restaurant is located in a modernized Galician stone house, once the long-time home of a neighbor figure named Aunt Bridget. The ambience is clean, contemporary and tasteful. A modern upper structure rises out of ancient Galician stonewalls. Large windowpanes let the sunlight cascade through a glass floor to help illuminate the lower levels. The cozy, street-level bar serves good regional beers and Albariño wines, along with house-made seafood empanadas.
The Moldes family certainly knows fish: one brother is a fisherman, the sister works at the local fish market and the mom is the shrewd, demanding buyer of anything that swims. Committed to a great dining experience, another brother oversees the service at the restaurant, ensuring that the staff is both professional and friendly. This place truly is a family affair.
Opened in the winter of 2008, this restaurant has quickly become a local foodie favorite, so make Reservations in advance. Prices are moderate. For me, Tia Brigida is the perfect place to enjoy a meal with friends or family at a relaxed pace. Visiting Galicia, from San Francisco, over many meals, I feel at home in this special restaurant.

we came upon this restaurant by chance, and what a surprise! The fresh seafood and attractive presentation was a highlight. It was our first restaurant meal in Spain and O Bruno set a very high standard. Just when we thought we could not eat another thing, we were shown the dessert menu that we could not resist. The light and tasty strawberry flan decorated with berries was a special treat. The memory of this tasty dessert will linger - along with other special tastes of Spain

In this nice restaurant on the hill, we ate very good and fresh seafood (including percebes); the service was excellent, fast and very kind. And the price in the end was more than honest for what we have been eating! For sure we'll come back!

Restaurante de cocina tradicional gallega, se aceptan reservas. Abiertos todos los dias a excepcion de los martes.En verano abrimos todos los dias.
Arriving before the locals, we had the undivided attention of our waiter who was very helpful with our food choices and regarding my being a coeliac and having to avoid gluten.
We were given a picture book of the various fish and shellfish potentially on offer (those actually on offer being highlighted with a green sticker). My husband and I first chose the turbot, but our waiter suggested we also try the wild seabass. So, we ended up sharing one of each and the seabass was particularly delicious!
Our children opted for steak (which was cooked exactly as requested - one rare and one well done). The homemade chips were the best chips they had during our holiday.
We drank the house Albariño - the waiter left the bottle on the table and we were charged only for the half we drank. And this was only about 4.5 euros.
For pudding, there was not a great deal of choice, but my Gallegan version of creme brûlée was perfect.
Overall, the food was very good, the bill was extremely reasonable and our waiter was touchingly delighted that we enjoyed our meal and were so grateful for the care taken not to contaminate my meal with gluten.

This is a small family restaurant in Congas. The food is spectacular particularly their take on foie gras and Iberico ham. Service is warm and friendly. Little English spoken but you can point to what you want. Some beautiful Albarino wines also available.
Can be hard to find. We had the business card with the address but no phone or web site. Just plain good food much enjoyed by the locals.
Price reasonable circa E30 per person, including tip.

Read the reviews and was recommended by our apartment owner. The food was of poor quality. We ordered an array of meals (seafood, meat, salads) and each one was disappointing. The lack of taste was concreted when I saw the chef in the kitchen carrying empty packets to throw in the bin...
