What sets this restaurant apart from so many other seafood restaurants is that it not only knows how to prepare high quality seafood but also has mastered ambiance, service and presentation. So far the best restaurant experience we have had in Galicia. We didn't have the special rice dishes made with seafood, lobster, etc which several other guests had and that we're a feast (in a real sense) for the eyes. Instead we had multiple small courses served individually to try the variety of fresh seafood on the menu. Mussels, croquetas de bogavante, grilled razor clams, pulpo came one after another. Too much food but we ate it all plus a shared fish fish expertly plated. And we made the right decision to share a dessert. A rolled crepe filled with a coffee and rum mousse with carmel, shaved almonds and a finely shaped oval of helado. If any doubt about the freshness of the crustaceans, they are in a tank and your selection may be brought to the table to view before cooking. An the most amazing part was the bill. A great value for a priceless meal!

A colleague recommended this place, and we were not disappointed. The tasting menu offered a seemingly never ending array of small beautifully presented and very tasteful dishes. We loved how the kitchen each time managed to bring out the crispness and freshness of the ingredients. Service was in the beginning a bit stroppy, but got friendly as we progressed in our dinner. Interesting was that we were given a timeframe for our lunch (2hrs15mins for the tasting menu) which was kept, even though we didn't ask for it. The setting is somewhat formal, but the views are great. A pleasant surprise was the final bill, where "extras" such as the bottled water and glasses of wine were charged at very decent prices. We had the pleasure to meet the chef after dinner, who explained us the philosophy of his cooking and especially also the sourcing of the ingredients, from local small producers that apply the rules of biodynamic farming. We'd love to come back!

Of course the place is great, one of the Michelin star restaurants that I enjoyed! Food was superb, especially starter and desert. Main course was good but not great, their wine selection was also decent. But what I liked most in the restaurant were staff- all of them so friendly and helpful! The only reason I did not give 5* is main course, which in my view was not top quality.

We decided to stop for lunch in Tui, but the restaurant we headed to, was closed, so I looked for an alternative in the area, and came across this place. I could not be more pleased with the outcome. The place was beautiful, the staff...MoreThank you very much for your visit, opinion, comments and recommendation. We hope to have you with us. Greetings.

It makes a real difference when you go to a restaurant and the treatment is good. The food was great, but even if it was not as great as it really was, the treatment experience was worth to remember. I would just say that it is the first time in my life that I requested the a la Carta and they convinced me to get the more affordable menu, which was delicious and very complete. A+++

Chef Marcus prepares the best Bacalao al horno In this area. Small menu choice but excellent quality, and outstanding Boquerones marinados. The house white wine from Portugal is excellent. Personal attention from Dona Elsa. Good value for money. José Campo, CHA.

We visited as a family group at late notice for a celebratory birthday meal. The welcome was wonderful, as was the food. For starters we had Salmon, Clams in sauce together with an excellent local wine. The proprietors are extremely friendly and kind. For main course we had the beef and veal, as well as a Salmon main - all beautifully cooked and presented. If you are in the area then it is well worth a detour - we were luck as it was only a few minuted where we were staying in Galicia. Desserts were delicious and cannot really fault anything.
