One of the best restaurants in Sanxenxo facing the beautiful marina ! Wonderful at lunch or dinner - choose a good table at the terrace or inside if the day/night is a bit chilly and try the many suggestions available ! All the seafood is so fresh and direct from the Atlantic that all you have to do is try... More

Sanxenxo is a great place to visit in the fall, it is a tourist town with very few tourist once summer is over. I was in Sanxenxo visiting family and they took me to this restaurant, and told me it is their favorite for special occasions. My cousins took care of most of the ordering and it was all delicious.... More

While staying in Sanxenxo we were recommended to visit Carmen by our hotel. We arrive just as the staff was finishing there lunch. We are greeted by the owner who promptly takes us to a table outside. Marino, who happens to be the son-in-law greets us and begins to explain the menu. We get the usual "everything is fresh" speech.... More

We found ourselves in Sanxenxo on business before the beginning of the Spanish tourist season. Many restaurants along the harbor side were not yet open for the season. The restaurant proved to be a good choice. Food was well prepared and nicely presented. The service was friendly and attentive.

Really nice lunch. Great setting. Sat at table on the promenade. Very friendly staff. Food is good homemade fare, particularly recommend the timbal of asparagus fois gras and poached egg. Delicious. Tasty lobster and chicken salads too. Would definitely go back.

Stopped in on a cold rainy night to this small restaurant and was surprised at every turn not only by the quality of the food but their exemplary service as well.

Stopped off here on spec soon after they opened for the evening as we'd seen the restaurant full at lunchtime. Lucky we came when we did as most tables were booked and it filled quickly. The food was excellent and we were advised really well by the most helpful of waiters who, thank goodness for us, spoke English. But the... More
