Our B&B operator had recommended her favorite seafood restaurant for dinner but it didn’t open until 9 pm — hard for Americans! So we went with the number-one rated TA restaurant, which was this one, and it did not disappoint. We walked right in without reservations, as we did not find anything in Galicia busy in early May.

The staff was very sweet and rustled up for us a young staffer (I think a family member) whom they said proudly was their best English speaker. We appreciated her! We made up a tapas-style dinner of all the seafood we’d been wanting to try now that we had reached Galicia in our three-week wander around northern Spain.

First, they had raw oysters, which we hadn’t been finding anywhere else (at least not for less than 3.5 euros apiece, yikes). They tasted perfectly of the sea, and we loved them. Second, we tried octopus Galician style, which we liked so much I think we ordered this dish 3 of the next 4 days. Third, we had scallops cooked in the shell which were delicious (our young server advised us to look for the big scallops in our travels called vieira I think but we never did find them). Fourth, we had the spider crab pate with a wonderful flavor. And of course a delicious bottle of local Albariño that cost less than a cocktail in the US. We also had a light and artfully presented dessert.

Loved this place, which is in the heart of town and has a cafe on the first floor and a dining room on the second. I’d make a reservation in busier times to make sure you get in.

We really enjoyed our meal and ate too much in order to sample lots of things. We found the tortilla one of the very best (huge) and had a gorgeous fresh salad. The wine produced by the owners Pepa y Loba is particularly nice. We enjoyed a chat and a drink with the owner Alvaro afterward and must say a word about Berta our lovely and helpful server.

So we first visited this gem of a restaurant 2 years ago. It was small, quaint with delicious food. We visited again a couple of days ago and the success of the restaurant is evident from the moment you walk in. There is a 2nd floor dining room now and staff serving other than the owner. The food is Michelin worthy cooked by the co-owner Maite. Expansion has had no effect on the quality of the food or service.

A must go when visiting Cambados!

Local Kitchen .not complicated Fresh seafood very popular with the local population which is a very good sign. The service is very friendly and very good .worthwhile to make a detour.
