You can enjoy some delicious tapas here. The highlights are the steamed mussels. The service is excellent and very friendly. The location is a bit hidden but you can take as a reference a local bar called Vanadero and La Bodega is located in the alley on the corner of the bar.
What would you think of having a good seafood menu? This restaurant is one of my favorites in Vigo, a city that I visit several times per year...
Located in the city center and really close to the port and the pubs area, it just has a problem: sometimes it's overcrowded and they do not take reservations, so it is better to be there quite soon to get a table (around 21 - 21.30 to have dinner).
It has smoking room except on Sunday mornings; as the owner told us, that's when a lot of elderly people come so they get sick because of the smoke.
The place is quite seedy, has no decoration at all and seems more like a tavern. The secret is the food and, moreover, the prices.
The best is the special menu for two: seafood with spider crab, grilled prawns, vinaigrette mussels, clams, oysters, crabs and steamed cockles. Plus two dishes to choose; I normally take ham or some grilled fish.
As a dessert, filloas (galician dessert) with cream and chocolate syrup and a bottle of Ribeiro. All for 60 €.
Magnificient quality and excessive quantity! The service was also fast and eficient. The waiter even reminds me, he's so nice. So, no doubts: 10 points for Rías Baixas. I'll definitely come back!
In O Grove there are so many restaurants that are overwhelmed. Most of them are at the port and after looking at menus we realized that prices are similar. I mean if you offer a dish 1 euro cheaper than the restaurant next door, surely the next dish will be 2 euros more expensive than the other side and so on, meaning that prices are almost the same everywhere. Perhaps that is why we decided to go into town with the intention of finding a more traditional (or less touristy) restaurant, which I think now, frankly, is impossible in O Grove. We ended up in a very average restaurant, the kind without the typical decoration of buoys and nets in all restaurants near fishing ports and perhaps that convinced us. Prices were identical to the rest but it seems to me that the kitchen was a bit more careful. In fact, without equivocation, I ate the best mussels I've ever had in my life, steamed, of course. As we were craving it we ordered paella - exquisite. The rice was ready. The quality seafood was very good in terms of price. They also have a good selection of wines.
Having toured the area near the port of O Grove we decided to dine at this restaurant even though it was on the first street on the harbor, the price was the same as all establishments, but perhaps it was a tad cheaper . What I liked was the terrace which was very spacious with separate tables and excellent care. The amount of dishes on the menu was quite large, in the end we opted for seafood with Alvariño that worked out around 45 euros. From the seafood menu the highlights are razor clams which were delicious. Finally, I tried the oysters - exquisite. After ordering the seafood, we wondered if it might have been better to ask for rations that had more or less quantity and more would have gone for the same price but we were quite satisfied with the seafood. The restaurant's decor is not its forte but from the terrace you can see the harbor area of O Grove. A recommendation is to try to get there around 21h for dinner because at 22:30 all the tables outside were occupied and people stood waiting. I think it's a restaurant I would recommend if you go to O Grove.
A good place to go for tapas at great prices. Treatment is also very nice. The only problem is that sometimes it is difficult to find a spot to sit down, but they always try to make room for a table. Inside there are 2 floors, but in summer they have an outdoor terrace on the street.
Mesón do Mar (Meson del Mar) in O Grove, specializes in traditional cuisine. It has two air-conditioned dining rooms, access for the disabled and a seafood aquarium. The specialties are seafood and fish of the estuary, lobster with rice, homemade tapas and seafood paella. It also has an extensive menu with wines and desserts.
After a few laps by Cambados we got carried away by the comments about this place from others. It is a nice and cozy place. With good food and great ingredients. Besides the menu they also offered 2 special menus. We chose one of these. € 20 per head. Excellent value. Pretty dishes and the service is a luxury. Can not be more friendly.
Having read about this Pazo and its beautiful gardens on Minube, I could not wait to visit this kind of neo-classical architecture mansion. It has huge barn, but what interested me most was its great gardens from the late 19th century with a large fountain, vineyards, loft, wineries and even pool to relax in during the summer. Although at this time the restaurant was closed, I assume that it will open in the summer. They hold events of all kinds: conferences, meetings, weddings, etc. Strolling through the gardens is lovely because they have a variety of exotic and native species with different colors like camellias that bloom during this time of year. Therefore I consider these gardens of great botanical interest as there are many foreign and native species. Guided tours can be scheduled by phone.
Today, I was looking to eat in the Hispanic area. I found this restaurant with a menu for 10 euros with a choice of 3 firsts and two seconds, plus dessert and coffee. The service was very good and the site was very cool. I ate salad for my first, and meat, or caldeiro, for my second. Everything was really delicious. My girlfriend ordered the sirloin skewer and it was delightful, for 12 euros. I recommend it!
On my recent trip to the Rías Baixas, the staff at the apartments where we stayed recommended a place to eat: the restaurant Casa Zulema. Specializing in traditional cuisine, the best thing about it (besides the food, of course) is its magnificent terrace overlooking the sea and the garden. In addition to seafood and fresh fish from the river, they serve some good squid with rice, flavored rice with lobster and amazing baked cheesecake, all made with local produce. All washed down with a delicious Albariño. With its great value for money and its friendly staff, Zulema House is the perfect restaurant to eat on a summer day after a morning at the beach. Interestingly, the Spanish football team ate there in 2001.....so it must be good.
The restaurant O Caranguexo Domaio is located in the municipality of Pontevedra of Moana and has been open to the public for 100 years, initially as a tavern for local sailors and salted fish. Homemade traditional Galician cuisine is offered. In addition to fish and shellfish from the estuary you can enjoy delicious traditional dishes with chickpeas and fish and noodle soup. The atmosphere is very nice and from its conservatory dining room you can enjoy beautiful views of the sea due to its location on a small beach next to the harbor.
