What ever happened whilst we were in Santiago I was going to eat at Casa Marcelo. There is a no reservation policy which presents a challenge. The Spanish tend to eat later than most and when you're on holiday you tend to adapt a more laissez faire approach to things. A potent mix!! We had no problems checking in at... More

Wonderful lunch - let them decide what we would eat and it was fabulous. The crab was out of this world, artichoke with fresh foie fabulous, tuna on bed of rice spectacular and pudding - mango and coconut - yummy. The scorpion fish was beautiful but missed slightly. Our wine - an Albariño - was best of breed. We are... More

My wife and I visited Santiago during late December with my parents and teenage kids. First night we arrived 15 minutes after they opened and no tables were available. We came back the next night, arrived early and were not disappointed. Waiter asked if he could just order on our behalf, which I usually never allow, but in this case... More

Without trip advisor I am sure you would not easily find this restaurant at this time of year. It has a very low profile entrance but don't be put off by that. When we saw the number of reviews and high rating we thought it would be good to try. The atmosphere is buzzing with open kitchens so that you... More

Casa Marcelo presented tapas in such an amazing way. The ingredients are so fresh that it brought out the true experience of the local products. It was such a memorable dinner and every tapas is done is precision and the taste is unforgettable.

Food was good, new flavours and very well presented. We arrived at 1:30pm due to no option of pre-reservation, the restaurant was already full at 1:50pm. The chef suggested what should we eat and portion size too. We arrived very very hungry and after paying 80€ for 2 people, we felt nearly full. The portion size of the bread is... More

The best restaurant we've been during our stay in this part of Spain. It's a mix of Japanese and Iberian food, excellent combinations. They served us some small dishes, very, very tasty. You can ask the Chef to surprise with his choices of dishes. It was not cheap, but the price was ok. There is a big table where all... More

We had the best time at Casa Marcelo. The best part was that we didn't have to choose the plates and the chef surprised us with delicious meals. The timing of service was perfect and the food was indescribable.

Sat at the bar and let the chef take us on a stellar journey. Each dish stood on it's own, but the john dory was a knock out. Staff knows their wine and how to make you feel welcomed and nourished. Definitely not traditional and well rounded in presenting unique tastebud stimulation with each presentation. Energetic atmosphere while retaining the... More
