If you want to have Galician/Spanish food in an unpretentious place, this is very good. Don't be appalled by the long line of people waiting, it goes pretty quickly. Good tapas and good prices.

A classic in Pontevedra for tapas. Everything is good quality and very good value for money. Friendly service with no thrills. Local traditional dishes. Very good quality of fish. A reference among tapas places. Tends to get crowded on weekends.
