Seafood in Santiago de Compostela

  • 4

Hi all, I would just like your suggestions on where to have very good and reasonably priced seafood in SdC. I want to try in particular: oysters, camarones, percebes, zamburinas and slipper lobsters (depending on seasonal availability of course).

For a major Galician city, it seems quite hard to find, on the internet, a seafood place that is universally liked in SdC. I've heard La Tacita D`Juan thrown around here, any other suggestions? If possible, I prefer somewhere where I can eat from a tapas bar.

    1. In all honesty you can stop at most tapas bars to enjoy what you want especially the side-streets near the Cathedral like Rua da Raina. For a real eating experience never to forget I would try Acio. Happy tasting!

      1. Some sea foods are seasonal So before you think about trying them all perhaps a date of your visit to Santiago would be helpful
        There is also a reason why you may not encounter a sea food only restaurant is because this city is not right on the coast. There will be meat on menus too.

        1. Actually April, not this year but the next! I know its early but I take holiday planning as my leisure outside work. Ha.

          Anyone hear of the restaurant Porta Faxeira? Any good?

            Not eat there yet looks really good from their website if you Google it
