Seafood in Santiago de Compostela

deadstroke86 Feb 26, 2013 06:54 AM

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.

    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!

      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.

        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?
