There are countless wonderful restaurants in Santiago, this is a list of the ones we frequent and recommend the most. Restaurants and bars to have lunch, dinner or a drink:

The second most visited monument in Santiago, it is worth walking around for a while in the morning and have a drink. Sundays and Mondays are the least advisable days as many stalls and shops are closed.

Nave nº5, Mercado de Abastos. Inside the Nave number 5 of the Mercado de Abastos we find different food stands, each one specialized in one thing: oysters, octopus, wine etc.. They have a common menu, you sit down and you can order from the different stalls, fresh and quality product, highly recommended, but do book in advance.

As in the Abastos 2.0, which is also located in the plaza de abastos, only Galician products.

Altamira, a restaurant and hotel, also located in the plaza de abastos, is very good but not so affordable. And if it is just for a drink, any of the bars surrounding the square.

Located very close to the Plaza de Abastos.

  • O Viño, very small and highly recommended wine bar, the owner is a great wine expert, let him advise you.
  • Pinpan, good terrace, not very abundant menu, but highly recommended to sit and have a vermouth.
  • Arco de Mazarelos, in their menu they have the tastiest scallops in Santiago, they serve them with a cauliflower cream, do not leave without trying this marvel.

Parallel street to the famous Rúa do Franco.

  • María Castaña, mythical restaurant in Santiago, very good value for money.
  • Gato Negro, another classic in Santiago, seafood specialists, not one of the cheapest but worth eating if you like seafood.

Wine street par excellence in Santiago, also known for the Paris-Dakar route, but our two favorite restaurants on this street, we know there are more, are:

  • O Papatorio: excellent for meat, seafood and fish. It is not very cheap but it is very good.
    quality, reservations must be made in advance.
  • 46: located at number 46, it is I think the only traditional tavern left on the street, known for its mussels.

We are still in the old town.

  • Don Gaiferos Restaurant. Anything on the menu is delicious, but the croca is our favorite. And the treatment is 10.

Very close to the cathedral and Rúa do Franco.

  • Madialeva, right in front of the police station and before going down to San Clemente square. Exquisite food, with a menu of delicious Asian dishes.
  • A Lareira, located in the San Clemente square, has a very Brazilian menu, delicious meats with surprising and tasty accompaniments.
  • La Moderna, next to the previous one, on Saturdays they usually have a DJ session for the vermouth, very nice and a curious menu as well.
  • O Dezaseis, mythical restaurant in Santiago, Galician food.
  • A Maceta, signature food, not cheap but if you can it is worth eating there, book in advance.

Next to the Mestre Mateo art school and very close to Porta do Camino.

  • Gamela, small restaurant with a terrace in the back, the staff is amazing, one of the waiters is a magician and sometimes does a trick, and the food is spectacular.

Vegetarian restaurants and world cuisine

  • A Corre Vexeta: Vegetarian located in Rúa Rodas.
  • Hervor y Fervor: Vegetarian in Praciña das Penas.
  • Valentina Taqueria: Mexican, the best tacos in Santiago, small place inside some galleries in Montero Rios Street, at the access to the Araguaney Hotel.
  • Pico de Gallo: Mexican, in Rúa San Roque. Highly recommended.
  • La Chida: Mexican, expensive but the place is very nice and the quality is very good.
