The pilgrim meal at the Paradour in Leon was outstanding for 30 Euros. Probably a $100.00 meal in the states.

I enjoyed two delicious meals at the Parador in Santiago. This was at lunchtime and (partially) to escape from the incessant rain. I'd like to emphasise what has been said before on this forum: the Spanish lunchtime is a better option for pilgrims than the late dinner time in up-market restaurants!

I totally agree with @MyDestinationGalicia - A Horta do Obradoiro is fantastic! More details (and photos that remind me again how delicious that meal was) in my blog:

Come on!!! You should be banned for posting any blog like this... I'm so much in pain that I won't be able to walk a Camino this year and then I have to read your blog and LOOK at your photos... It's just not fair :D

I'm sorry!!! But I can relate ... after finishing that camino where I ate at A Horta, I couldn't walk without pain for nearly 15 months. But I'm pain-free now and doing LOTS more blogging about the delicious food in Galicia! Let's just call it a feast for your eyes until you can get back there! ;):p:p

El Mesón de Luisi" C/ Ortega y Gasset, 17 (Plaza Luis del Olmo),Ponferrada. One of the best meals of our trip this year and a reasonable price. This was lunchtime and we were not in Ponferrada to try their evening menu.
We visited Ponferrada to see the Templar Castle. The restaurant is down from the castle, cross the road and walk over the bridge. Turn left at the roundabout and it is on the left.

When we arrived there at lunchtime on a day in April this year the owner told us in a very unfriendly way to go somewhere else. It was busy, okay, but his way of handling us was absolutely below zero.

After 1000 Pilgrims menus sometimes you just have to splurge. My vote for the best fine dining on Camino is Restaurante Serrano in Astorga.
Went there for our Anniversary. Actually it was so good we went back a second night.

Your Recommendation?
We had a great birthday supper at comosapiens in Atapuerca. And on the Via de la Plata, La

And on the VDLP at Caceres, a delicious meal at Madruela.

Yes, we are staying at Matias now, and the pizza is awesome, not the frozen stuff. In the evening, go to their courtyard and enjoy a mojito. The double rooms are not expensive..
All of the aforementioned above posts on great restaurants have me salivating and leave me feeling cheated through my own fault. :( Although the food I ate was usually pretty good (with a winner periodically), I was always eating pilgrim meals, menu del dia and the occasional racione.

La Esencia, la Puebla, Burgos. Amazing gourmet menu for 17 euro and the best wine. In the old town. Next door to the hotel Jacobeo. The best meal of the whole Camino! And I went back twice!

In Santiago, I like Garum. Creative food, great wine, well-informed staff.
I am also a fan of Casa Marcelo, and Hortas (right across the street.)

Out on the trail I seek out Pizzeria La Competencia in Leon, Oviedo, Burgos, and Ponferrada -- one of the best value Menus del Dia anywhere.

For me, Casa Marcelo was heaven on earth

The food at Casa Marcelo is indeed marvellous, but when you have just walked a few hundred kilometers, their high stools are not the best!

Sometimes you just need to treat yourself!

WOW was that each? Stayed there last August and paid €99 for a double room and breakfast for two, never appreciated what a bargain it was!
