Thanks Ivar.

Reading the forum before starting work is not a good idea - I'm now itching to go back to Santiago for a meal at Casa Marcelo. It's a fab restaurant.

They will be :)
We have many young kids walking the Camino , normally broke or relying still on the oldies , and we on this forum have discussions on which" albergue" charges too much.......normally 8-10 euro plus a night per person and now we are ;
Listing restaurants that would normally charge 80 euros per head ............for the normal pilgrim
10 nights plus accommodation in an albergue
When the people look at the Camino do you really think they are considering these restaurants.
Ivar I recommend San Clemente in SdC
Kanga....... Quay..its very close to home.
One is just down the steps from the post office in SDC and the other everyone knows.

Have you been to either of the above?
If the answer is no then how /why would you cross this continent to dine .

I do! Casa Marcelo serves a great meal, and it is good to see it has its star back. I went after being blocked from the free Parador meal for the third time by the same ten pilgrims who wait all day! I have been to Michelin starred restaurants in Pamplona, Barcelona, and Logrono as well (Logrono lost its star a few years ago). With all respect to budget pilgrims, caminos really have no limits, up or down.

Camino del Norte has more three-star restaurants than anywhere except France!

I dined at Casa Marcelo 4 years ago and greatly enjoyed the experience. This year I was unsure about the Japanese fusion style and was debating whether to eat there or not. What finally put me off was having to sit on high stools. When you have just walked 200 Kms on the Camino, a little more comfort is required!

When I was researching my VDLP trip I definitely was researching food options. There is no way I am going to eat at a Michelin starred place every night or even every week. But if there are a couple that take your fancy and you have the funds...why not? I certainly like to know where to find them especially if they have a signature dish that really represents the town I am visiting.
I ate at El Rinconcillo in Monesterio on the VDLP having seen their menu on line, examples of their recipes and lots of great reviews. The idea of that meal kept me going on the uphill stretches in that first week!

The idea of a Michelin-starred dinner will definitely give me added motivation on my Camino.

There's another thing, though: a top-quality meal should leave you feeling satisfied but not stuffed. Many cheaper options emphasise quantity over quality, and you run the risk of overeating and going to bed feeling bloated and uncomfortable.

some and then more. see my signature.
And extra bonus : Michelin rated restos in Spain are less pricey than let's say Scandinavian countries, France or my country Belgium.
I can vouch for the quality of some barcelonese establishments !!

Am now saving for a dinner at Quique Dacosta (Denia).....a woman must have some dreams!!

We found a charming little hotel in Issdudun on the Vezelay route.

"would you like a reservation in the restaurant also?" we were asked "It is just around the corner."

"Well, it depends....is it a good restaurant?"

"oh yes, it's not bad "

A few hours later we went to the restaurant. My wife asks "ummmm, did you bring a credit card? That appears to be a Michelin star in the window"

No, he was back home laughing at the brownie points he picked up with the in-laws. He did take me as an unemployed vagabond and give me really good job though, so he had no guilt.

Those starred restaurants are expensive, but I remember them long after more many more modest places are long forgotten. Particularly in France, they are part of the culture and well worth working into a trip if you can somehow budget it.

Mighty effort doing the VDLP first up Donna,
My point in having a go at the OP was that unless you are walking the Norte or the Madrid camino's [Castilian list above] you are wasting your time looking for the Michelin star restr's.
I tried to point out that 95% of pilgrims stay in alberques and dine on the pilgrims menus.
Its very different however in France

We are all foodies Carol thats why we return each year ..........wine , dine and loose the fat.
However as i have said previously unless you are in France or on the Norte you are pushing up hill for a Michelin.
I also cannot imagine all those smelly , wet , grumpy and tight $$ pilgrims dressing up in the alberques to visit the local *** restr.

There's another thing, though: a top-quality meal should leave you feeling satisfied but not stuffed. Many cheaper options emphasise quantity over quality, and you run the risk of overeating and going to bed feeling bloated and uncomfortable.
Enjoy the dining in Madrid Rob , get there early and take a few extra quid.
You will enjoy the quality @ Segovia and Valladolid and then my friend you are going to enjoy what the villages offer and in most cases its spuds, chooks and pork done a thousand different ways,

The very best food I had was not in a fancy restaurant even though the restaurant I went to in Monesterio rates as #2. "Me gusta comer" in Rionegro del Puente on the Camino Sanabres is the place I recommend. A wonderful chef who prepares the food in front of you but also so that he can glean your reaction to each part of the meal and takes real pleasure in your enjoyment of his food. The best meal of the trip and it was a menu del dia. It did come at the end of a fantastic day walking from Santamarta which was one of the nicest stages of the VDLP, and the albergue was lovely and I had good company...so to come across this marvellous food just topped everything off. I'm sure this guy, if he wanted, has the creativity and skill needed to be Michelin standard. But I think he is the sensible one in that he has a lovely relaxed life, has time to paint and be creative, has time to be involved with his family and has a business that is well supported by locals. Pilgrims allow him to practise on different tastebuds and get different feedback. It's a good balance and I think that is something Spaniards do very well.

A hiking trip in Cap de Creus some years ago took me right past El Bulli at lunchtime. Sadly, even if they'd have taken a pair of sweaty walk-ins, they'd shut down just a few months earlier.

Yeah, but I saw that 97.32% of all statistics cited on internet forums are made up on the spot;). Of course in Spain, there is the constant threat of dropping over dead of starvation waiting for the better restaurants to open.

Maybe Ivar can give some stats on how many walk annum and how many use alberques?
How many beds are available in each village and the ratio of beds in alberques to pensions and hotels?

Finally can you imagine the odd pilgrim walking into a city or town or village and expecting a vacant chair in a *** star,
or
Planning his /her day in ???? weather to reach a city or town or village just to dine out ""IF"" the chair was available.
We have enough trouble walking and competing against the elements to worry about this stop over.
However Newfydog if a short day could be arranged walking into a place with a * or ** i would try and dine there, but a *** , no hope.

Better still planning his /her day in ???? weather to reach a city/ town or village just to dine out ""IF"" the chair was available.
We do that every trip, at least in some sort of ***ed restaurant. We have indeed planned our stages to match the restaurants. We have been pretty lucky finding a table, and had some memorable meals. Had a wonderful roast goat near the cathedral in Burgos. Ate in another place with a thank you note from the king of Spain framed on the wall next to my chair.

True, I didn't get to go to those places when I was a student, calculating calorie/centime ratios in the grocery stores, but now we are lucky enough see a different piece of the culture. And judging by all the fellow pilgrims that have joined us, not that odd either.

This thread needs some pictures......here's a good start:

Camino Inglés (from Ferrol June 2014)
Camino Portuguese (from Tui May 2015)
I enjoyed several Michelin star restaurants in Galicia this year on both on and off the English and Portuguese routes. Deals can be found (for example, Restaurant Silabario located in Hotel Colón in Tui has a menu for only 29 euro).

In dark jeans, casual shoes and a t-shirt, which was my 'off-camino' wardrobe, I didn´t feel uncomfortable nor out of place at all when I visited Casa Solla (near Pontevedra, off the Camino Portuguese) nor at A Estación in Cambre (off of the Coruña arm of the Camino Ingles, and very close to the A Coruña airport). The two chefs at A Estación could not have been more welcoming when I stopped by in May. And the food ... well, seafood is the specialty in Galicia and this menu was exceptional!

This dish was the star of the show ... monkfish over octopus rice, over thinly sliced octopus with baby veg. Over the top!

Thanks for posting the list @ivar - I look forward to trying a few more places on the next trip!

Others on the forum have said this previously, but a great tip is to eat at these lovely restaurants at lunchtime (2.00 p.m.). Tired and hungry pilgrims cannot wait till dinner at 9.00 p.m.!

I hope they are all in the Camino Places app!
If you include Lisbon and Porto on the Portuguese Camino [as i'm sure most do] then I think Ivar has ONE 2 star ** and THREE one *star missing.

Great post and photos - thanks for sharing! I stayed near Cambre on my first night on the Ingles - so I must have been very close to A Estacion as I was having a soggy Bocadilla con Atun for my dinner. Drat!

Jeans and a clean T shirt were totally fine in Casa Marcelo too - and thankfully no one noticed my hiking sandals with socks, or my weary pilgrim gait :)

A simple dinner is wonderful, but not a soggy one! The worst!

On the Ingles last year, the absolute worst meal we had was in Betanzos ... the pulpo was so bad at this place near our hotel that I actually felt terrible that the poor animal gave its life to be mistreated in such a way. It was only after I returned home did I learn how famous Betanzos is for their style of tortilla. To be so close and to have missed it was remedied this year when I visited Galicia twice, returning to Betanzos and having the tortilla both times (the best at Meson O Pote). I was happy to be able to have a re-d0. :D

Just looked at their menus. Menu del dia at 22€ amd at the Bistro starting ar 15€. Puts the Pilgrim menu at 10 oe 12€ to shame!
I'm sure this would be worth the short taxi ride from Santo Domingo de Calzada.

When we stay in Santo Domingo de Calzada its in The Parador.
When we dine its there for a late lunch and on the opposite corner to the Parador for dinner.
The food in both is very hard to beat .
Not practical going to Echaurren and no guarantee of a seat.

Perhaps we could add a special mention for those that provide clients with the proper clothes to be allowed in ;)
If you tried to get in a *** or even a ** star Michelin anywhere in the world in clothes not respectful of the restaurant i would say 97.32% would say they are full. [ heard those figures before]

I'm sure this would be worth the short taxi ride from Santo Domingo de Calzada.
The day before Santo Domingo normally commences in Navarrete a minimum of 7 hours
or
Maybe Ventosa [ great hotel there] which is maybe 6 hours away
or
Maybe Najera , the closest maybe only 5 hours away.
Accommodation starts @ noon therefore none unless you start in Najera.
The other commencing points say no lunch @ Echaurren
6.30am start plus 6 or 7 hours is now 12.30 -- 1.30pm @ earliest , you are a bit tired because its flat this section yet beautiful so you stop at the many spots , you arrive and shower and new clothes and now the taxi and then the meal ??

Now with dinner
If in albergue all the others are cooking or out @ restaurants @ 6.30-7.00pm , you are dressing
A *** or ** star normally commence @ 8pm @ the earliest..........you are alone at this time in Spain.
Taxi there , hurried meal.....where is the 5 course and port , taxi back and then in bed before the rooms are closed @ 10pm
Give the normal person a break
I think 97.32 % of pilgrims would not even know where this restaurant is or be bothered to venture there.
I think the other 2.68% would dine in Santo Domingo at the Parador.

If you so desire to eat there;
Stay in a very comfortable room @ Casa Victoria in Ciruena [ Maria is a lovely lady and its a fun village especially if the priest visits the only bar ] then book into Rey Pedro in Santo Domingo.
You have now had a short day stayed in private rooms the for two nights and the taxi awaits your 20 euro trip each way to this restaurant 14 km from the camino.
Thats how it is out there , sorry to gloss over the romantics.

Simply has not happened. I'm not sure what qualifies as "respectful", but we have yet to run into a dress code.

Some of those places are not as pretentious as you might think. We ate at a *** in France with their fresh chickens wandering among the outside tables.

I wear long pants, and a shirt that buttons, but both are super light and suitable for outdoor use.. My wife adds a scarf and wears some kind of black walking shoe she refers to as "nun shoes", which are nice for walking around town but pass as something other than trainers.

We once overheard an old couple at another table mention to each other about "those hikers in here", I guess thinking we didn't understand the French. Maybe that was Thornley:). The restaurant staff have all been very nice.

A big difference between country France and Spain and thats the list Ivar gave Newfydog.
We have also the same clothes but have Espadrille's on the feet and yes it works.
However if 200,000 people walk CSD each year i will not accept that the even 200 people have dined whilst on Frances, Norte, VLP or Portuguese per annum...........thats .oo1%.
Not on in the normal scheme of things.

In Galicia the best pulpo is found at fairs. I am remembering now the Parga fair (2 Sundays every month) that it is very close to Camino del Norte ( Baamonde ---Miraz). They have copper pots and pulpo is cooked in real time.
In towns, I think the best places are Pulperias. There is a Mesón Pulpería in Betanzos that I think is good but rather expensive.
