yes...
Everytime I've been to dinner in Santiago I've been really disappointed... I'm sure it's just been bad luck but... Please someone recommend a good restaurant for us.

I do appreciate it will be 12 October so choice will be limited but where would you recommend?

Thanks 😁

Another vote for Casa Manolo. Only pilgrims there when I went, but they seemed to know what pilgrims want (sorry, need ;)). It's fast and furious, so if you want something a bit more luxurious, maybe not . . . however,
I loved it. Suited us as a small "camino family", who had met up again in Santiago and wanted something good, cheap and cheerful before moving on to other bars around town.

Three times, and I've had the same experience. Maybe some of the ones mentioned are good?

I didn’t know that. It is such a nice place, I will make a point of going there for lunch next time I’m in Santiago. Such nice people, too. I stayed at the Costa Vella for years until I got hooked on San Martín Pinario. The family also owns the Altair and one other hotel a few doors down.

But @LesBrass, I think the foodies on the forum would tell you that one of the places to go is Casa Marcelo. I think @laineylainey was there recently, but I haven’t heard what she thought about it. It’s a little place with the name handwritten on the window. Go down the stairs in front of the parador, past the street where the pilgrims office is, a block or two and it’s on your left.

I’ve also been to the place @natefaith recommended — dezaseis — and liked it very much. For down home heavy nothing gourmet, Bodeguilla San Roque is also a good choice. Great pimientos de padrón.

This place got a Michelin star a year ago (so, for the foodies, no pilgrims menu here):

I think Casa Marcelo also has a Michelin star now! I had an amazing lunch there in June - a very memorable experience but yes it’s definitely not the usual pilgrim price!!! But so wonderful, oysters, the most amazing salad (cucumber granita anyone?) and steak tartare. Fantastic.

Wow... So many replies! You wonderful people thank you so much!

@kirkie NO blisters (well a teeny tiny one). I need to find some Lone Peak 3s... I think I saw some on US amazon. They just work for my feet 😊

We're staying in Casa Felisa I think?

We will go through this list tomorrow and choose somewhere wonderful... Thank you all so much! (must sleep now... Early start tomorrow 🤣)

Glad you got a place to go. If I can throw in a suggestion. Last year a fantastic pilgrim friend took 7of us, yes 7 to dinner at the Parador. It was a fantastic dinner. I had the waiter order for me. We shared multiple hot d'oeuvres. I had an great fish dish with delicious vegetables and the dessert was a house special that was to die for. Don't remember what anything was called as I left it all to our wonderful waiter. Don't know the cost either as my friend got the bill!!! Great night!

Of the dozen or so restaurants I have tried in Santiago, To Taberna do Bispo is my favorite. Yes, it's a tapas place, but their variety and service easily can make it a proper meal.

I’ve been here three time and absolutely love their tapas. Great with a group and affordable as well. The razor clams are wonderful.

In Rua Nova next to Pilgrim House. Unpretentious. Reasonably priced menu. Nice pasta.

Surprised & disappointed to hear that - on 7 visits to SdC we’ve still to have a bad meal (and in no rush to do so!).

Our all round middle of the road favourite is
Los sobrinos del padre near to the Cathedral square, El Hospidario and Hotel San Miguel.
Family run and good, well priced home made food to suit all tastes.

Buen Camino and enjoy Santiago!

Hi LesBrass, We always visit Restaurante Rey, Rua de Abril, Ares,4, just around the corner from Pension Campanas de San Juan. Welcoming host and very good food.

My favourite tapas bar - I have been there several times for excellent tapas & also with friends where we sat at a table & shared a wonderful selection of Galician delicacies.
