A new restaurant has recently opened in Ribadeo and it well worth a visit if you are staying at Granero del Burro, the luxury self catering accommodation in Trabada, Galicia, Northern Spain. It is a 'parilla' (Grill) and is the only one in central Ribadeo. The building that it is in is an old Carpenter's factory and they have retained the old glass ceiling from it.
It is a wonderful airy building that has been restored very sympathetically. It has huge windows looking out over the back streets of Ribadeo, and 2 enormous diagrams on the walls explaining the various cuts of meat of both a pig and a bull. The bar is long and thin with designer graffiti behind it, and is a great place to go for just a drink. The toilets have an interesting feature - a huge copper pot as a sink!
The food is great with a good selection of both meat and fish. The 'Churrasco' (pork ribs) are a must and the Pulpo a la plancha (grilled Octopus) is fantastic too. The fillet steak is another divine treat! The grill is in the restaurant so you can watch them prepare your meal. The waiters and waitresses are extremely helpful and friendly.
There is another 'La Quinta' in Foz but the one is Ribadeo must form part of a visit to the town.
