Casa do Pulpo

Galician in Ourense

Facing the cathedral wall across a narrow street, this local favourite doesn't just do perfect pulpo (octopus) but also other tasty Galician items such as zamburiñas (small scallops), xoubas (pilchards) and raxo (spicy pork chunks), plus combination bites including anchovies with cheese or solomillo (tenderloin) with cheese, bacon and red pepper.

They do tasty pinchos (tapas) as well as raciones (full-plate serves), and you can perch in the bar or sit down in the neat rear dining room.
