    Casa Fidel O Pulpeiro

    For more than 50 years, simple, spotless Fidel's has been serving up perfectly done pulpo á feira, Galicia's quintessential octopus dish (ask for some cachelos, sliced boiled potatoes, to accompany it). Plenty of shellfish, empanadas and omelettes are also on offer. You could even go for an octopus and tetilla cheese bocadillo!
