Abastos 2.0

Top choice galician in Santiago de Compostela

This highly original, incredibly popular marketside eatery offers new dishes concocted daily from the market's offerings, with an emphasis on seafood. Inside is one long 12-seat table where they serve a daily changing menu for €30-plus: reservations are highly advisable. Outside are a few tables (not reservable) where they serve small- to medium-size individual dishes. Almost everything in both sections is delicious.

Across the street is their marginally more conventional dining room, Ghalpón (open 1.30 to 3.30pm Tuesday to Saturday, and 9 to 11pm Thursday to Saturday). Here you'll find half a dozen tables and a €35 five-course menu, with the option of four paired wines for €12. The seafood is generally fantastic, but no matter what's on offer, you're likely to love the great flavours and delicate presentation.
