    Follas Novas

    It's well worth venturing about 400m east of Praza de Compostela to this small, unpretentious restaurant, where quality ingredients form the basis of top-class fare such as grilled shellfish, saquitos rellenos (mixed pork, leeks and mushrooms inside a pancake 'bag') and perfectly done fish or beef options. Attentive service seals the deal. Try to reserve as it fills up fast.

    Othilio Bar

    Friendly service by a busy team complements expertly prepared fish, meat, shellfish and desserts here. It's contemporary Galician fare – steak tartare, lightly cooked marinated salmon – and very popular, so book ahead or get there in good time.

    Cafetería Maracaibo

    The Maracaibo, facing Praza de Compostela, does just about everything a good city cafe should, bustling with an all-types crowd and busy waiters from breakfast through morning coffee to lunch, afternoon coffee, and evening and late-night drinks. Good coffee, inexpensive cocktails, toasted sandwiches and platos combinados (combination plates of meat/fish/eggs and vegies) are among its drawcards.

    Rúa Pescadería

    Short Rúa Pescadería, in the lower part of the old town, is jammed with people tucking into fresh seafood. From about 10.30am until 3.30pm you can buy oysters from the ostreras (shuckers) here, and sit down to eat them with a drink at one of the restaurants. Oysters and albariño wine are a traditional Vigo Sunday-morning hangover cure.

    Estrella Galicia Vigo

    This beer hall run by what many would agree is Spain's best commercial brewer, Estrella de Galicia, is good not just for excellent cerveza de bodega (unpasteurised beer) but also for tapas or more substantial dishes such as Iberian ham and fried eggs, monkfish brochette, steaks or even squid bocadillos (long-bread sandwiches).

    Taverna da Curuxa

    This pleasant stone tavern just off Praza da Constitución mixes the traditional and contemporary in decor and menu. Fish and meat and their rice dishes are all well prepared, and the smoked-trout-and-avocado salad is a standout. They have a decent selection of vegetarian dishes too.
