Our thoughts on Eirado Restaurant Pontevedra

Eirado restaurant taster menu 9 courses is a delight for fish lovers. While the desserts will please anyone with a sweet tooth. The casual atmosphere was relaxed and felt modern and the service was not overbearing. The wine selection being a mix of new and more traditional were perfect for lunchtime. The food combined the modern Spanish tastes with an addition of South America. We especially loved course 2 the Atun Pouca Picante and the Torrado de Cafe for dessert was delicious. We will certainly come back again when we are next in Pontevedra.
