I’m from Coruna, but I’ve lived and traveled across the world, and one of the main reasons for returning is the Bebediero, a place I’ve known since 20 years ago and that has only gotten better over the years. I have many friend that only say they’re visit me in Coruna if I take them to Bebedeiro, but it can be hard to get a table at times.
A commentary about the translation of the name. Bebedeiro doesn’t mean drinker, but rather the place where one drinks. The name comes from bebedeiro of rock for animals that animals As it hindered/obstructed the distribution of tables, it was put up against the wall, which made it lose some of its local flavor, but allows for more people and more friends inside.
The scampi with provencal sauce is a must, the sea bass pastries are for the truly hungry, the ox tail, and other meat-based dishes. The albarino of the house is really good and pretty cheap. They also have classic wine from the Rioja area. I recommend the Monasterio de Yuso.
This bar is always chocker block so be patient and get ready to enjoy some good homemade cakes and snacks of all kinds for very good prices (2 rods, 2 super cakes, 2 sausage skewers with potatoes and a piece of pie = 8 €) to be in the center of A Coruña. While not a gourmet place I recommend it for its authenticity.
It's a little far from the tourist area, but it's worth it. There are only 9 dishes on the menu, but there's nothing else needed. The octopus is delicious. The portions aren't very big, so you'll definitely order more. The raxo is also recommended. The prices are affordable, a ration of octopus is 10.50 euros.
We've visited several times, and it was as gorgeous as always, but I want to highlight two things. For one, the reindeer carpaccio, and gin and tonic in three textures. This dessert is amazing, a novelty and I was left amazed. Don't hesitate to try it if you have it, it wasn't on the menu. Restaurant 10/10, as usual.
Dinner for 4 greedy people, we love this place, Lots of varied dishes, colorful, and above all delicious, plus speedy! I also have to congratulate them on their customer service and care. We came to a piece of Hellenic culture, with good explanations of each dish and a little culture overall. It is a place with quiet music and friendly atmosphere, perfect and highly recommended,Keep it up!
One of the most popular restaurants in La Coruña, with over 50 years of history and two sites in the 4 Caminos - El Corte Ingles area. The first location is in Calle Ramón y Cajal, number 45. Tel: 981 282 062, but I prefer the one in Fernandez Latorre. The recipes showcase Galicia at its best, with supreme of halibut, cod confit, and hake cheeks. In terms of meat, you can't fault the pork with turnips, entrecote of beef or the lamb. In autumn they organize food festivals with game and mushrooms.
This might be the world's smallest bar, so small that the door is within the bar itself. The facade is just over 2 metres wide, but the tiny size is at odds with the large kitchen. They prepare high quality food at unbeatable prices. In summer, there's a miniscule terrace if you want to smoke. They offer traditional Galician pork dishes, stuffed potatoes, prawns, roast ham, and sardines.
My disastrous experience when I found out that they gave us packed food that goes directly into a microwave. It's shameful food like in schools which is all served in lunch boxes except for the salad. Even the pizza bases were pre-made.
La Toscana goes almost unnoticed because it is in the Puerta Real area of bus stops which is not exactly the best place for a restaurant, but it's a cozy place with great homemade pizzas. The risottos are also worthwhile, and the desserts are outstanding, especially the white chocolate pudding. At the weekend there is live piano music to create a romantic atmosphere.
Calle Estrella is the most traditional tapas street in Coruña. It's quite old, but every few years it gets revitalised by a new bar. A Cunqueiro Tavern is particularly recommended as a good place to have a glass of wine and some tapas. The decor is nice, with exposed stone.
By mistake this restaurant is listed as being in Coruña del Conde, Burgos, when in fact it is in Coruña, Galicia. It's one of the most traditional restaurants in the city, with a wide range of options, including garlic mushrooms, patatas bravas with garlic sauce, octopus, raxo, and Spanish tortilla. Their Galician bread is first class, and here you can eat very well in a charming environment.
One of the best-value wineries in Coruña and 5 mins from the Plaza de España. It has been decorated with abundant Galician paintings. The specialties include omelette, clams, razors, rice stews and Cariocas, as well as a rich Galician coffee. You can eat well for 10 € per person
This tavern stands in the historic site of Miau de la Marina, in a building where trawlers were once kept. It's a typical brewery, with an economical menu of the day and a variety of foods on offer: tortilla, octopus, peppers, croquetas, calamares, and raxo. To drink, there are some wines, and a limited selection of beer and sangria, for the tourist. They have a terrace that's open all year, because it is quite protected from the weather. Open daily from 10:30 h to 17:00 h and from 19:30 h to 01:00 h and the tavern accepts credit cards.
In the most traditional wine area of Coruña, la Estrella, this timeless place has been reinvented and now offers, in pristine white décor, fine dining. There are pinchos on the bar, or hot meals, like crab baskets with toasted almonds. Of the tapas, the duck tenderloin with goat cheese and fig jam, and the baked mushrooms stuffed with sauteed shrimp are noteworthy.
About 100 beers available - artisan Spanish and foreign, Belgian, German, British, American ... a huge variety in terms of types and styles. The cuisine blends traditional and modern, suiting all tastes and budgets. The seasonal tapas menu changes every 15 days. Dishes are designed to be paired with beer, and there are menus for groups for only 7.80 euros from Monday to Friday from 13:00 to 16:00 hours, etc ... Drinks on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4 euros ... Coffees, teas, chocolates ... And a friendly welcome to make you feel at home. Open daily from 12:00 to 16:00 hours, and from 18:00 hours to close, except on Monday morning.
Although there are 2 creperies from the same chain in the city, the one in Riego de Agua was the first and, in my opinion, still the best. The menu varies between savoury crepes, sweet crepes and salads. They use very exotic ingredients and bold flavours, the rustic decor is lovely, and the price is perfect for young people. The most common drinks here are wine, cava and sangria. The other branch is overlooking the maritime promenade.
A Michelin-starred restaurant, located on the promenade of La Coruña. It offers Galician cuisine, with elegance and balance. Very good ingredients. Worth trying. Lunch or dinner in this place is sure to be an unforgettable experience.
The best views of La Coruna are in the San Pedro Park, the lungs of the city. Incredible views of the Tower of Hercules and the Bay of Orzan-Riazor. The wine list is extensive and well priced, and the wine is well balanced. I'd recommend the crispy duck breast, beef stroganoff, Galician fish and desserts. At noon we made it to the spectacular spherical elevator that goes up the hill, as if we were in in Star Trek. At night it's better to take the car, as the elevator closes early.
