Had rice with seafood. Generous servings and not expensive. The place is really beautiful, although, if you prefer to eat outdoors, better go early 😉

Very busy restaurant, but if you have to wait for a table it is well worth it. All the seafood we tried was excellent. Many locals ordered the rice dishes which looked fantastic. Very large portions. Do go if you are in the area.

Overlooking the port of xufre, this is a gem of a place. Wonderful food, friendly service and great views from the terrace. As my husband says, you can't go too far wrong with fresh seafood. We would recommend.

We waited a 1/2 hour to get into A Meca because it was packed the day we showed up. I am sure glad we put up with the wait, because the meal was unforgettable. We started off with berberechos (small clams) and calamares en su...More

I recently visited A Meca following a relative's recommendation. When I went there I thought it was amazing, as I live in Madrid and we don't get neither the fish nor the seafood they have in Galicia. However, as we spent our time on the...More
