I booked three of us in for lunch on a Saturday and we were the first to arrive at 1pm, with the place filling up rapidly after.

We went for the menú del día which is priced at €13,50 on a Saturday (and a little less on a weekday and more on a Sunday). I had previously asked by email when booking about eating gluten free and was reassured this wasn't a problem.

The restaurant itself is underground, atmospheric and with a Galician flavour.

The choice on the menú was good. Two of us opted for vegetable cream soup to start which was served with a foie gras/ paté on the side and I'm told was good. I had a salad which was simple and a little basic. The mains were delicious - two of us had the entrecot (€2 extra) which was cooked as ordered and had a fantastic char grilled taste and was true to the Galician style. The sliced potatoes and beans were lovely too. The other main ordered was a sole-type fish which was fine and light and tasty. For dessert we had one tiramasu, one yoghurt mousse and one panna cotta. We were well watered, with a bottle of wine and lots of fizzy water.

Service was efficient, personable and friendly. I suspect it may help to be able to speak Spanish if you have menu or dietary questions but some of the staff did seem to speak ok English so I wouldn't worry too much.

Overall we really enjoyed this place. Good Spanish food, good service and great value. I will certainly come back.

In fairness we did arrive quite late (10.00pm) but having read the great reviews was looking forward to the food. Quality of the steak and Salad with blue cheese was fantastic - it was the service that let the place down 'Mrs Sidreria Aurrera' was so rude and just grunted at us! Not sure if its Brexit that causes this reaction to English people but your poster from Trip Advisor proudly showing 4.5/5 is false economy based on what I experienced.

Classic Spanish resturaunt, well appointed dining in the old town area. Fantastic welcome from the waiter who is so enthusiastic about the food you just can't resist. 3 of us went and decided on the menu del dia, guiso (lentils) was very tasty and lots of it, paella for the others was crammed with tasty morsels as well. We each had the entrecote (poco hecho) they all arrived at the same time, cooked perfectly and hot. Very nice steaks for everyone, well seasoned and real tasty. Postre offered Pana Cota so that's me sorted, delicious!
We had two bottles of wine (not driving) and we got change from €50.
They don't speak much english but please don't be put off you will love it.
