O Gato Negro (The Black Cat)

Always packed!

Attention lovers of local pubs: you have come to the right place. O Gato Negro could be called the gastronomic heart of Santiago, a mythical place with a long metal bar that you must not miss; to leave the Galician capital without trying the bar food here is nothing short of a sin. The pub is easy to find thanks to the green window, striking door and the black cat resting on it for years. Don't expect minimalist décor or high-faluting creations, what really matters here is the food: not surprisingly, there are many who say that in this place they have tasted the best octopus in the world, and you'll have the chance to confirm that for yourself. They also offer other traditional recipes such as cockles, Galician turnovers, mussels and Padron peppers. The average price is around 20€, a bargain if you consider the sublime taste of their dishes.
