Found in the heart of the Oleiros municipality is El Refugio, a gastronomy that looks to combine traditional cuisine with contemporary cooking methods at any given opportunity. Thanks to the wealth of produce from the Galician 'rias' (estuaries) and local markets, raw ingredients are quickly transformed into creative masterpieces for the palate. Lampreys, shrimp, crab and barnacles are re-imagined and served with the freshest fruits, vegetables and sauces, creating opulent seasonal dishes to rival that of any restaurant in La Coruña
Once inside, diners will no doubt find the character of El Refugio as charming as the menu. With high ceilings, rustic furniture and local artwork there is an informal atmosphere which welcomes travellers to the community. Oleiros may not be inundated with restaurants, yet El Refugio and its authentic delicacies should not be missed if you happen to be in the area. Step in for seafood heaven.
