La Penela


International Galician Tapas Seafood

Situated in the middle of the beautiful María Pita Plaza is La Penela, a true benchmark in cooking conventional Galician cuisine. Dishes are prepared with natural simplicity, using local ingredients and recipes to create a warming homemade aesthetic; Salmagundi monkfish and prawns, tortilla de Betanzos, roast beef that falls off the knife and tasty stuffed mussels are just some of the delectable choices available to diners.

After admiring the majestic views and emblematic architecture (designed by the famous Julian Galan) that gives the area its historical character, inside customers will find the restaurant is conveniently split into two areas; a tavern area for smaller meals and casual drinks, and a more expansive dining area for those interested in set menus. Whichever setting, eating at La Penela is a must for anyone who loves typical Galician food and service.

Price range: €29-40.

Food type: Seafood, Tapas, International, Galician.


Plaza de María Pita, 9, A-Coruna, 15001
