A simple family restaurant where you will be made to feel at home by the brothers and sisters team of Bruno, Marian, Jose and Begonia. Mother can be found ruling the kitchen. Bruno and Mariam are attending English courses and are improving rapidly. There is a English version of the menu with explanations of the dishes. Set lunches for 12€ can be had from Monday to Friday. Cocedo is a traditional Galician dish made up of every part of the pig including the squeak and no one makes it better than Alarico – available Thursday and Sunday lunch.
Gustavo, usually found hiding underneath one of his many hats, is the man behind this cosy bar and restaurant. He also has one of the largest and most eclectic music collections in Allariz so, depending on his mood, you may be entertained with anything from the jazz of Django Rheinhart, sixties pop or if a bad day then heavy metal. The food is delicious, especially the pork knuckle, and there is a surprisingly large garden out the back.



Situated in the Plaza Mayor ( the Concello square) in the heart of the historic centre of Allariz this small, traditional restaurant bar is always popular. The dining room area can be very noisy so better to eat in the bar itself. The wonderful Gina runs the kitchen and serves up a range of good home cooked style food. The salted cod omlette is a particular favourite. The wine list, which includes Portuguese wine as well as local Galician wines, is very well priced and in particular the house red and white.

The latest restaurant bar to appear in the Plaza Mayor (fast becoming the social centre of Allariz) is Fandiño Tapas. A more casual and cheaper dining experience than Tino's other restaurant further up the hill. Good food and good prices is making this a very popular place. Try the chiparones fritos (battered and fried baby calimari) with one of the many wines available by the glass. This is the site of the first restaurant in Allariz and downstairs at the back the original dining room is pretty much as it was some fifty years ago.

Roi Xordo Café/bar

Roi Xordo is more than a bar, it is a popular meeting place for the people of Allariz. It is the only place in the historic centre that has live entertainment – usually on Fridays and Saturdays starting around 11pm. There are newspapers and magazines if you feel like improving your local language skills and WIFI is available. The lovely and diminutive Carmen is the owner and she and her staff have some of the best coffee in the village. They also serve tapas, salads and specialities of the house – the tortilla is the best in Allariz.
