Restaurante San Jaime

If you are looking for a peaceful and elegant place to enjoy a good meal, Restaurante San Jaime is hard to beat. With a big cafeteria, a stunning terrace, the costumers can enjoy their means in a very unique atmosphere. The view of the Cathedral is breath-taking, and the menu delightfully varied, focusing mainly on seafood and meat.


As the region’s capital, Santiago is the hub for Galician culinary experiences. Seafood is one of the main specialities and some of the best offerings can be found on Rúa do Franco as well as Rúa do Vilar. Besides fresh fish, local specialties include charcoal-grilled meat, cured ham and beef and other cold meats like chorizo, salchichón and morcilla. Local cheeses include Cebreiro, Arzúa, Tetilla and San Simón.
