Here are a few examples of the kind of tapas that you will see in Galicia. Many are seafood based, some are served free as an accompaniment to drinks, whilst most are ordered as separate dishes that you mix and match – usually amongst friends.
Prices for tapas dishes vary, as do the portion sizes, but you will see these treats being served in most bars and eaten at all times of the day. The selection of taps in Galicia is not as broad as that of Barcelona or Madrid, but the quality is usually very high and any visitor to this region not sampling a plate or two of tapas is missing out on the Galician experience.
