The Yayo Daporta restaurant opened in 2005 in a historic building in “Rua Hospital” in Cambados and, since then, it maintains its commitment to the updated Galician cuisine. The chef, Yayo Daporta, develops the knowledge and experienced acquired at the Hotel Management School of Galicia and in restaurants such as Casa Solla (Pontevedra), Alejandro (Almería) or Amparo (Madrid). The menu always starts with the best products in the market, paying special attention to seafood and seasonal fish, to which they apply the most appropriate cooking techniques. It has a wide and careful selection of Galician vines from Galician wine denominations of origin as well as other Spanish and international wines, selected by the sommelier Esther Daporta. The restaurant has been awarded with a Michelin star since 2008 and with two ‘Soles’ Repsol since 2015, as well as the Q Mark for Tourist Quality. The chef Yayo Daporta is part of the ‘Nove’ Group, which brings together chefs who promote the modernization and renovation of Galician cuisine.
Cambados is, rightly, the capital of albariño. A grape that gives its name to the best white wine in the world. So the customer of this restaurant will have two possibilities in the environment. On the one hand, the village itself, and on the other hand, the surroundings. The village, in turn, shows two main areas of interest: the streets that are organized around the majestic Fefiñáns Square, with its 'pazo' (country house) setting boundaries, and the seaside neighbourhood of Santo Tomé, with its typical houses. We should highlight the graceful remains of the tower of San Sadurniño and of the Gothic church of Santa Mariña Dozo. And if what you want is to know the surroundings, you need to be prepared to constantly see here and there signs that invite visiting some wine cellars through a flat landscape in which the river Umia dominates surrounded by little height mountains that hide, among other monuments, the monastery of Armenteira and its active female religious community.
