A TAFONA by Lucía Freitas, One Michelin Star
“Casual and full of contrasts, as it combines striking stone walls with a beautiful staircase, a skylight and some other stylish details. The young chef, whose dream came true with this restaurant, prepares a modern cuisine with a lot of flavor, fine technique and elegant pairings.” – MICHELIN Guide Inspectors
Lucía Freitas was born in 1982 in Santiago de Compostela (Galicia, Spain). At the age of 19, she began her studies at the Advanced School of Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management in Artxanda (Bilbao). That was the beginning of her journey through a path full of hard work and dedication with a never-ending desire to learn from the best.
A dream come true since 2009, renewed in 2017, and awarded one Michelin Star in 2018.
A location linked to roots, tradition, and culture. A discourse on provenance and DNA.
Based on seasonality and local ingredients.
Entirely linked to Galicia, to its coast and its vegetable gardens.
Chef Lucía Freitas’ flagship restaurant, A Tafona, has earned a Michelin star and many rave reviews. But her journey to success was a challenging one.
