Meat lovers heaven and nothing is too much trouble for them. If you like your T bones then never go anywhere else. People often come up to your table to ask if they can photograph it, it's that big and cheap at 17€! If you like it medium, ask for well done but don't be afraid to send it back.

Visited El Gallego with the family in 2014 and returned for 'date night' with my partner on the back of our last experience. Clean restaurant, pleasant staff and the food is fresh and tasty. The bread appetiser with garlic mayo/tomato dip is a nice touch and we are definitely not creatures of habit but had battered squid followed by fillet... More

If you like steak or seafood meals then this must be your first choice. You should book as this resturant is extremely popular. Service is excellent and prices very good for the menu offered. Meals are of very generous proportions and cooked to your individual requirement.

If you don't book virtually no chance to get a table in this continuingly good restaurant. My petite friend ordered a Chuleton by mistake and it was nearly as big as her. She said that it was soooo good that she had to finish it. Did much better than we expected but took the rest home for a breakfast sandwich.... More

Very typically Spanish and all meat... More

It's always a good sign when there are locals queuing up for takeaway! The steaks here are fantastic! The range and selection of meats and cheeses in their display cabinets are tremendous. We shared a mixed grill which I must admit I was disappointed with and would not have again, but this is just personal preference as I didn't realise... More
