Brilliant Spanish food, very very good prized, very fresh and pack of flavour, the onlu lack more proffesional staff. Is a hidden little gem with live music in weekends.

Steak lover's heaven

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... read more

This is an excellent restaraunt. We ate here three nights on the trot and enjoyed some of the best staeks and fish in the area. The steaks were cooked perfectly and were huge! You will do best to book as its get busy on most nights and i can understand why. We will be back

We had churassco and a huge rib eye (Cheuleton) the rib eye takes extra time to prepare since it is over 2 lbs! Been here many times and is always good good and service. We had dinner in back patio by pool, with nice live music. I can recommend without doubt.

This time, I managed to stay away from the huge meats on offer, difficult to do, but the fish and seafood are very tempting too. I had turbot, which at 14 euro is a steal. Filleted and delicious. Great service, inexpensive good wine. A must every time we visit.

Don't book, enjoy the atmosphere and have a drink at the bar. Quite simply the best place for a steak cooked correctly none of this sauce covered rubbish you get elsewhere. I visit regularly and enjoy every meal.

The steaks are amazing value here but unless you like it very bloody ask for your steak to be butterfly as the steaks are very thick. Suggest you go here if you enjoy a fab steak. The restaurant gets very busy and therefore the service can be a bit slow. Could do with dimmer lights and maybe candles on the... More

We visited El Gallego for our third time. If you are in the area it's a must visit. The steaks are a real talking point, large but tender as butter. The seafood is also quality and doesn't come at too high a price, very reasonably priced and good service. Give it a go :)
