When ordering steak, specify NO BLOOD, if your like even medium. Lots of fish, mussels. Book ahead, as it is very popular with locals and tourists alike.

We have been several times. Never had a bad meal. The steaks are very very nice. I had fillet and you get two large steaks. The last time I have a TBone. This was the largest steak I have ever had. Well worth a visit if your a meat eater.

We have been meaning to try this for years and finally got round to booking a table. All the hype seems to be bourne out : large portions, prices in the mid - teens for steaks were good, place crowded and staff busy but helpful. We took some of the steak back home in doggy bags as there was too... More

Our first visit to El Gallego was a fabulous experience, all the cuts of meat on display were huge so we decided on the fillet. When our meals came, we were served 2 fillets each, we did wonder if we had ordered incorrectly but it would seem this is normal :-) We ordered one rare and one medium rare....the rare... More

Firstly I would say don't pay much attention to any reviews that comment on how slow the service is or how under cooked the meat is. Firstly the reason they may be slow at times is because its so busy there, we have had to book ahead nearly every time we have been there. Secondly the Spanish like to eat... More

We're here for the first of many visits on the recommendation of an ex-pat. Superb food, lovely atmosphere. Had to book up in advance in order to not be finished in just two hours. We were there nearly three altogether and were not rushed. Pick your meat from the cabinet and it's cooked how you like but medium steaks by... More

This is my sixth visit to this restaurant in three years. It's expanded in that time and is very popular. It's loud, it's bright, it's noisy but it's Spanish and we are in Spain. If you want a quiet romantic meal, or are thinking silver service and attentive waiters you will be disappointed. To enjoy this place park the English... More

we visited the "El Gallego" restaurant with friends. My husband took the "entrecote" and to my opionion, this is a good choice. However, the mixed grill is nothing but a pile of low quality meat, with a lot of fat and bones, I did not like it at all. We were seated outside as we had a small dog with... More

This was the biggest and best steak I have ever had. The children really enjoyed theirs too. We just had steak and chips and shared a desert. The house wine was good too.
