Like all restaurants, there are some people who will not like El Gallego, but the value for money is hard to beat. Many of the main dishes are too generous and are great to share.

We have been going to El Gallego for a number of years now and I must say that it never has let us down. The first thing you need to do is to book well in advance. The selection of seafood is very very good, all fresh and of very good quality. The beef is equally amazing, it's from Galicia... More
