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

Probably the worst steak ever. It was so tough that we could not even cut it with the steak knife. Took it back home for our neighbours dog, even she could not eat it - and she is a German Shepard . This is a restaurant to avoid. As it had been recommended, we thought just a bad day -... More

Very good food and lots of atmosphere. Not particularly cheap but "you get what you pay for". The restaurant was made much larger a while back and whilst I liked the buzz of the old restaurant, the refurbishment has Ibsen a distinct improvement. I like the fact that there are so many local Spanish eating there.

The restaurant is modern and large, seating is comfortable and as soon as you walk in, you can't miss the counter showing all the meat on offer. Steaks are enormous and very reasonable priced. we had the mistake before by having starters and ended up taking more than half the meat back home as we couldn't manage it all.. now... More

The food is good....when it arrives, but service is lacking. Meals are not delivered all together and if you ask for anything extra, you may get it and may not. It takes an eternity to get the waiters attention and then they are not attentive even then. Good food but painful service.
