Everything was excellent from the moment we arrived. Great service, superb food and wine - I could have had a main course portion of the Welsh rarebit starter it was so delicious, although the sea bass was gorgeous. We were all too full for dessert, but at the end of our meal a slice of delicious cake arrived at our... More

I visited the restaurant on Saturday evening with friends and the welcome on arrival could not have been warmer. The food was wonderful (in particular the shared Turkish Mezze to start). The service throughout was outstanding. I will definitely return next time I'm in the area.

We had a meal at the Galley on Wednesday evening. I had the squid to start which is a must for all seafood overs and the Lobster (amazingly cooked and huge!) for main. The rest of the party had the rare breed pork and the sea bass. Everyone lived their meals and this is head and shoulders above other restaurants... More

The food choices were lovely and the food was fabulous especially the rare breed pork. The service was attentive as always but not intrusive. Well done Ugur and team.

I cant recommend this restuarant highly enough for exquisite food for very reasonable prices. I booked this for my mums birthday and she could not have been more impressed by the meal and the hosts whose personalities really shone and added the finishing touches to a truly lovely afternoon. To top it all off after the meal we were shown... More

We had been in for coffee before but recently went for lunch and it was excellent. Amazing starters - although not cheap you certainly get your money's worth! Nothing was too much trouble. Service friendly and helpful. Lots of choice and everything freshly cooked. Will definitely be returning.

Visited in march 2015 for the second time. Found it to be better value than previously. A lot of the customers were clearly regulars who loved the place. The head waiter (?) Claude had people in the palm of his hand, and the way that he used his ethnicity and sophistication to charm the mostly over 50, middle class white... More
