This was our second visit to La Galana, the first being just a few short months ago in mid-June. The first meal we had was lunch and which is the subject of my first review of this excellent and highly professional operation. Being early in the night, 8 pm, our party of four was the first to arrive and for... More

Unfortunately the reason we had come to this restaurant was because we had been told their "callos" (tripe dish) was awsome. But when we got there they told us they only prepared them in the cold weather season. The place was very crowded and the octupus I ordered was not very good. As a matter of fact, this is the...

The word Galana is translated in my Spanish Dictionary as “a flat-podded lathyrus” (OK, sweet pea to you or me!) or “a woman very showily dressed”. I’d like to think that it was the former!

 Four of us dined here in this rather popular cider-bar-cum-restaurant on Plaza Mayor in the centre of Gijón recently. 

The menus are conveniently provided in... More

We had bar snacks and cider tonight and the tapas was overpriced for the quality but OK. However, the cider served here is really sour and not at all pleasant. The waiters' talents to pour a culin of sidra fall somewhat short of the mark with 50% splashing into the trough and a sticky glass. After the second attempt, I... More

We have had our best meal in Northern Spain here. The good was great (veal for my partner, sea bass for me) and the service friendly and helpful. They had menus in English and also the table next to us were French and they had menus for them too. Really nice evening.

We had a light lunch (Tapas) and dinner in this restaurant and both were excellent. As seems to be the case in a lot of restaurants in northern Spain, the size of the portions is on the large side so do consider whether you need a starter each. They are large! The quality of the food we had was very... More

We stayed in Gijon the night before a ferry to England and were recommended this restaurant by the hotel, and were not disappointed, the food was excellent and the service was friendly and prompt, the pouring of the local Asturias cider was interesting and we ending up buying a bottle. A must visit place if in Gijon.

After a sunny day and a coctail in a bar on the northern coastal city of Spain,Gijon, La Galana located in Plaza Mayor is the right choice for the dinner. La Galana, being famous with its traditional pouring technique of Asturian Cider, offers the gastronomic treasures of Northern Spain. Grilled Octopus with mash potato and olive oil is so delicious.... More

While staying a the Parador and walking through the old town in Gijon searching for restaurant only a few locations appeared to be open and these had few customers. In the Plaza Mayor, we came across La Galana, the bar area and restaurant were virtually full. We made our way to the restaurant (at the back of the sidreria) and... More

First of all great service! I ordered a special of the season: dear with red fruits sauce and almond mashed potatoes. For desert a type of brownie (but with melt chocolate inside, almost a Pettit gateau) with mint gelato. All combined with sidra. If in Gijin or even in Asturias, it is a must visit.
