Great restaurant where you know you are going to get a fair deal for your money. Whilst I tucked into the sushi, my partner went with the vegetarian platter, both excellent.

The main reason for this review is to rave about the Jalapeño Fillet at O Galito's. Truly, this must be one of the tastiest and most interesting Filets I have tasted. The tender steak was stuffed with Jalapeño chillies in the center and covered with a white sauce on the top. The combination of these three made each mouthful a... More

Have taken friends there for dinner. Must say the service and food was outstanding. I had a steak and must say it was good. Well done to management for running a good place. Will go back soon.

The service from our waiter was actually pretty good but then they were let down by a lady I assumed to be one of their managers. I asked if I could please have... More

Also had birthday parties with all the family (24 people) service always excellent. They really make you feel special no matter what... More
