Good quality food and service

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.

I would assume that all O'Galito's restaurants provide good food and service. I have been to the Woodlands branch and I must say that I have really enjoyed my visits to this restaurant. Lovely steak and chicken dishes, not forgetting the desserts. It's a restaurant that is definitely worth a visit.

I had an early dinner on Monday 16 March at O Galios Woodlands Boulevard. Always a great restaurant with great food. I ordered a medium steak for R125. My steak was done very well and was paper thin. I sent it back. I got a new steak and it was cooked medium as I asked but it was so thin... More

One of my favourites. The decor is sophisticated contemporary that immediately puts one in a expectant mood. Good quality finishes in a tasteful ensemble provides a relaxing setting for the evening. The menu is extensive and have food beautifully presented. Try the sushi bar upstairs where you can watch the food being prepared. Enjoyable wine list rounds off a delightful... More

With beautiful white linnen and lit candles I was anticipating a lush experience, only to be a bit disappointed by uninterested waiter and dirty plates. The food was average, I was expecting more for the price charged. Nice restaurant, no fireworks. If you like your standard chicken mayo sandwich everyday, you'll love this place.

We've been to this restaurant a couple of times. Always had seafood from the menu so decided to try steak for the first time. Big disappointment. The steak was not well prepared and not done to our requirements at all. Can't complain about the rest. Service and atmosphere was great! And as usual the dessert was 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.

It is very disappointing when a restaurant's food is good but they are let down by poor service. This was the case when I visited O Galito's. 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
