Late night visit: great service

We popped in after 21:00 on a Friday night. Service was excellent. Waitresses paid attention, food was served shortly after ordered, well presented and delicious! I liked the tableware!

I have been here quite a few times and all of them left me bitter and bitterly disappointed. This restaurant serves Oxtail for a HUGELY overpriced price for what you get. Tough and very little meat, sauce is great. The amount of mash you get with it is laughable. This restaurant tricks you with nice looks and area. However, be... More

A great restaurant and good value for money in my books. The food is top class and the staff well trained. A friendly and inviting reception every time you arrive at the restaurant sets the tone. One of my favourites..!

I had lunch before at this restaurant, and I was always pleased and satisfied with the wonderful food and service. Until two weeks ago. My friends and I went there for a celebratory dinner, we booked in advance and 5 minutes after we were seated the hostess asked us if she could move us to a different table, they made... More

Excellent food at a reasonable price. Smart venue but not one where you will take small children to.Professional and friendly service.

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.
