We had been staying at Cabo Azul and while the resort is amazing, we had been less than impressed overall with the food and the variety on the menu. So, in an effort to do something different, we gave La Galeria a try. The restaurant in and of itself is unique with very hip ecclectic decor. The food is somewhat of a Mexican fusion. There is an awesome combination/use of spices and flavors that will leave your taste buds wanting more. We had a sampling of items including to the Tacos Anita (tempura shrimp with mango pico de gallo and thin unique soft taco)....the flavor was amazing. We also had the palomitas de camaron and the camaron a ago rostizado. Since I don't eat red meat or pork, these dishes were a welcomed delite for me. Being so close to the ocean, you would think sea food would be plentiful....but not the case. The service was nothing short of exceptional. We ordered water forgetting that we actually happened to have our own bottled water with us. That was not a problem as the waiter gladly took our bottles, opened them for us and kept our glasses full as if we had ordered the water directly from the restaurant. The price was reasonable (or at least what you'd expect for the area).....two appetizers, a main dish, and two cocktails later - we were out the door with a bill for $65 (while it may sound a bit pricey, that same order would have been well over $110 at our resort when you throw in the outrageous resort taxes).
So, if you are staying at one of the resorts in the area and are tired of the same menu with expensive taxes at your resort, treat yourself and your taste buds to La Galeria. You won't regret it!
