My sister and I shared dinner at Casa Galicia on a Saturday evening. We've had a craving for Spanish paella for sometime now and decided to satisfy that urge during our weekend in Montreal. We did quite a bit of research prior and found that while there were quite a few tapas bars in the city, the selection was limited when it came to restaurants serving full Spanish meals. Casa Galicia received positive reviews and now we can know why.
The restaurant is located in Rue St. Denis which is offers a refreshing alternative to the jock / frat bar scene of Cresent Street. So after you finish dinner at Casa Galicia, there are many other places nearby where you can continue the evening for drinks, to take in live music, etc.
Once you get inside, the restaurant is not very big though they were able to fit quite a few tables in there. It's decor is kitschy Spanish, a little bit dated but has a nice cozy feel to it.
The food itself was good. We were very satisfied with the portion sizes and left with very full bellies. The food was delicious. We grew up eating Spanish food and have even traveled to Spain - the food here definitely did not disappoint. We ordered a 1-person portion of the seafood paella and coupled it with an order of their tapas for 2 which came out to be just the right amount of food. For dessert we had their flan and Galicia cake which were both delicious.
Service was okay - not the most impeccable service out there - but not bad either. No one was rude and they were quite accommodating of a same day reservation time change.
It was a surprise treat for us to arrive there and find out that they have Flamenco dancers and Spanish singers on Saturday nights. The performers were excellent and helped to make out evening at Casa Galicia more enjoyable and memorable.
