“For food snobs only”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

The photo of the dish on this page sums it all up. Miserly portions of everything at twice the price of most of the other restaurants in town. They can afford to be friendly when they obviously spend more money on table mats than on the food. You will leave here hungry and poor. Only recommended to snobs who think that food should be admired for its appearance rather than eaten.
I've been to Ibiza several times a year for the last 30 years, and this is one of a very few places I've walked out of without finishing a meal. You don't have to be ripped off just because you are in Ibiza.
All the places in this street, known locally as restaurant street are rather overpriced and over rated. You will find much better by just moving slightly off the tourist trail.

Whilst we welcome all comments regarding our guests dining experience, I do feel I have to respond to a couple of your points. Food should appeal to the eyes first...you would always buy a shiny red apple rather than a dull brown spotted one, so therefor we take great pride in the presentation of our dishes. We serve our fresh vegetables in a separate dish to give our guests the choice of what they would like to eat. Our table presentation is another matter of pride, and we certainly do not spend more on our table mats than on the food, as we take time to produce these ourselves. Finally, at 12€ for a two course menu and desserts starting at 5€ , I believe we offer great value for money as the majority of previous reviews would agree. Thank you for taking the time to review us, and I certainly hope you will revisit us and introduce yourself, giving us the chance to change your opinion.

“"YOU WILL RETURN AGAIN AND AGAIN"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Me and my then girlfriend (now wife) first discovered this hidden gem back in 2007 and have been returning ever since.
We visit Ibiza as many as 3 times a year and the Gallery is the first place we book.
In June 2012 we got married in Ibiza and had our pre wedding dinner at the restaurant, nearly 40 people came along and every one of them had nothing but praise for the quality of the food and the excellent service. Miles (the owner) was kind enough to close the restaurant and even served pimms on arrival for free.Nothing is too much trouble for him and his staff are a credit to the restaurant and always make you feel welcome.
The steaks are amazing and the 'Lowry' never dissapoints. The starters are delicious, give the mushroom puff pastry a try. The menu is large enough for good selection and small enough that you know everything is really fresh.
TIP- Pre book a table outside (it can get busy in high season) and you can sit back and watch the world go by.
Theres not many places that you would return to again and again but this place is a must.
We are already looking forward to our next visit.

“You must try this restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Found this restaurant quite by chance one rainy night. In St Eulalia. You have the beach area and all the places to eat around the bay, but Park and walk up from the main square head to the right hand side across the main road and take the 1st right hand street. Your in a different world, the street is awash with restaurants, India, Chinese, Spanish and a wonderful little place called The Gallery the food is superb. Its English, but definatly not Chips and Beans, its a wonderful menu, well cooked and served. Give it a try.

“Excelent food & service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We ate at this restaurant twice during our one week stay in Santa Eulalia. Food top quality, top presentation, yet served in a very relaxed, laid back atmosphere. Friendly efficient wait staff, the owner and chef came out to ask how we had enjoyed our food.
