Very low key and unassuming restaurant. Very good food at very reasonable prices. Staff is genuine and friendly serving many FWI classics. A very good option for a value based lunch or dinner.

Great meal. A lot different than are normal type of food, but very good. The Mojito’s were very good and muddled nicely.

The former pier-piri is now the very low key but, very good Galawa. A menu that is pretty basic but with very good food. Perfect option for a low key and reasonably priced restaurant.

Had a lovely dinner the other night while in St Barths. We had Mahi Mahi two ways and the Butchers plate. Delicious and the staff and owner were lovely to talk about the change on the island.

Galawa used to be one of my favorite restaurants on the island, although I know my fellow diners feel it has been consistently average. During my last visit, the service was poor and less accommodating than usual, despite us being only 1 of 3 tables...More
