Well, not much has changed in this small Spanish restaurant that continues to draw a loyal following of local and foreign Spanish customers. The staff remains the same, with one or two getting just a little doddery. Still the food is reliable and tasty, maybe a touch too salty at times but you can always tell them to moderate the...

loud, busy, buzzing - loved the octopus tapas with potatoe but paella was a bit of a disappointment along with tuna empanada which I thought was quite dry.

I feel like im in Spain every time I visit. All the waiters are brilliant and even when its packed they are so on the ball. A bottle of wine at the bar, and you can relax as they know you need a table, which is sorted asap.

I recently visited this place after a Spanish friend recommended it to me. As I stood outside waiting for my friends to arrive, I was surprised by the number of people speaking Spanish constantly going in and out of the restaurant: I really felt as if I was in another country! When we sat inside, that positive feeling was supported... More

A friend recommended this little restaurant in Ladbroke Grove and the recommendation was spot on. The tapas were delicious, the staff were so friendly and the atmosphere was great, buzzing and full of chatter and laughter. We had the tortilla, patatas bravas, mixed salad, pinchos morunos, chorizo al vino and the delicious pimientos de padron. Excellent value for money and... More

After visiting portobello market on a Saturday we settled for a late lunch Spanish style. Galicia restaurant is an authentic Galician restaurant where the proprietors are friendly and the food full of flavour. The decor probably hasn't changed much in the past 20 years but I think it adds to the charm. We ordered a selection of tapas to share:... More

We stumbled upon this lovely, family run restaurant with a friend over bank holiday weekend; what a find! We walked in and had a table cleared and set for us... Glancing at those around us the food looked and smelled great, so we were excited. The place was busy, the bar was 2 deep, and all tables except ours were... More
