Galley has a great menu on paper and love the bold flavours and combination they are experimenting. However the portions are way too small and the prices way too high for what it is. The scallopS plate advertised on the menu was actually one small...More

I must have walked past Galley a hundred times and not really thought anything more than ....”I’ll try it one day...”. Well, I finally did last Saturday and happy to have done so. Mrs R and I had a really nice lunch and I was...More

In the early days I was a super regular customer to Galley. It remains one of my favourite places on Upper Street, but the menu seems to have got less adventurous. I like the picture windows opening out onto the high street and the alfresco...More

We visited this restaurant for a meal last night and would highly recommend it!! The food was top quality, it was cooked and presented beautifully. We had mussels, prawns and tuna tartare - which we had to order a second portion of as it was...More

I was lured into Galley by the neighborhood bonhomie of the place: about 7 tables outdoors, a few on a street-facing bar area, and I could see that there were others inside. It looked fun, and after reviewing the menu, we gave it a try....More

OK-ish. Pretty poor selection of fish for a seafood restaurant and no "catch of the day". The food was mediocre, in general. All these places are just too expensive for what they are.
