We have been visiting here for a number of years. It has changed hands and is an Italian now. The food is still really good but of course the menu has changed. I had golden bream and it was so delicate and tasty. The staff are really pleasant. Will return again

We stumbled across this lovely restaurant and couldn't have asked for more. Don't be put off by the surroundings it is well worth a visit. Everything tasted extremely fresh, pizzas and pastas were excellent. The calamari starter was great completely different to the battered squid rings we get in the UK, the Iberico ham was also delicious, the service was... More

Found this little restaurant just off the main areas of Lagos. There were a few tables outside but many more inside. The waitresses were very friendly and helpful. I'd been wanting to try Cataplana but all restaurants I'd seen only served this for two people, not good for me as the OH doesn't like fish much. So I asked....and after... More

The O Galeao is a really nice place to be, we ate outside and that was a really nice experience, the staff were lovely attentive and good at what they did. The food was good although I doubt the chief tasted any of it. The microwave seems to be well used and sadly the chosen crockery seemed to absorb most... More

The cuisine is genuine and 100% Italian (the chef is from La Spezia) with tributes to the local dishes as well. Very nice pizza, but go for the patanegra, mozzarella al forno and all the main courses with local and fresh fish. Highly recommended for a nice lunch or a relaxing evening.

We went here due to the positive reviews. The staff is very attentive and alert. You will not find yourself waiting for their attention. They do not have any Sangria but have a wine menu and 2 different beer brands. Super Bock and something else. Standard soda's, however no "light" or "zero" soda's. They do not have any special options... More
