The best steak on the island, a mandatory place to visit, and for sure the best cost/value experience.

Amazing steak! One of the best steaks I’ve ever had! The Service and food was delicious! It’s a very busy spot, so I recommend making a reservation!

The beef was really good, but not perfectly cooked the way we ordered it. The sous though was amazing. Also highly recommand the beans pudding.

The beef was good, i asked mine medium (it was more on the well side) and my partner asked medium raw and was perfect. A must try is the bean pudding - an excelent dessert.

We went to Galego on the recommendation of Rafael from Amazing Island Car Rental (who we very highly recommend, BTW). This was our only non-fish meal in 5 days. Galego is casual place, where most of the patrons are local families, often multi-generational in one...table. It is also not a 3 hour long business dinner place either - each seating is limited to about two hours (7pm, 9pm) But the steaks are incredible! Tender, juicy, flavorful. House specialty are the top 4 menu items and I would definitely recommend those. We also had an outstanding berry cheese cake - light and fluffy (more akin to Italian ricotta cheese cake than the traditional American cheesecake).More

Rang the resteraunt owner - could fit me in if we waited until 9pm. All fair enough. Location is not memorable down by a quiet area of the seafront. Turned up, table was waiting and resteraunt busy with local people. The Restaraunt overlooks the sea...though is not the most flattering seaside location - not romantic at all - but for families just perfect. They specialise as a beef steak house. Vegetarian option therefore limited , not ghe resteraunts fault but mine I should add, but my daughter had a cheese omelette instead and was fine. My wife and I ordered a steak and my son a pork steak. Portions good, food plenty. I should add the steak was well prepared - cooked rare as we like it - many resteraunts will say rare and give you medium. Washed down with a bottle of very acceptable Portugese deep red. In summary this resteraunt did well. Good honest decent food at a reasonable price ( total bill with drinks, bittle if wine (17 Euro) bottle of water (mains only) Waiter was attentive and gave us what we needed In short if you want good honest food, mainly steak, and not fussy about your surroundings this resteraunt performed, Recommended!More

Got a table reservation here a day in advance (tends to get packed, so the chances of getting a table if you've got no reservation are fairly low). The place is quite simple, however, they're great with beef. The food was just amazing, and the...quality of the dishes is absolutely high (I guess, that comes with the restaurant using the local ingredients only). The waiting time was quite alright, and the selection of wines was good enough to have a decent beef-wine pairing. The bill was even lower than expected. All in all - if you like beef, make sure to visit this place.More

We (family of 4) arrived around 13:30 without reservations. Luckily they would have a table within 15 min. Even if the waiting time would have been 1.5 hrs I would have accepted. The food was great but actually that needs to be rephrased to "the...food other than the Bife de Lombo was great". The Bife de Lombo was fabulous. It's the first time in my life I can honestly say that I have never been served a better steak than in this tiny little retaurant. Deliciously prepared and so soft that you would not need a knife..... If I would live on the island I would make it a structured approach to have a steak in this restaurant once a week. What a delight and that with such attentive waiters!!More

Nicely cooked beef . The garlic sauce was great. Kids enjoyed the dessert. It’s a popular local family restaurant so be prepared to wait even if you make reservation. Also, people smoke on the outdoor patio. Very hospitable staff.

We went here on the recommendation of the owner of the apartment. It's a really nice place, popular with the locals. It's a bit far from the center, but we lived nearby, so we didn't get to the first day, so we came to the...second. I wouldn't go here on purpose. Advantages: good steak, reasonable prices. Disadvantages: it is cramped, you can not get there because of the small number of places.More

Not the best beef in the island as some people recommended. It was a normal beef and chips, nothing special but a bit expensive.
