Good food, good service and lovely music in the backgroup. Cosy little place. Would have walked past if someone did not refer us to the place. Close to the Naval Museum and in walking distance to plenty restaurants and the Cafe del Mar. Perfect location.

La Galera is a small, very charming restaurant. The staff is very friendly and they seem happy to serve you. I have been twice so far and ordered tapas each time. My first visit I ordered stuffed mushrooms that had been fried, and the pinchos...More
