You don't expect to find quality original Mexican food close to the Niagara Falls but this was it. Great food, great prices and just a fun place to be. Highly recommended

The staff were helpful. The dining experience was great - the Margarita was just right and the food we ordered was deliciious. Definitely on my list of... More

Again, because of TA we stopped in for a late lunch at La Galera after an afternoon of shopping at the nearby outlet mall. The restaurant is pretty with the tables and booths colourfully decorated. As soon as we sat down our drink orders were taken and a bowl of salsa and nacho chips placed on our table. And although... More

Real good , carnitas were amazing.. Super busy spot. Didn't wait long and totally worth it. Been shopping around here for years and never knew this was there.. Salsa and refried beans are awesome.

We always enjoy our food from La Galera. This particular time we ordered on line for pick up. The order was ready when stated and we were able to enjoy it at home with family.

My adult son and I ate here on a brief visit to the area. We wanted a place that was a bit off the tourist route and was not a chain restaurant. We were not disappointed. What welcomed us at first was the colorful decor. Each booth and table were individually designed, colorful and told a story. The staff were... More
