If you want to taste tapas in Palamos it is the best place. But it is a bar, not a restaurant! You will have the best experience in tapas, you should go if you visit Palamos, or the other retaurants next door, they are restaurants from the same company. Prawn are excellent! Taste the wines! It is little, probably you... More

We have tried many tapas bars during our stay at Costa Brava, and we liked El Galeo the most. It delivered what I always imagined a real tapas experience should be: simple but tasty snacks that are enjoyed with a drink in a good atmosphere. The place can get very crowded and often there is a line, but I guess... More

I came here with some European friends who wanted to try Spanish tapas. It was the best. There were a lot of traditional and more fancy version of tapas. The location was perfect. I recommended 100%

I visit El Galeo as much as I can, being English living in Palamós has opened my eyes to a wide range of new foods and there's no better place to experience all of this than in El Galeo. The tapas is outstanding although I don't know what half of it is as my Spanish is rusty it's worth trying... More

The servers were not attentive and seemed to care less that they had customers. From requiring us to clear our own tables and bring in plates and bottles (so they could give us bill) to not seeming to care, I wasn't impressed. The saving grace was the food. The Tapas were delicious and presented nicely. The sangria was not very... More

Brilliant tapas and even better welcome and service from all staff. Gets very busy, especially at weekends, and there's a reason for it! We go every time we're in town and are welcomed like long lost friends. Food and drink are fantastic, can't wait to return.
