Description: We are a family operation specialized in Portuguese home made cuisine, we do have Mediterranean dishes and some American also. All our desserts are home made. We do have facilities for meetings an group functions of up to 80 people. We do have an outdoor patio and bar with a Mediterranean theme and feeling. Our food is cooked to order. The Portuguese part of the menu is based on national and regional dishes and are as authentic as possible taking into account the availability of some of the products in our area.

“A lovely restaurant with a Portuguese flavour without being just Ethnic”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

This restaurant has made the most of its location in a former church, maintaining the basic architecture with modern warm decor in tones of brown.
We begain our meal with the Pateis a Bacalau (cod rissoles) with a spicy Aoili sauce. It was sooo good! Then we had the grilled whole sardines (if you don't like bones this isn't for you - but we loved it.) We shared the crepes stuffed with ice cream with caramel dessert. It was divine.
The staff were friendly. Fado as background music is available if you ask. And the wine was a nice touch.
The Gallery would be a good reason to visit Leamington

“Always a great place to take friends to and empress them..”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

have been here severral times and never disappointed.. sometimes the service can be a little slow. but you accept it... always very friendly. I have visited 3 or 4 times during the last 4 months and always sat outside.Outside it feels just so great, you feel like you are in Portugal..!! (have never been there)..have not seen the inside, hope to be able to see that in the later month of the year.. This time Anna was serving us, it was a slow Sunday.. and her son was cooking. hedid a great job. all dishes were excellent.. and our friends enjoyed it as well..

well done Anna..

“Great Dining Experience”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

The food was outstanding, great options to choose from on the menu. We ate outside and had a great time watching the fish try to jump out of the waterfall pool it was in. Would go again in a minute.

“Wait Forever”
Reviewed June 21, 2011

We went to the Gallery with a large group (45!), but we gave them several weeks advance notice. They were totally unprepared - forced us to wait over two hours to be served mediocre food (masso do marre). It took an hour and a half just to get some bread (which they quickly ran out of). Manager was totally unapologetic. We love SW Onatrio and Leamington, but I will NEVER go back to the Gallery.

“A little bit of Portugal without the class”
Reviewed October 8, 2010

The whole reason to come here are the authentic Portuguese seafood dishes. Staff needs to brush up or perhaps learn fine dining etiquette. Most times they offer no knowledge of the menu, preparation, wines to go with. Bottle came to the table already opened. Asking for bread brought the response, "That'll be 50 cents extra." A real petty issue to bring up especially when taking out friends or clients.
