We stumbled upon Quick Galetos walking from the Copabana Palace hotel looking for food for our hungry teens. What a home run Quick Galetos was! We ordered the galeto (chicken) and french fries. The grill was right in front of us and we watched the cook (I don't think I can call him a chef) roast chicken and different cuts of beef over a charcoal grill. We really enjoyed the food and became big fans of galeto and ordered it again at a couple other lunch places. The people around us were having the beef and it also looked very good. It is not expensive and the service is very good. You will have your food within a few minutes of ordering. The restaurant is right off Copabana Beach two blocks from the Copacabana Palace hotel, so very convenient if you are in that area. There is no air conditioning and it is hot with the grill in the center of the restaurant, so dress lightly and be hungry.

Sit on a stool and watch your food being cooked on the BBQ in front of you. Good selection of meat, whole chicken, chips and salads and fresh orange juice. Good quality at cheap prices just round the corner from Porto Bay hotel..

Found the place on trip advisor, really enjoyed it the first time so went back a week later. Simple food, we tried the chicken and steak, both very tasty with good sides. Couldn't fault the food and so reasonable.
