“Take a closer look before you try...”
Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

We visited them for breakfast. From a distance it looked like a great place to visit, but soon experienced the contrary. The kitchen area not up to standard - evident from poor hygiene and the chef seemed to have very limited training. This was evident from the poor quality food he dished up. The waiters of poor quality and did not instill any confidence. Pricing was also misleading. Overall the place created the impression of a desperate establishment.

“Good service, food and ambiance!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

I can really recommend O Galitos in Woodlands. Upmarket but casual feel with laid back but unobtrusive sophisticated ambiance. I've always been impressed with every dish ordered. The restaurant caters for meat and seafood lovers and have specials chalked on a board that change monthly. I can recommend the sushi, whole fish, prawn espatada and baby chicken. Their creamed spinach is to die for. I love going to O Galitos to enjoy a laid back but sophisticated dinner.

“not worth a visit”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

really dissapointed by this establishment on more than one occasion, the decor is dated, water marks on ceiling and you can see owners letting this place go as no maintenance has been done in ages. the waiters are not friendly, food is worst out of all eateries at Woodlands boulevard... rather go to Heat for a classier atmosphere and far better food!

“Good food and swift service”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We go to O Galitos often. We go reguarly since it is close to home. The food is great and the service very good. We never wait long for our food. Their speciality is seafood, but the ribs and chicken is also excellent. I strongly recommend this restaurant. Good vibe and spacious seating.

“Great food, Great staff!”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

I have eaten at this restaurant a few times by now in the past year, and so far it has far exceeded expectations. Good is excellent, staff is very friendly. Restaurant is mainly for sea-food but their meat is also very good. Would definitely recommend.
