It was a spur of the moment decision to go to Woodlands for supper and it turned out to be a poor decision. The food was just not good. The starter of mussels were lost in a "garlic sauce" that had a skin floating on top. The mussels were so small and the amount of this rather ordinary garlic sauce just killed the dish. The kabeljou fish fillets were so thin that it was probably impossible to cook them without overcooking them. The chef made sure by burning the skin drying out the flesh. At R140 the quality and quantity of fish was just not worth it. Maybe chef thought that piling heaps of vegetables on the plate made the dish good value for money.
I'm afraid that this will be our last visit to this restaurant. We had been twice before with the first visit being quite good, the second visit not so good and now this very disappointing finale.

Seafood at this restaurant is excellent. Sushi is also good. They serve breakfast. Very nice welcome; somebody is there to welcome you.

It has been a while since we visited O'Galitos. Many years ago it was our favourite spoil in Hatfield and we always went back for the elegant oysters and very affordable seafood platter. Unfortunately inflation caught up with all of us and the seafood platter is now more than 15 years later double the price. Our waiter, "big man Brian" was literally a head above the rest - he knew his wine list, the menu and his service was just out of this world. Well done management - the service and training of your waiters are always in your hands. We had wild oysters from Knysna and some Sushi. The oysters were real good. The main course did not disappoint. Queen prawns and of course, the seafood platter. The only constructive feedback is that we could smell the smoke from the smokers area in the non smoking section. We will be back!
