My farther in law told us about the Galan possibly 7 years ago, about the incredible pigs cheek dish on the menu. 2 years ago we tried this dish and have NEVER tasted anything better! We have waited till this summer to go back and the meal was as incredible as the last, we also visited with the family and everyone had a different dish which were all perfect and deliciouse! The decor is, as another person said old world, yet trendy at the same time, the service is impecable and the price incredible, my husband and I had 3 beers, a bottle of good wine, 3 courses, and Irish coffee for 54 Euros! I can not rate high enough and can not wait to return!

Old timey atmosphere, amazing historic photographs of L'Escala, obvious pride in the town, carved wood bar, a warm welcome. Cozy and family owned; different generations do the service and the cooking. Local clientele. One of the rare affordable places that does both a prix fixe menu and an assortment of smaller dishes that are not tapas: we had a macaroni and cheese, plus a big gorgeous salad. No fifth star because it's not a foodie-joint. But good food and exquisite atmosphere all the same.

Great little place. Good atmosphere and amazing food. Lovely local food with authenticity and history. So glad it hasn't been ruined by tourism. Would go again in a heart beat!
