“Really good - well worth eating there”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We tried Galego on a Wednesday night in August, and, to be honest, only went there because nearby Fontana (also, we subsequently found, good) was full. What a lucky accident! I can't understand why this restaurant is so far down the list...in fact, this injustice prompted me to create a TripAdvisor account and add my recommmendation to try to help rectify the situation.

We shared grilled octopus to start - beautifully cooked and presented, and enough to share as a light starter. I then had hake from the daily specials board. It was moist, tasty, and perfectly fresh. My girlfriend went for a tuna steak which was exceptional. The bottle of white we shared was recommended to us by our waiter and turned out to be a good choice.

The staff were friendly and efficient, and came across as passionate about the Galician cuisine they were offering. (If you're not familiar with Spanish regions, Galicia is in the North West - not near Ibiza at all, so it was nice to try food from a different region.)

The only drawback is that perhaps Galego is a little more expensive that the surrounding Santa Eulalia fayre, but for this quality, it's worth paying a few euros more.
