I am compelled to state it from start that our primary preference for dining at O Galito's is inspired by their seafood. We've dined at this establishment repeatedly and have never been disappointed by the quality nor value of the seafood served. Never have we visited without ordering fresh oysters, and never have we been let down. For those who... More

The food is great. The orders were correct and the quality was great. They have a special for every Tuesday- Steaks half price which makes the restaurant quite popular. We were seated on the last available seat (so make sure you book in advance) . After we were seated we looked around and no waiter helped us nor greeted us,... More

We even got my parents in law to give it a try and now they are hooked. The sushi was amazing! They have half price sushi on Mondays!!!! We ordered the prawn platters and mixed... More

After asking for an outdoor seat with a tablecloth, we were seated next to the noisy kitchen entrance in an almost empty restaurant at 16:45 in the afternoon. The waitress got my order wrong ad then insisted that I eat the food she brought me. "Grilled" fish and calamari was drenched in fat and was so overcooked I could hardly... More

They serve a great breakfast at a good price. The Tuesday steak special is our favorite. The seafood is just as good. Great ambiance!

This restaurant has excellent decor and comfortable seating. The menu is huge but they are masters at seafood and steak. Their sushi menu is fantastic and they have outstanding wines. The pricing is reasonable for the quality of food. Delicious all around and highly recommended for almost any occasion. The staff are hit and miss - sometimes abundantly friendly, but... More

The dinner was also good and the food we had the fish and calamari combo was good and reasonable priced.... More

O Galito's has long been a family favourite. The food is consistently of a high standard, portions are generous, pricing on par, and the ambience urban sophisticated. We appreciate the menu range and will sometimes pop in for sushi at the sushi bar (always enjoy watching the preparation) while on other occasions a more formal approach is adopted. The restaurant...
