Great atmosphere, very friendly service, nice food. I always enjoy a night out at Galu. One of the best places around for a festive gathering.

Was bc a lovely evening overall, lovely food , good prompt service. The only negative was the high service charge - it was optional but we didn’t realise until the card was in the machine, I am always happy to leave a tip if food and service is good, but I prefer to decide how much to leave.

Good starter and dessert, not so impressed with main. Might have selected wrong main. Will recommend this restaurant and will be visiting it again.

This visit on Friday night was for me to celebrate my 81st Birthday I was a little disappointed that this was not recognised during the evening but in spite of this I had a very good evening. The staff and Service was first class and the food was out of this world. Thank you very much and I am looking
forward to another visit in the near future.

Lovely restaurant serving good food and with efficient friendly service.My first time there on a Wednesday and was surprised how busy it was for a midweek.
Food prices were good and not overpriced.Would recommend as a nice, relaxing place to eat and drink. Music was playing in background but was not intrusive.
Only query was that lights kept dimming and then going bright again! Maybe a lighting feature or a possible electrical problem! All in all a good visit and I would return.

Food was amazing as usual, service was ok but one waiter was chewing gum the whole time which did not look very professional. We had a lovely corner table but unfortunately a very noisy lady on next table

Have eaten here several times and has never failed to disappoint. Lovely food and atmosphere, even having to sing happy birthday at least 5 times to fellow diners...😂 Always packed no matter what day of the week. A little gem on our doorstep! 👍💯

Overall experience was good, food was lovely and service was good, however this restaurant tends to get noisy - there were a few birthday celebrations there so the atmosphere was like a "party atmosphere ", not ideal for those looking for a quiet meal, ideal for those looking for a party feel.

We went on a Saturday night & were a party of 8 including 2 children. We also had a 7 month old baby. We were seated at the end of the restaurant , where the coat rack & spare chairs are stacked- probably because of the children! We didn’t mind the seating too much. We asked the manager to guide us with the food choices & he was kind enough to tailor some of the choices to our requirements. However it would have been helpful if he had advised us that the crab spaghetti was a little too hot for the children! The Mediterranean choices (starter & mains) especially the grilled ones, were good - grilled Halloumi, chicken, fish. The king prawns were a little tough on the palate & not big enough to be classified as king! The sticky toffee pudding was good but the ice cream & brownie was a little disappointing! Regarding the service, it was generally good.
All in all, it has some good places to sit for both large & small groups. The food is generally fresh with some above average dishes (esp those cooked on the open fire) & the service is good. We will go again & hope we have a better experience.

Overall, good food. Service was good. Can tell their dips and pitta are all homemade which is great. Both of us had the souvlaki and tasted fresh! Will happily go back again but nothing to rush back for.
