Had lunch here on our first day on the island. We weren't sure because it looked a little small....but wow, what a wonderful gem of place. Everything was wonderful. Our waitress was so great. Service was fast and attentive. Don't walk by this place....you won't be sorry.

This restaurant has a great variety of beer and wine. They have sushi, cheese plates, gelato, seafood and coffee. When we first came we thought wow what a huge variety but everything this fresh and excellent! We ended up coming twice in the 2 days here because it was such amazing quality food.

While visiting Catalina, my boyfriend and I asked a few locals to recommend a restaurant for dinner and the name CC Gallagher came up more than once so we were intrigued. We decided to stop there in the afternoon and shared a cheese plate and a couple of glasses of wine. Our server Dean was a delight to talk to,... More

Dinner was awesome. The band playing music was good, The sushi was good and the desserts are awesome. Nice place for couples but also good for family dinner.

I had a Sonoma Bagel (goat cheese, lox, capers and tomatoes on an onion bagel) and a prosciutto and fig flatbread pizza that were both excellent. The flatbread had the added surprise of a blue cheese, which really complemented the other flavors.

We visited CC because our hotel staff told us that they have the best coffee-espresso bar, indeed they do.

The restauant has changed over the few years we have been coming here. Now offering tapa, sushi, flatbread pizza, etc. it used to feel more intimate and cozy; now there are more tables and it is noisier...not bad, just a change. Pur meal of soup and flatbread pizza was pretty average...again, nice surrounding.

We had tapas and sushi. Food looked lovely but sushi really didn't taste like much. We ordered Descanso roll and were disappointed at how expensive their signature sushi was and how utterly bland it was. Tapas were OK even though menu said tapas came with crackers, none were served. Dinner for two was mediocre for nearly $100. So saying, the... More
