Coffees and a meat and garlic with chips to share for €14. Reasonable for lunch. Probably wouldn't go out of our way to re - visit but okay for quick lunch - was open during siesta.

This was our first visit to El Gala and it will not be our last. Busy place, so you need to arrive before 1000 if you want to sit outside. The tapas were traditional, well cooked and plentiful. Friendly prompt service helps make this place a winner in every sense.

Have... More

We had a very nice lunch here and the menu presented us with several local dishes performed to perfection. The lobster was wonderful and so of course the cold meats platter with the king of pata negra ham included. A lovely venue for dining also in the evening, just around the corner of a buzzy bar square and walking distance... More

Am surpised this is not listed on the site - great restaurant and tapa bar. Nice outside seating. One of the better meals I have had. Service is great. For a drink and Tapas, it is brillant. Stand or sit on high stools around barrells in the open air. One of my favourite tapas was their Pate. All ot them were great. Good mix of food on menu. Very professional.
