We were looking for a restaurant were we could have lunch with friends who live in southerner Dutchess county (we live in western Suffolk). Mt. Vernon is midway between us and the restaurant we usually have gone to is closed. So we picked Galitos. What a wonderful experience. Great service, great selections and everything was quite good. Although the prices... More

Met another couple and every other sentence was about Galitos... We had to see for ourselves... Oh My God... I already know we will be regulars. Food is great with even better portions.

Excellent little gem hidden near Metro-North station. Shrimp and Sausage appetizers were the epitome of it's the little things that make you happy. I had a pork and potato dish that I would definitely order again. My wife thought her steak special could have used some more spice although it was tender and cooked to order. The sangria was yummy... More

Authentic Portuguese cuisine in a homey neighborhood restaurant. A wonderful experience. If I lived closer I'd eat there several times a week. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere. If you can't go to Portugal this is the next best thing!

Went for wedding anniversary celebration and was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere. Lovely little restaurant, food was excellent, although they had run out of the things we first wanted to order on this Sunday night. Good service. Will go again.

A couple of us had been there before and loved it and secondly it is close to the Metro North station so it's a easy commute if you are coming from NYC and those coming up from NYC. It did not disappoint us this... More

The best grilled food, the friendliest staff, and a great wine selection. The owner, Fernando is one of the best people you will ever meet. Now for the best part, I have never had a meal I did not like. My son and I love the steak with the fried egg on top and fries. We get it with salad... More

Fernando and his team make you feel right at home, "Brigado". The food is wonderful, the wine pours are generous and the value is good. I have been there many times and never had a bad meal. A little slice of heaven in Mount Vernon.
