Have frequented Galicia's for a number of years. Another reviewer on here remarked they were shocked at a 100% male staff. It has always been that way and I've never thought anything of it. Spanish omelette is a staple and as good as ever. Crablets and chicken croquettes darker than normal but still delicious. The aioli is very very good.... More

After reading a lot of good reviews on T.A, my friend and I decided to visit the place for dinner. The place is quite large and welcoming. For starters we shared a large dish of Octopus Salad. Nicely presented and tasted pretty good. Together with the Salad we had a Spanish Omelette which again tasted pretty amazing. For our main... More

We all had a wonderful evening for my husbands birthday although this was a busy Saturday night the service and food could not have been better, our waiter Pedro was so hard working and lovely, all the staff work very hard but he is a credit to the restaurant and we will be coming back soon!

Plenty of choice, good portion sizes and better value than many other Tapas restaurants I've experienced in England.

I went to Galicia at the weekend, and I have been here a couple of times before over the past 3 or 4 years. My last visit didn't disappoint - very friendly, speedy service and excellent tapas. Very good portions, and the house speciality - Octopus Galician style (pulpo al gallego) is to die for! Only negative points I have:... More

Don't go there if you have tasted high quality Spanish food. Was surprised to see that the staff was 100% male. I don't really have anything good to say about the place, it was a waste of £ and time.

Me and my friends went there for our christmas dinner. My friend called there before to book a table, but when we came, no table was booked for us. Luckily there was a free table, so we could sit there. Anyway, their tapas are great, really recommend it :) Restaurant itself is a nice place, but for me the music... More

Me and 2 friends arrived at Galicia on Friday 9th December 2016 around 8.10pm. At 8.30 we were still waiting for someone to greet us and tell us how long to wait for a table, We spotted an empty table by the door, and the barman suggested we take it. By 8.50pm, no one had bought over a menu, taken... More

Went for A Birthday meal for seven of us. Staff very attentive and helpful. Have been here quite a few times over the years and really felt food was not great this tome. Really lacked flavour and did not enjoy it. Will look elsewhere.

Thank 900DDM
