We booked a table here on the basis of the tripadvisor reviews but it failed to live up to expectations.
The whole experience was underwhelming and felt rushed.
The menu was interesting with several dishes we liked the look of. We opted for starter of sardines and the salt cod and lobster herb fritters. The sardines were ok but fairly bland, accompanied by a small side salad there was no bread or seasoning or dressing to lift the fish. The fritters were disappointing, they had little taste or seasoning.
Mains were better, the lamb stew was tasty and the pork had potential but was overcooked and dry albeit the flavours were good and the sauce especially nice.
The biggest issue was the speed of service and slightly overbearing staff, our entire meal took 35 minutes from start to finish with staff either delivering or removing plates or asking us how the food was every few minutes. I know having attentive staff can be good but this was just a bit too intrusive.
I don't think we've ever spent such a short amount of time in a restaurant.
gievn more time we'd have had a second drink and probably dessert but we just felt as if they wanted us out of the restaurant as soon as possible despite the fact the place was half full.
Maybe we caught them on a bad night but I'm afraid to say we wouldn't return.

Everything about our evening out was perfect. The welcome and friendly staff, the charming setting, the varied menu, with something to suit every taste, and the food itself.
It’s rare that a group of a dozen people are all and individually so impressed.
Just first class.

We just had the most amazing meal in a beautiful cosy restaurant. The Turkish food was delicious and the service was spot on. The staff was friendly,engaging & charming. The food was authentic and generous. Everything is homemade and a family recipe. So good. Am stuffed. Eat here!

We went to the Galley for my wife’s birthday and we were greeted by Ugur (the owner), he was very helpful and friendly. Food we ordered were presented beautifully and were very tasty. Suprise birthday song and the cake was the icing on the evening! Thank you all at Galley. We will return..
