“not worth a visit”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2012

really dissapointed by this establishment on more than one occasion, the decor is dated, water marks on ceiling and you can see owners letting this place go as no maintenance has been done in ages. the waiters are not friendly, food is worst out of all eateries at Woodlands boulevard... rather go to Heat for a classier atmosphere and far better food!

“Good food and swift service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2012

We go to O Galitos often. We go reguarly since it is close to home. The food is great and the service very good. We never wait long for our food. Their speciality is seafood, but the ribs and chicken is also excellent. I strongly recommend this restaurant. Good vibe and spacious seating.

“Great food, Great staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2012

I have eaten at this restaurant a few times by now in the past year, and so far it has far exceeded expectations. Good is excellent, staff is very friendly. Restaurant is mainly for sea-food but their meat is also very good. Would definitely recommend.

“Fine Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2012

Had dinner there with friends from Scandinavia and they reckon the steaks were excellent. I thought the queen prawns were real good value for money and were fresh and well prepared with a delicious 3 sauce combo on the side. However, as a starter I had clams - which was a bit of a disappointment - small and little meat. All over - O Galito's is probably still the best seafood restaurant in Pretoria.

“Just average.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2012 via mobile

Nothing stood out with the meal I had here. The food seemed bland, the same could be said about the decor and ambience. The service was not good. There is nothing else in Pretoria as far as fine dining seafood is concerned, so unless I want to drive to Pigalle in Joburg, this is the only option.
