A lovely meal. The restaurant was fairly empty on this Tuesday lunchtime so it was quiet. I had the beef stiffado which was delicious though the vegetables were a bit too crunchy for me. Service was good though even though we had to attract the waiters attention a few times.

Galu has the potential to be an amazing restaurant but it needs to decide what it wants to be a restaurant or a nightclub, though it seems to have a steady stream of regulars that enjoy the mix. I think it could be better value for money with regards to the simple menu. The staff don’t seem happy to be there, maybe they were having a bad day!

I would definitely recommend to friends. The only reason I gave food 4 stars not 5 was because there was no lobster everything I ate was lovely!

A little on the expensive side but the dining experience is good enough to offset this - I only knock off 1 star for this under 'Value rating' but the rest is 5 stars. The food is always cooked to perfection so the kitchen really know what they are doing and the front of house are very courteous & welcoming. Nice little bar area to have a drink before and after your meal. For me its the Chilli & Garlic prawns followed by the Mixed Grill every time.

Been lots of times and always had an amazing experience. Tonight was disappointing unfortunately. Service is always good and still was great but the food and noise level just let it down tonight. The tables of 2 seem to have been pushed closer together too and being seated in the middle of 2 other couples we had no privacy.

Great place to go for a night out with friends, great cocktails, good atmosphere but most of the the food is consistently very very good. I just wish they had a separate lunch menu which was different to the evening dinner menu.

Lovely atmosphere...very friendly staff. Food was excellent. Only slight criticism woylld be that when ordering the seafood tagliatelle I specifically asked if the fish was shelled ready to eat. I was assured that it was but when it arrived not even the shrimp were peeled. They were very very small and almost impossible to peel.....so that was a bit disappointing. However I would deff visit again

I first went to Galu years ago and really enjoyed, it so I was looking forward to introducing new friends to the restaurant. I was really pleased that it was better than I had remembered. The food is top quality and the portion sizes are incredibly generous! The Greek Meze starter was more than enough for 2. The staff are really pleasant and when I had to make adjustments to my order on account of being pregnant, they were more than happy to make the changes. Those little touches make all the difference! There was a nice pace and we weren't rushed. The atmosphere was great too. I'll be back again soon!

Absolutely brilliant service from start to finish. Beautiful ambience to enjoy a meal and conversation in. Staff were efficient, friendly and polite. The manager was brilliant and made efforts to talk to his guests. He made my family feel like we really mattered to him rather than 'just another customer'; he made us feel looked after and all our needs were quickly met. The food was of top quality and the variety on both the food and drinks menu was enough to make anyone happy! I will definitely go back to this gem of a restaurant!

Went early on a Saturday (7pm) was very quiet, staff very friendly and service was good. Good selection of cocktails (quite expensive) and good menu. Had mezze for starters which was really nice however mains were slightly underwhelming- spaghetti beef Ragu did not have much taste but mixed grill was better (steak)

Busy local Cypriot/Greek/Mediterranean restaurant that offers wide choice of fayre from around the Mediterranean region. When here I tend to stick with the Cypriot choices as they tend to be good. On this visit I chose the beef Stifado which was very enjoyable.

Good, straightforward Turkish food. Tasty and fresh. Good quality. I don't appreciate the automatic addition of 12% tip. Wine was expensive for what are rather ordinary wines. Environment pleasant. A nice evening out with friends.

The steak leaves a lot to be desired as they don’t really cook it to your request. But everything else on the menu is very good and the drinks are amazing.

We have been a few times before but dont use the restaurant that often as quite far from where we live but always a pleasure going there.
We went on a Sunday and ordered from the Sunday roast menu
We had avocado and crayfish starter which was a substantial portion in itself and served with bread on the side. I ordered the roast beef and they asked how i like it cooked which is great for me as i like it a little more well done. Finished off with chocolate brownie and a blob of ice cream washed down with a glass of wine. Definitely a good size 3 course dinner and value for money. Its always a pleasure going there but we have always gone on quieter times. Staff are always warm and welcoming and definitely will be going back
