Very low key and unassuming restaurant. Very good food at very reasonable prices. Staff is genuine and friendly serving many FWI classics. A very good option for a value based lunch or dinner.

The former pier-piri is now the very low key but, very good Galawa. A menu that is pretty basic but with very good food. Perfect option for a low key and reasonably priced restaurant.

Galawa used to be one of my favorite restaurants on the island, although I know my fellow diners feel it has been consistently average. During my last visit, the service was poor and less accommodating than usual, despite us being only 1 of 3 tables...More
