Very nice space with a some tables outside. They have numerous Cataplana dishes on offer unlike most places who only offer it with bacalhau and clams. Food tastes greats and fresh. The staff are really pleasant and friendly. Will love to return again. High recommended.

Had tasty Cataplana and it was filling enough that we couldn't order any dessert. Service is very good and attentive.

Called for a quick lunch. It was not busy but were greeted by a very pleasant waitress who took our order with a smile, and the food was served really quickly. A very basic lunchtime meal but well cooked,hot,tasty, and at a great price. On this showing I would recommend O Galeao.

Mediocre food , cataplana with mussels was ok, but the shrimp were overcooked! The sauce was ok but without flavour. Good price, clean, and ok wine. Very friendly staff and good location.

Stopped here for dinner on our last night in Lagos. The salad was tasty. My seafood pasta was pretty good, my friend got the pizza. The crust was bland and the pizza sauce strangely sweet. Couldn't give 4 stars for an Italian place that served meh pizza. Our waitress was attentive and sweet.

I used to come here years ago and had read it had changed ownership this year. Well, for my money everything was great - I had pasta both times and it was perfectly cooked and well portioned. The house wine is perfectly drinkable. All in all a great job done and such a bubbly efficient server who looked after us... More
