Very good Tapas in Palamos. Nice, friendly and involving atmosphere. Waiters offer you different tapas, you can take which you prefer from the tray. In the end you pay for the number of little plates you collect. I suggest it......

i've been here plenty of times, somehow they are always without any much space to go inside but thats why the food is incredibly good and not expensive, this is one my favourites places here in Palamós.

Every time we visit Palamos we go to El Galeo. The food is good, both for dinner or if you want to eat something small. I like this place a lot!

We had a great time outside El Galeo. The waitresses kept coming to our table with delicious warm tapas (1,50-4,00 eur per plate), the riocha della casa (2,50 per glass) was really good and the staff was warm and helpful. Awesome night!

If you want to taste tapas in Palamos it is the best place. But it is a bar, not a restaurant!

It delivered what I always imagined a real tapas experience should be: simple but tasty snacks that are enjoyed with a drink in a good atmosphere. The place can get very crowded and often there is a line, but I guess... More
