La Galette information
This lovely little restaurant combines an intimate dining area with checked tablecloths and cuisine that the owner describes as ‘baroque vegetarian’. The food (both veg and non-veg) is a revelation, blending creative flavours with a strong base in traditional home cooking. The croquetas de manzana (apple croquettes) are a house speciality, but the truth is that everything on the extensive menu is good. The only problem here is that the tables are so close together you get the feeling that diners need to breathe in and out at the same time for everyone to fit.
