No feedback as yet on this August 2020 arrival in this ever-more fashionable seaside town, but it’s a July 2022 tip from Giles Coren writing in The Times and awarding it 23/30. “I probably shouldn’t have been as surprised as I was by the low, low prices on the menu” achieved with “unfashionable fish – mussels, sea trout, plaice, mackerel – and plenty of pasta.”

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"Galleria is still our absolute favourite in a town where we are spoilt with the quality and choice of great places to eat. Several of our visiting friends and family have commented that Gianluca's cuisine is the best food they've ever eaten – a definite trend – so it's not just us! For a very special celebration, we took over the restaurant, the food was wonderful and a year later, friends and family still talk about that memorable night. We visited recently to celebrate another special landmark and the evening couldn't have been lovelier. The menus is small, presenting sustainably sourced, seasonal dishes, changing frequently. There is always choice for vegetarians, alongside excellent fish and seafood. We don't have oysters locally but they are sourced from the finest providers and always deliciously fresh. A range of European and English wines complement the dishes, Jack always gives informed advice when we want a change from our favourites. Whatever is on the menu, Galleria will not disappoint. Just book or follow Instagram for available tables, it's tiny, intimate with a convivial buzz and genuinely lovely service."

"Extremely good food (cooked by charming chef) but edge taken off by the regular waiter who is truly unfriendly. Many people I've talked to have said the same thing "
