O Galito

Traditional, hearty, Portuguese dishes are given a Mediterranean flair at the rustic O Galito restaurant thanks to head chef Luisa Fernandes. The atmosphere here is relaxed, and cuisine represents the flavours of the Alentejo region, and they stock the wine to match!

What to Order

Fernandes’ dishes are all seasonal and the winter season brings with it game dishes while summer is a feast of fresh seafood. The wild pigeon rice is one of the most popular dishes while the Acorda, a homemade bread stew, is a real heart warmer. If you’re feeling daring, opt for the pig’s feet with coriander.

How to Get Here

O Galito sits a 20-minute drive north of the city, and it’s well worth the cab fare to visit. Alternatively, take the metro blue line from Reboleira to Colegio Militar/ Luz, from here it’s just a five-minute walk to the restaurant. The restaurant has a lively atmosphere on both Friday and Saturday nights and to avoid disappointment, always book well in advance.
