For a classy, old school European meal, look no further than The Gala Restaurant. The decor is old worldly and the wait staff are as formal as their waistcoats and bow ties but the menu is thoroughly modern and service is generous. The Gala is known to care for its diners with complimentary bread, free sorbet between courses and dishes on the house when wait times are longer than usual.

The Gala Restaurant - User Reviews


Dined at Gala for our 3rd anniversary dinner after plucking the name from Rob Broadfield’s Good Food book. Rated at a high 16.5 out of 20, I had cautiously high expectations of this restaurant. For entrée I devoured a Thai-style crayfish thermidor which was sensationally done. Well seasoned coconut sauce warmed gently with chilli and coriander, absolutely fantastic and gone in a flash. My partner feasted on the pan-fried scallops with potato gnocchi; what a stunning combination and perfectly executed. Soft, sweet scallops perched on top of thick rounds of gnocchi – I was apprehensive when I saw the size of the potato bites and expected to be chewing on Tip Top raw dough, but was delighted as they melted into nothingness in my mouth. For mains I was served with the sweet duet of veal and lamb - both meats were cooked to perfection; soft, pink and very tasty. Not keen on the goats cheese and white asparagus but I put this down to personal taste; the snow pea cream however was blissful. My partner had the prime beef fillet, cooked at a perfect medium. Our mains were accompanied by seasonal steamed veg and braised red cabbage with glazed apples and prunes. The pruney sweetness of the cabbage disappointed a little and we didn’t each much of this side. Dessert saw us through with a trifle-quark soufflé served with freeze-dried raspberries, macaroons and the tartest, sharpest, almost-painful-to-eat passionfruit jelly. Delicious, but in very small doses. My partner was pleased to receive a very rich, very strong coffee which he commented on several times during the evening and the following day! All in all, a wonderful dining experience. At our request, Hans Lang chose the wine for our meals and it was delightful to have the owner so closely involved in our dining experience. I would heartily recommend this restaurant to friends and  23/12/2010
