We eat here at least four times when we go to Skala. Food is great as are the staff who are so friendly and ready to help in any way they can. We have been going to Skala for 8 years now and always enjoy going to Galera.

Easily the best place to eat in Skala. Not the largest menu but there are specials every night your never rushed and nothing seems to be too much trouble, to many places want you in and out as quickly as possible. Try Galera once and I'm sure you will return. If your into sweet things I can recommended strawberry Pavlova.

Tucked down one of the side streets and could easily be missed. We had very good food here lamb chops were very good.

Me and my boyfriend visited Galera on recommendation, and we were not let down! I can happily say this is the best place we ate whilst on holiday in Skala! It was so good we visited it 4 times. Firstly the staff here are so polite, welcoming and always ready to help. There is none of that annoying 'hello, how... More

We found this restaurant towards the end of our stay so only used it the once but if we had longer we would have returned. There was a good choice on the menu and the meals that we (3) had were really good. The staff were very attentive and a nice touch for us was that they moved a large... More

I have read through the Trip Advisors very good comments on the food at this restaurant which makes me believe that on the night we ate there they must have been having an off night. We chose the Lamb Kleftico, when the food came the potatoes and veg that accompanied the Lamb were very tasty but what should have been... More

The owner, Annie and the front of house staff, Spiros, Eleni and Areti do their very best to ensure that you will have a wonderful meal, always attentive never pushy. This is a great place to relax , have a great meal and let the world pass by. Highly... More

I would have given 5 stars but it wasn't quite as good as one other restaurant in Skala, but definitely better than the others we tried. The halloumi kebabs were delicious! The kababs themselves were lovely, the potatoes they came with were the best potates I've ever eaten (I'm not a potatoe fan) and the pitta and tzatziki were scrummy... More

Went here in 2011 and returned twice this year. Good food and very good service. The location is good too, off the Main Street in Skala. Pavlova for desert is lovely but big enough to be shared by 2.
