Galitos Restaurant in Mount Vernon offers authentic Portuguese cuisine

A few weeks ago I had my first dinner in Galitos after the return of Chef Luisa Fernandes as its Executive Chef. I was glad to see that the food quality continues to be totally outstanding. The service was friendly & helpful. Galitos does provide a very authentic Portuguese food experience. On Fridays do not miss their special buffet option: 12 appetizers, 6 main dishes and desserts for $20 per person plus live music. http://www.galitos.us/

      Galitos is one of my favorite local restaurants. Their fried calamari is always excellent and the Portuguese steak with the fried egg on top is something I really enjoy. A busy night can overwhelm the servers though but even when service is a little slow it is well worth it.
