Cafe Gala Restaurant Review

: Named appropriately for the wife and muse of Surrealist artist Salvador Dali, this trendy café sits to the side of The Dali Museum, which houses the largest collection of Dali’s works outside of Spain. The architecture is spectacular, and the café offers a view of light and water rarely found along this scenic part of the city’s waterfront. Though limited, the menu presents a range of selections --- from “caldo gallego” (Spanish ham and white bean soup) to salads, sandwiches and wraps. Desserts include tiramisu de chocolate and “mantecadas” (Spanish crumb cookies). There are a few white and red wines on the menu, plus a pair of beers and locally roasted Kahwa coffee. Best of all, visitors can dine without paying the museum admission.
