It was recommended we try this restaurant in the heart of Bellavista area. The area is the go to place for the younger crowd and many restaurants have a range of prices and options. Galindo was recommended too us so we tried it. This is a very casual place and we were very pleasantly greeted and offered a table to our liking. When they learned we didn't speak Spanish, a waiter who spoke excellent English, came over to help us which showed that they were very interested in taking good care of us. We ordered a variety of dishes and were most pleased with the empanadas. The other food was quite good as well and the prices were very reasonable for the area. The food and beer came very fast and was hot. Definitely worth trying this place if this is the type of restaurant you might be interested in when you are in this area. I expect on Friday and Saturday nights it might get very busy after 7pm so possibly plan to get there a bit earlier on those nights.

We had pastel de choclo at Galindo ten years ago and it was to die for. We smelled it when it came to the people at the next table and just had to have some. It was fabulous.

When we went there again in March, it was late in the evening and the pastel came to the table very quickly. I suspected that it had been made hours before and was heated up in the oven or a microwave. It was mediocre, which was unfortunate, as we had such good memories. Oh well, things change. It's too bad sometimes the quest for quality changes also.

I was there with friends. The restaurant is good, although we felt very pressed by the manager of the restaurant. He was pressing our attendant to get our orders ASAP. I rather go to another place next time, where I can seat and relax.

very nice restaurant, friendly staff, great food and also nice beer. also try the type-of-sangria-kind of drink - it is vino tinto with strawberries - yummy :) we even went there twice though we usually try to go to different places.
as a starter you have to try the meat or camarones pil-pil - it is delicious!!

This place was recommended by the bartender at my hostel and it did not disappoint. Good local food, a respectable drink menu, and great service. I had the pastel de choclo and a Galindo stout beer. Both were delicious, if a little heavy. Pastel de choclo is like a shepherd's pie written a slightly sweet crust of cornbread.
