Wishing all our lovely, loyal customers a wonderful holiday period. We will be closing up for a little break,5pm Sunday 23. Reopening on Friday 4 January…
Here is a great Galleon story. One of our chefs Colin was doing his Christmas shopping online at Amazon, based in the US. He had his parcel delivered to the Galleon. When it arrived, there was a handwritten included which said, ‘Hi, my name is so-and-so and I live here in Ohio (or whatever the US city was), my wife and I were at The Galleon last year and WE LOVE IT!’. Also included was a photo of his wife sitting at the boat table!
Conceived by original owners Janet and Graham in the 80’s, we respectfully try to keep things in tact from the early days: The hand printed roman blinds, 50’s table sand chairs, the boat table, the booths, the mural on the bar. We've had to do some repairs in recent years to keep the boat afloat, but otherwise, this is an original neighbourhood institution. We’re still serving Spanakopita and a classic homemade burger.
Catch the 3, 16 or 96 trams to Luna Park (Stop 138). Bike racks right outside to lock up your bike; if you drive, street parking almost always available in the immediate area – Albert, Acland, Carlisle or Havelock Streets.
