Wonderful views, super food, but for me the best part was the Guinness! You took your first sip, raised your eyebrows at its depth and creaminess and instantly wished you did not have your car!

Once again, an excellent lunch of prime, fresh seafood. Usual friendly service from the great staff . Dining here on the terrace overlooking the harbour, and inlet from Galway Bay, is a treat for the senses, as much as the stomach!

We recently spent a week staying in a holiday cottage very near Linnane's, so because we had seen good reviews for this restaurant / bar we booked an evening meal. It was so good we returned another two times during our stay. One night I decided to have the Lobster, the waiter walked out onto the quay and hauled up... More

We went here as a family and none of us were disappointed. The food was of good quality -- I had the crab claws as a starter (fantastic) and the scallops on rice as the main (good). My only issue was that the food wasn't as innovative as contemporary Irish cooking can be. That said, it was good, fresh cooking... More

Try the cold seafood platter.....little bit of everything, all good. Salmon delicious. Setting very fun. So glad we found this and we went back it was so good. Great setting, we watched the currents completely turn around right in front of us.

Wonderful location in New Quay overlooking Galway Bay on beautiful sunny afternoon. Great seafood served by willing and friendly staff. Al fresco dining, crab cakes with side salad and great crusty brown bread. Beautifully cooked scallops on rice with side salad. Yummy! Well done to all at this wonderful bar/restaurant, highly recommended.

Beautiful food after a brisk walk around the Flaggy Shore. Light crab cakes with salad . Hard to find the perfect crab cakes but these are some of the best. The vegetarian butternut and lentil burgers were good too. I have eaten here many times before and it keeps getting better. We had a baby with us , No problem.... More

Perfect location. Fabulous food. Excellent wines. Great atmosphere. Make sure you stop for dinner if you're in the location - you will not be disappointed. However we wouldn't recommend it for young kids.
