Unexpectedly found myself sans-children on Valentines night (a night I hate dining out on) but ended up meeting my wife for an impromptu dinner. Called the Malt House with only an hours notice and they were nothing but accommodating. Staff were their usual excellent selves (though I believe their has been some turnover recently) Menu was very good (considering the... More

Our rainy, cold visit to Galway was brightened by a wonderful dinner at The Malt House. A little difficult to find in an alley off High Street but worth the search. Inventive food and attentive service and food. A good value. Lively ambience and delightful wait staff.

Best meal I had traveling for 12 days in Ireland. There is serious attention to detail in preparation and presentation! Added (necessary) bonus-- it tasted fantastic. I had sea bass with fresh vegetables and risotto balls(killer). All food was prepared to perfection with flavors and textures blending well. Service was excellent but not overdone. The Malt House can be a... More

I ate here with 15 friends last week and all I can say is yum! The goat's cheese starter was incredible, I could have had that again for main but I had chicken with pearl barley and a trio of chocolate mousse for dessert! It was delicious!

Great Food on offer, creative starters, kind and attentive service. A bit noisy due to Prom celebrating local teens and large groups of tourists - but you can avoid those by eating very early or very late.

Located along the main shopping street with easy access this spot is easy to get to by foot. The menu, while limited, had nice variety and the dishes eaten by our group of 4 were all excellently prepared. I loved my salmon preparation with the perfectly cooked fish laying on a bed of vegetables which can be a little hard... More

We have dined in the Malt restaurant over the last number of years since JJ opened it, for various family occasions. On all visits the food and service has been excellent with very helpful staff. However the reason we keep returning is the consistent quality of the meals and the excellent service. Hope to keep going back for more family... More

Our group of eight, adults and teenagers arrived in the centre of Galway a little late by local standards and found to our dismay that many of the traditional pubs had already closed their kitchens for the night. We were recommended The Malt House and decided to try it out despite being worried that it was going to be expensive.... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant on a Thursday evening while walking through Galway city in and out of places deciding where to eat. We didn't have a reservation but that was not a problem and we got seated straight away. The waiter and waitress were attentive and gladly helped us out with recommendations when we couldn't decide between mains. The... More

We couldn't get into any of the other restaurants in the area & stumbled upon the Malt. It had good reviews so why not? couple in front of us were in the same boat. Waiter looked like we were really a bother to him but seated us outside. Took our orders & we never saw him again. Outside seating was... More
