Came across this place on a very busy evening in August, with a vegetarian in the foursome we wanted somewhere that offered more than a veggie pasta dish. We all ate delicious food and enjoyed the great service. A good, varied menu with something for everyone. An added extra was the door through to the Kings Head pub where we... More

We came upon this restaurant by chance and are very glad we did! We arrived with our 4 year old daughter and were seated immediately. Although the restaurant didn't have a children's menu, the staff were very helpful and welcoming. They made a meal for her (sausages, potatoes and veggies) which she ate very happily indeed. From the enticing menu... More

With my entire table of 5 (with 5 appetizers and 5 entrees) absolutely everything we ordered was delicious. I had the vegetarian fennel soup and a feta salad - both were great! My friend had the meat-filled "Best of Irish" and loved it. Can be tough to find (behind the King's Head) but it is definitely worth searching for!

It is very difficult for fine dining establishments in Galway during race week. The demand is huge and the challenge to deliver quality to huge numbers is rarely met. The Malt House had sensibly limited its menu during my recent visit for dinner. The cold starters were excellent and beautifully presented. But only one of the four main courses met... More

We came across this restaurant by accident having gone into the 'Kings Head' looking for food. As they had finished serving food, we turned to leave and spied the door into the Malthouse. (Tip-tell staff to recommend it as we were told by a waitress that there was no food being served in the Kings Head and we almost left).... More

I visited this restaurant with my wife during an overnight in Galway. The place was quite busy and we were politely invited to wait at the bar while a table was prepared (should have pre-booked). After the meal we could see why the place was so full as the food was delicious. For starters I had the goats cheese and... More

I have eaten here on numerous occasions, it's my go-to spot for when friends are visiting. Food is always delicious and staff are helpful and friendly.The flavour combinations are always on point, it was here that my obsession with chilli chocolate cake began many years ago! Perfectly tucked away from the the bustling streets of Galway..a real gem of a... More
