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

Having been recommended to go here, the food did not disappoint, but we had to wait for a table despite our reservation. It was crowded - certainly a sign of popularity - but really not enough staff to handle the demand on the night we went. Nice food, some dishes a bit cold from the kitchen, so doesn't quite get...

My wife and I would have never known this place existed had a woman not been standing on the street trying to get patrons. We stopped at another restaurant and had an hour plus wait so we kept looking. Ran into a woman who said she could get us right in and we chose to eat here and we are... More

My wife, young daughter and I went to the malt house for lunch when we were in Galway. The restaurant is tucked away off of the main high street and the décor inside is very nice. There is nothing particularly wrong with the Malt House, however, the service that we experienced was very slow, it took a long time for... More

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!
