Popped in for a quick meal

Very fast service, very friendly staff. The place had a really nice ambiance to it. Delicious food, huge portions which I had trouble finishing. But that was definitely the only downside which isn't bad at all!

Best pizza in Ireland. Always crowded and always a wait to get a table, but worth it. Nice thin and crisp (but not too crisp) pizza crust, well seasoned sauce, and just the right amount of cheese.

Ate in Fat Freddy's on a Saturday night. Galway was buzzing with a very lively atmosphere. Great pizza's, desserts and beer!! Ate al fresco although probably a little cool but blankets and outdoor heaters took the "edge off". Bustling street which provided an excellent opportunity to people watch. Would recommend.

The name might surprise you, but this was one of the best food we had in all of Ireland. The bruschetta is absolutely out of this world! DONT MISS IT! We enjoyed a bottle of wine and a few delicious appetizers and left happier than a clam in the sea.

We have been searching around Ireland for a great pizza place, and we finally found one. Service was good, and the food was even better! I recommend the Fat Freddy's pizza if you go here.

Six of us ate here and we all had a great evening. Service was excellent and the staff really friendly.

Take a look at the lamp shades, very... More

My Mrs,four year old daughter and myself all enjoyed our meals here,it was mentioned to us by a member of staff at our hotel as somewhere that was nice and "child friendly" so we gave it a go and were all more than happy with the food and service.
