We were on a tight schedule, since we only had 1h15 on Galway, as part of a tour. We didn't emphasize this to the waitress and, thanks to a mistake, we only got our food an hour later, leaving us with 15 minutes to eat and run for our coach. It was not pleasant, but it happens, we were unlucky.... More

Big portions but nothing special about the food. Chilli con Carne had a very peppery heat , not much else to taste. Pizzas a bit too heavy Good bottled beer selection . I am fussy though.

Always seems busy when we walked past whilst in Galway. Food was very tasty albeit the order was a little muddled. Lovely place that accommodates families well. Would definately go back.

The food in Fat Freddy's is decent but the service in this restaurant really leaves a lot to be desired. For the most part, the staff seemed to be bothered by customers and were in no way welcoming or happy to be there. One waitress was very visibly rolling her eyes and sighing at her tables, and the maitre d'... More

Hygiene wise this place turned my stomach, the food was disgusting too. There were flies around our food and we spent the entire meal swatting them away! We were never asked were we okay or checked on. Shabby place and terrible food.

This was just what we needed after a long day on the road. We wanted something simple and relaxed and that is exactly what Fat Freddies offered. Our server was very attentive even though it took a while for our food to come out. I ordered the sweet chili chicken pizza which was very tasty and reasonably priced. My friend... More

Wandered around the city for a while looking at the various menus for each restaurant. My friend is vegan so we needed somewhere to suit us both. We went back to Fat Freddy's after another quick look around. We had a table straight away (luckily as someone had just cancelled) and the selection on the menu was fantastic. We were... More
