Visited here on a busy Saturday evening and every thing about it suggested a bad experience . It was very very busy and we were crammed in like sardines but it turned out to be very good. The food was mostly Pizza and Pasta but it was extremely tasty ,the service was exceptional given how busy it was the staff... More

After my first visit to this restaraunt I would have given 5 out of 5 as I loved the quirky interior and the enchiladas were to die for the food was slightly pricy but portions were huge and so tasty, however, we recently returned and both the food and the staff have failed miserably it was so disappointing that we...

I remember Fat Freddy's Cat as a series of books which enjoyed a bit of cult status when I was a student in the late 1970s. Strolling up Quay Street in Galway last month I noticed “Fat Freddy's” restaurant on the right, so I went inside for lunch. The food was tasty and good value, orange juice, vegetable soup, Greek...

Enjoyed a trip to Fat Freddys after the bank holiday weekend. The service was fantastic & the restaurant was very busy. The menu was a bit limited with pizza making up the majority. Kids enjoyed it & it was not over priced. Would definitely take a trip back but would like if the menu was expanded.

Chose this place as had 2 teenagers with us. It's basically a pizza joint any other dish we got was bad. I ordered Cajun chicken which was served on garlic bread. The chicken came out that hot I couldn't eat it and gone rubbery. Definitely microwaved. For 14.95 with a few roast potatoes I felt ripped off. Mam had salad... More

A great place right in Galway, we liked the food so much we went a second night. Service could have been a bit friendlier but all together a great place!

Had lunch here on a Sunday over bank holiday weekend. Good location with lots of little pubs and restaurants, good atmosphere. Restaurant itself is small and crowded. We all ordered pizza, it came out quickly and was really nice , not to heavy and overwhelming. Good value for money.

The restaurant itself is nice and location is great. Food was okay, allthough there was mushrooms in my food and the menu didn't say anything about mushrooms. Service could have been better. I waited my check for almosy 30 minutes and at the end I went inside and asked to pay for my dinner. I was sitting outside and the... More

Greeted by friendly waiter who quickly gave us a seat even though it was 9.45 and we'd no reservation. Nice new world wines at reasonable prices and the food was great value and tasty. Service was great and friendly and atmosphere with 80s background just what the doctor ordered. I'll be back
