We visited with two fussy children (6 and 13 yrs) and we found something for everyone. The food was piping hot and served quickly. It was very good quality and the price was fair. The feel of the place is very welcoming and high standard, in some ways the exterior doesn't do the inside justice. We'd certainly go back again

We were in Co. Clare on a mid week break, we went to Galway and Salthill on Wednesday 25th, we popped into the Galleon restaurant for our elevenses, we got the most gorgeous scones with butter, jam and cream, even the presentation was excellent. We have eaten in that restaurant several times over the years. It is always excellent

Stopped in here on a dreary Friday night and it was just the tonic to the miserable weather! Homely food, ample (generous!) portions and excellent friendly and efficient service. My only disappointment was that I was too full for dessert. Next time!!

Had a meal here on Tuesday 17th Feb. Every table was occupied and I understand why. We had Spag Bol and Atlantic Sea Mornay. Both were absolutly fabulous. Great portions and a fantastic price for what you get. We will be eating here again, for sure.
