Good dinner choice in Salthill

We ate dinner on a Monday night and the place was very busy. The menu is varied and the food was good. Prices are reasonable and portions are big! Staff is very friendly and forthcoming.

I've visited this restaurant for lunch a few times and always found the food and service to be good. The menu has a good variety, lots of seafood which is always great in a seaside town. It's a bit pricey but it has a lovely atmosphere and staff are always attentive and friendly.
