Well done

A little restaurant-take away, we kept the Classic finger fish and chips! The fish was very fresh, a little fatty For my taste, too much oil, but not bad! The local is nice and the service is good and fast! Well done and good choice!

On Saturday, a very cold and breezy day my husband and I were looking for a place to eat as it was time for lunch. We passed it as we were going first to the market around Saint Nicholas Collegiate Church. There was one young man Damian, from County Clare holding the fort as it were. We ordered chowder and...

Excellent quality food, great taste and great value. Staff extremely friendly, helpful and professional. However, it is difficult to tell from the exterior that such quality food and service on the inside exists. Delighted I did dine here, will definitely be back and also recommend it to people.

This is a great little spot in Galway with lovely fresh food, good portions and very reasonable prices. Best battered sausages about and the chicken goujons are to die for. Fish is always lovely and fresh and the batter they use for everything is the best batter I have ever tasted. If you are looking for a nice comfort meal... More

Last time I was in this place a few years ago, it was fairly new and seemed to be going for a boutique chip shop vibe, serving almost gourmet style food in modern setting. Today, it seems the years have taken their toll on the interior and it could do with a refresh. However, the food was really good, just... More

Back here again and it was even better than last time. Tempura prawns, tartar sauce served in an oyster shell, a delicious salad with radish and the best ever chips with crispy bits-HEAVEN

This hiddden gem of the fish & chips tradition seems not to be afraid of competition in a fish &chips town such as Galway. They provide something a little different from tradition, putting a little more effort in the food presentation (and throwing in a couple of condiments more) than the typical "chipper". The fish is good, but then again... More

I visited this quaint place on the sat 10th of jan last. It was early in the day and we felt very hungry and cold. We got to kettle of fish and the lovely warmth and nice music was inviting. The chef/server was very helpful with our questions on menu selection. We finally decided on the chowder and god was... More

We dined here after a tour of the wild Atlantic way Galway section so we were well hungry and dying for some good seafood. We all settled on chowder and fish and chips. It was just lovely the chowder was full of fish and filling but we still managed the fish and chips which was spot on fresh and crispy... More
