Rua Deli is a great place to eat.

Another delicious and pleasurable experience in Rua. My favourite way to start the holidays is to stop off in in Rua for their delicious Pate, to takeaway from the deli or to savour in the cafe. My husband had an amazing steak sandwich packed with the quality ingredients that Rua is so famous for. The staff were on hand, welcoming... More

Called in for lunch with my wife again last time and I feel dissapointed. The food was amazing, fresh local produce on plate, as on our previous visit but we were so dissapointed on the service by older lady over her forties that served us. It looks like our last visit.

Visited here for my birthday and I was not disappointed. Really like going into someone's home for a meal and so many delicious choices. In the end we chose the taster menu so had a sample of most dishes all home produced and fresh made. We would certainly recommend a visit.

Delicious, freshly made baked and savoury produce, with locally sourced ingredients. All with a good cup of coffee, in a central location! Park for town centre, and enjoy!

Called in for lunch passing Castlebar. Well worth the slight diversion. Staff very helpful and friendly. Food is of excellent quality and well worth the few extra euro to get such great quality. Wiil be back and looking forward to checking out their sister restaurant also in the town. Highly recommend

I've visited cafe couple times and always got lovely food and nice treats to go. I saw previous reviews and I completely agree on food side, most of service is friendly however older woman who serves is ignorant and have weird attitude and that's why it's good, only good.

This place is fantastic, very different idea in terms of layout etc. The food is amazing and I love their coffee and desserts. There is one waitress though serving that has a terrible attitude and she is very ignorant and not very helpful, it's almost as though she begrudgingly serves you. She's a bit older then other staff members and... More

Gorgeous food - soup, brown bread, Mayo mezze, lemonade, chocolate pudding, Brack & butter pudding. You get what you pay for. Absolutely amazing for a country town in the west of Ireland.
