Amazing food

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... read 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.

After half day of shopping a coffee break was a must. I was looking for something cosy with good coffee when saw Rua. Coffee was great and I like takeway cups design :) I heard food is also delicious so I will come back during my next visit.

Went in here for a coffee on the way to the airport. Sat at a table and after a couple of minutes ordered two cappuccinos. The place was very busy and the two waitresses working their socks off. After ten minutes the coffee arrived and the waitress said "the coffee is on us, so sorry for your wait." We couldn't... More

This deli is in a good location& its central to the courthouse and on the opposite side of town to its sister Café Rua (which I love) this is ok for a coffee and a sandwich but its not as cosy of laid back as its sister the food is excellent and the deli is amazing

Was bloody hot today so I stopped in for a quick lunch to take away and stumbled upon this incredible salad - it was chicken with Thai noodles, some carrot salad and this DIVINE peanut salsa...coupled with a blood orange San Pellegrino and my afternoon was complete! Busy lunch spot but the line seemed to move quickly...would definitely stop in... More

The food here is really of excellent quality, but that is evident in the price. Everything is fresh and has that wholesome 'home made' feel to it - very good, very tasty, and you know the ingredients used are right. Everything I've had from here has been very good, but it's not cheap. Lovely for a 'nice' box of scones... More

I love the food in this café but can never leave without a range of goodies from the deli counter to take home (nettle cheese is a favourite!) There is usually a queue half way up the stairs but if you have the time, it is well worth the wait. I brought a friend here on one visit and we... More

I have heard good things about this restaurant for a long time. Passing through Castlebar... I decided to put the recommendations to a test. The food I received to my table was good and tasty. However I did wait too long in my opinion to provide an item from the " specials" menu. I did receive prompt and efficient service... More
