We discovered this restaurant on a walk along the coast from Ballyvaughan. After an exceptionally friendly welcome we had a most enjoyable, high quality meal overlooking Galway Bay.

Four of us had dinner here on Saturday evening. We had planned to take advantage of the early bird menu but strayed off course as the full menu was that bit more inviting - that is not to say that the early bird menu was inadequate - just a little restrictive for us. The setting was magnificant, the interior decor... More

We decided to try this restaurant since it was close to where we were staying in Ballyvaughn. The food was so fresh and amazing and we all had either salmon or monk fish and they brought potatoes and fresh vegetables for the table to share that were cooked perfectly and delicious. The decor is beautiful and the view from the... More

If you want a good meal, excellent service and fine wines, try this. It's on the coast and worth the short drive from Ballyvaughn. Fresh seafood and a quiet, elegant atmosphere make the evening great from start to finish.

Had a wonderful meal here recently. Menu had good variety and wine list was priced well. Everything was excellent. Food perfectly cooked and full of flavour. Service was friendly and professional. I would highly recommend it. Great to see this quality food available in a small village in Ireland. Well done to all.

I was very impressed by the quality, inventiveness, and freshness of the food here. I had the crab beignets to start which were fantastic. My main was grilled monkfish that was equally impressive. For dessert, I went with the Guinness tart that was good, but after tasting my daughter's Eaton mess, I wish I'd gone for that! The quantities were... More

I had a family occasion here and it was very nice. We had Sunday lunch. Only fault would be the food wasn't hot as excepted and sizes of portions were a little small. Atmosphere and view was lovely!
