Ate here last Saturday - a lovely sunny evening after a day of relentless "soft" rain that the West of Ireland does so well. As we had a reservation, we were placed at a window seat which looked out over Galway Bay. Staff were attentive and friendly - but the real star was the food. Started with king scallops and... More

After a very poor meal the previous evening, we were a little nervous - we needn't have worried! A lovely warm welcome, very attentive, friendly staff and mouth-watering menu made for an excellent evening with friends. Overlooking the bay, with a beautiful sunset, delicious and perfectly cooked food with a good wine selection - superb evening!

So, for years people have been telling me about places in the rural west with the best food ever. Then you get to the place and find it is a dark, greasy pub serving chips; and you wonder whether you live in the same country. So, when in BallyV the locals said go to this place, I expected the worst.... More

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.

The standard was superb, beautifully presented, and served by a most pleasant experienced american girl. We all had different choices,and of course tasted each others dishes! Would have no hesitation in recommending for a special meal, can't wait to go... More

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.
