“Out for out T.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Husband and 2 adult children popped in one evening for our T. It was busy and there was a great buzz. Manager Connor Fleming had us quickly seated and we had a lovely feed. Food is freshly prepared and arrives piping hot, I hate lukewarm or cold food.

Service was excellent and friendly and it is a lovely place to people watch while waiting for ones food to arrive. Not that you have to wait too long, they get it just right.

Thanks to all in the 12.

Grace, Stephen & 2.

“Excellent sea-trout.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

A very busy restaurant with no reservations. Used to be called Twelve Pins,now just the Pins.
I didn't have a starter,too big a lunch. My main course was lovely piece of sea-trout with plenty of vegetables. I don't sea-trout on menu's as often these days so that was a real treat. Decent wine and Guinness of course.

“good quality food, livelt atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

we went with friends on a lively crowded friday night. The choice of food was good and we sampled between us fish and meat dishes. We were impressed with the freshness and quality of our food. The service was efficient and we came away having enjoyed ourselves, though the noise levels sometime made it difficult to talk across our table of five.

“Great pizzas! Vegetarian friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

The pizzas were very good. They use animal rennet free cheese, so this is good for vegetarians. The pizzas are wood fired. The area is nice & close to Galway city center by car.
