“Great food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

We were here a few years ago for a meal and weren't impressed. We got a gift voucher as a gift so we decided to go a couple of weeks ago. Well done on the improvements. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Definitely will be calling again.

“Good food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Delicious food, great wine and really good service from friendly and helpful staff - the only negative was we received our main courses 10 minutes after our starters. We had barely time to digest our starters and the main arrived. The goats cheese starter was gorgeous and the monkfish tikka was very tasty. Nice portion sizes too. Would definitely eat here again and the bar downstairs was great!

“Food was disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

I find it very hard to write this review as I am visiting this restaurant for many years and I would always defend this restaurant but unfortunately this visit was extremely disappointing.
We all had the 3 courses from the Al a Carte menu, although it wasnt mentioned on the night but all of us have admitted since that nobody enjoyed their food, it wasnt the McSwiggans standard that we usually receive, and although this is the restaurant we always meet up in for a catchup, we would be very hesitant to go back.
The staff were great on the night as they always are.
Before when you dined in McSwiggans you had to order your sides separate I think they should go back to this and the new Chips/Wedges that you receive are terrible and all at the table agreed, your definately better off paying for your side dish.

“Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Went to galway for the weekend.went into town on the saturday night to get food and asking locals where to go..was told try McSwiggans.went in but without a reservation it was a 45 minute wait which is all ways a good sign.walked around for a bit but could find no were as nice so went back willing to wait but they squeezed us into a big table...the food here was the best I've had in a long time with all my travels around ireland and very reasonably priced would have no problem recommening and returning in the near future.
