“Crowed for a Reason!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This tiny fish and chip joint is THE BEST. Choice of fish, batter crunchy, and chips divine. If you want to eat there, be prepared to scootch over and share a table. Open late so great for after theatre. Waitresses are extremely nice and patient as you hold up the line deciding!

“Best Fish n' Chips I've ever had.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

I had the Lemon Sole when I went and it was amazing. I'm never going to find anything back home that's going to live up to my expectations now.

“A great family meal!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Myself and my family (wife & daughters aged 4 & 6) stopped by for lunch last Saturday afternoon and were hugely impressed. Delicious fish and chips and very reasonable prices make this an essential stop for a hungry family in Galway. €27.00 for four sizeable meals and kids drinks (the adults are encouraged to bring a drink from the pub next door) was terrific value and the battered hake I had was fantastic. The owner too was very helpful and super friendly - highly recommended!!!
