“Formerly Sonny Molloy's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Had lunch here a few weeks ago - on a super hot day in Galway - it was nice as they had all the doors and windows open so the breeze was great - lunch was good - had a chicken wrap and fries - well prepared and tasty - service was good - atmosphere was good. Woudl definetely recommend - and then to top it all off we left through the back door of the Front Door!

“Great burgers and good value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Conveniently located in the main shopping area of downtown Galway amidst all the action. Stopped in without a reservation on a Thursday night in July, got a great table in no time, had super friendly and efficient service. Menu has a great variety, something for every appetite. We ordered burgers--a beef burger and a lamb burger--generous and delicious; a good value too. Shared a brownie sundae for dessert--chocolate heaven! Overall, a great dining experience.

“Great place & well located”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This is a great restaurant. It is well located being just off Shop Street, Galway. The menu is wide and varied. We have eaten here quite a bit over the past while. The Fish Cake starter is great, but you would need to be hungry. It does a great Sheperds Pie and the Creamy Pasta dish is also brill. The Crème Brulee is just the best. The staff are attentive and pleasant. The prices are reasonable.

“Lamb Stew & Sheppard's Pie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Loved the lamb stew. Great service too. Place was busy and somewhat loud but that added to the atmosphere. Worth a stop.

“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

This place was a block off the main Galway road, or so it seemed.

The steak sandwich was out of this world and the service was wonderful.

Www really enjoyed the atmosphere, the food and the price.

Highly recommend this place.
