Having stayed 2 nights in Galway our meal in The Galleon was by far the nicest of our stay. We both opted for steaks and they were cooked to our liking, the deserts were also delicious, the staff were super friendly and were so kind to our little boy. We would highly recommend this restaurant

Really enjoyed the food, the staff are so friendly and accommodating. The only reason I'm not giving full stars is because they don't have a great choice for vegetarians so my mum found it hard to order something but she went with the veggie breakfast and was satisfied. Really great selection on menu of different types of meals. Highly recommend... More

The line out the door means 2 things- long wait & good food. But it was worth the wait. Every dish was hot, fresh & tasty. Several of us got the roast chicken which was moist & tasty. Starters were of good portion & arrived quickly. All the servers were quite pleasant despite the crowd. Prices are very reasonable. The... More

Went here because O'Connors was closed. Great choice. This place was packed with repeat, local customers. The food was so good. We had the lamb, classic burger, and salmon - everything perfect. Dessert was the same. Service was also exceptional. kids are welcome.

Good honest food is what is on offer here. Nothing is left to chance here with a scrumptious menu available for ever member of your group. Apart from myself, actor Martin Sheen said it was one of his fave restaurants while he studied on an Arts degree program at the university in Galway and lived locally in Salthill. In fact... More

We ate in Galleon on a trip to salthill. We started with a creamy hearty seafood chowder, followed by two tasty fillet steaks. We squeezed a shared dessert (Nutella cheesecake) afterwards. This fabulous meal was accompanied by reasonably priced refreshing white wine. The service was prompt and very friendly. I enjoyed the laid back family friendly atmosphere. We'll definitely be...

Traditional menu. The food is not gourmet but this place has stood the test of time and has been in business for a long time. Friendly service and a good range of options. It's like a diner in many ways.
