The seafood here is always good and the service is always friendly :) But their fried mars bar is delicious! I am not a huge mars bar fan but they're batter is nice! Not too dense or thick! Just right! I would highly recommend this place!

I know this place is very famous in Galway for their good seafood, but my experience was to have undercooked fish and cold fries, I would say it's my personal experience.

This is a great chippie, making a name for itself among the other well-known fish n chips places in Galway. When a growing number of restaurants and food places in central Galway will give you the feeling of being ripped off, Kettle of fish remains a good bargain. The owner and staff are friendly, the food tastes great and if... More
