I had heard great things about this restaurant but was very disappointed, We arrived on Saturday night and got a table without reservation, We had to ask for our coats to be taken had to ask for water twice, I ordered the rib eye steak which was so fatty I couldnt eat it when I mentioned this to the waitress she said that was to be expected with rib eye but she would pass my comments on to the chef, other diners sitting at tables nearby seemed to be eating much nicer steaks than mine, I really feel that I got a dud but found the waitresses reaction very condescending
I would not eat here again and with so many restaurants to choose from in Galway I would not reccommend it

My husband and I were fortunate enough to have lunch here on our last day in Galway. We both had excellent meals and were sorry we didn't try it for dinner the night before. The restaurant is tucked back off the main drag so it was quiet and peaceful, just what we needed after a morning of walking all over the city and some shopping. I had the cheese tart and was quite content while the husband was very pleased with the fish and chips. I didn't think the prices were too outrageous although we were there for lunch so I can't speak to the value for dinner. What I can say is to definitely give this restaurant a try. Our experience was very nice - pleasant staff, not overly in your face, good food, pleasant atmosphere. We'd go back for sure.

While there was a lot good about our meal here it was let down by a very mediocre steak main course. The meat was tough,overdone and just not very enjoyable. My partner's fish main course was declared good so I suppose you win some and you lose some...

Delightful dining experience!! Randomly went there with a friend one night. First off the hearty menu drew me in,very versatile with daily specials, also I was happy to see that some of the dishes could be made to order gluten free and knowing that everything was locally sourced made it even better. I had the Rib-eye steak which was delicious followed by the warm chocolate fondant ....lets just say ..YUMMY!!!!! Staff were very pleasant and the service was excellent making the whole experience memorable...Cant wait for my next visit to the Malt House:))))

The evening menu has 2 courses for €24, this includes Rib-eye steak and homemade chips & veg. The best steak I have had in a long time. Wine well priced. Service excellent. I will be back soon :)
