“Average food - poor service”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

I ate here with a few friends last night, it was only O.K. The service was poor, we had a complacent waitress who left us ages waiting to order. When the food came out it was poorly thought out, I had a salmon dish with HEAPS of boiled potatoes and very little else. Ach..not bad, just not great.

“Like eating in a playground ”
Reviewed May 11, 2014 via mobile

Had heard good things about the food here so called in one Sunday on my own for a full irish. Was really good! So good in fact that I went back during the week with my girlfriend and had lunch which was ok, had the ham sandwich and she had the chicken sandwich, not as nice as the breakfast but the atmosphere was still nice and relaxed.

Came back the next Sunday for the fry up again. Once more food was lovely best fry in galway. However there were loads of kids running around the place screaming and shouting and stamping up and down the little stairs at the back. One of the children seemed to be the daughter of the "DJ" ( tbh I don't really no Wat he was doing behind the desk as the music didn't change much after he left, a waste of money if he is being paid) and he let her run around with the rest, really looked bad for him to allow this and be associated with the pub!

Will be back again to give it one more go but if there are kids on the loose I think I will have to leave it.

I'm not a kid hater btw there was a family at the table opposite to us and the children were very well behaved as children should be when brought out to eat.

“Poor service, average food.”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Had a meal here recently with friends. We ordered steaks which I must say were quite small for the price. The staff weren't especially helpful. One of the group didn't get his meal. They just forgot and he had to go hungry. Won't be back.

“Everything you need.”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

Massimo does Breakfast, Lunch and dinner as well as the best beer. They have a resaturant called EAT. and it is fabulous. The food is all fresher than fresh and the service is incredible. And all at a reasonable price! For night life it's a great place to and socialise after hours with friends.

“Best meal in a long time”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Went here for lunch with a friend. Had the burger, it was amazing. So tasty and the ketchup was unreal. First time here but it will be my new regular.
