“A very overrated dirty high street pizza joint with robot staff!”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

My family & I ( 2 adults & 3 children) came to Galway for the may bank holiday weekend and we have just come out of Fat Freddie's! Glasses had to be sent back as they were filthy, replaced with dirty ones!! Food very poor & very overpriced!! Pizzas very bland, soft drinks served in cans which we're Luke warm! Made a huge mistake of ordering a Cajun salad with honey mustard dressing .... It arrived not resembling anything like Cajun but a plain salad with a vile buttery dressing with boiled fatty bland chicken about the quantity of a very small fillet !!! I could only force a few forkfuls. We were never asked once ' was everything ok' not even upon collection of 3/4 cull plates and also when paying a fairly hefty bill for a very poor and substandard meal!! Will definitely not return - my advice would be to venture down the side streets before throwing your hard earned cash away !!

Laid back Ambiance with really friendly staff. The portion sizes were huge which means its great if your really hungry or have a hungry man to feed. Food tastes great aswell and theres plenty of options to choose from.

The food was awesome and there were so many choices. I would definitely recommend it once you get tired of the typical Irish menu!
