“good food, quick service but a bit cramped”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

who would have thought that we'd be in the middle of Galway eating pizza and Mexican food! the food was really good with large portions and quick service. the place is really busy and you may have to wait as i don't think they take reservations.

“Thank you”

So friendly, bit of a wait but well worth it. Don't go over the road, honestly, she will eat you alive, In here they just laugh when you ask a stupid question about Italian food!

“Great mexican food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

I'm a huge tex mex fan and so wherever I go I try to find the mexican place. I have to say I wasn't deceived at all! Great mexican food. I had cajun chicken quesadillas and I have to say I loved it! Very fast service, staff maybe running a litlle too much around but all in all friendly and efficient.

“Good pizza but staff all over the place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

Always go here when in Galway and was highly disappointed at my most recent visit! Pizza is normally to die for but lacked that wow factor this time, the pizza was very doughy! Normally the pizza is lively and thin and the crusts are crispy! I would never rate the service here but it was especially poor last night!! Waited ages to order and in the end had to ask could we order. Our starters came promptly and were delicious! And then we waited 40 minutes for our pizza. We won't be hurrying back here!!
