Yes the Galleon is traditional, it's family orientated, it's middle of the road food but it's done well, it's consistent, there is ALWAYS great service, it's always busy, and it always delivers.

In our view it's the best family dinner (FULL STOP)

The Galleon is great for breakfast and would recommend it for breakfast but not for an evening meal. It still seems to draw in the crowds from Salthill alot of customers would be of the older generation and the food they serve is from that era. If you want roast beef with mash potato and veg this is the place to go...

When myself and my parents ate here we had about half and hour to spare for dinner before seeing a show. Luckily, even though the restaurant was packed we managed to be seated, fed, and checked out right on time. The food was good, not vividly memorable, but good enough for the price offered, which was reasonable. I would go back.

My husband and I were visiting from the US. Chose this restaurant because we wanted something a little more casual. I had the spinach and ricotta tortellini. He had the chicken curry. Both were very well prepared. Definitely recommend this to anyone wanting good food for a good value.
