Went in to The Galleon on spec and had a lovely meal. I had a chicken curry and my friend had one of the specials, salmon which was quite a big portion and she commented that it was piping hot unlike other restaurants where some food is not always as hot as it should be. We shared a dessert which was fab. Service was very quick and efficient, and extremely courteous without being in your face. Toilets were top class, spotlessly clean and fresh smelling. Some restaurants in Galway seem to forget toilets leave nearly as big an impression on customers as the food. Definitely worth a return visit.

Real Family restaurant - no issue with highchairs, babybowls etc.. Same host & staff as last year - professional, warm and friendly. Menu extensive to suit all budgets. Would recommend a visit!

We came here recently for dinner. For that unplanned evening it was perfect. While the portions are a little small , the prices are superb. I had the steak while my companion had the Chicken Maryland. All was cooked to perfection. The staff are all very attentive but quiet and do not engage. But overall good value ...

If you want to experience what it was like to dine in Ireland in the heady days of the 80's, look no further than the Galleon. I can understand how this place works for some people as the old Irish adage goes "You wont leave hungry" and you wont. But you wont taste much either.

The Galway food scene has changed irrevocably and for the better in the last 10 years, but to see just how far we have come then take a step back in time and visit the Galleon.
