We arrived late afternoon and walked around the boardwalk for a bit. By chance we went into the Galleon and were seated right away, even though the restaurant was very busy (it was a Sunday)
Several specials were offered, I chose appetizer and main and my husband ordered main and dessert. All courses were delivered in a timely manner and the food was still hot. Serving staff were very pleasant and always courteous. A very enjoyable meal.

we have visited this place a few times now for both breakfast and dinner, and i can not say a bad word about the place, the menu is very good and so is the food when you get it, the staff are very friendly and efficient, there was a bit of a queue when we got there in the evening but they got through it quite quickly and they were very good with the child even getting her meal first as she was hungry and had been waiting, and little things like that go a long way, all i can say is keep up the good work as we will definitely be back when we visit salthill again.

While visiting Galway recently we visited this restaurant which is right in the heart of Salthill on the out skirts of Galway City. Our B & B recommended we eat here. We were shocked to discover that even though it was a Monday evening the restaurant was full to the brim and the que for tables was right out onto the street. However we received a lovely welcome and an assurance we would not be waiting long. We finally reached the top of the que and the same manager was there to greet us again. She joked around with the kids and the conversation was easy going and warm. We had a lovely meal and the kids were treated to chocolate coins which they loved. The serving staff was so friendly and warm and made us feel quite special. While we were leaving the manager cheerfully thanked us for calling and said they looked forward to seeing us again....Great food, amazing service and a warm welcome....we will be back.

I have not been to The Galleon for a few years. It was always very good, and you could depend on good regular food. It has not changed. Recently we arrived late, having just driven from Dublin just before 10pm and they very kindly fitted us in. My husband had a great seafood salad and I had chicken Maryland with bacon, pineapple etc. I was not able to finish all the chips. Staff were very helpful and friendly and the place is spotless. You can partly see into the kitchen, always a good sign. You can usually get parking behind the Church. This place is also great for children and it is a relaxed family restaurant.
