“Little Gem in Salthill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Lovely little tapas bar in Salthill. Great food and fabulous selection of wines. The ambience is warm and welcoming and there is great jazz mid week too. Dont know how they cram so much goodness into one little place. The coffee is also the best in Galway! Well done to Daniele and his team.

“Good atmosphere and ok food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Nice restaurant with good atmosphere. Quite limited tapas menu, however steak was excellent. Fish wasn't very fresh and portions with fish could have been better. Would go again in the future. But it was a bit expensive.

“awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Ate here again Saturday night and the food was greasy & cold and the place itself was very cold. Had to wear my coat when eating. We mentioned to waitress that scallops weren't cooked and were cold and she offered to heat them up. Felt ill after already eating one half raw so just asked her to take it away. We were shocked to be billed for them! It was terrible and will not return. Will pay any amount for good food but this was poor and overpriced!

“Great food, great atmostphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Dropped in here for a late lunch on a very wet sunday afternoon. Lovely menu, great selection of tapa's and main courses, wine by the glass or bottle (very reasonable prices too!). Food was very well presented and tasted great. Wine was perfect temperature and at only €5 a glass, well worth it. Desserts were lovely followed by a properly made espresso! Staff were not obtrusive, didnt rush you and were available when needed with a friendly face. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone in the area looking for a good place to eat. Will definitely be going there again.
