“A hidden gem with authentic Spanish cooking”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

Although Lunares is tucked away on Daly's Place a bit off away from the main tourist street in Galway, its colourful doorway is easy to recognise and upstairs it s welcoming, bright and colourful.The food is great, rich Mediterranean flavours.We over-ordered as the portions are very generous

“Spain in the heart of Galway.”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

A brilliant dinner to follow from Sheridan's wine and cheese bar! Five tapas, a jug of sangria and creme brûlée for four worked out to €80. The portions are generous and it's clear that the staff care about the food they serve and the customers they are serving. A great meal in a fantastic city! You've got to check this place out.

“Great Tapas”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Great atmosphere, very tasty food and nice service.

There was World Cup Spain vs. Netherlands game on screen that evening so the place was packed - so it was quite loud inside - even thou it was great place to meet with friends.
It was a bit hot inside.

“Really good, authentic Spanish tapas.”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Good food selection, lovely staff with prompt service and generous portion sizes for tapas. The decor is bright and cheerful with comfortable seating. Lunares is a little hidden gem that seems well known to the locals away from the hustle and bustle of the main square.

“My favourite restaurant in Galway”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

This is my favourite restaurant in Galway. Don't let the decor fool you this is authentic Spanish food. We've been here many times, all great nights. To that person who didn't have a great experience I would recommend you risk trying it one more time. Service is always good with friendly staff. Decent portions, staff can help recommend how much to order, since it's tapas you can always order more. Prices are really reasonable. I just love it
