We decided to have lunch here as they do not take dinner reservations and were not disappointed with food, service or decor! Staff was carrying in fresh supplies for dinner service; always a good sign of fresh, local food. Preparation was beautiful.

The menu is not extensive at this well-positioned restaurant, which is located in the thick of the action down the Spanish Arch.
The service was good to say there seemed short-staffed and the food is reasonably priced.
There is also a specials board.
Would definitely go back when in Galway and the seating outside is welcome on a nice evening and blankets are provided should it drop chilly

Had a meal here with my husband, the food and the service was excellent. It was very busy for a Wednesday night but the staff were so friendly, relaxed and we were not rushed in any way. Food was top class I had the special of the day Sea Bass it was cooked to perfection, and presentation was terrific served with potatoes. My husband had Lamb Shank it was also cooked and presented beautiful, he also had skinny chips- delicious. Lovely wine and beers too. Keep up the good work and Galway people and visitors will be flocking to your door. It is great to see a restaurant that has pleasant staff who are attentive, with delicious food as well-- a winning combination.

This little place has only 30 covers and is very popular - they won't take reservations, so if they are full they take your mobile number and call you as soon as a table is free. Food is excellent quality and although not "bar-meal" cheap it is not overpriced compared to many top-end places in Galway centre. Restricted menu but with good veggie, vegan and gluten-free options. Cheerful and attentive service.

Enjoyed a lovely meal here with my mum & 3 sisters on a recent trip to Galway, we certainly weren't disappointed!
Food quality & presentation was fab, an extremely busy eatery however the staff couldn't do enough to ensure everyone enjoyed their evening.
Will be sure to return on my next trip to Galway, thanks for a great evening of food & atmosphere
