“Simply divine!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

Having heard about 37 West from quite a few of friends, I made my first trip to today and was not disappointed. The restaurant is committed to making simple and wholesome food interesting and quirky (though for the committed carnivores out there, there is a burger on the menu). Not an easy feat but 37 West proves that eating good food does not have to be a penance. I ordered the seafood chowder and am usually disappointed by the sheer lack of seafood and plethora of spuds....not this one!! It was a hearty meal in a bowl served with a really tasty brown bread. Yum!! I'll definitely be sampling this again. I finished off with one of their delicious cupcakes. This is how ALL cupcakes should taste; moist and with lashings and lashings of mint flavoured icing (which Gill the owner told me was dairy free). There is clearly so much thought gone into this restaurant from the decor, menu selection, reasonable pricing, welcoming staff and bright and friendly ambience and this is what makes it really special. Aside from this, I just love food that is prepared with love. And that is in abundance in this lovely new restaurant. Well done to the whole team. Can't wait to come back for my next visit.

“Such a welcome addition to Galway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

Really impressed with this place...the food is delicious. Have had the superfood salad everytime - it is so impressive. Salads can often just be a plate of lettuce, but this one is packed with goodness and very substantial.

Love the emphasis on health - really appealing.

One complaint - I was dining outside with a friend and the lady beside us was smoking - really turned my stomach. I would have had coffee, but left after that. If the emphasis is on health, then this shouldn't be accommodated (imo!).

Otherwise, really like this place!

Hi
Thanks for writing!! We are all in LOVE in with the superfood salad!!! It Galway's latest addiction !!
Sorry about the smoker , the covered seating area is non smoking and small section in the garden is smoking area. A staff member should have informed you. Sorry about this!
Thanks again and remember healthy is the new sexy!

“I hate Salads!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

I don't eat salads; I hate salads; they're boring, tasteless, unsatisfying. This place has changed everything for me and my relationship with salads! Who knew that they could be so good! You have to try the superfood salad and the muscle builder salad. Both are full of flavour and satisfying - not something I ever associated before with an assortment of leaves!
There's a lot more to 37 West though. Great more substantial dishes (the grilled lamb and the grilled chicken on a skewer are gorgeous), excellent service and a permanent warm welcome from the owner, manager and staff.
I'm a regular now and I've suggested that my wife should start paying rent as she's there so often!

Please don't mention the Lamb Salad! We are not allowed! too many people were gutted it sold out in hours!!!!! I am begging the chef to do it again!
IT was AMAZING !
All I got was the sauce but it made a great dressing for my chicken salad!
We went blue in the face last week trying to come up with new ideas for salads! This hot weather was so unexpected! Next year we will be on the ball!
Thanks again!
