Went to this restaurant some days ago with my husband for a romantic meal before drinks. We did not have a reservation but were seated non-the-less. Contrary to previous reviews, we found the staff there to be very polite and friendly right from the start. The restaurant itself is very cosy with candles lit in every corner and on tables, really sets the ambiance. We ordered the two course special for 20E each and the E16 bottle of house wine. We were not disappointed. We ordered the fish cakes and galway bay mussels for starters which was delicious, very well prepared and presented. For main courses we had the salmon and lamb shanks, both of which were particularly tasty. The French Savignon Blanc was okay, but for the price I certainly was not complaining. The nicest touch I saw was outside (where we went to finish our wine) where there were fleece blankets folded on each chair for use if you felt cold. A very lovely gesture I felt. Overall well done Gemelles! We most certainly will be back and thank you for a lovely evening.
One last thing - I noticed a sign informing customers that each of the staff dedicate a precentage of their tips to "CROI" - a local area critical care organisation. Furthermore no service charges are applied and this I feel really is worth mentioning. WELL DONE AGAIN!
