“Lovely fresh food and amazing service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Cactus Jacks is a little pricey, but the food is very tasty and fresh (amazing guacamole). Our waitress was so friendly, offering advice on other great pubs and things to do in Galway. What a great credit good staff can be to a restaurant!

“Great food, service fine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

We really enjoyed our evening here. We shared the enchiladas and chicken wings, which was nice. We ordered steak/chicken fajitas between two, it was really tasty and filling, my two other friends ordered seafood paella, which they thoroughly enjoyed. Unfortunately we didn't order desserts, as great as the choice was, as we simply couldn't fit them in. We thoroughly enjoyed the wine, can't remember the name. The service was efficient, and restaurant was rockin for a weekend in January, it is Galway, so no surprises.

“Tapas Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Short stay in Galway for my wife and I and we had to return to Jacks. Looking it up before hand we saw that they had a new Tapas menu since the last time we were there. Sat night 8pm booking and the place was hopping. Good buzz in it. Seated on arrival, no waiting around so happy days. Picked our first 4 options off the Tapas and we were in heaven after that. Breaded mussels, Garlic prawns, Calamari rings and Chicken wings. All stunning. Looked at the menu and picked 4 more then. Chilli cheese nachos, cactus Jackets, barbeque spare ribs and Meatballs in a tomato sauce. All fabulous. Bottle of house white and all came to a bargin basement price of €69. Where would you get it. We didn't have enough room for desert even. There actually is value for money out there and we definately got it here in Cactus Jacks Galway. Top marks.
