I had my stag night meal here during the galway races this August. We had an excellent meal here and were very well looked after. We had the set menu for 2 sharing a bottle of wine for 10 of us. The service was top drawer and they were very accommodating keeping a main dish warm for a late guest. Couldn't fault food or service, can confidently recommend!

Ate here recently with a group of friends and really enjoyed the meal. The menu had some great choices and the Specials were really different. Ordered the Wild Venison and it was delicious. Sampled some of the other main courses and none of them disappointed. Very good offers available also. Only thing that I wasn't mad about was the Frozen Cocktail for dessert - found that it had way too much sugar so couldn't really eat it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Portions are plenty big enough also.

Was in town for a couple of days and we went there TWICE! Sirloin Steak was excellent. So was the Tiger Prawn Spaghetti. 2-Course Set Meal for 20 Euros before 7pm (w extras for certain main courses) is good value for $$$. Will go back again if I'm back in town.

We often dine in Vina Mara and have sampled their lunch and evening menus. We like it because it is a proper restaurant which is friendly and down to earth but consistent and professional. Food is presented to a very high standard with generous portions. Some starters are particularly filling and could easily pass as main courses. Wine is served by the glass, carafe and bottle and there is a good choice with sensible prices. With Milano, Cava and Da Tang within immediate proximity Vina Mara compares very favourably on price in general with some very good deals at lunchtime in particular. Service is attentive, with a warm welcome for return diners.

While the food was very good...even though the duck portion was on the small side...the people watching was lots of fun. Considering how busy they were the service was very good.
