Great spot, a little off the beaten track. Definitely recommend the duck. Staff were very friendly and suggested a lovely red to accompany the meal. Tremendous value for money. Galways best kept secret.

I visited this restaurant with two of my friends. We were served by a pretty chatty slim blond girl from cork .
She was so accommodating to us even though we all had tricky orders- we asked for sauce on the side, different things to be added to our meal and swapped around.
The waitress really seemed to know the menu back to front and could explain and recommend options. She also gave us loads of advice on what wine to get she was so chatty and polite.
The food is very good value and really good quality and the service was excellent.
Lunch time offers are excellent value.

Maybe we chose poorly- starter of chick pea was very dry and lacked taste - the main of bean curry was bland ..... I had goats cheese starter, was thrown on the table and was not very warm.

Descent steak for a main - for €10 on a deal - picked a nice wine also .

Would give it a miss if back in Galway.

I met my American visitors on their first trip to Ireland here for dinner. The food was lovely. 3 of us had prawns risotto and 1 steak. We shared 2 starters. Had beautiful bottle of New Zealand White wine. No room for dessert. I bring all my American relatives here and they rave about it. The place was completely full at 7:30 good news spreads.

We were very surprised at the brilliant value meal we had here. We ate from their value menu on a Thursday evening , three courses and a bottle of wine for 60 euro. Portions were big and a supplement of 4 euro for a steak was very reasonable for what we got.
The restaurant was buzzing at a 7 0, clock sitting and it wasn't difficult to figure out why. Staff are extremely efficient and friendly.
Go hungry and enjoy before they increase their prices . Food is great and we will be back next time we are in Galway.
