My Husband & I ate here on a Friday night about a couple of weeks ago.
We opted for the 3 course meal with bottle of house wine it was excellent value at €60.
My Husband had fish cakes for starter followed by the duck confit with strips of pork belly.
I had the chick pea cakes, followed by the Hake . I have eaten in a lot of restaurants and the Hake was definitely the best ever.
All our food was delicious , very well presented.
The restaurant was buzzing with a great atmosphere, there were not many empty tables.
We had coffees to finish off .
We will certainly be back , really enjoyed our meal.

This is a beautiful restaurant with great food and a beautiful atmosphere. Everything on the menu sounds and looks beautiful and anything we had was simply wonderful. Personally it's a place for a couple given the atmosphere. It's also a bit pricey so I don't think it would be suited to a family meal. Great staff.

Why is Friday to Sunday so revered. Somebody somewhere decided that these were the weekend nights and so should be very special nights. Vina Mara have bucked that trend. They've decided that Monday to Wednesday are the special nights of the week and boy are they very very special nights. This is the deal. Vina Mara offer every main course on these night for €10. I agree, there has to be a catch. I mean, €10, in a gorgeous restaurant in the centre of Galway...surely there's a catch. Well, there is. But the catch is more likely to be the fresh fish catch of the day. Dress up in your best clothes. Take a taxi. Order some wine. You are about to experience some of the best value in fantastic food so you might as well celebrate. I genuinely thought that there would be a €10 "special" list of main courses but a separate a la carte list that had lots of supplements. In Vina Mara, from Monday to Wednesday, every...and I mean every, main course is only €10. We had steak, prawns, slow cooked lamb, hake.....all for €10. Full portions, fantastic food and excellent service. I have a plan. I hope to eat out every weekend for the summer. Every weekend that includes a Tuesday and every weekend that includes the €10 Vina Mara menu. Go quickly. At these prices the things have got to change. Let me be the first to say it. These prices are too cheap but I for one plan to take advantage of the best of Irish food, the best of Irish service and stunning prices. Get there quick and enjoy!!
