This was a lovely lunch, with friendly service, though quite expensive under the circumstances (recession, so many early bird/dinner deals available everywhere). I'd recommend ordering hot food only as the cold food is just a lesson on laying out cold seafood on a plate with some lettuce. The clams were delicious, though small in portion. The chowder was nice, not amazing. Oysters were delicious. Seafood platter was a little disappointing for the cost, especially as half the "platter" was taken up by two micre-wafer thin slices of smoked salmon laid across the plate.

Have had a few meals here over the past few years and it hasn't let me or my guests down! Good seafood and a fairly large menu to choose from. Lovely setting especially on a fine day.

This is a great haunt on a summers day, relax outside with a cold drink and delicious plate of food or take shelter indoors and you will not be disappointed.

Went on a recommend from a conversation with a local in a high street bar in Galway.
If you don't know about this place you never will, it's a hidden gem.

Anything on the menu is great, a little pricy but with top food, chilled wine and a glass of Guinness lookin out over the river in the sunshine this is heaven.
Met a lovely couple Ronan and Lisa from Dublin a couple of real foodies who walked 40mins from the main road just to get there....yes it's that good,
Hope to meet them again sometime on a return trip......we will be back.
