Our coffee already has a reputation.....We will be looking after you all day, with substantial breakfast, lunch and dinner menus.The setting is informal with local stone and splashes of colour; Burren and south Galway, blended with funky london, has a relaxed cosy, curl up feel, with windows looking out over the Kinvara bay - colour and comfort, space for reading chatting, meeting up or getting way from it all.

Best coffee in town...Had a lovely brunch in the Gentian last week. Food was hot and tasty. Nice presentation and served with a smile.

We visited the Gentian for lunch last week. The atmosphere was nice and chilled for lunch time. I had the homemade soup of the day which was excellent value for a very generous portion of tasty soup and a side of homemade soda bread. My friend had the quiche and was very satisfied with this. Service was quick and the staff were friendly and very accommodating. It had a very nice atmosphere and the staff were very helpful.I will definitely be back to try out the dinner menu.

have visited for lunch in recent past eg; BLT & coffee and very good
tried for dinner menu tonight sept 7th 2012 & very poor indeed
- no house wine even though on the wine list - no salmon per menu - no apple crumble per menu- no attempt to make any ammends for items not being on menu - very amateur operation
very poor all round and won't make it as evening dining location and certainly won't recommend to friends / family
