“excellant view”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

nicest food and atmosphere in the county galway. I have been going for years and ive yet to get a nicer meal somewhere else.

The Great atmosphere and friendly staff all with great views of the bay outside opposite. The bar is warm and cosy. Great for a beer and light snack.

“Perfect”

Gorgeous food, great service - wine pricey, but a real treat. Best steak I've had in years - massive portions, great atmosphere, lovely location.

“Excellent restaurant, great views”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

We visited this restaurant and baron two occasions and were so happy we did.

Great atmosphere and friendly staff all with great views of the bay outside opposite. The bar is warm and cosy. Great for a beer and light snack.

The restaurant was equally excellent with a great menu. The duck was a standout meal to order, with the hazelnut torte for dessert.

Staff are professional and friendly.

Would make it a go to place on returning to kinvara.
