“Forget what I ate here, but it was delicious!”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

I joined to review a different restaurant but this was suggested to me for review as it's in my area. The food is very well prepared - fresh and tasty. The portions are also pretty large by Irish standards, I would say and I know I couldn't finish my meal.

There are cheaper options in the same area but the standard of what they make there is unmatched so you definitely get what you pay for.

“Great cakes!”
Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

Absolute hidden gem here! Didn't even know it existed but so glad that we found it. The sweets here are divine as well as the savoury lunch. Hard to get a seat during busy season but whenever the family are out that way we definitely stop by.

“favourite cafe in galway”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This cafe is well worth the spin. The food is fabulous. Highly recommend the pizzas and their flat white coffees are second to none.there is usually a queue but it is worth the wait.The staff appear to be all native Irish speakers. A lovely atmosphere with a beautiful beach just across the road. I keep going back there and have yet to be disappointed.
