          I saw your post about the arches , I have just written a review myself a lot like yours , was in there this week terrible service and terrible food, have been going for years here on rout to Galway but sadly in the last two years it's gone down hill and there are so many nicer places to eat in Galway let's hope the management take notice .

          Maybe they will but I still think it's a handy place for a quick stop. Don't know about larger groups though?
