A truly lovely place to eat. The food was fantastic (I recommend the pork belly) and reasonably priced. Nice decor, and the staff were friendly and attentive but didn't hover over us. I'd definitely visit again.

We discovered this restaurant on a brief tour bus stop and we had my birthday lunch here. SO SPECIAL! Lovely people! CLEAN down to even detail. Artfully presented dishes. Each dish prepared fresh, so he apologized for the (very) little wait time to eat. And you won't believe this, but INEXPENSIVE. Modest: 26 euros for two lovely lunches. i wish... More

We went to Maxwell's for dinner on the spur of the moment. We were very pleasantly surprised. The food was quite good, the service excellent, and the prices moderate. We would not hesitate to return

A little weary of the hustle and bustle of Quay Street, we peaked in the window of Maxwells Restaurant as we walked toward Eyre Square. It was an island of calm with an elegant, relaxing atmosphere. Food and service were impeccable. Looking forward to having dinner there again on next visit to Galway.

My mother had the fish cakes which where just ok. Service was quite slow & they forgot our dessert order. Bright... More

We stopped in for a light lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The food was great and the service was better. Our waiter, Aldo, could not be more helpful. He gave suggestions of where to go and what to see while walking around Galway.

I had previously visited Maxwells with my parents and I had not one bad word to say about it but then I went back to Maxwells for breakfast the other morning with my boyfriend and was extremely disappointed with the service.

Hi Emma, I apologize sincerely that you have left with that opinion on us and that you felt treated that way on that morning by my staff. I can feel your frustration. From experience, given the day and other circumstances - breakfast at Maxwell's can be very busy, fast paced and a little stressful for all of the team but... More

Visited as a lunchtime party of four adults and two small children. Well looked after in a bright, friendly atmosphere. Good, wholesome food with good options for children. Good value. Friendly, efficient staff.
