We dined here on the hottest day of the Summer so far. We ate at one of the lovely tables outside the restaurant this meant we had a great view of the Corrib and the myriad of street performers who were in the city of the Tribes for the annual Arts Festival. The lunch menu was quite varied and there... More

I visited here during the week of my trip and enjoyed it. I had the breakfast . My only complaint was the bacon was very fatty. Apart from that it was a pleasent experience. This place was very busy so I'd imagine you might need to book before you go at the peak times.

I never got a hug from a waitress before but during our meal the whole place erupted into celebration and everyone started to celebrate Galway winning a prize . I have never enjoyed a tea and scone so much. What a lovely place and staff. Will alway remember it😍

I went to the kitchen last week and it was a fantastic experience. I was recommended to come here by my friends and I'm now wishing I came sooner! We were greeted by very friendly and attentive staff who made our meal a very enjoyable experience. The food is fantastic, so many vegetarian options too which me and my friends... More

The Kitchen clearly sets its sights on providing something different to ordinary Irish cafe fare and succeeds very well. If you are looking for excellent food, freshly prepared using local ingredients in the very centre of Galway this should be high on your list.

I absolutely adored my experience here! The breakfast was delicious (they have GF bread), the staff was extremely attentive, and service was very quick. I wish I had had another opportunity to come back!

Had a delicious and healthy breakfast, was directed here by the staff when we went to Ard Bia and they weren't serving breakfast as we wanted a proper feed and all they were doing was coffee and cake; and were so happy we ended up here! Had the vegan wrap which was amazing- fresh, healthy, so flavourful. Staff were lovely... More

I stumbled into The Kitchen after a long walk around the city. It offered a lovely lunch menu and a fair priced pot of tea. It was very crowded, but the staff kept up. I would highly recommend this venue for a quick lunch with friends.

I've visited the 'Kitchen' several times and have never once been disappointed. The staff are really friendly and genuine and the restaurant layout is bright and open. The food is always delicious with plenty of choices on offer to suit any dietary need. Easily the best vegetarian/vegan dishes I've had in any restaurant!

Thank Bronwyn Y

Great Food in The Galway City Museum, overlooking the Spanish Arch. The Kitchen serves exciting fusion cuisine using local produce and great Irish fish and meat. Vegetarians are well catered for, Gluten Free options are always available ( our Chocolate Brownies are AWESOME!!! even if we say so ourselves!). Open for extra special night-time dining from 6pm from Thursday - Saturday... great, vibrant, taste-tingling food, all prepared in house with love & passion by THE KITCHEN team.
