Nice ambiance and excellent food. Menu offers a great variety for all types of diets( i.e. Vegan/allergies). Convenient location right off the pedestrian area of Galway makes it a fun/easy meal.

In Ireland on a tour and found this gem. Mussels were divine. Lamb stew was delicious. In both dishes, the seasonings were the star. Great menu and staff. We waited until they opened. Great place!
