Brunch was delicious and a great dining atmosphere! Located right on the water and great to pop in the Galway history museum across the street before or after.

Had dinner here last week with six other friends. Great atmosphere, wine and amazing food. Started with the pork cheek to start and followed it with a rib eye steak. Flavor with food was amazing. Others in the party started with the soup and mussels - nothing but empty bowls. Same can be said with the hake and monkfish mains.... More

The restaurant is set in a lovely building from the outside, average on the inside. The menu is extensive at the mid to high end of the pricing spectrum. The quality of the food and presentation is very high. All courses well catered for and lots of choice. Everyone in our party of ten were very happy with everything.

3 of us had Sunday Lunch and were sent home smiling! The Sunday roast was like mother used to make it only better due to the air dried beef. Melt in the mouth tender!. The accompanying malbec was the perfect match. The lady in our company chose a vegetarian option which also received top marks. Looking forward to the next... More

Our second visit to this excellent eating place. The food here is absolutely scrumptious in a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. The place was full when we arrived but an attentive staff member rushed over and invited us to the staff area to wait and informed us a table would be free within a couple of minutes. True to his...
