Arrived on a busy Saturday evening but were seated within 15 minutes, just had time to start our drinks at the bar.
Food was good and a real Italian feel to the food.

We have been here on many occasions and the food is always good. However, whilst there are numerous plates that are very good value in terms of pastas and pizzas the wine list is limited and expensive. It is a pity that they don't have a house wine at a more realistic price considering the price of some of their dishes. But the food is very good and there is something for everybody

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to review our business.

We are very happy that you are a Regular costumer and enjoy our food experience.

Regarding our wine list price, we believe that is in line with all other Great restaurants in Galway City and we always try to balance quality & price , we won’t go down the roads of buying cheaper wines as we prefer to buy Great Wines from small producers that they really care about what they do .

Kind Regards

Dinner and wine were lovely in the rock walled bar. The staff in both the bnb and restaurant were all excellent-friendly, accommodating and very helpful with recommendations. Highly recommended! Worth the quick drive to Oranmore from Galway.

Nice location, great food and real Italian receipts. Pasta were perfect, pizza was amazingly good (rare thing in Ireland, where we experienced weird combination as quatro formaggi pizza with garlic :))
Friendly staff, really nice place to go for a dinner. I am pretty sure we were lucky to find a table without reservation but we went there at around 6 pm.

Yummy early dinner - calamari, caprice salad, burger & pizza washed down with fab gin & tonic! Waiter went out of his way to get us a table outside. There was a great buzz even though it was only a Tuesday evening.
