  • Purchases are important in Ireland, in all cities there are these streets with lots of shops and restaurants. Galway is nice, walking visit and this is its main street, young and joyful atmosphere, many musicians on the street.

  • A fantastic cosy spot in the heart of Galway's hustle and bustle. Staff were lovely and food was fantastic. Prices were attractive in comparison to neighbouring eateries. Highly recommended
  • Excellent excellent food. Small, quaint space, so you may have to wait for a table. They don't take reservations over the phone, you have to put your name down at the door and they'll calm you when a table is free. Excellent service and excellent food.
  • We absolutely love this place. We only spent three days in Galway including day trips elsewhere and we still ate here every day. Eating anywhere else felt like a waste of a meal since the food here is just that good. We love the cozy atmosphere inside and outside. The service is also top notch. 5 stars!
  • Nice atmosphere. Food was good. I would recommend it is also on the main road.
  • Very decent, although I was surprised how expensive one can of Diet Coke was (€2.25) Also the bathroom is very small. I don't recommended it.
