  • 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.
