We of us called in for supper on a week night. The food was fine...typical bar food and a pretty good price. Staff were friendly too. But I wasn't impressed with how clean or tidy the place was. There were dirty tables and I felt they could do a lot better in the bathrooms. It was fine but I'm not... More

Heard so much about this place since its refurbishment so visited it recently for lunch but was quite disappointed. The female waitress was ever so helpful despite the fact she was waiting on tables, cleaning and even sweeping the floor. Had the soup to start but not great. The menu had a number of choices and we both went for... More

The waitress was so lovely and really welcoming , having not been back to Galway for over a year she not only remembered us , but... More

Rack of lamb on the menu...They serve lamb cutlets for around €19.00 and if you notice it :D they pretend that they ran out of the rack of lamb. The first time (~8 months ago) we said nothing but when it happened again... If you are in Claregalway go to The Abbey Restaurant. Nice food and decent prices.

Called in for a break and coffee and snack but had a great meal instead, beef was melt in the mouth. Meal was served promptly and good service. Vegetables, served separately, were a little under cooked but I would rather that than over cooked! Mashed potato was excellent.

Stumbled in to Arches not realizing it was still breakky. I thought maybe they'd do a coffee and sweet treat. Anyhoo.. I ended up eating breakky, I paid €6.50 for all you can eat. Coffee was good, food the standard Irish breakfast-pretty good and hot and I also had a pastry. Staff were very friendly, good customer service and efficient.... More
