Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Myself and my wife went to Apoema for our anniversary. The service was a bit slow but that was understandable for the food we ordered. The dinner and dessert were excellent and the staff were very nice and welcoming. I would definitely recommend trying this...place if you're in Galway!More

The place used to be a 5/5 all star for myself and my companion but a recent-enough change of management has ruined it for us. The previous chef, and his wife, were incredible people, always smiling and happy to chat. Fantastic drinks (divine aperitifs and...little cocktails, Sangria, meat cooked to perfection), but the quality of pretty much everything has fallen to mediocre. I wouldn't recommend the place anymore, with the amount of options for food in Galway.More

Had been looking forward to visiting this restaurant and it didn't disappoint! Everything tasted so fresh and delicious. Loved the fish stew ..my partner had lamb shank which was thoroughly enjoyed too. Service was excellent, very attentive without being intrusive. Would highly recommend!!

Visited this place because some friends claimed it was the best feijoada they have eaten when they were in Galway last spring. Well, if it was then no longer is. The beans were watery, some of the meat was bland, other too salty, sloppy presentation...and an overall less than stellar experience. And it was a weeked lunch, in a town with a big community like Galway it was expected for the place to be packed... instead it was just so so.More

It was a very tasty feijoada. We came in for lunch and we were greeted with the typical Brazilian friendliness. We enjoyed our meal with the Brazil flare and Brazilian music in the background . We had the chance to look at the full menu...and it seems all options are great. A definite return. Grande abraço desta família portuguesa 😊More

Rodrigo had amazing service. Always available and ready to help us when we needed it. The food was amazing Alex the chef did a fantastic job. I had the pork belly and risotto and it was delicious, the pork belly was tender and melted in...my mouth. My friend had the lamb and it slid right off the bone. Amazing experience would absolutely go back againMore
