Decided on a whim to try this spot and we’re very glad we did! All of the servers were very friendly and the food was fresh, tasty and good value. A great place for lunch and so central.

Maxwells is my go-to breakfast spot when in Galway. They do a great veggie breakfast, the restaurant is comfortable and staff are friendly. Definitely worth a visit.
