A gem in the centre of Galway that I never knew existed, the bottom floor is a very extensive deli and fine food area with restaurant upstairs. Lovely selection of snacks and full meals and very nicely presented, definitely worth a revisit

Hey :) We recently had a lunch at this very busy restaurant, I guess the location helps. The food was nothing special. I think a meal should always look better than the plate that carries it, it was not the case. We had a very sad lasagna as the ketchup offered kindly by the waiter never arrived to our son.... More

As it was freezing! Myself and my partner looked around for somewhere to get reasonable but good quality coffee. The waitress was very friendly and coffee was gorgeous even as take away! We will be back!

Had a really tasty lunch here recently and am already looking forward to going back. Very interesting menu with lots of different options. The food was very fresh, service quick and staff friendly. Also went downstairs to get a few bits from their deli - really nicely laid out with a great selection of luxury items that would really make... More

Had a beautiful breakfast of Portobello mushrooms on brown bread with avocado, topped with rocket and poached eggs. The coffee was also very good and well needed. Staff were lovely and attentive. The only downfall was the amount of dust on timber panelling and on the lovely mirror hanging on Shop Street walk side. A damp cloth wouldn't go a... More

Upscale grocery, nice restaurant, and excellent off-license whiskey selection. Great spot. We grabbed some various cheeses and veg salads, and dined on the street side tables. Worth stopping and shopping!

Sat out front after ordering sandwich upstairs. My wife and I enjoyed our food which was served quickly and efficiently. Great spot for people watching also. Can't be unwilling to share a table. Good value.

Decided to try McCambridges upstairs for a quick breakfast as I wanted to try somewhere different for once while in town early on a Saturday morning. I decided to just go for porridge and did'nt read all the blurb as I assumed it would be fairly straightforward. When I removed the cover plate from the dish I was more than... More
