Arrived to an Pucán on a Saturday afternoon having been here before. Head bar man (Shane) leads the way to a great afternoon. But it's not just the banter the whole experience of being really well looked after, like we were someone special. Staff were...brilliant, non pushy but ever so attentive. Food was better than an average pub meal....had the pulled pork burger and was delicious. Highly recommended AnthonyMore

Visited during the Covid pandemic when only outdoor service was allowed - but was still a great experience. Because of limited availability and strict rules, we had to book in advance - but it was well worth while. No standing at the bar, only table...service - but in the end it made no difference. Place was full of Galway locals and assorted tourists, but with one thing in common - having a good time. Can't comment on the food menu as we were there for drinks only, but looking at our adjoining tables I think we made a mistake. Food looked top drawer. Fortunately the weather was good so many pints were drunk. Roll on indoor dining (and drinking).More

Booked in advance for lunch today with my husband, parents and 2 young kids. We were shown to our table thankfully under an awning !! The menu has a wide variety to choose from...our selection was a mini breakfast, cheese toasties, hot chicken blaa, and...kids meals....everything was lovely and all change requests were made for us which was great. The staff are truly excellent...nothing was too much trouble...I have to commend them all for being so cheerful when they much be absolutely roasting from the heat with the addition of wearing masks. I would highly recommend An Pucán.More

My three girlfriends and I went here and had the most amazing time. Food: incredibly delicious and not lacking in flavour whatsoever. Service: insane. The staff are on the ball! You will not go thirsty. We especially loved Karl with a K. He was so...helpful and up for the craic too. The cocktails are incredibly delicious and great care is taken in the preparation of each meal and drink. Menu caters to all! Great seafood and plant based options if you’re that way inclined. The beer garden is stunning. The tunes are BLARING but we can still hear each other talk and the vibes are IMMACULATE. This place is great for a group of mates or some girly drinks. Overall I’d rate our time here a fat 10 out of 10 and we will definitely be coming here again. Ask for Karl with a K. He’ll take great care of you. Pay rise for that man.More

I made a 9pm booking in advance, we then realised shortly before our booking that food stops at 9. We rang and the girl on the phone was amazing and allowed us to order in advance. Upon arrival we had excellent service, the staff were...very friendly and happy to help. We returned for lunch the following day with no booking and once again the staff were lovely and looked after us. The food was delicious and quick! Would recommendMore

A group of friends and I visited over the weekend and had an excellent experience, the food was delicious and the drinks were superb! There was a great atmosphere and it was the perfect place for outdoor dining. The service by all the staff was...absolutely fantastic and definitely have to mention Dave and Eimear who were serving us, they were so friendly and helpful! We cannot wait to visit again soon ☺️More
