I was a bit disappointed with the food. Whilst my husband had a nice vegetarian burger I had a tagine which lacked flavour and tasted more like a vegetable stew. Staff were friendly and the service was good.

We stopped in here for lunch and decided on ordering starters as opposed to 2 mains, it did not disappoint, wow!! Beef and Mushroom Bruschetta, Falafel plate, Calamari and fries, presentation and taste was super, our server Shannon was really friendly and great at her...job, will definitely return to this little Gem when visiting Galway again! 😊More

My husband and I stopped in here for a quick lunch on a busy Sunday in Galway. We were met by a friendly Australian chap at the door who showed us to our table (covid friendly distancing observed). We were looking for something light so...I ordered the vegetarian wrap with tomato and basil soup. It was absolutely gorgeous!!! The wrap and soup were both so fresh,so tasty and such generous portions. The restaurant itself is small and dark but has plenty of character and is clean. There are a number of specials which change daily so the menu never gets boring. Staff are friendly and helpful and covid19 safety measures are being followed here. I recommend!!!More

The picture says it all! I had the Ribeye bacon cheese burger and chips. The burger was both substantial and layered in bacon with cheese and a mildly spicy mayonnaise. Just perfection is what i say! The fries were clean and dry with a lovely...crisp and crunch to them. My partner had a beautiful fresh battered cod with veg and mash. Once again it was fresh clean and just delicious! I would like TO highly recommend this spot and i will come back to this little gem at the bottom of Shop street.More

This restaurant was recommended by our son in New York. On his last visit with his wife pre Covid dined here and loved it. We did too because it is great for Coliac's. The staff were welcoming helpful and no questionn regarding allergens were left...unanswered. I am not a Coeliac sufferer so I had a normal meal. They have an extensive wine menu but we opted for cider and local IPA's. Staff all wore PPE, we both enjoyed our meals and had a great evening.More

The food and service at the quay street kitchen was impeccable. We arrived in Galway late and didn't have a resevation but the waiter accomodated us. We ordered chicken wings to start. The portion was large, enough for us to share. For main i ordered...the steak which was cooked perfectly and really well presented. My boyfriend ordered the goats cheese salad which he was also impressed with. The desserts were possibly the most impressive there was about 10 options catering for gluten free and vegan diets. The malteaser cheesecake was fab!More

We had an amazing vegan lasagne (was a special) and a vegan falafel wrap for lunch. Had the best vegetarian/vegan options from the restaurants we looked at around the Latin quarter. The food was top quality and very reasonable. Our waitress was also very friendly...and attentive. 10/10 - would definitely recommend booking well in advance for dinner as it’s such a busy spot!More

A great place in Latin quarter of Galway. Food was great. We both had the Fisherman’s Vessel which was served with crusty bread. It was never ending and the best ever. Pinot Griot white wine was lovely. Chocolate bomb dessert was lovely but very rich....Definitely recommend this restaurant.More

No. But it’s so good and such good value that it’s worth arriving early to be surer of getting a table.

I know this is late but we noticed all of the restaurants in Ireland were very careful about food allergies.
