Really delicious and varied menu. I'm not even keen on fish/seafood and yet plenty of choice. Service is friendly and efficient without being obsequious. Great ingredients. Highly recommend!

Don’t be put off by the limited menu. The seafood is as good as it gets. Excellent local oysters and best grilled Sea bass, ever.

This is not a resort but a restaurant - it's located about an hours drive from the nearest airport, it is close to a main bus service and about 20 minutes walk from main city of Galway.

Beautiful cafe and restaurant by the sea, over looking galway bay. We provide great food and service in a casual relaxed atmosphere. The fisherman restaurant is supplied directly by fisherman and friends daily with the freshest and best produce sourced locally.
