Absolutely loved this restaurant. I went on a Tuesday and the all the mains were on special for 10 euros. I ordered the pasta and it was so delicious! I would've gladly paid full price. Wine selection was also great. A must while in Galway.

The space is quite tiny and loud, but compensated by great fish stew and friendly staffs. Unfortunately they don't have any lamb dish, hope they will add it to the menu soon.

I would not expect the level of quality food served on the €10 deal. Excellent steak! Very loud and busy but worth it. Make reservations!
