Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Wow what a little gem of a place. About the only place in Galway I could find that serves pancakes with maple syrup after 12 midday!!! The staff member - his name badge said Colm - was so friendly not only to me, but to...everyone who walked in the door no matter their background. He spoke to me about the food and the restaurant and was happy to give me his time, i.e. he didn't just want to take my order, but was willing to engage with me. My pancakes were delicious and arrived promptly. You could tell they were freshly made and weren't just box pancakes. The toilets were very clean. Overall an exceptional experience for a person who wanted an all-day brunch - this seems to be harder to come by in Galway than in my native limerick!!!More

I visited esquires today and from the minute I entered the premises i was made feel so welcome as a customer. I was greeted by a lovely gentleman who had a word for every customer. I asked for a coeliac sandwich and the lady behind...the counter recommended a chicken chorizo and pesto sandwich, it was so tasty and will 100% return for another one. She was also so friendly and made me feel so welcome. The best customer experience I have experience in a very long time 😃More

A wonderful spot in the heart of Galway city. Staff are friendly and attentive. I noticed Gaeilge is also an option to use within the establishment. A wonderful, and more importantly, consistent experience.

The owner greets you, seats you, acknowledges every single person dining. A consummate professional. The food was delicious, service prompt. All in all an exceptionally well run establishment. Worthy of the #1 spot for breakfast.

The hype is real. We went two mornings in a row for the two days we were in Galway. The gentleman that greeted us upon entry both days was so friendly and upbeat. He made us feel so welcome. The food is out-of-this-world, the tea...and coffee are amazing, and the waitresses were attentive and friendly.More
