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.

Myself, children and grandparents visited this restaurant in January. The food was absolutely fantastic. The serves was second to none. Could not fault anything. Peter the owner was so friendly and great with the children. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Castlebar.

We had our Christmas Eve dinner here and it is no doubt one of the most memorable evenings we’ve had! The food was superb (tasty and fresh with generous portions). The atmosphere and ambiance were warm, welcoming and lovely. The service was exceptional. But our...story and contact with the restaurant started before we even arrived in Ireland. I emailed the restaurant when we were still in the States. Alex, one of the owners, got back to me right away. Alex is the most thoughtful and accommodating restaurant owner I have ever had contact with. We have two allergy cases in our family. Alex went out of his way to find options for us. When I told him this was a birthday trip for my husband, he and his staff prepared a wonderful surprise for my husband which totally made his day!! Alex, his father Peter and the young waiter whose name I did not get truly made our visit a most special one!! It was totally worth the 1.5 hour drive from Galway to enjoy our delightful Xmas dinner at Blue Serenade! We will come back.More

Recently visited this restaurant for a family birthday. From the beginning, the staff were very welcoming and helpful. They told us the specials and were very attentive throughout the meal. Lovely selection of food, there is something for everyone. Our table got seabass, the fajitas...and the special chicken dish. The food could have been a little hotter but overall it was very tasty and enjoyable. It was also very reasonably priced for the standard of food. We will definitely be returning before the Christmas!More

My wife and I booked for her birthday dinner, we were met by Peter at the door and straightaway you could feel a friendly and welcoming place to eat. We were shown to our tables and enjoyed a few minutes chatting with Peter, he is...very engaging and genuinely listens to what you have to say, having come from the UK .It is really refreshing to find someone who wants to take time and talk.. We ordered food which was soup for me (piping hot). Arrived promptly and was really delicious and filling almost didn't need anything else, almost!! My main was grilled hake on a bed of mashed potatoes with veg, I'm not normally a fish person but this would change your mind straight away, just fell apart in the best possible way and so tasty, my wife had baked chicken and salad which again she thoroughly enjoyed.. Peter checked on us regularly and made conversation between courses. Dessert was raspberry and vanilla cheesecake with ice cream, again just perfect and generous portion sizes. We finished with two lattes these were nice and hot, we have found in the past by time you get them there nearly cold..( not here, just a generalisation of other restaurants) We would whole heartedly recommend this restaurant to anybody that enjoys good well cooked fresh food , with a good atmosphere and a very charming host. we will be moving out of the area soon but have said we will be back, that's a given. Thank you for wonderful evening . Michael and Karen BarrettMore

My wife and I, two of our young adult children and my father all enjoyed the night out in this restaurant. We couldn't make it till late, but Peter met us at the door and brought us straight to the table reserved for us. Then...the bigger, more comfortable round table became available and he suggested we move there for our comfort. Lovely food, especially the Indonesian fish special 'tiqui taca'. Our 15 year old enjoyed that as much as we did. 10/10. Dad, in his 70's, enjoyed the hake so much so, that he went back the next evening and had it again. We left it too late to have dessert, but will make it earlier the next time.More
