At our first try at Tapas we enjoyed a selection of beautiful food that was cooked to perfection. I can recommend the Monkfish Tempura and the Taco bravo, which we had 2 portions of. Will definitely be backed.

Looking for somewhere different, we found The Olive Tree opposite Waterford Crystal. Small, friendly and a wonderful choice of tapas. Galway Hooker beer was good and house wine deal excellent. We recommend the lentils, meatballs and ling special.
