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.

Johnny and his staff made my sisters birthday an evening to remember on our trip. The food was excellent, the service was great. Chatting with Johnny, and other patrons made the evening even more special. The salmon appetizer was perfect, and the fish was delicious....Highly recommend!!More

I had read about this cafe/restaurant but each time I drove through Oughterard I missed it as it is quite small and kind of hidden behind a tree on the main street. This time I located it and what a find. We arrived for lunch...and had one of the best lunches ever. The soup was just delicious and the home made brown bread scrumptious. The homemade apple sponge melted in the mouth! I would highly recommend this establishment and hope to return soonMore

What a find this restaurant is, it is really something special. Run by Johnny, front of house, his chef wife, and their warm and friendly team, they specialise in fish dishes, but also offer meat dishes such as steaks. The latter was cooked exactly to...order and highly appreciated by some French diners nearby. I had the spicy salmon bites starter, grilled hake on a bed of roasted potatoes and chorizo for a main course, rhubarb and almond frangipane for dessert, and an americano. Together with two glasses of French Cabernet Sauvignon, it was honestly the best meal I have had in years. The food is superb, the staff wonderful, and there is a feeling to this special restaurant that was simply joyful. Do yourself a favour, dine or lunch here, but reserve in advance to avoid disappointment, it’s popular.More

There is a Super Hero hiding in the kitchen! To say this was the BEST chicken I have ever devoured, is not even serving it justice! The food here is phenomenal, the presentation alone scores the highest marks, and the taste will only transport you....The astounding offerings combined with John’s charisma, and his stellar staff, truly the reason we will always return!More

This is a fantastic little gem. We popped in on a Sunday afternoon with our 4yr old grandson in toe who was undecided if he was vegetarian or not that day. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating. 2 dishes served without fuss. Food was...fabulous and the service was top notch.More

Myself and my partner ate here last night and I cannot recommend it enough! Often we struggle to find somewhere we can both enjoy a meal as I follow a gluten free diet but the cafe catered for gluten free so well! I had the...hake and my partner had the steak both of which were exceptional, followed by chocolate fudge cake and gluten free carrot cake...both were delicious. Staff were so kind and attentive throughout the service and the owner gave us loads of recommendations for places to visit during our stay....we will definitely be returning!More

I don't know the answer to your question, but would guess not. If you send an email query to Greenway Cafe, I'm certain Johnnie would get right back to you.
