A must go in Galway. They serve the best seafood chowder I've ever tasted. I enjoyed every spoon. The mussels are really good as well.

Excellent sea food restaurant plus other foods on the menu, early bird available. Not cheap but good for Galway, Euro100 for 2 starters, 2 mains and a decent bottle of wine. Really good atmosphere a real modern contemporary look & feel and a real buz from happy customers. We had the Hake which was amazing and monk fish both so well cooked and tasty. It gets busy for a reason so book for evening tables, customers were already queuing for the early bird menu. Splash the cash and enjoy a great evening.

Found on Google maps and definitely a great place to dine. Me and my boyfriend had only two courses but they were delicious and filling.
Fishcakes were mentioned in several reviews and I must agree that they're unquestionably yummy. My monkfish was equally tasty so as my boyfriend's choice: mussels.
The place looked pretty busy so worth booking a table. And even though we were quite late, the stuff was very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend!!

Wonderful small restaurant tucked away near the harbor. Everything that my husband and I ordered was wonderful. We went on a weekday and were lucky to get in. Be sure to get reservations. Mussels were fabulous as was my husband's chowder. Leave room for dessert.
