Description: One of Galway's most enduring restaurants, housed in one of the city's most iconic restaurant spaces, Ard Bia has always placed as much emphasis on community experiences and aesthetic stimulation as on serving great food in a fun environment. We believe in having roots in a place whilst having an identity that transcends location and takes inspiration from around the world.

Great meal. We had just a fantastic time and meal here. Great wine recommendation, great service, and spectacular food. We had just arrived from NYC, we were tired, hungry and ready for some fab food. We were not disappointed. We own a couple restaurants ourselves - this was a treat.

Located at Spanish Arch next to the river Corrib - no better location possible in Galway! And serving great food. What do you want more? Ard Bia is another restaurant not to miss in Galway. Enjoy it.

This is not a restaurant to miss! You may need a reservation but it is a wonderful gourmet-type restaurant! We spent two weeks in several towns in Ireland and this restaurant stood out as the best! When we go back to Ireland, this restaurant will definitely be on our list!!

This is a fantastic restaurant right by the water in Galway, next to the Spanish Arch, in an old building. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and is full of character.

The food is really great and certainly is one of the best (if not the best) meals we had in Galway. There is an emphasis on seafood (unsurprisingly) but there are some excellent meat and vegetarian options as well. There is also an interesting wine list (I had Indian white wine!) and every course was fantastic.

The service is also top class - attentive without being overbearing, and the waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful.

Even though it is very popular, we were able to get a table straightaway as the restaurant is larger than it appears from the outside. It is, however, probably worthwhile booking at the weekends.

It is a little pricey, but worth it for the quality.

I highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for dinner in Galway.
