We had a fantastic night celebrating our mother’s 70th birthday. The food was great and the service was spectacular. Would highly recommend for small groups. The girls that looked after us were incredible some of the best service we’ve had on our travels!

Easy to lose yourself down these little Medieval lanes. Even easier to stop, look and wonder of the many feet that have trod this way over hundreds of years.

The food, especially the seafood and fish, is delicious. The service is always polite and attentive. This is one of the very best restaurants in Galway.

The food was truly delicious if a little over priced in comparison to other seafood restaurants in the city (Oscar's for example). The wine list and drinks menu is extensive and the setting is lovely. It's an ideal location for dinner and a few drinks...More
