We found this stop while passing through the town, and it turned out as a jackpot! The food was absolutely great, the service was very nice and fast, and the whole place is lovely furnished and really cozy. Don't miss this when you are in town!

Good food, great service and good atmosphere. Just passing through the town and stopped because we liked the yellow paint on the windows. Had the salmon, steak sandwich, pulled pork brioches and chicken quesadilla. All meals were delicious.

Travelling around Galway looking at the tourists sites of east Galway - most closed btw on a Sunday afternoon on St Patrick's weekend - and looking for a light lunch and snack - most had the seafood chowder with lovely homemade bread - definitely recommended a visit - dinner menu and food looked delicious too
