I have eaten in Massimo twice over the past two weeks. I must admit Massimo was not on my radar but I have to say that I was quietly impressed. It has under gone a face lift and the place looks like it should be in a vintage inspired movie. The atmosphere and feel of the place is completely different... More

We joined a large group of Wasps supporters at Massimos where we had a large table booked for the evening prior to a rugby match. The restaurant was packed with diners and the bar was very busy. Friendly, efficient staff. Great Guinness. A short walk from the town centre, on the other side of the river from the Main town.

Dean is Galway's worst barman. On a busy Saturday night he was totally unable to cope so he was rude and ignored anyone who complained. At the end of the night I tried again to speak to him...his only response.. why don't you review me on tripadvisor. ..so here here it is as asked Dean.

I visited Massimo with a Friend tonight and it was great! The Steak was awesome and the Chorizo and Pork burger was the best burger I've had in Galway. Everything was seasoned perfectly and the sauces were delicious. It is definitely the best bar food in Galway and while the prices are the same as many others, the quality and... More

Ate here again with family recently and can honestly say it keep delivering. Good service, great menu (Chorizo burger was just fantastic), duck fat chips and great value. The quality of food is terrific and I love the wooden boards for service and home made ketchup. Top tunes playing too. Ample space out the back for parties too.

4 people looking for a place to grab a bit and watch Ireland play Canada in the Rugby over the "west end" of Galway City. We were pointed in Massimos direction as Monroes was packed. Was really impressed with the game coverage, food and service. There's a nice character to the place between the sports, music, food and decor. We... More

A short walk from the main drag of Galway, Massimo is well worth the extra walk. The restaurant has a great vibe and was perfectly setup for the Euro 2016 festivities when we visited. The food was absolutely amazing with the steak, fries and salad being up there with the best you will ever have, add in a cold pint... More
