For many years the Galleon restaurant has a good reputation in Salthill. On my recommendation two friends joined me for a meal there on 29th April. While the food was good we were very disappointed by the lack of customer care shown by the dining room supervisor. When 'our' table became available after having stood in a Q for 15... More

Food was simply amazing. Best we've had since coming to Ireland. Service was great too! We had the lamb and it was literally melt in your mouth good.

Some people rave about the quality of food they get at Cracker Barrel. Galleon's food is on par with that. To me it is uninspired, unimaginative . Not bad, just not what I expect from a fine restaurant in a competitive market.

Got the Cod and Chips, (€16). Chips were lovely but the cod was in 3 pieces like goujons with very thin pieces of fish inside the batter so didn't feel like great value for money. Partner got the classic burger (€14) and said it was lovely. Atmosphere didn't feel like a restaurant, more like a busy cafe.

My mum, niece and i went in here on a saturday afternoon to get some food. At the front door you have to wait to be seated. We were waiting here for quiet sometime whilst the lady ignored us as she was talking to people who were leaving. Finally we got our seat and placed out order. My mothers tea... More

We had seaplate - the most expencive at the menue. The shrimps were dry and tasted nothing - lying on a yellow majoneeselike sauce. 3 herrings from a tin. Dry and old salmon accompanied good coddfish. Lousy food for 18 euro each. Stay away!!
