I regularly eat breakfast and lunch here and I would highly recommend. Also a handy option of leaving your coffee card behind the counter for collecting stamps!

Lovely Mediterranean food, excellent service and great location. Menu offers something different than the usual soup and sandwich. Dal of the day and meze plate were excellent. Good prices and great atmosphere. Would highly recommend for a nice lunch

This has, hands down, the best brunch in Galway! Their menu offers an excellent variety of options; from a full fry-up, to a vegetarian mezze. Achieving an incredibly high standard every time, it never disappoints. Great value to boot!

Being vegetarians, we ordered a Mediterranean Mezze Platter and a veg wrap both of which were awesome making it the best meal we had in our weeklong stay in Ireland. The service too was great!

Great Food in The Galway City Museum, overlooking the Spanish Arch. The Kitchen serves exciting fusion cuisine using local produce and great Irish fish and meat. Vegetarians are well catered for, Gluten Free options are always available ( our Chocolate Brownies are AWESOME!!! even if we say so ourselves!). Open for extra special night-time dining from 6pm from Thursday - Saturday... great, vibrant, taste-tingling food, all prepared in house with love & passion by THE KITCHEN team.
