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!

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.
