It's probably over 20 years since I was last in Fat Freddy's but found myself back in Galway this week and couldn't resist going back to see if the pizza was as good as I remembered. This time I had my husband and two boys with me. We all had pizza and all loved it. Including my two boys aged... More

Passed this restaurant a number of times and finally paid it a visit. The waiter was really nice (it was his first day) so my review is absolutely no reflection on him. Food was mediocre to say the least. My husband had the ribs the fattiest he has had in years and first time I ever remember him leaving over... More

Food fine! - Staff lacked customer care skills. Staff member kept getting customer orders mixed up. Left a group of 3 waiting quite a while to get a table. We also waited extra time since our order was given to other group. Then a member of their group waited so long while she was left without when my dish was... More

My friend and I stopped here for lunch my first day in Galway. Both our meals were delicious and the service was very good. I visited towards the end of March, but we got to sit outside where they left blankets on the chairs in case we needed them - I thought that was a very thoughtful touch!

My husband and I dined there at the weekend and were very disappointed. One of the starters we ordered were sold out (at 7pm) and my chosen main course was no longer on their menu (it is written up on the menu). I hastily chose a chicken fajita pizza which was just awful. It had an awful smell and taste,... More

Had a pizza here recently, first time I had visited in years. It wasn't very nice. The ingredients are cheap and clearly prepackaged. I had a chicken pizza, and the chicken was of the vacuum packed variety. For the price, you are much better off going across the street to one of the Italians, or even down to Monroe's for... More

Went here recently based on numerous recommendations from friends. My partner and I are both vegan and our waitress could not have been more helpful, from helping us choose what to get and offering us vegan mayo to go with our meal and letting us know the after dinner mints were vegan - this was all very much appreciated.

Was on the mood for spaghetti bolognese so we decided on Fat Freddy's. The dinner was cold and tasteless. Been here a few times now and haven't enjoyed the food. We won't be going back again.
