Went there for a steak, after a loing marathon. It's on the main thoroughfare, and teh staff's attitude shows that. They really could care less about their customers.

having said that, teh food was fine, nothing to write home about but it did the trick. The wine advice we got was particularly lacking, and really the girl knew nothing about wine, although pretending to know her Shiraz from her Cab Sauv.

Plenty of other restaurants in Galway who want to look after their customers, and do so, don't be lazy wandering down Shop Street and fall into this one.

Went here for lunch on Sunday. Thoroughly enjoyed our starters and main courses! I had the bruschetta and then the seafood linguine. It was one of the nicest pasta dishes ive had. Very reasonably priced and the service was nice and friendly, not too fussy which I like. Will be returning very soon!!

We dined in here yesterday 6th April. We went in and the waitress said just sit anywhere. which we did and we were handed menus, the restaurant wasn't busy, one waitress then banged a jug of water and 2 glasses on the table said nothing and walked away, she was very abrupt with ourselves and with other diners. I was in shock. Now for the good the food is tasty and very reasonable price wise. most dishes under €10 however when your charging €8 for a main dish and €6 for a dessert dosn't make much sense!! Could be a fantastic place if they had the right front of house staff.

We dined here on a busy bank holiday weekend. Despite having no booking we were squeezed into a corner table. Service was good and our waitress was very efficient and friendly. We shared Bruschetta and Prawn skewers for starters which were both enjoyable.
For mains we ordered steak and the fish special of the day which was sea-bass. The sea bass was oven cooked with a tomato sauce. I asked to get the sauce separate but unfortunately, although the sauce was served in a separate ramekin, there was still a light layer of it over the fish which ruined it for me. It was served with salad and 4 or 5 small cubes of potato. The steak was ok.
For dessert we had tiramisu which was the highlight of the night.
Good value for money but the mains let it down. Another visit might be warranted on a quieter night when the kitchen is under less pressure.
