We strolled along Quay Street, Galway from the Eyre Square end enjoying the busking and street acts at about 7pm on a Friday evening, keeping an eye out for a suitable place to eat. Having got all the way to the bottom we decided that Tratoria Magnetti looked the most inviting and when approached for a table we were accomodated immediately. There was a broad choice of well priced starters and mains and I could happily have tried each of them. The prawn skewers were delicious and the bruschetta classica was well received also. Mains of butterflied chicken breast, pizza Diavola and the sea bass special of the day also hit the spot as did the deserts. there was no rush and the staff were friendly and pleasant. There was a wide ranging clientele of tourists, families, girls night out and couples and a welcoming atmosphere.When we paid our bill and left we realised that it wasn't that we had found an undiscovered gem, but rather that we had beaten the crowd...there was now a healthy queue out the door and across the street. I think if we'd been an hour later we might have been put off by the queue but knowing what we know now it would have been well worth the wait had it been necessary, If I find myself in Galway again I'd go back and if you find yourself in Galway give it a try.
