Never went for a meal in the evening so can't comment on that but I've had cakes/patries and brunch.

Pastries are ok though quite greasy... and not in good way!! Cakes and tarts are really hit or miss. Some are lovely and truly delicious; some are dried, not nice or even stale. It should be noted that their plain brioche loaf are nice and make very nice french toast or indulgent "bread and butter pudding" ;-)

Brunch: not memorable by any mean!!

In conclusion, would not be the place I'll rush in every week; just not reliable and predictable...

We visited the Gourmet Tart Co in Salthill 3 times whilst we stayed there. Twice for breakfast and once for an evening meal. The food was fantastic. Beautifully cooked and served. The menus for both breakfast and dinner were that bit different to your average. I am not a fan of the 'big fry' breakfast but thoroughly enjoyed their poached eggs on English muffins with a slice of bacon and tomato relish. Their dinner menu (only available at the weekends I think) was equally interesting reflecting the nationalities of the cooks! It was an eclectic mix which worked for us. Every meal we had was fabulous, and we are not easily impressed.

We liked the ambiance of the restaurant as well as the décor. We loved the noisy hustle and bustle of it.

If you are self catering try their breads, cakes plus so much more. We only wish we had a branch near to us in the UK. It stood out to us as just different with high quality food and great service at a reasonable price.

Cant wait to revisit!

Great food, from the hot brunch menu. This place is always too noisy at lunch time due to the rooms acoustics. HOwever, it is a good option for a reasonably priced lunch- I recommend the dahl. ENjoy!

The food, service & attention to detail has been excellent. In fact the food has been beyond value for money. I'm a fish eating veggie & there is always loads to chose from.Staff are well informed, very attentive & so welcoming, they know the menu & there is no sense of rush with having to finish up & go home. Well done

While on holiday with our family a few years ago we went for a coffee and fell in love with the place. The kids love the selection of tasty treats and as someone fond of a good coffee I was happy. There is great atmosphere in the place and I cannot fault the staff even when it's been very busy they've been polite and accommodating.

I like the fact that they supply a lovely free bottle of water and glasses when you sit down which makes you feel very welcome - a nice touch! The food is excellent, well presented and reasonably priced.

Every time we are back in Galway we look forward to going for a coffee or lunch and on this weekend break we have been every day :-)

Enough said - enjoy!!
