“No TV or Loud Music!”
Reviewed 15 December 2012

Just in case some people don't realise that the smoking fire/cold situation mentioned earlier was an exploration that didn't work out (unfortunately) we would like to set the record straight. We have had, and have, very happy times in this little restaurant. We are local.
The food is real, fresh and very tasty. The atmosphere lacks TV and loud music and is the perfect venue for morning coffee (great cinnamon rolls!), lunch or a quiet dinner with or without friends.
Parties are catered for exquisitely (on or off premises). An added bonus is the art and sculpture around you in the restaurant.
Staff are lovely.

“Good food, high prices”
Reviewed 14 December 2012

I had the seafood chowder which was excellent, but as I can recall it was about 6 euros. Pretty steep. Nice interior though.

“Could do better”
Reviewed 16 September 2012 via mobile

Decided to come here for lunch as it ranks no. 3 in Galway but am sorry to say that this ranking is very misleading. Ordered a steak sandwich and it was very overdone; so too were the onions and mushrooms to the point of being charred. The ciabatta roll for the sandwich was small and dry; there was a side salad with absolutely no dressing and the solitary piece of cucumber was not fresh; the lettuce also looked past its best. I didn't say anything as there was only one person serving; she was very pleasant and efficient but rushed off her feet. All in all, a disappointing experience and not worth driving out from Galway for.

“Nothing special ...”
Reviewed 12 September 2012 via mobile

I visited here for breakfast. I was alone. Just me and the waitress. I think a man who seemed to be a " reverend" later took a table. It was raining outside. The fire was smoking....the place was dreary. The food was ok ... But I could have had as good or better in Galway city with no travel costs. I came here to see " what's the fuss about"., ... Not worth the journey ... Bacon and egg with home fries... Nothin special. Probably fine if you live here...
