We stayed as guests and went here for dinner on our first night as we were too tired to look for a place to eat. Glad we did! The three course supper plan fit our needs nicely and my wife, daughter and I all enjoyed different items from the menu. The staff was efficient and nice.

I know we are obvious tourist, but waitress did an excellent job taking care of us. She walked us through the menu and Gabe us great recommendations on our drinks. I tried the Galway Bay Ale. Very smooth. I had the steak, sirloin medium rare. Cooked excellent. My wife had the fish and chips. She said it was Yummy with a light and fluffy batter. The dinner had ample portions as it had a coleslaw and a dinner salad as sides. As well as crisp steak potatoes and onion rings. Needless to say, if we ever venture back to Ireland we will be back. O have to add that I discovered this restaurant on Grab One and it was an excellent value.

As a group of 12 this restaurant catered for our every need as well as giving us time to wait for a delayed diner!
The menu was varied and interesting, the service was good, staff helpful and chatty. Portions were extremely generous, you certainly would not leave here hungry. The only thing that let them down was the quality of the desserts, the profiteroles were heavy and doughy, rhubarb crumble was light in the fruit dept, 5 of our party had profiteroles nobody ate them, we mentioned that they were not very nice and our server said she would tell the chef, but never came back with any feedback... cheese cake was beautiful tho!
Overall would recommend this restaurant great food and value for money.

While staying several days in Galway we discovered the Western, thanks to TA. It was in walking distance from our hotel on the square which made it a plus. From start to end it was excellent . Daniel served up a cocktail he had invented as well as our dinner. He as well as the other staff along with the fantastic food made for an enjoyable evening.
