“Just grand! ”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Don't go past this fantastic restaurant on your next visit to galway. The decor is fun and warm, service is polite, friendly and attentive. The food... amazing. A great example of Spanish food. Simple home style cooking that is full of flavour and heart warming. Hands down the best food we had here and in the best environment. The chef even came out and had a chat too. I would say 1.5-2 dishes is plenty for 1 person. The servings are very generous but never fear you can take the goods home with you if you fail to get through it all. The table next to us had a paella which looked great too. 5 stars!

“Best place in Galway”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

I've eaten here a few times now and have never had anything to complain about. Lovely food and staff and at a fantastic price too. Such a great variety of food and it is proper Spanish tapas. They are so welcoming and couldn't make you feel more at home. Would highly recommend to everyone.

“Superb food - seriously great flavours”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

OK we may have had our experience coloured by dining with a friend of the proprietors... but the food was superb (chef's recommendations - tortillas, squid in ink, mussels, chicken, patatas bravas con chorizo, gambas al ajillo) with a range of great flavours. Wine and beer also good, and the desserts divine (creme caramel and a creme brulee subtle and rich)... great food, relaxed service and a very reasonable price for it all. Recommend!
