“Slow food”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

It's not something bad, they are slow cooking which means that the cook with a lot of care. The food was great. Maybe a bit expensive and you need to go there if you're not in a hurry. But you'll enjoy it.

“Best vegetarian meal that I have ever had in 28 years of being vegetarian.”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Fabulous vegetarian baklava and meat loving husband also thought that his steak was amazing. And as for the chocolate pot dessert, absolute beauty and perfection. All with great service, can't recommend it highly enough.

“Perfect anniversary dinner”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

My husband and I booked a table for our wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. The staff was incredibly friendly and even offered suggestions as to what to order. We enjoyed two started, but one would ease all suffice, as the portions are quite large. Our main courses were to die for! I had an eggplant(aborigine) dish, that was beautifully balanced and had tons of complex flavor. My husband said his lamb was the best he has ever had.

When we visit Galway we always go at weekends for breakfast in Nimmo's - the staff are friendly - the food is really good. A bit pricey but so worth it...the location and atmosphere are priceless!

“Really foodies restaurant on historic riverfront”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We had a wonderful meal at Ard Bia - every dish was fresh and unique, the atmosphere eclectic and artsy. We loved the two women running the place but they seemed really over taxed with the crowd and could have used a few more hands. Otherwise and excellent experience.
