A very good choice- very nicely designed restaurant and good food. We were driving through the countryside and didn't know where to stop- it seemed like Mallow was the biggest town around so we stopped there. The Gallery seemed like a great choice in town and it was. Good food for both the adults and kids.

The Gallery always has a lovely relaxed friendly atmosphere. I've eaten here about ten times in the last year. My personal favourites are the Nam Tok and the Salmon on stir fried vegetables. They do a great early bird menu for 2 and 3 course meals. Thank me later!

We ate in this restaurant twice over a two week period. The staff were fantastic, and the food was delicious. As a family of 6, it can be difficult to get something to suit everyone, but The Gallery has a menu which suited everyone. Thank you for everything!

Where to start. Ok so it was a busy Sunday evening fair enough one would say. Waited a good 20mins for order to be taken. In this time the waitresses managed to sit out the window we were sitting at having cigarette breaks and nattering amongest themselves. We were left waiting for our order to be taken while others waited for food to be delievered. We weren't the only ones complaining. I was ready to get up and leave only for the company I had with me decided to stick it out another awhile. When our order was taken we weren't asked did we want any beverages. One of us went to bar and instead of having them put in the tab payment was demanded by bar man. Ok it's minor but annoying. 2 of us ordered starter portions while the others ordered mains. We had asked for the 4 dishes to be brought together but no we got ours and had it finished before the others received there meals. I work in hospitality and this Is not the service anyone should have displayed to them. The supermacs in the next town would Have been better. I am very sorry to have to say it.

Our family have dined here on more than one occasion. On our last visit our eldest son ordered a burger. In fairness to him he is slow to complain, but after a while did mention his burger wasn't nice as it had a funny taste. His mum took a bite and agreed with him. I in turn took a bite and sure enough there was a bitterness one would associate with food having gone off.
We mentioned this to a staff member and a replacement dish was promptly delivered to our table. Fair enough one would say, these things can happen. I would always be prepared to give the benefit of the doubt.
When we were paying for our meal the owner/manger was tending to us. He commented our child "didn't like" the burger. We corrected him saying it was gone off at which point he mentioned they had not received any other complaints that day. He suggested it must have been the seasoning.
We are fortunate enough to have been able to eat out in a large variety of restaurants over the years and can say with certainty it was indeed gone off.
For any staff member/manager or owner to imply we couldn't tell the difference is irritating to say the least.
Unfortunately there was no form of apology offered.

The staff here are good. The management not so. As for the food stick to the traditional dishes which they do well. Forget stir fry, oriental dishes etc. these they don't do so well.
