Went there with my son for baguettes & chips...the service and staff so unfriendly & miserable looking, no atmosphere, baguettes were hard as a rock, chips as if they had been sitting there all day ..just awful & rude staff one girl in particular hissed at me & my son when we were in the loo talking about how awful it was, she hissed at us.. Definitely would not go there again as not value for money, wouldn't have minded if food was nice but overall a horrible experience

Had continental breakfast here on a Saturday morning: croissants were stale and their cappuccino is watery and tasteless. It is a self service, not particularly cosy. Overall a bit disappointed.

Went here on the advice of someone who lives just outside the city. I was looking for somewhere near Eyre Square and just wanted a light lunch. I had the Grilled Fillet of Salmon with Hollandaise Sauce and it was excellent. I stayed on a little longer and grabbed a coffee to go - will be back when I visit Galway City again!

Went for lunch here recently. Food was ok but very much a canteen type setting. Was also very busy and overly crowded.

Tried upstairs last night with my wife and 3 kids I had chicken maryland and my wife had salmon The meal was really good and the kids menu went down a treat especially the colouring book gift. It cost €70 for the 5 of us. I consider that great value in these times and would definitely go back again

I have eaten here many times but it always seems the same downstairs - busy, no seats and mediocre service. However, if you choose to eat upstairs it is quite different - helpful staff, good menu and no rushing. The toilets are not convenient from downstairs either - they are located up lots of stairs. Overall, avoid the lower level and eat upstairs in the restaurant.

Who doesn't know an older relative that doesn't frequent this place on a daily basis? It's a great place to have a cuppa and watch the day go by!!

I've eaten in the GBC a couple of times and I think it's just OK. The food is tasty enough but the prices are quite high, considering what you get. The menu is varied however and there is a good choice.

This cafe has been in Galway for years, and other than redecorating it has never improved. The staff can be very abrupt; the prices are extremely high for Galway, normally its impossible to get a seat. I normally just go in for a quick coffee when meeting someone in Galway, outside the GBC is a common meeting place!
