My Fiancee and are currently visiting Galway and this little gem was probably our favourite part of the experience. The food was amazing. (The mussels were beautifully cooked and tasted so fresh). The service was just fabulous. Huge, fresh portions provided for a great price. We would definitely return should we visit this part of the country again.

My Boyfriend and I visited this restaraunt as we were planning a lovely romantic night out and chose to book a table at Gemelles and definitely were not dissapointed. From start to finish everything was catered for meticulously. We both ordered the fajitas for a main course, one chicken and one beef and they were absolutely delicious. The sauce was so tasty and left us asking them what it was! They give great sized portions which makes you feel full and satisfied leaving. After dinner we ordered dessert. We both ordered the cheescake and it was absoultely devine. The cheescake itself came in small latern shaped pots which just added to the delicate and intricate detail of the dessert. It was so beautifully decorated, you want to gawk at it and not eat it! It was very tasy and presented beautifully. The staff were friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is sophisticated yet welcoming. There is a sense of ambience with the dim candle light and fairy lights outside the building. It is located at the very end of Quay street heading towards spanish arch so you can walk along the scenery afterwards. It is both affordable yet chic and I would definitely recommend Gemelles for a romantic night out with your other half.

We visited this lovely restaurant for our wedding anniversary on a visit to Galway. We went for the good value two course menu but increased it by both going for the steak.My husband had his cooked to order as he likes it well done and I prefer mine rare. I ordered the steak on the stone. Wow it was a treat to see it coming out still cooking. One tip, lift the steak onto a plate and only put it back on the hot stone little by little or you will get it very well done! Very nice visit and very friendly staff with great service. Thank you.

Lovely cosy Restaurant. Unique and quirky spot but possibly a little hidden on road-view. Excellent Service, Staff accommodating and attentive. Good food. Plentiful servings from what I could see. Only quibble there would have been liked more vegetables. Also there didn't seem to be that wide a selection of Desserts i.m.o. Cute n' quirky delph-ware and utensils. Lovely all-round ambience. Would I go there again? Yes. :)

1st visit would definitely recommended opted for 2 courses for 20 euro.. I had the pork neck which was tasty lovely black pudding. Ate Duck for main course duck with orange cooked really well each individual item like duck breast, confit of duck and ginger. But found the dish not balanced extremely sweet needing something savoury to really balance the extremely sweet orange sauce. ginger and red onion... Had trio of Chocolate mousse really lovely. Husband had duck confit for starter and Steak which lacked seasoning.. But chips were lovely and came out on a butchers block.. Would highly recommend restaurant lovely ambience and very cosy... Excellent service and great value for money

I went here for my sister's Hen Party. I'm not that familiar with Galway but this place was the best thing about the entire weekend. The place itself is a little cramped and seems to be a popular haunt for Hen Parties (though of the more civilised kind). I found the mismatched chairs quirky and charming. The food far exceeded my expectation as it was both delicious and well presented. The bill was not harsh on the purse strings either. I only regret that this little gem is in Galway, and not in Dublin.

Have eaten here before a few times and always found the food and service excellent. However, on this occasion the food wasn't as great as usual. We ordered mussels for starters which were tiny when they arrived out from the kitchen, looked like they had too much heat. No side plates were given for the bread which was annoying and no finger bowls after the mussels. The mains were much better, my partner ordered the steak which was cooked perfectly ( medium- rare) and I ordered the duck which was slightly over cooked but it came with lovely stuffing and vegtables. The dessert menu didn't leave much to the imagination so we both skipped it.

Had a great experience here, the service is one of the friendliest and relaxed I have come across. We shared the crostini with cheese and pesto to start - this was just ok, nothing special to be honest. For mains, I had the seafood with linguini and really enjoyed it, perfect portion and lovely big juicy prawns and plenty of mussels. We had 3 glasses of wine each and a coffee and bill came to €63 which we were happy with for peak sat night dining. Will definitely go back when next in Galway!

My wife and I visited Gemelles last night without booking in advance. We were brought upstairs and attended to by a very helpful waitress. We both had the goats cheese parcels as starters. A perfect choice. I went for the Fillet steak with home fries, beautifully cooked and well presented. She went for Carbonara Fetuccine Verde. This was washed down with Ljalba, Rioja Reserva. Dessert was the uniquely presented Cheese Cake with icecream. We finished with 2 coffees. A very enjoyable meal at a good price.

My girlfriend and I were in Galway on Tuesday night for her HDip Graduation and visited Gemelles for a pre-ceremony meal. Lovely interior, intimate feel with the low ceilings and little nooks. The 2 courses for €20 from the A la Carte is excellent value with a good choice on offer. For starter I had the duck liver pate which was very tasty and presented beautifully. My only quibble of the whole evening (only a minor one) was that my girlfriend asked for the crostini to start without the cheese, we were informed that this was not possible because they were already made up, in my opinion a request that should be easily met by a restaturant of Gemelles' quality). Instead she had the soup which wa nice, a massive portion! Both mains were outstanding- mine was gunea fowl cooked perfectly as it was very moist and tasty, accompanying sauce was excellent. She had the lamb shank which fell from the bone as a good lamb shank should do, the dish was gorgeous and even though I was extremely happy with my guinea fowl I was slightly envious looking at that lamb! 1 dessert (really good shortbread with mascarpone and strawberries), 1 espresso and a bottle of house red the bill came to €61. Excellent value for money as the quality of the food and cooking shone through. Excellent service (apart from my minor quibble), friendly and attentive.

We were there for a meal on Monday night. Service was good. No long waits between courses. All happy with starters. Three of us went for fillet steak and all were cooked as ordered! The other two went for Fish and Fajihitas and were very happy with their meal. We had two deserts and ended up having four bottles of wine. Overall bill was 180 euros which I felt was very reasonable for a meal for five with wine.. We will definitely return.

Had dinner her last monday night - there was good few people in the place so made the atmosphere pleasent for a monday night. We went for the 2 for 2 menu - I had crostini which was tasty but my partner had duck liver which was outstanding. For mains I went for duck which I have to say was lovely and crispy and stuffing was fab. It came with baby potatoes and veg which I thought i would have to order seperatly but came with dish. My partner had fajita - which where also so tasty as spices on meat where perfect. We shared a dessert but i was so full that could hardly eat it. House bottle of wine was €15 and it was nice. Had really nice evening and will go again on next trip to Galway.
