A very pleasurable dining experience and well worth the wait. The quality of what we had was on a par with the very best I have eaten. The atmosphere is relaxed, staff friendly and the cooking very assured. Without doubt deserving of a michelin star. A delightful way to finish the meal was to personally get to thank the genius who created and cooked this wonderful treat. Great value, Great place. A must for food lovers.

Extremely overrated. Incredible that when a place gains a good reputation then people who visit jump on the bandwagon because they go with the expectation of having a wonderful experience. My opinion - food is average and overpriced. Had a seafood cocktail for starter. LOTS of lettuce, some crab meat, small and frozen prawns topped with a crab claw(best part)and sun dried tomato and drizzled with an inadequate amount of Marie rose sauce. Fellow diners had an average onion soup, and crab claws which are impossible to get wrong because you buy them in fresh and prepare an adequate sauce to accompany them. One of my fellow diners asked was the sole on the main course black sole. This was confirmed however when delivered she received lemon sole which was still the best of the three main courses. Avoid the duck. Looks well on arrival with crispy exterior but very chewy with a flavourless stuffing. Didn't try deserts but at over 6 euro they should be exceptional! Interior drab. Service adequate. Won't be rushing back.

Cava Spanish Restaurant & Tapas Bar
51 Lower Dominick Street, Galway City, Galway

Food is innovative and of a high standard. Large variety of tapas and mains to suit all. The service was attentive yet inobtrusive. Nice atmosphere with live spanish music. Contrary to previous reviews i found it reasonably priced. Group of 6 150 euro including a bottle of wine and some beers. We ordered 8 different tapas, two paellas and a plata de montadito for the group and found it all quite savoury and a good way to sample a lot of different plates. Will be returning.

Martines Restaurant & Wine Bar
21 Quay Street, Galway, Galway City, Galway

Satisfactory dining experience but don,t expect to be overawed. Safe food in a crowded but atmospheric setting with efficent service. Overpriced if you stick to the a la carte.

Mulberry Restaurant and Wine Bar
Unit 14 Barna Village Centre, Barna, Galway

Spent an enjoyable evening at this restaurant. Nice decor, extensive menu, friendly staff and very well prepared and tasty food. Although quiet on the evening in question the decor and music created a nice ambience. Have an early bird menu and daily specials along with a large variety of pasta and continental dishes. Staff were professional and not over intrusive. Prices were fair and the food was prepared fresh. Try the duck which was crisp on the exterior while stlll maintining moisture. The vegetables were fresh and steamed to order. Left feeling quite content and will definitely return.

Trattoria Magnetti

Limited menu in very basic surroundings. Average italian food at reasonable prices. Don't expect to be overwhelmed.

L'Osteria Da Roberta
157 Upper Salthill, Salthill, Galway

Nice italian food at reasonable prices in quaint surroundings with friendly service. Do not confuse it with it's larger sister restaurant two doors away. The smaller "L'Osteria" offers a much more intricate menu while the larger "Da Roberto's" is more standard italian fare with a large choice of pizza's etc. Overall a plesant dining experience.

Screebe House
Camus, Connemara, Galway

Little known gem which I would highly recommend. Limited menu produced by an excellent french chef with the freshest of produce and cooked to perfection. Atmosphere and service great. Ideal for groups or a romantic few days stay. Try the surf 'n turf if available, the best combination of fillet steak and lobster that I have ever eaten. Laid back atmosphere but without doubt one of the finest hidden restaurants in the west of Ireland. Not to be missed. Booking essential.

Kashmir Indian Restaurant
Kilderry House, Lower Fairhill Road, Galway City, Galway

Excellent Indian cuisine in a typical Indian environment. Good value. I find that a main course alone is adequate. Try the balti but everything is super. BestIndian west of the Shannon.
