I only had a meal here once & it was nice but I found it to be quite expensive compared with some other restaurants. My friend used to work there & she loved it but I was not overly excited by the food. We were sitting downstair which does look better that the small area they have upstairs. There is also a Galileo in Cahir which is marginally better. Two former chefs from Galileo in Clonmel have now opened their own place in Fermoy called Bella Cafe. This has totally gorgeous food & cheaper than the two Galileo restaurants in Clonmel & Cahir!!

Nothing special about the food. Bruschetta was dreadful - the tomato paste could have come from a jar and don't mention the chicken on top of it! Prices represent good value for what you get. No atmosphere. Won't be in a hurry back.

Galileo do a nice selection of Italian and Mediterranean food. The starters are simple and very well priced. Usually I go for bruschetta or garlic bread and it'll be robust but not too filling. My favourite main course is Chicken Tagine, full of flavour and fresh ingredients, delicious! I love the idea of bringing your own wine as it cuts down on costs, this makes for a very reasonably priced meal! The atmosphere is a bit lacking though, and don't stay too close to closing time...at a friends birthday, a group of 7 of us were told that the restaurant was closing at 9pm, but the lights were turned down at about 8.30pm...we were clearly being asked to leave.

Nice restaurant in the centre of the town. Good extensive menu. Handy that you can bring your own wine. Not much of an atmosphere if you are dining upstairs as its also used as a take away and people are coming in and out all the time. Down stairs is lovely.
