Ate here with my husband and 3 kids. The kids were ok with chips and goujons. My husband had chowder which was awful. The potatoes and veg with our mains were over cooked and inedible. Worst place I've eaten in galway.

You might be tempted to eat here because of the low price-- don't. The food is not good and the cook needs a lesson in basic hygiene. I was looking directly into the kitchen as my meal was being. prepared. I paid and left, with...More
