Left on our own the first day in Ireland, we stopped in the Quay Street Kitchen for lunch. Too many good sounding choices offered so we both picked their special of vegetable soup and a sandwich. Would have loved to eat there every day; but was only able to stop again later in the week.

Had dinner here, everyone catered for, meat, fish, veggie and vegan! Dinner portions were great and the price reasonable, the staff super friendly, its a small place so yes you'll be sitting close to others but its worth that for the food and atmosphere.

We ate twice at this restaurant during our visit to Galway. The menu is pretty extensive and as my daughter is vegetarian there were some really good options - She actually had trouble choosing from the options.

Warm, inviting, nice staff, the club sambo was great, the wings are lovely. They have a wine list but I saw bottled beer in the fridge when I was paying the bill, wish I had known sooner. Lovely spot
