While I do understand that this restaurant is more expensive than the usual ones in galway, it is worth every cent more! The food is always so fresh and tasty, with the view being so spectacular that money couldn't buy! I'd advise someone to always...More

Food was great. Sea bass fried and cooked to perfection. Hake was also very nicely done and came with prawns that were really good. Seafood was fresh and you can tell that but the flavour. It was very good and the view on a clear...More

O'Grady's if great, but be warned - its best to book in advance. A father/daughter lunch break from Gaelteacht duties brought me to this little gem. The mussels were plump fresh and beautifully cooked. My daughter had the smoked & fresh salmon rillettes which was...More

This is a very nice option. It is located anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes outside of Galway (in Brana) down a lane that terminates at a pier and a small rock harbor. We went on a rainy evening and enjoyed watching the waves and...More

Seafood, steak, what's not to like? Great food in an atmospheric restaurant in a lovely location. Locally sources food, well prepared and well presented by lovely staff. Can't wait to come back with my other half for a romantic evening.

The portions were skimpy and the lobster was only fair but a great ambiance. No one was blown away by their meal.

This restaurant is located as the name suggests on the pier in Barna just west of Galway city centre. The setting is stunning and the view from the upstairs of Galway Bay and county Clare across the bay is magnificent. Great seafood, though some of...More

Fantastic meal in this restaurant. Stunning sea views. Very quaint Irish restaurant. We ate downstairs and there is seating upstairs also with spectacular views. Good selection on the menu but mostly fish as it is primarily a seafood restaurant. Steak was delicious.

The menu is not that broad. Pretty limited, but of the four of us, we got four different courses and all enjoyed our meals.
