We chose the all evening early bird menu and I chose to pay the supplement for the Ribeye steak which was excellent and cooked very accurately. All the food was great though the service could have been sharper

First, I should say that the Eggs Benedict was amazing and served in a very pleasant setting. Unfortunately, the waitress was so nasty and her behavior so uncalled for, that we left with an unpleasant taste in our mouths instead. My husband ordered mussels --...More

We stayed at a hotel next to Quay street and they recommended Martine's. It was a little cozy but we received great service and a good meal. It was a little pricey but worth the price. There were four of us at dinner and we...More

As a family we have lived and worked on Quay street since 1902 and have a long history of looking after customers with Martine having worked in Margaret Mc Donagh fish shop across the road (McDonagh's Seafood Bar) at a very young age. This tradition was passed on to my brother and I, as we too worked with our mother in her restaurant preparing and serving food. Our family tradition and Galway's Great trading ties with other countries have seeped into the bones of our restaurant and greatly influence everything we do. We believe in local Irish produce prepared simply using traditional and modern techniques from home and around the world.
