Dean is Galway's worst barman. On a busy Saturday night he was totally unable to cope so he was rude and ignored anyone who complained. At the end of the night I tried again to speak to him...his only response.. why don't you review me on tripadvisor. ..so here here it is as asked Dean.

I visited Massimo with a Friend tonight and it was great! The Steak was awesome and the Chorizo and Pork burger was the best burger I've had in Galway. Everything was seasoned perfectly and the sauces were delicious. It is definitely the best bar food in Galway and while the prices are the same as many others, the quality and... More

Ate here again with family recently and can honestly say it keep delivering. Good service, great menu (Chorizo burger was just fantastic), duck fat chips and great value. The quality of food is terrific and I love the wooden boards for service and home made ketchup. Top tunes playing too. Ample space out the back for parties too.

4 people looking for a place to grab a bit and watch Ireland play Canada in the Rugby over the "west end" of Galway City. We were pointed in Massimos direction as Monroes was packed. Was really impressed with the game coverage, food and service. There's a nice character to the place between the sports, music, food and decor. We... More

A short walk from the main drag of Galway, Massimo is well worth the extra walk. The restaurant has a great vibe and was perfectly setup for the Euro 2016 festivities when we visited. The food was absolutely amazing with the steak, fries and salad being up there with the best you will ever have, add in a cold pint... More

Great staff and nice cozy bar. Really liked the local brew Galway Red and Blue and enjoyed the best sandwich on our trip in Ireland : Collaran's ham hock. Even back in the states I'm still talking about this place.

We had dinner and beer after a long drive. Very relaxing atmosphere and high quality food. My husband and I both had battered cod and were impressed by the freshness of the fish. My sister had the beef and stout burger. She says it's the best burger she's had in her life. We plan to return so that I can... More

Love the New decor and menu. Mussels were possibly the nicest I've had in a long time. Decent sized portion too , it satisfied two of us easily. Only complaint was that although our initial waitress was friendly,we had to go fetch our own cutlery and napkins. Wanted more bread and drinks but there was nobody to ask. Still it... More
