Perfectly prepared, reasonably priced entrees and desserts with friendly and accommodating service. Four in our party had chicken supreme, salmon, and a steak, respectively. Best fish I had in 10 days of Ireland travel.

We were in Galway for a short time while on a Wild Rover tour. We sort of stumbled onto this place while strolling and we are so glad we went in! We were seated right away, and greeted instantly by our super friendly server (who's name I don't remember, sadly, but she was awesome!). She and a lovely gentleman host... More

A group of us performers were in the city with a very short time to find somewhere to get dinner. A local directed us to Maxwell's and we explained our situation. The manager said all meals were cooked to order and took about 15 minutes but he would do his best for us and true to his word the five... More

We ate off the set menu and the choice was excellent. Our choice of belly pork was a good one. We weren't disappointed. The desserts were beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Additionally the staff were friendly and welcoming. We loved it.

Actually feel bad about giving this place a mediocre review because the maitre d' was terribly nice to our group of 9 but the place seems very confused. The decor is confusing, the food contains staples such as rack of lamb (special on the night we were there) and spring rolls so it doesn't really seem to know whatnot is.... More

Ate here on a Saturday night as the place we were heading to was being refurbished. It was a great meal, starter and main meal were lovely, promptly served and the staff were very nice and friendly. Prices were very reasonable too, would definitely eat here again.

Barbaque pork on sourdough, pumpkin soup, chocolate pot, tea or coffee, the daily paper to read, all for 10 euros. Very good.
