Had a two course meal here arranged by a hen company. It was a set meal with a good choice of food. The mash was a bit spicy though, so avoid if you do not like spice. The lemon tart for dessert was gorgeous, I had two! There were a good few other large groups here at the time, so... More

Regularly have lunch here. Great value and quality of food is good. Was there again today and it was again very good. €9.95 for main course is really good value. Service was also good.

Eat here regularly if having meetings in town. A great place to bring clients as the food and service is always great. Head Chef is really helpful and willing to accommodate dietary needs. One of the finest spots in Galway for a bite.

Stopped by for dinner on trip to Galway. Waited a fair amount of time before being served. Had fish which was a little spicy. Fries were excellent.

Great lunch menu, excellent service, great value right in the heart of Galway, on Eyre Square a stone's throw from train/bus station.

Short of clients. Simple food and indifferent service. Lots of space, clean decor bit a bit dated. Not a place to impress your friends.

I was staying at this hotel in Galway and wanted something quick and convenient. I ate at the Imperial bar in the evening time. The staff were attentive, friendly and efficient. I ordered a steak sandwich medium and had a beer on the side. Food was delivered and was very tasty, steak cooked perfectly, fries and salad. It cost about... More

We got basic, good dinners which immediately did the trick and set us up nicely for the day strolling around the city and enjoying the pre-Christmas atmosphere. If I... More

If how full a place is with the locals , is an indicator of how good it is, then this place is pretty good!! It was packed but we found seats [ there were 6 of us]. The waitress was very helpful and the food was very good.

Thank Gill M
