The location is fantastic, beside the Spanish Arch in the centre of Galway. The staff were extremely friendly and I liked that the tables were not squashed together. The choice of food is good. The starter was really lovely, the main course was also delicious...More

What a find. Very friendly staff, a quaint stone building beside the water. Small inside & busy but it doesn't matter because the food/drinks/desert is so good it is worth it. The staff & customers are all jolly & accommodating to the coziness. Treat yourself.

One of Galway's most enduring restaurants, housed in one of the city's most iconic restaurant spaces, Ard Bia has always placed as much emphasis on community experiences and aesthetic stimulation as on serving great food in a fun environment. We believe in having roots in a place whilst having an identity that transcends location and takes inspiration from around the world.
