This place shouldn't work but it does. I ate there twice this week. First time there was two of us, the second time there was seven of us. It's upstairs over Naughtons bar which is good for a drink before/after dinner. The place itself is the last place you would put a restaurant because not only is it up a flight of stairs, it's also multi-level, and oddly shaped around corners and doors. The coffee machine & drinks fridge are in a broom cupboard. The tiny kitchen is up two more flights of stairs, as are the toilets. I saw one poor waitress drop one of her starters as she came down the stairs and turned the corner. Both nights we had to remove candles and water carriers off the table so we would have space to eat. You might get a table, you might end up on a couch, you might be at a bar. If you are precious about personal space or everyone getting their food at exactly the same time, forget it. This thing is all charm and chaos at the same time. Decor is colourful, knocked together, antique, hand made....I dunno what it is but it's very chilled. The food is really tasty. It's all small plates so if you want a predictable slab of fish fowl or meat this might not be your spot. Over two sittings I tasted salmon, duck tacos, burrata, calamari, short rib and drank from a selection of (over priced) Portuguese wines. I really enjoyed the food variety of the small plates. Each one had something unusual like peanuts with the duck, or some sort of hydrated or infused seed fruit with the burrata. Even though the wine is over the odds the total cost of a meal both nights was ~40 a head. Highly recommended as a laid back night out.

Visited for family dinner last week. Immediately upon entering has a lovely warm, relaxed and eclectic atmosphere. Staff are extremely friendly and efficient. Had a wide variety of food which was all delicious. The menu is designed for a relaxed experience, could have stayed there for hours. Would strongly recommend and will be a regular visitor on all of my trips to Galway. A jewel.

The food was very over priced. The meat was tender but extremely salty. If you are hungry you will need two dishes at least.

Delicious bites. We had four between us. We couldn’t fault any of the dishes. Tapas style. Small menu. Very nice and helpful staff
