Ordered the woodland breakfast would definitely recommend. Service was great from entry to exit. Not the first time I've been here and definitely not the last.

The staff is always pleasant and accommodating. The food is quite good, a decent mix of vegetarian offerings. I meet here with my classmates frequently; it's quite enjoyable.

Discovered by chance, but was blown away by the quality of food & the value for money. Will definitely make an effort to return & also look at checking out their Dublin cousins.

We were seated straight away. Staff were extremely attentive, food arrived very quickly and we were courtesy checked several times. Jamie was our server and he was fantastic. We were in another day and our server was Abaigh who was also amazing. The food was lovely. The team here moved quickly and worked so well together. We will definitely be back.

Honestly the food was amazing. We were in Galway for three days and we ate here for lunch dinner and brunch over the three days. The staff were very friendly. Especially a young boy with short black hair, never got his name, he was working during lunch hours but he was so friendly. Will definitely be back again

Over priced for what it is. €16 for a steak sambo 🙄 No homemade fries in sight. Lovely coffee. Cool looking place but they should drop the Gourmet and keep the Food Parlour

Thanks for your feedback Del. We're sorry to hear that you felt your food didn't provide great value. All of our beef used across our menu is premium Hereford Irish beef, providing quality cuts of meat - which is reflected in our pricing. We're glad you enjoyed the coffee and decor, however, and do hope you'll give us another chance sometime soon. Team GFP

Pleasant experience - found the waiters to be very friendly and accommodating. Starters were delicious - we tried the meatballs and calamari. Mains were average.

Everything was very good.

The only issue I would raise is the following:
In the ladies toilet, the window was open - great, but it needs a security barrier outside as it is very low and a child could easily fall out.

Absolutely lovely food, had the chicken wings for starters. Got both the spicy and sticky bourbon sauce between four of us. The two bowls was more then enough for four people. The bourbon sauce was really good, so much so that we got portions of it with our main to dip chips into. The burgers and curry were lovely. Desert was also brilliant the Nutella cheese cake was extremely tasty. Overall this restaurant had some of the best food I have eaten in an Irish restaurant in a long time. Would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be back.

Btl of water had dirt floating around in it and there is a taste off the tap water in Salthill in general. Tea pot and glass were dirty. Food itself was good. Too warm where we were seated also.
