    Disappointing meal. Despite being told at seating that we couldn’t request substitutions, several items we ordered had ingredients substituted by the restaurant. Food quality was just not very good in 80% of our meal. Staff worked very hard and were pleasant. They seemed overworked.

    There was a misprint on the menu regarding the type of steak. The steak was tough. We were told by one waiter we were getting garlic potato, but got very salty chips. When we queried we were told there never was garlic potato on the menu. We left the restaurant hungry.

    We booked a table to celebrate our wedding anniversary, unaware at the time that we’d be in Galway during a very busy time (midterm, Macnas parade,rugby, Comedy Festival). At first, I thought our special evening would be ruined by the screaming child (screaming) in the restaurant. Little ones cry, of course, but the parents were oblivious to the fact that it was disruptive. We were told that the party (a large party) would be leaving soon, and they did depart within 15 minutes. The food was great, the service was good, considering they really were slammed with customers. But there were delays with our orders. The manager recognized this, and to her great credit, she made a significant adjustment to our bill. Kudos to her for such generosity during a very stressful evening. The only complaint I have is that the music was too loud and inappropriate for fine dining. Instead of classic rock, light jazz or old standards (like Sinatra) might have worked better. In the end, we had a wonderful anniversary dinner.

    What was once a peerless institution of Galway is now a shadow of its former self. A Sunday afternoon and was told the gaslight was closed due to small booking numbers. What happened to serving Sunday lunch or afternoon tea with the piano playing. Clearly new management have taken more than their eye off the ball.

    We had the breakfast that comes with the overnight stay at the hotel. Food - delicious, fresh, plentiful. Granola/oatmeal/fruit/yogurt + selection of eggs/sausages/bacon, etc. Can have made to order. Staff - best I have ever seen. quietly efficient, any staff can assist at any table, in the background but available quickly Room - bright, clean and quiet. Overall very very good.

    The menu described “crispy chicken skin” on the gem salad but they were soggy and hardly a compliment to the lettuce. The server had to go back to the kitchen to find out what the day’s fish was, inspiring little confidence in her abilities. The Hake dish was bland. For such a nice hotel, the dinner was a disappointment. Oh, and the choice of music was miserable.
