    On arrival we were told that the Gaslight Brasserie does not open during the week and we were moved to the Oyster Bar at the other side of the hotel. This is not where I would have chosen and would have liked to have been informed before our arrival as we were 8 people and would have been hard to rearrange on the spot. After we settled in it took a very long time for someone to come and take an order even for drinks and then an equally long time for the order to come. The same has to be said for the food order. The girl that was serving us was very nice and did apologise many times for the waiting. When the food arrived it was below average and some meals were cold. It was difficult to get any attention as the servers were busy and inexperienced. They offered to replace the cold food but the replacements were worse than the original so we just decided it was better to leave. The hotel is clean and decorated very nicely and it’s location is superb but I would not recommend eating there.

    We booked a table here for dinner which was totally unnecessary since the place was completely empty except us and one other party. It is located inside an upscale hotel which looks nice for afternoon tea or their oyster bar but wasn’t worth a trip out for dinner. They only seem to care about their hotel guests that eat there.

    We had a lovely evening for two people. The cocktails are exquisite, the service was friendly and took very good care of us, the meat and Cod fish that we ordered were warm and excellent. Also the atmosphere is lovely. We would recommend the Brasserie to anyone who likes to spend a nice evening. Elo & Chris

    Absolute shitehole. Food was muck and the staff spent their time giving freebies to the couple beside me, dropping f bombs in front of my young kids. Also, it wasn’t gaslight brassiere, the were working out of their oyster bar and not telling you when you booked. The most uncomfortable seating to have dinner. I’m still angry over the experience.

    The food was excellent. However, we had a 9pm reservation (that is all that they had available) and the wait staff was literally cleaning up the restaurant for closing while we were dining. I don’t mean just wiping down a table, they were getting ready to close. Very distracting and felt unwelcoming

    Service was friendly and the wine was lovely but unfortunately the food was a disappointment and I found it overpriced when comparing the value and quality. The prawn and salmon starter had only 1 single prawn in it, small piece of smoked salmon and a small piece of salmon that smelled so fishy I was afraid it might have gone off and did not eat it. For the price of 14€, I did not feel like I got value for my money. My partner had the steak (30€) and was quite disappointed with the quality of the meat and the flavours. I had the beef (19.50€), and we both agreed it was nicer than the steak, however, the portion was mainly mash with not much sauce at all. You can find same quality portions (beef/stew/mash) in Galway for about 15€. Overall the experience was nice, we would have expected the quality of the food to be a lot better though considering the prices.

    On our 1st night in Galway, with our granddaughter, we decided to eat at someplace special. We were not disappointed. Everything was delicious and the service was excellent. If we were staying longer we would definitely have gone back. Our granddaughter ordered the salmon, my husband ordered the fish and chips and I ordered the gnocchi. They shared a bottle of Pinot Noir (The Edge) and loved it. Not a drop was left. My granddaughter and I split the beetroot salad for our appetizer. I will repeat, everything was delicious.

    The service was exceptional. The food was different than we have had in other places in a very good way. We ordered regular restaurant food and were served new versions of dishes served in most establishments. I would be happy to send anyone to you. It has been some time since I was as impressed.

    My partner and I ate dinner here yesterday evening and I absolutely loved it. I don’t eat meat only fish and I find I am usually stuck for things to pick from menus in most restaurants but I had at least 3 options from starters and mains. Quality of food really was outstanding. Waiting staff were great, very attentive and observant to give you the best service, the Hardiman is now my favourite place to eat in Galway. Also my partner is a chef and can be hard pleased and a hard critic but I have to say I couldn’t fault this place. Good location also with lots of parking nearby.
