    Excellent atmosphere, lots of space, view into the kitchen. Food faultless, served promptly, and serving staff attentive and helpful without being intrusive. Great choice of meat-based food in main menu and separate vegan menu. Would thoroughly recommend.

    Great location by the river at the Spanish arch. Nice simple modern decor with traditional features. Good variety on the menu. Food was the best Asian cuisine I've had in Galway. Very ample portions and good quality ingredients at an average price. Definitely recommend.

    Servers were really nice but service was so slow. It took a really long time to get out order taken. It also took a long time for drinks, starters, and mains to come out. The starters were lovely but the main courses were only ok.

    Delicious, unique food and standout cocktails you won't find in other restaurants in Galway. The fresh fruit bubble tea was great also. Definitely recommend. Only thing to be aware of is the seats aren't the comfiest/ don't have back support. Should be fine for most people

    This is a nice place in Galway to grab a bite but I have to say, the food wasn't amazing, it didn't blow our minds. It was good but nothing special. The quantity for the price is good value but the meals were kind of plain overall. A good thing to note though is that they have gluten-free and vegan options, which can be tricky to find in other restaurants.

    Restaurant renovation is stunning. Staff were very nice. Excellent vegan options. The two main courses were delicious however none of the other dishes were very good. One dish was forgotten. All had finished eating by the time it came out. Staff were very apologetic. Would give it another try because of this.

    Booked for dinner on a Saturday night and the place was busy. Noise levels were a bit too much for us (had to shout to hear each other and the staff) - music was loud, added to the chat buzz going around the restaurant. The place itself looks nice, they are new so they’re still adding to the interior. Food was okay, servings are big and they look fancier than your usual asian restos/takeaway (definitely more expensive too). Starters were GREAT, but we were a bit disappointed in 1 of the 2 mains we ordered. The sea bass didn’t seem fresh (had a bit of a smell), and for 24€ you’d expect it would be. The red braised pork belly was nice warm and we got it for takeaway due to the portion being big and it didn’t smell nice the morning after. All the staff were great, though, and very friendly and professional. Overall, I wouldn’t be rushing back here for the food or ambience.

    Good choice of starters and main courses. Disappointing wine list, seems to be more energy put into cocktails. They looked really good but personally I like a glass of wine with my food. The wine we chose from a very small choice wasn’t available. Would recommend this restaurant for a night out with friends but not for a couple going out for a romantic meal

    It was our 1st time visiting Renao. We hadn't been here since it was Lime (26 months previously) so we were excited but nervous, as I find it hard to find decent Vegan options. We needn't have worried. Whereas Lime has a lovely selection of Vegan food, Renao has a full Vegan menu. It also boasts a fully Vegan kitchen - something I've never heard of in restaurants that also serve meat. Definitely a 1st for Galway. We were spoilt for choice with the menu. It took us a good 20 minutes to decide on our meal & we changed our minds a few times before settling on the Spinach Dumpling, the Crispy Tofu Jiamo (Bao Bun), the Sizzling Vegan Duck & the Vegan Nasi Goreng. To say the food was stunning is an understatement. It was absolutely delicious & the portion sizes were huge. The service was amazing. The ambience is lovely & relaxing. Our meal (2 starters, 2 mains, 2 huge sides, 2 pints of beer, a dessert & a fancy mocktail) came to a very reasonable €89. Honestly, the food was devine & we really enjoyed it. This is our favourite Galway eatery & we are counting down the days until the weekend so we can go back to treat ourselves again.

    We were in the centre table and it was really loud . We had to lean towards each other to be heard. Seats/stools were a little hard ,lol . Staff were lovely and very friendly. The dizzling duck could have done with more vegetables & less oil around the veg it was served either. Wine was v g - €35 Italian Red..

    Had a lovely meal with friends. Has an extensive separate vegan menu. I had the vegan nasi goreng and a margarita, both of which were delicious. Staff were attentive and friendly. Unfortunately we were seated on outside patio chairs, even though we were inside, which were not very comfortable. Also there were a few large group bookings and given the very open plan the noise level was very high.

    The food was good, although not the best I have ever had. The portions are quite big and the dishes very colourful, which I loved. There were only few glutenfree options, unfortunately. The table we were sitting at was quite uncomfortable as there wasn't enough room for the legs. The staff was very friendly and patient despite the bust time. Overall a nice experience.
