Went to this place for their Gin Bar (Over 500) in the restaurant We ordered the Strawberries and Cream which was surprisingly good and the Muff of London Potato Gin.The atmosphere and ambiance were really nice however at times we felt the service was a little slow in terms of putting in orders, refilling drinks and table touches.I still highly recommend if you are in Galway.Dear Guest,I was delighted to read your recent review, we will certainly be using this feedback to improve on our service standards. I was happy to read you enjoyed our strawberries and cream cocktail, I hope you will call in for another in the near future.Kindest regardsDouglas Niland General Manager

My daughter and I spent a weekend in Galway. She was delighted to find a coffee shop that she could have a vegan hit chocolate. There’s a lovely atmosphere here. We had drinks (hot chocolates!, vegan and non-vegan) only but I would recommend this cafe as a lovely place to put your feet up.

We had a family birthday and everything was lovely. From booking to the end was great. There was 19 of us for dinner and there was not one complaint with the food or service. Chris was brilliant on the night and couldn't have been more helpful. The menu had a great selection and the service was excellent. It is in a good location and there is on street parking nearby.

The menu is quite varied and reasonable .Wines are expensive especially when you consider that they are decanted from casks! Staff are very friendly and helpful and most dishes we had were of good quality. Importantly they highlight their steaks on a rock. When I ordered my Rib Eye steak medium rare the waiteress pointed out that you cook it yourself ( no problem). However the steak arrived on the rock and already cooked to medium well done !!Thank you for your lovely review of Restaurant Gemelles, our steaks usually arrive mediumcooked to try to cater for the customers preference of cooking

Reviewed By Ray519

My wife and I had dinner here Saturday evening. The restaurant and bar complex is large and quite interesting. It located downtown and is easy to walk to. The atmosphere is fine.The service was good most of the time.The food was underwhelming at this price point. For example my wife had a dish which was a pork roll with stuffing with bacon rap around it. The idea is ok but the cook was poor. The bacon was raw. I had goat cheese appetizer which was bland and my entree was not very tasty either.I think the kitchen needs to take better care of food prep. If that happens I think the restaurant would be significantly more enjoyable.Dear Ray519,Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of Kirby's Restaurant. Naturally we never are pleased to check our reviews and discover that a customer has been left unsatisfied. As you correctly highlighted, our reviews are usually very positive regarding both service & standard of food, and as such it is to our utter dismay that you did not enjoy your experience with us at Kirby's Restaurant. It is a shame that when our restaurant manager checked your table personally, you did not bring to her attention any issues you may have had. We would always, without exception, do our absolute utmost to rectify any issues that may arise promptly & without hesitation. We acknowledge that you did not enjoy yourselves during your visit, and we do hope that you return to Kirby's and afford us the opportunity to restore your faith in what we have to offer.Warm RegardsEvie Faulkner

Reviewed By HowlnBubba

I feel badly for the few people who say they had a bad experience here, but excellence is apparently the norm. I had heard about this place and came across their quaint exterior just in time for a snack break. Inside the cozy, eclectic place, we were allowed our choice of seats, and had a nice view of the intersection of Cross Street and Quay Street. Service was attentive, but your pie will take a few minutes as they are made to order. The pies range from meal type, some with sides, to dessert pies. We shared an excellent apple pie, with coffee and tea. Prices are very reasonable, and they basically clinched my liking of the place with background music of the entire first Led Zeppelin album - a bold and tasty choice in itself!
