Martine's Restaurant Galway

Martine's Restaurant Galway Review

With its red walls, its mahogany bar topped by a Victorian mirror, and Otis Redding crooning in the background, this cozy bistro-style wine bar is an excellent option for those evenings when you just want a simple meal nicely served in a pleasant ambience. Beyond the tiny wine bar are two more dining areas; go for a window table if you can in order to watch the passersby on busy Quay Street. Typical main courses could be Thai mussels in chili-lemongrass broth with chips, or the tandoori chicken with mint raita, or the splendid beef lasagne. Steaks from the charcoal oven and rack of lamb are also menu staples. Service is warm and attentive, even at the busiest times. For dessert, regulars recommend the bread and butter pudding, or opt for the fabulous affogatto—a scoop of vanilla ice topped with hot espresso.
