This restaurant is located in the heart of Galway but away from the bustle of Shop Street. It's very popular during the summer, when you can sit outside and watch the odd person go by. Open for breakfast from 8a, the Cobblestone specialises in vegetarian food, including quiches and pastas. Tasty fish and meat dishes are also available, as are freshly baked breads, scones and other pastries.
I thought that the food is extremely nice but found the older woman with blonde hair (presumably the owner of the restaurant) to be stern and rude with little or no respect for her customers and quite abrupt, any nice behaviour following our meal was solely because we were putting money in her hand, it's a pity she was so sour because it cancelled out the quality of the food for me and my friends.
I have to agree with Stephen below, I am a regular visitor to The Cobbelstone Cafe in Galway City and I think the place is fantastic on all levels. The atmosphere is inviting and extremely friendly, the staff are not only helpful but dedicated to providing me with the best service possible time and time again. As well as telling a tale or two from their birds eye view of Galway City. On the food front, the selection, taste and portion size are second to none and I always leave satisfied on all visits. I would recommend this restaurant for a perfect slice of quality service, tasty food and Galway life at its best!!
Having read some of the other comments on this page , i just wanted to say that me and my folks cam over from the states and when asking about for somewhere nice to eat we were pointed in the direction of the cobblestone cafe,we had some rissotto tart to start and it was the best i have ever tasted ,for desert we had some beautifull orange cake.I found the staff very obliging and the portions handsome.we were charged a very fair price for our meal, something insignificant in comparison to other places around this qauint little city,so we headed on our way but rest assured if me or my folks come back to galway again we know where to go for some fine cuisine.
Service was bad, left waiting while single waitress talked to someone after we had ordered. Tuna wrap at 10 euro is the most expensive I have ever encountered. Tuna sandwich tasted good but would have tasted nicer with more tuna in it. Pricing- when I went to pay I was being overcharged by 50%. A dog, while cute is not a suitable "person" in a dining room.
I was looking forward to heading to this quaint cafe which I was told about by my sister in law. I was sorely dissapointed. The owner was incrediable rude, I was surprised to see her apprehending a member of staff and proceeding to cut the portion of cake I had ordered in half.
The cake was delightful, but the portion disgraceful and very overpriced.
Proprietor Kate Wright is a wealth of information about Galway. Everything on the menu is of the freshest and Kate bakes most of the breads and pastries. The food is excellent and a welcome respite from the sometimes calorie heavy Irish cooking. A must stop for the vegetarian tourist. In addition the quaint square on which the restaurant is located can be a welcome change from the bustle of High Street.
