Fine dining at great prices

Thu, Dec 04, 2008

I heard through the grapevine that Stefan Matz, the executive head chef from Ashford Castle, had taken charge of the kitchen at the g Hotel. Stefan was the person who created the excellent value/quality menu at Cullen’s restaurant in the grounds of Ashford Castle and I wondered if he would bring a similar offering to the g Hotel. He is also responsible for all the kitchens at Ashford Castle and has many serious awards to his credit including the Georgina Campbell chef of the year in 2007. Suffice it to say that the g is now a must visit for all food lovers and indeed for anyone who perhaps looked in those glittering windows and thought “I can’t afford to go in there”. The main covers are priced at €19 to €32 and that includes your vegetables. That, my friends, is very, very, competitive, and an example of what is on offer is black sole with crab meat in a velvet crab sauce for €25, and venison with redcurrant cream and crisp venison mousse for €22. Starters range from €6.50 to €15.50 and include inventive dishes to suit every palate.

Il Folleto brings a bit of Italy to Quay Street

Thu, Dec 04, 2008

New Italian restaurant Il Folletto on Quay Street really is little Italy in the heart of Galway. As you walk in the door straight away you are transported to a warm summer’s evening in southern Italy. The traditional rustic appearance and precise attention to detail really is something to behold. Nothing has been left to chance in creating a warm inviting homely Italian welcome. From freshly imported Italian cured meats, cheese, and pastas to full bodied or lightly fruity Italian wines from the extensive wine menu, everything is the real deal. Even the staff are Italian!

Every item on the menu is planned and researched to perfection bringing to Ireland the absolute best of Italian food that has never been experienced in an Irish restaurant before.
