Upstairs @ West Restaurant: Galway

Located in the luxurious AA four star hotel, The Twelve in Barna, Upstairs @ West is chic and stylish, featuring innovative dishes that highlight the region and the season’s best ingredients.

Beautifully lit, flattering and gleaming, with a sweet champagne bar, cosy booths and smooth dark wood, West is a modern take on a classic - a contemporary riff on a New York-style club restaurant. Everything is prepared 'a la minute' and all breads and pastries are freshly made on site in The Pins Bakery.

West Restaurant showcases the finest local produce, sourcing the best wild and cultivated ingredients at the optimum moment of seasonal perfection, prepared and presented in a way that is completely respectful of their individual integrity and totally delicious.

10 minutes from Galway City, on the coast road to Spiddal, the West is very much about wine. One of Ireland's most exciting collections is on display throughout this restaurant and Wine Maker's Dinners are a regular feature.

Come to the West of Ireland, to relax and enjoy life's finer pleasures.

"Fantastic evening!" My husband and I brought my parents to the West restaurant while on a trip to the west of Ireland. The place looks lovely, we had a big comfy table for the four of us. We basically had everything: cocktails (all great, including mine which was non alcoholic), starters (the soup and the goats cheese raviolo deserve a special mention), mains (that steak, my god, it was amazing), desserts, cheese plate and port tasting. I love Ireland and wanted to impress my parents, and I totally achieved that! Service was also fantastic, friendly and helpful, but not overbearing. West restaurant could not have been any better, I warmly recommend it!

"Food and service package was excellent" We were a party of 15 and were excellently catered for both in terms of food and service. I had the smoked ham hock with razor clams and a gorgeous dashi sauce followed by hogget done in three ways. Everyone's spirits were raised by the feast. The bill with desserts and wine came to €850, which was great value. A very positive experience.

"Incredible food, you will not find this standard anywhere else. The staff are so knowledgeable and friendly" Food is consistently amazing - it is so different and unusual , best idea is to trust the chef and have the tasting menu - stunning!! The whole atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and it is a delightful experience.
