    my go to place for steak. Galway is sadly missing a dedicated steak house.

    Mc Swiggans, Number 1 hands own the best.

    I have heard good things about Rubin but my first thought was also Blakes brasserie

    FX Buckleys own McSwiggans. I haven't eaten there in years but the steak should be good since they bought it. I'm not aware of anywhere (other than possibly there) that does a good "Steakhouse" style steak in Galway.

    Ruibin is great, not sure I've ever seen steak on the menu though.

    They had filet steak on the menu the last time I ate there. I prefer a cut with nice marbling, like Ribeye.

    I’ve been left severely disappointed and robbed by mcswiggans steak . Another vote here for Blake’s !

    Sister in law had steak in Blake's last night, said it was like butter.

    Myself and my better half ate in Mc swiggans last year and never again. Felt like daylight robbery

    Some nice places in Barna for a steak too

    Rouge, surely? It's a very French restaurant but it's steak is marvellous. ( my terrible Speeling)

    When you're in the restaurant it feels like your in Paris.

    Honestly not sure if that's a positive response or not. I like butter but I'm not sure I'd eat a fillet of butter

  • Registered Users Posts: 236 ✭✭Stone

    While Rouge certainly had the best steaks in town (for the price), I am quite certain they do not do dinners (i.e. steaks) at the moment - they only do bakery stuff and light lunches.

    I do, however, hope they get back to doing their fab dinners !!

    It's a good sign, means steak isn't tough or full of gristle

    They do a very nice steak in the Brasserie but you’re talking nearly €40 for a steak before you even add sides. I wouldn’t pay that for a couple of reasons. Firstly, you can get a couple of fantastic cuts of steak now for a fraction of that. Secondly, steak is a relatively easy thing to cook at home. Even a novice cook should be able to serve up a steak how they like it. There’s only 3 or 4 things to get right. Lash a load of butter in the pan with it if you want to replicate the restaurant.

    I’ve had steak there a few times on company coin and it’s very nice but I wouldn’t spend my own on it.
