We decided to treat ourselves to brunch today in Dela Restaurant in Galway. It is actually somewhere that I had not visited before which after being I am shocked at! The entire experience was just five star – from the service and the food.
We arrived just before 10am and got seated straight away with menus and chilled lemon water (delish!). The restaurant itself is just an Instagram dream! Rustic wooden tables, an open stone wall and a tree in the middle of the room! The tree added such a unique element to the premises and quite the talking point at our table.
And onto the food… Kerrie (from Bella and Vogue) got the pancakes with maples syrup and strawberries as did I. I can never resist pancakes for brunch! Kieran (The Galway Player) got the Brunch Burrito. The food was delicious and super fresh which is not surprising since they try and use their own produce where possible. They describe their food as inspired by the Scandinavian style of eating with an Irish twist which is quite unique.
One piece of advice is to get there early if you are going for brunch as this place fills up. There was a queue at one point and that was at 11am. This place is popular for a very good reason so do plan in advance as there is not really a waiting area per say in the restaurant. It always say a lot about a restaurant when the negative is that too many people like it 🙂
You can check out Dela’s Food menus on their website, and they are also on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram! So now next for me… to try their dinner menu options as I was so impressed with the brunch options 🙂
