Tartare café + Wine Bar: NATURAL & ORGANIC WINE bar

Tartare is a West of Ireland terroir-based café and wine bar recently opened in Galway’s West End, by husband and wife team JP McMahon and Drigín Gaffey of Aniar and Cava Bodega restaurants. 

All of the dishes on both the daytime and evening menus draw on a wealth of in-season West of Ireland produce. The atmosphere in Tartare matches the food with it’s contemporary, stylish and laid back feel.


The daytime menu focuses on sourdough sandwiches, soup, organic salads and small plates of local oysters, beef tartare and weekly specials. We offer a selection of home-made pastries, served with artisan tea and coffee.


The evening menu brings a more extensive menu of small plates with dishes like: Eel, potato & nori; Tomato, lovage & goat’s curd; Courgette, hazelnut & gooseberry alongside our popular signature dishes of local and native oysters and beef tartare.

The wine list is made up entirely of organic, biodynamic and natural wines. Our wine list is available here.

In addition, the menu celebrates Irish farmhouse cheeses and charcuterie with a selection of boards. All of our menus are updated regularly and are available on our menus page.


In October 2018, Tartare was awarded a Bib Gourmand from the MICHELIN Guide. The Bib Gourmand celebrates simple and skilful cooking, alongside good quality food at a good value.
