Loved Up Valentine’s Menu at Tartare Galway

Tartare Café + Wine Bar is celebrating Valentine’s Weekend this year with a special Valentine’s Day Menu for €39 per person, available from the 14th to the 16th of February.

The cosy, intimate setting and European-inspired décor makes it the perfect spot for an intimate Valentine’s date for two, where couples can enjoy JP McMahon’s signature style of contemporary Irish food.

To kickstart the romance guests will be greeted with a gin, meadowsweet and rhubarb cocktail on arrival, before being presented with Irish charcuterie and farmhouse cheese, pickles and compote to share and enjoy together.

Diners can then select two dishes from the following selection which all draw on a wealth of in-season West of Ireland produce, including beef tartare, pickled onion, smoked egg; celeriac, mushroom broth, pickled seaweed; ham hock, cabbage, smoked potato foam; Burren Smoked Salmon, mustard seeds, sea beats; baby beets, blackcurrant, kale; and beef cheek, smoked black pudding, potato. The menu finishes on a sweet note with chocolate and woodruff mousse and salted caramel.

Tartare Café + Wine Bar’s key focus is on organic and biodynamic wines and offers a carefully curated natural wine menu.

Tartare Café + Wine Bar is part of the award-winning EatGalway Restaurant Group which also comprises Michelin-star Aniar Restaurant and multi-award-winning Cava Bodega. It is owned by husband and wife JP McMahon and Drigin Gaffey. The EAT Galway philosophy encompasses the best of local, artisan and seasonal produce, with an emphasis on ethical eating.

Inspired by their visits to Copenhagen and Berlin, JP and Drigin opened Tartare Café + Wine Bar in September 2017 to showcase the outstanding but underappreciated quality and legacy of oysters and grass-fed beef as local West of Ireland ingredients. The beef tartare and oysters are signature dishes. Affectionately termed Aniar’s little sister, Tartare is located literally across the street from Aniar Restaurant on Lower Dominick Street, Galway.
