Head Chef Byron Godoy reigns from Antigua, Guatemala.  Beginning his career at I.N.T.E.C.A.P Technical Institute in Guatemala City, ​Byron moved to Ireland with his wife, Mary Carroll, in 2014.  They landed on their feet out on the Aran Islands taking over the Bayview Restaurant on Inishmore. 


After four years on the Island, the pair decided to test themselves in Galway City and opened up Sangria where Byron can really get creative with his style of cooking.

Highlighting Latin America, Byron pays tribute not just to his native Guatemalan & Mayan roots, but many Central & South American countries in their traditional and often ancient cooking methods & techniques.

So, if you're in the area, be sure to stop by for a few tapas and definitely a refreshing glass of Sangria!

Buen Provecho!

It is customary to say “provecho”

(proh-veh-choh) before starting a meal

or when you enter or leave the presence of

someone who is eating. Provecho comes

from the word aprovechar, which means

“to make the most of it."
