AWARDS & PRIZES

Good Food Ireland is an industry driven food tourism organisation which was established in November 2006. Many good food operators in a cross-section of establishments all around the island from restaurants to accommodation, pubs to food shops to cookery schools wanted to be recognised and endorsed for their commitment to using Irish, local and artisan food produce. They wanted to share experiences and be cooperatively marketed to the domestic and international tourist. Agriculture and Tourism, two vital economies for Ireland have so much in common and are yet so far apart. Through Good Food Ireland the industry from both these sectors share a common belief and come together as one. Good Food Ireland brings you the visitor or domestic consumer what we believe is the only way to get a true taste of Ireland. Wine Club The Irish Restaurant Awards recognise achievement and excellence in the Restaurant and Hospitality Industry throughout the 32 counties of the Island of Ireland in 21 categories and celebrate all aspects of the Industry from Chefs and Restaurants, Cafes and Gastro Pubs, to Food Producers, Local Food Heroes and Cookery Schools.

Food was very over priced for what you get. We were seated at the door, no restaurant vibe. Felt rushed out the door. Hence to say I won't be returning.

Went here for the early bird dinner last Saturday. First impressions were good: the restaurant is spacious, calm, and the furnishings gives it a luxurious and comfortable feel. I ordered a prawn dish to start. It was well presented and tasted fresh and succulent. For mains I had the talapia fish. It was well-cooked, giving it a satisfying taste and texture. The sauces were delicious. My sister is vegan and had a vegetarian platter. She liked it so much that she took the leftovers home with her to snack on later. The staff are really friendly and accommodating. They put my niece's buggy in their cloakroom and there was plenty of space for her highchair. I'd recommend this restaurant for friends, couples or families.

I went for an early sitting family meal here on saturday night. it is a little bit awkward with a buggy for a young child but otherwise the experience was very excellent. I had lamb kebabs to start and old style chicken curry for main with the dark choclate/banana/ peanut desert. All were absiolutely delicious. Highly recommend.

Lovely but pricey. We opted for the tasting menu which is reasonable value. Food is delicious, very flavoursome and immaculately presented. The service is great and I love that they explain your dish for you and what everything is. Desserts were amazing. Drinks also a bit pricey so only go on special occasions.

Nice dining room with very efficient service. Food was excellent, but the a la carte was quite pricey. We went for an early bird, which was excellent value at €25 a head for the quality of food on offer. There was a slight feeling of being rushed to ensure we were out before 8, but I suppose that's understandable on a Saturday night. There was a good wine list, but again on the pricey side, although not ridiculously so. Overall an excellent meal, but definitely a place to go for a special occasion, not for casual dining. The one complaint I would have about the restaurant is that prices for the a la carte and the wine list are not available online, which makes it difficult for someone who is considering going there to decide whether or not it is within their budget. Maybe their approach is "if you have to ask, you can't afford it" but I would have thought that attitude went out with the demise of the Celtic tiger.

Amazing restaurant. Service was incredible, the waiting staff are so attentive. The food was the best indian food I've ever had. It's more gourmet Indian than your typical Indian restaurant. A lot of the meat is served on the bone, with the rice and sauce on the side. Some of the dishes are a little pricey, but worth it!
