I felt a little rushed by waitress to order. She came to table 3 times while we were still looking at menus but service was excellent. I ordered from early bird menu . The food was very tasty any good generous servings. Pan fried chicken was delicious. Meringue nest with fresh fruit disappointing. Over all good value

We visited Currans on a Friday night and that meant no early bird menu available at 8pm but it was still good value for money, the waitress could not have been more helpful, even offering to take back the desserts if people did not like them, when they couldn't make their minds up. The pizza was really good and the chocolate fudge cake was great and really moist. The new decor is lovely and really changes the place for the better, overall excellent!

Myself and my friend took a quick lunch bite here because it is handy for her work. I had been here before about a year or two ago up in the rooftop terrace and thoroughly enjoyed the food and heady atmosphere but things have changed since then. I'm afraid our waitress was somewhere else, not with us at all, she took our order but no smile, interest or hint of warmth was relayed our way. My friend asked what juices were available and it turned out that the three listed on the menu were not available and just orange juice in stock. My friend ordered the seafood salad and I a create your own pizza, three toppings for €9.95. The seafood salad was very sparse, hardly any salad and covered mostly with a brown fish(not Tuna and not to my taste) that was ice cold from the fridge and lacked imagination(a sauce or something maybe might be nice) there was one lonely prawn and some smoked salmon wrapped up in the corner. It looked unappetising, my friend was disappointed but didn't feel comfortable saying anything she was in a rush to get back to work also. My pizza came with a salad which had this non de script off pink glue like dressing splayed on top, I didn't eat that but chewed on the cucumber. Pizza was 7 inches, dry and nothing special. The atmosphere is gone from this place, the supervisor , who used to be such a cheery gent took little interest in us when we went to pay our bill. The best thing about this place...oh Gosh that is hard...the cola had ice cubes and was refreshing...the least...the lack of imagination and quality in the food and the uninterested 'morale at an all time low' staff. I lament the old Curran days!

This place is more like a pub restaurant but without the pub - they don't have a drinks licence altough there website has a full wine menu. After being seated and served we were told there wasn't a wine list but that if we went up the road to the off-licence they'd serve that (corkage €4). I went up but the off-licence was closed that evening. They should have it in black and white on their website that it's a BYOB place. The atmosphere wasn't great either. It is a big enough place but the other 6 diners were spread around the restaurant giving it a dead feel. For starters we shared the ribs - they were only o.k., and for the main we both had the thai red curry. The main was more your usual Irish pub curry than a thai curry. It wasn't great value either - maybe if it was an early bird but I didn't see any of these menus. For the price and quality of the food I'd go elsewhere although there isn't a whole lot of choice in the area. The cinema was around the corner - that was our reason for going that evening.

called in for a very quick lunch with a friend, as it's near the Mercy Hospital. Arrived around 1.35, and the service was fast. the sandwich selection is not great but it will do, the rest of the lunch menu is extensive if a little overpriced. The toasted special came with the choice of salad or chips and feeling very naughty i chose the chips, big mistake, frozen fries over done and woody..uugh. My friend chose the BLT bap, bap really floury but looked dry and was! he chose salad, not great.. cold pata salad that had seen better days, and the colslaw was over mayo'd! The staf were efficient but that 's as much as could be said. The bill came to €16, with tea, a little over priced for the poor lunch received, especially considering the bar food near by.. pity

Myself and my husband went for Sunday lunch here last week and it was really great. Food was delicious just as described in menu and was really reasonably priced. We thought it was really good value for money. The best part of our experience was the service, they got this new system in where you just press a button on the table when you want service. It was brillent as soon as we pressed the button there was a waitress down to us in less than a minute. Fantastic! Wish all restaurants would follow suit. Decor was great so interesting reading all about where each articifact came from. We really enjoyed our experience the staff were so nice and helpfull. Overall we really enjoyed our dining experience and will be back.

Went for dinner with 4 other friends after a movie at the nearby cinema. Nice decor, loads of antique from the city with a lot history all around the place. Nice and cosy ambience. Ordered the seafood pasta, not too creamy and generous with the fish, just the way i like it. Others had lasagne, absolute chicken, burger with goat's cheese and steak, everyone loved their food, simple stuff but delicious. No long wait for the food. Friendly and courteous staff. They've even got a wireless call bell on the tables to get the staffs' attention if in need of anything. Overall more than satisfied, will definitely go again especially since the pricing is not too bad and the quality is there.
