Love the food here. Service isn't very good. Nice surroundings and a good break from the norm. Great selection of different foods to try. Will go again anytime I'm in the area.

First time there last night and it was so so. The tables are a bit cramped and the waiting staff bump into the chair every time they pass. The menu is very complicated with a breakdown of calories and fats with symbols for everything under the sun. Nice selection of food. The idea for full and half portions for each dish doesn't work for a lot of the dishes. We ordered half portions of the starters and they were decent portions whereas for the mains the full portions were somewhat small, what's the point in adding complication. They should reconsider renaming their Bang Bang Chicken to Bland Bland Chicken; paté was so so, the chicken breast was nice as was the mash and veg. Decent wine list. Given the hub of eateries in the area, would only go back if I couldn't get a place elsewhere.

Shelby's Brasserie
73 Main Street, Bray, Wicklow

Nice spot for Bray. Menu is nothing to write home about. Nice layout and some good attempts to draw customers in with the tapas menu and other events. For the area it stands out, prices are a bit on the expensive side.
