Dined at the restaurant on a cold wet Friday. The hotel is well presented and friendly and super efficient staff. Unfortunately both the bar and restaurant were empty so the place lacked a bit of atmosphere. We chose from the table d'tote menu and opted for Caesar salad (spelt incorrectly on the menu), which was very nice although surprised that the chicken was left whole and heated, there could have been more lettuce. Mains were a pasta dish served in a skillet and steak cooked to perfection with good sides of mash/veg and chips, and two of the best desserts, homemade apple pie with custard and strawberry cheesecake followed by a great coffee. While the restaurant lacked atmosphere it made up points on the food and friendly efficient staff.

I stayed in the Radisson on a business trip. The dining room is clean and nicely laid out. The evening waitress was friendly and professional. I ordered sirloin steak which was cooked perfectly (I like rare, so half the time the chef makes a mess of it...). I asked for a side of mange tout but they weren't so good...they looked like they had been steamed too early and left to sit. Not a bad dinner but a bit lazy with the simple things. Breakfast was the standard Radisson buffet fare. There was something not quite right about the smoked salmon. I can't put my finger on it but it repeated all morning. The waitress forgot my coffee until just before I was leaving. Poor breakfast. Would I eat there again? No.

I had a lonely dinner in the Tribeca restaurant in the Radisson on a bleak January week night with only myself and two other customers in the restaurant. The restaurant is a typically bland and uncosy which is indicative of most hotels in country towns. Anyway back to the food.. I had the signature scallop starter which was quite tasty, and well presented. The scallops were coated in a crust and were well cooked. I had a fillet stake for mains which was tasteless and which included a bizarre green pesto type watery sauce which didnt do anything for the dish either asthetically or for the flavour. A rich gravy or jus would have been more appropriate. My cheese board comprised of unknown cheeses which were ok. Service was friendly and efficient.

We had a nice night away in the Radisson over the long weekend. As part of the package we got a dinner and decided to go for the Oakk Bar as they had a steak night. It worked out at great value and I really enjoyed my steak and my wifes burger was very good. We both had the same crab cake starter and shared a cheesecake. Had a nice cocktail afterwards and was a pleasant evening. Also had lunch earlier in the day but they don't serve bar food until 3 on a Sunday so had soup and quite nice sandwiches. Definitely worth a go if you are staying in the hotel as its slightly away from the nightlife of main st.

we were celebrating a significant wedding anniversary with a weekend away in Donegal. The hotel itself is very good, great location and very comfortable spacious rooms. We had breakfast in the room each morning and it was of a good standard. As part of the deal we had one evening meal in the Hotel restaurant, the Tribeca. we started with cocktails which was a mistake as it was plain that the barman (who seemed very stressed) didn't know how to make them. We then proceeded to have a lenghty and confusing call with the waitress relating to our "included" meal. If we wanted to eat from the A La Carte then there were extra charges of 5.50 per starter and 10.50 per main course - this wasn't pointed out at time of booking. The food was ok when it arrived but the overall impression was not good. I would definitely stay at the hotel again but i don't think i would have dinner there,

We stayed here for the weekend. Nice hotel for a little break, right in the middle of the retail centre, so great for shopping. We ate in the TriBeca restaurant one of the nights. I had atlantic fishpie to start, nice but could have been hotter. My partner had soup, was happy enough with it. I had steak for main, done to perfection and mashed potato was beautiful. My partner had salmon and was raving about it. I had tiramasu for dessert, very nice and my partner had cheesecake, think he wanted the tiramasu. Nice place to eat, staff a bit stand-office and atmosphere quiet but definately try it.
