I was a regular in Tribes and to be honest, it hasn't really changed (which I am glad). Gorgeous French food. Staff are really lovely and it's just a lovely place to dine. The manager/owner could crack a smile every now and then :) He is friendly though! Love this place.

This is a fantastic restaurant. The service and atmosphere is great and the food is always fantastic. I have been here many times as Tribes and now as Le Petit Cochon. It's also fantastic value

I have eaten here a few times since it changed from Tribes which was also an old favourite. Food’s always of an excellent standard with friendly warm atmosphere and excellent service. If I had to improve one thing it would be a wider selection of desserts or a frequent changeover of the menu selection. However I would definitely recommend it and planning my return visit already.

First time here but would definitely return. Tasty food served. It was a busy summer evening, good atmosphere in the place. Service was prompt and attentive.

Living locally I have been to Tribes a good few times and keep forgetting to write a review, it is a great restaurant. The food is to such a high standard and never disappoints. There is an all evening early bird menu which is good value for the quality of food, I agree the starters can be on the small side but they have so many beautiful components flavour makes up for it. The staff are always helpful and pleasant and the brown bread is to die for. Only criticism is that the menu could be changed more frequently but there are always a few specials to choose from.

Went to this restaurant which we have frequented many times. This time we were celebrating a birthday. Food was good. Starters were a little bit small - I opted for the scallops and got 2 mini scallops. If the menu hadn't been just an "all night" early bird and i had ordered this starter I would have been reluctant to pay for it. Apart from that we really enjoyed the night and I am passing this remark as constructive criticism.

Ate here for the third time recently. The first two times the service and food were practically flawless and had become my favourite restaurant. However my last visit wasn't as successful unfortunately. Mainly because of the change of menu of which my favourites have been removed! No goats cheese starter so instead I opted for the mushroom ravioli which was overpowered by the rocket sauce. The starter special of a black pudding tarte tatin was poor as was the main special - sea trout with crab and chive risotto (very little crab, too much chives and pretty bland overall). Although the trout itself was delicious as were the prawns. The duck with crushed sweet potato has also been replaced which is unfortunate as its rare to see sweet potato on a menu, and also the fish with gnocchi. Steaks were described as cooked well but the meat itself was a bit tasteless. Our creme brulee was slightly overdone on this occasion although had been delicious previously. However the trio of ice-cream was superb and obviously homemade. Service was still impeccable and staff were very helpful. Will return again however and try some of their newer menu options.

Must say this is a gem of a restaurant, real food at real prices. Every time I've been I've had pork belly and it just doesn't get old. Service is friendly and its most certainly a busy spot. Chef seems to take great care in his plates. A special confit duck salad was on last time I was there, delicious. I also recommend the creme brulee. Going again on Friday and I cant wait

Tribes is a nice spot near the Dart and in the busy village of Glasthule. Went there for the second time in two years since I didn't want to head into town for all the Aviva Stadium traffic. They still always make you feel welcome and place was a buzz on Thursday, and I managed to make the early bird. I had prawns to start and pork belly and a glass of crispy white. I had to try the homemade brown bread ice-cream which was delicious. The bill was ok, still had lots of change for later on. It's great to have a restaurant so near, that you don't need to head into the city for. Wonder where and why the Tribes name. Will ask them next time soon.

This was my second visit to Tribes- I came back for second helpings after my first visit a couple of months ago- I wasn't disappointed! Myself and my partner got a table when we phoned ahead and arrived to a bustling restaurant (which was nice to see midweek). We both had the prawns to start which were nice and juicy and perfectly cooked. I then went for the pork belly which I had had before- it was succulent and tender and actually tasted like the pork I'd had as I was growing up- tenderly cooked comfort food! We both went for the brown bread ice-cream which rounded off our meal well, along with a couple of glasses of a nice Cote de Rhone. I like the warm welcoming atmosphere of this place- and with good food, served well and at a reasonable price, I will certainly be going back for a third visit.

My boyfriend and I came here on a Saturday without a reservation and got a table no problem, but by 7pm the restaurant was full. We were attracted by the all day every day menu of 3 courses for €26. We both had delicious prawns for starter, a very generous portion and the salad that the prawns sat on was very tasty too. For mains I had the vegetarian option of Butternut squash risotto which was very tasty but came with a rocket salad which I felt was a slightly odd combination. He had sea bass for the first time and was very happy, it was simple but cooked perfectly although we thought the supplement for the sea bass was a bit much (€4 i think). Desserts were Creme Brulee and a chocolate mousse pot which didn't live up to the other two courses unfortunately,I think the Brulee had been prepared earlier as the caramelized top wasn't even warm and the mousse was a little dry around the edges. Staff were very nice and friendly and at no point did we feel rushed to vacate the table even though it was a busy Saturday evening. the complementary bread while we looked at the menu was delicious! I'd def come back here for a nice casual meal but maybe not for something special.

Good but not spectacular Brought friends to Tribes. Good thing there was nothing wrong with the food. Sad thing is that nobody felt compelled to go back again. General feeling was that the menu was overpriced for what we experienced and with such a limited menu it needed to be better.

I went to Tribes last Saturday night for my birthday dinner and it was a succes from start to finish. We were a party of 7 and between us pretty much sonsumed most of the menu!! Starters of duck liver parfait, cream of onion soup, black pudding with apple and red onion, tea smoked breast of duck salad and goujons of lemon sole were all tried, tested and thoroughly enjoyed. Not a morsel left on any of the plates. For mains three of the party went for the fillet steak, each were cooked to perfection and served with the right amount of chunky chips. The sea bream looked light and summery and I'm advised tasted fantastic. The hake was beautifully cooked and last but by no means least my lamb. What can I say but melt in the mouth and full of flavour. My only complaint was I wished I had been hungrier as I couldn't finish it all!! We had brought our own dessert - one of my mums infamous coffee sponges YUM!! - but the restaurant very nicely presented it on a decorated plate and following the obligitory and suitably mortifying round of Happy Birthday we all tucked in. The staff were polite, professional and very helpful. The only, only gripe I would have was the restaurant was like a sauna and on a number of occasions I had to hold the front door open to get some air in, a door stop was desperately needed!! All in all with a dozen various drinks the bill came to 245euro including service. Money well spent, I will definately be going back to Tribes!!

There were 5 of us seated at a table for 4, I hate that - really cramped. We had asked for the window seat but did not get it, other tables of 5 were seated at table for 6...so I was annoyed since we have made reservation over 3 weeks prior. That said, the food was really good, the wine good at the price, endless supply of water which is always good. But, then the bill was handed over while we still finishing up drinks, saying that while we should enjoy our drink, they needed the table....there was no-one waiting, and a lots of other free tables. But, again, we will go back since the food is fab and service prompt.
