Excellent value for money. Best food i have had in a long time. Very accommodating as one of our party had special dietary requirements. Definitely will be back.

Really enjoyed meal here. Service was really good, there were 6 of us and all really liked the food. Waiter recommended a lovely bottle of wine too.

I walked in with no reservation on a Saturday night around 7:30 with my husband and 2 children. I was greeted with a smile and shown a table straight away. The restaurant was nearly full, but not quite. The menu had good variety, and the staff couldn't have been nicer to my children. We all enjoyed our dinner, and left happy. My children had Caesar Salad from the children's menu, and I had tomato sauce pasta with chicken, bacon and pepper. It was just so nice. My husband had carbonara. I think my tomato sauce pasta was much nicer. We all had a main and dessert (No drinks), and the bill only came up to about 60 euro. Very reasonable. I liked the fact that the staff didn't keep on asking us if we wanted drinks. They asked at first, then they didn't bug us no more. I will definitely visit again if I find myself in the vicinity.

Had the meal yesterday . Lovely atmosphere, staff friendly. Early bird menu looked good value. Bread a little burned. Carbonara sauce a little light. Chicken Masala could have been cooked for another minute or two. Not too bad but room to improve. Happy with reservation made and maybe we'll be back.

My husband and eat in Sirocco Restaurant about once a fortnight. We invariably enjoy our meal. I like the fish, especially the monk fish with sauce on the side and the roast potatoes and salad. My husband says the steak is to die for. For starters I enjoy the small caesar salad and he loves the fungio al Agio. Their risotto is excellent and they do a mean pizza! The carafe of wine is good value. Nobody hurries the customer out. It is a relaxed place. My family and celebrate lots of birthdays in Siroccos.

Dined here on a very cold Saturday night. The restaurant was full when we arrived so being sat next to the door would have been nice to have been told 2 hours before when we reserved. Anyway we decided to have the Mussels and the Funghi All’Aglio. The Funghi All’Aglio was nice but my Mussels was just awful. There was no seasoning or even any salt taste amazingly enough from the mussels and it was so far an effort from a garlic white wine sauce it was shocking. For mains we had the Linguine Dello Chef and the Sirloin Steak. The Linguine Dello Chef was not great and wasn't finished. The Steak was over on one half of it. Again no seasoning on the mains. Overall the food was poor with no seasoning. The service was appalling. We stood at the door for 3 minutes and staff just looked at us. Nobody asked us during our meal if everything was ok. When were leaving none made an effort to say goodbye. It was as if they didn't want our custom. Overall very poor and will definitely not return.

Went to this really popular restaurant in town for a celebration dinner with a few friends and had the most amazing night! Staff were so friendly and efficient. We tried some pastas, juicy steaks and their specials of fishcakes and monkfish.. Wow! House wines were really good and very reasonably priced and their home made tiramisu is to die for! Will be back again and again..

Sirocco's is hugely popular in town, but I am not sure why as I find it nothing beyond mediocre. It's the standard exported Italian fare dumbed down for the Irish palate. Service can range from non-chalant to absolutely wonderful, but the inconsistency of this place lets them down. Stick to the steaks!
