We go to Alvito's regularly and we are never disappointed. The food is absolutely fantastic and the service is 1st class. The credit crunch menu is excellent value. For just under 20 euro you get a starter, main, icecream, tea/coffee and 1 beer/wine. The only thing I would like to see is a change to that menu-maybe some specials. The menu only includes pasta, rissoto and pizza. Fish and meat could be included andpay a subsidy. Apart from that its always great.

We ate in the courtyard restaurant recently and were seriously unimpressed.We walked in and were completely ignored by both bar and waiting staff. When we eventually had to ask 'Do we seat ourselves?'. We had not booked a table so we were seated in the reception area. It was cold and had no athmosphere. We were given a board of dry, stale bread whilst we looked at the menu. We each ordered the rib eye steak cooked medium. When they came out both were over done. The seasonal vegetables were literally swimming in butter! The only nice element to the meal was the pepper sauce. The cost of these 2 meals plus 2 glasses of wine was 65euro! We went into the bar afterwards for a drink. Much to my shock I saw that Thursday nights were ladies night in the restaurant-2/3 courses plus a cocktail for 20euro total. I was annoyed we had been ripped off and not informed of this. Won't be going back.

The Ballyneety Bar
The Lucan Spa Hotel, Junction 4A, Westbound N4, Lucan, Lucan, Dublin

I am just back from the worst dining experience of my life. Having read previous reviews about The spa (Hanora D) I thought it sounded ok. The menu seemed like it was good value, but when the food arrived it definitely was not. We had seen others send back food, but at this point we had ordered and we didnt have the time to go elsewhere. We also saw a pint of guinness given to a man in a filthy glass. The bar girl simply gave him a piece of tissue to wipe it clean! I ordered the vegetable stir fry with noodles, my partner ordered the beef burger. We sat at the bar. After quite a wait the food arrived-packet noodles and an extremely dry looking burger. The noodles were not cooked, packet sauce and flavourless vegetables. The burger was dry and the frozen chips way too overcooked. Never once were we approached to see if everything was ok. In fact we were ignored by the extremely rude bar girl. When we eventually called someone to explain there were no apologies made, however the food was taken off our bill. Disgusting. Will never go back.
