I recently attended here just last friday with my girlfriend and her family there was 7 of us in total. We all ordered drinks which were 3 glasses of wine and 4 pints of beer.The waitress came over with the order the glass of wine was not barely touching half way and we were told that they didnt do pints and yet the table behind were drinking pints of guinness !,I then asked for a bottle 2 bottles of wine to get more value for money then we were told they didnt sell it by the bottle only class what a way to make money !,We had all ordered are main course's and i asked for a 10 oz steak with my surf and turf instead of the 6oz when it came out it was smaller than the 8oz, I complained to the manager and he insisted it was an 10 oz and because we had a chef dining with us he argued also it was too small for a 10 oz, The manager then advised he would bring out more meat how ridiculous is that the place was empty for a Friday night there for atmosphere was crap and the bill came to €478.00 for 6 starters 7 main course's which 2 were fish dishes and 2 bottles of house wine and 6 beers which i feel is a rip off for the service and presentation of the meal

I choose the eden on sunday 2 weeks ago, We got there and waited about 15 mins for waitress to notice 5 people sitting around the table with nothing in front of us. The waitress finally came over got us drinks and we ordered something quick like a platter of food and some garlic bread and fried bree, I was the first to take a bite of the chicken gougons and to my horror it was pink as salmon in the middle and still raw, I nearly through up, I complained to the waitress and with that she advised would bring out a fresh platter which then came out with cheap processed chicken nuggets, I advised we were not going to accept this and asked for the manager to advise him we were not happy with the service and food and we had lost our appetite his apology was poor and we left PUB OF THE YEAR ! I dont think so
