Greene's Cafe & Bistro
63 William St, Limerick City, Limerick

Went here with my kids for tea was met with, we have very little left so we asked for egg and chips but a fried egg was not possible so we settled for scramble instead we also asked for sausage and chip and I asked for a portion of chips oh my god what came my portion was in a tiny glass bowl ny two kids got side plates you could count the chips on both there was an after taste from the chips the egg was grand for a microwave that is and the deep fried sausages were ok too we also got minerals which were a bit flat, I am shocked with this standard of food from a so called bistro never never never would be too soon to go back we paid over $18 euros for this I felt robbed

Cornstore
40 Cornmarket Street, Cork City, Cork

Having dined in the Cornstore in Limerick a few times we said we would try the cornstore in Cork, a bit disappointing I must say overall, the service when we got it was very swift but we had to chase it to get it, food was average enough, dessert was nice though, a bit pricey for what we got but when in Rome.....

Glenlo Abbey Hotel
Bushypark, Galway City, Galway

stayed here for s couple of overnights and dined in the hotel , not bad at all, the menu could have been a bit more varied but it was very nice and they did not skimp on the servings, I know the hotel is going through a bit of a rocky patch but I hope to return as overall I was impressed.

Joels Restaurant
Newlands Cross, Naas Road, West Dublin, Clondalkin, Dublin

A real BIG BIG disappointment here, as a family we stopped here for a meal at least twice a month but the last two or three times we have been very disappointed, presentation poor service average food very average portion sizes greatly reduced prices expensive for what you get, this place HAD it all but seems to have slipped lately the marketing seems to be more party orientated then customer focused. May give it one more crack just to see if things improve

Joels Restaurant
Newlands Cross, Naas Road, West Dublin, Clondalkin, Dublin

I go back here time and time again this place is a real winner in every respect, good food great service, real buzz about the place and not over the top on price...my only gripe would be their wine per glass is expensive but this is greatly over shadowed by all the other great things. Will be back again and again......

Texas Steakout
116 O'Connell Street, Limerick City, Limerick

Went here for a meal with the family and was not blown away to be honest, service was good and fast but quality of food I think has slipped, portions were small too, a bit pricey also.

Azur
8 Georges Quay, Limerick City, Limerick

went here again for a special event meal with friends yet again faultless, I know other reviewers seem to have had problems but to be fair if i was in a hurry i wouldn't wait an hour and a half for a meal i would just go, in general i could or would not knock this place and I too eat out every weekend so i guess if you looking for problems you will find them. Keep up the good work Azur....!

Navajo Spur Steakhouse - Closed
Unit 24X Crescent Shopping Centre, Dooradoyle, Limerick

went here today for lunch it and it was quite busy, the atmosphere was electric BUT and a BIG BUT.... that was all that was good we waited nearly an hour for basic food that was way overpriced.....complained to the manager but it fell on deaf ears all we got was we are very busy but three sets of tables who came in after us were served before us...so frustrating. WILL NOT BE BACK......!!!!!

The Clubhouse - Closed
Trinity Rooms, Michael Street, Limerick City, Limerick

Met a customer here for coffee, as it was cold I had soup and brown bread, really disappointing soup tasted processed the bread was brittle and the butter like ice as a result it was a messy lunch. Service was ok but overall I would not be rushing back........

Cafe on the Row

O'Connells
Newtown, Annacotty, Limerick

Met a friend here for lunch as he was in the area, really busy spot, very friendly staff who actually enjoy what they are doing, you can see that by how organised they are, I had forgotten how much of a fussy eater my friend was but nothing was a problem for them. The portions are real generous and very very reasonable in price. Good food....good price....fool proof.

City Wok
Ashdown Centre, Courtbrack Avenue, Limerick City, Limerick

Had a family Sunday lunch here, food was really tasty and plenty of it BUT the service is a little hit and miss, like side orders coming when you have your main meal eaten But to be fair the place was busy. I will come back though as I know the place has changed hands, as you can tell from the food too it is not processed....!!

First Floor, 28 O'Connell Street, Limerick City, Limerick

Brought a friend here for lunch as a birthday treat and I must say I found the whole experience was really good, top quality Indian, no processed food here for sure, busy little spot for lunch too, which to be fair is always a good sign. I've been told their take away is as busy. Will come back for an evening meal sometime.

Russells Select Bar
Fr. Russell Road, Dooradoyle, Limerick

went here for lunch on friday, busy spot food was only average though, service was a little abrupt, also if you are coming here bring a torch the lighting is wicked, was here a few months back but the food was better then, different chef and new owner I think. Might try it again in a couple of months

Pizza Hut (Cork)
Market Square, Market Street, Mallow, Mallow, Cork

brought the kids here for a treat, not impressed the floors under the tables were dirty with previous customers food, the portions were small, the kids got wraps which were welded together, my youngest needed to go to the toilet and what an adventure that was...it is not easy to find and by God you would not want to be bursting to go. Anyway fast food is fast food but I dont think I would go here again pity really as the one in Limerick is top class

Eddie Rockets - (Limerick)
115 O'Connell Street, Limerick City, Limerick City, Limerick

brought my two boys here for a meal as we always like this place for a good feed in a buzing atmosphere, the atmosphere was buzzing the staff were prompt and friendly but I must say the food has slipped slightly, my son who to be fair is real easy to please ordered sausage and mash was not impressed the mash tasted processed and the sausage was actually hot dog the bowl it was served in was chipped in several places also his diet coke was flat I asked for a chocolate malt but it did not taste that way also you used to get it served in a metal cup and there was always enough for a cup and a half now its served in a red plastic tacky glass, my tenders were pale and not as tasty as they usually are also the chips were soggy and lacked taste. Terrible I know but I will come back as this is normally the case here but please take note..!!

St Joseph's Road Mallow, Mallow, Cork

what a nice place this is, stumbled accross this place by accident, its a real little treasure chest of memrobilia inside, I was amazed by the amount of old world bits and bobs they have.

Good Friends Restaurant
13 New Street, Killarney, Killarney, Kerry

Had dinner here on Sunday, it was very quiet when we got there which made me a bit nervous, we were shown to a table and prawn crackers given to us while we were looking through the menu, these were stale however the food was good, I had a beef satay which I must say was top class. My kids were happy with what they got, so all in all not bad. The bill was a bit pricey but hey your in Killarney so eat up or shut up.

The Wild Geese
Rose Cottage, Adare, Adare, Limerick

I went here for a meal with a friend to give it another go so to speak, was disappointed the last time overall, this time where as the overall look of the place is quite plain the food was actually ok. Not a bad price either we went for the earlybird special. Will give it another go soon to see if the standard is constant..!

Chocolat
109, O'Connell St, Limerick City, Limerick

Why oh Why can you not get a cold glass of water here....!!!!

Eddie Rockets - (Dooradoyle)
22 Crescent Shopping Centre, Dooradoyle, Dooradoyle, Limerick

Just back from eddie rip off's I mean Eddie rockets..! Menu is fairly good for a fast order retaraunt, kids stuff can be very processed though. I had the chicken tenders which are tasty, there chips are tasty but do leave a bit of an after taste. Service is fairly good considering the place was hopping, pity they dont have a toilet in house you have to leave and use the shopping centre toliet which when you're on your own is not a problem but with two kids and a mountain of shopping bags it is a it of a problem. Like the name suggests it is a bit of a rip off though, the theme is 50's diner but the prices are very 21st century All in all with kids it is comfortable as its noisey before you arrive so you'll blend in nicely....!

Hamptons Grill
Henry Street, Limerick City, Limerick

Had a surprise birthday party dinner here, which my wife organised, service was good atmosphere was very loud but lively I must say though the portions were small and well to be honest only alright This was the general feeling from the group too as there was ten of us here.!

Corbett Court - Charleville
Ballyhea, Charleville, Cork

stopped here on the way back from west cork on sunday for a family meal. The place was hopping, with staff running around trying to look after everyone. After a short wait we ordered our meal, my wife had Salmon which was really dry, I had chicken Kiev which was really nice but a small portion, the kids had curry and sausages which were fine afterwards I had bread and butter pudding which was delicious but did not get much custard my wife had cheese cake and the base was frozen a kango hammer was nearly essential. We had coffee to finish and then asked for our bill which to be fair was expensive. The last time we ate here the portions were bigger and the meal not as expensive. Maybe we will give it one more go before we right it off...!

Marco Polo not live
O'Connell Street, Limerick City, Limerick

went here for a family get together very good service made to feel welcome as there was a lot of kids with us it wasn't the quietest of tables but this was not a problem as they really are family friendly. Three of the group went for the family for 50 deal and the rest from the A la Carte all food was top class standard the kids were thrilled with there pizzas really generous sizes, my wife did not get her dessert which was a little annoying but as it was getting late we did not say anything...overall was not the cheapest but I must say the expierience overall was really good, and as a group we will be back..!

profile_review

Royal Dorbar - Closed
Unit 3 Cornmarket Row, Limerick City, Limerick

went here for a family dinner, staff are very child friendly the decor is basic enough the food is good but expensive there is a takeaway here also which means people are coming right into the retaraunt while you are eating which can be a little annoying. Overall I would come back as it is not every place you are made to feel as welcome with kids.

Cafe Noir - Robert Street
Robert Street, Limerick City, Limerick

Can't knock this place really, good food, nice staff very professional, made to feel welcome which in turn made me feel comfortable. Will come again.
