As a regular visitor to the excellent Snailbox it would be amiss of me not to defend the place. I am a wheelchair user who frequents the place I have found the staff nothing but professional, friendly and above all, willing to go beyond their job description. I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal nor met a member of staff who was rude and did not enjoy their work. It tells of a great atmosphere when you see the same staff on all the time and the have a genuine smile on their faces. The owners are nothing short of the perfect hosts and anyone who says otherwise is not use to eating out in a perfect setting with great food. I have no personal gain in this comment and but felt I must defend the Snailbox and its Management and staff and cannot recommend the place enough and anyone who has found the Snailbox to be other than I have described either came with different aspirations or just do not see the hard work carried out by all the Management and Staff to make their visit memorable for the right reasons I am surprised at some of the comments re bad service, rude waitresses etc.. as I believe all the staff are very well trained and nothing is too much trouble for them and I know if either owner encountered their staff with a bad attitude they would not tolerate it as the Snailbox has an excellent name in the area and is usually totally booked out weekends and they will facilitate you even if you have no booking but are willing to have a drink at the bar and enjoy the ambience of the place. As a wheelchair user I can only commend the the owner for the way he has the place totally accessible and this is something a lot of other restaurants could take a lesson in. I always remember the quotation when I hear of people complaining about honest people who try to give a good service: “Before you criticise someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticise them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes.”

My Thai
The Beacon Hotel, Beacon Court, Dublin 18, Sandyford, Dublin

A pretentious place. Was hoping for the Thai experience. The Staff were good if not a little forgetful at times and interrupt too much when you are deep in conversation. The food was poor to be honest, wont be back.
