Main Street, Maynooth, Kildare
Reviewed 13th August 2009 ( visited 15th July 2009 )Have eaten twice (so far) in Greene's. Each time, I had no complaints... the food was lovely (lasange, steak). Food was nicely presented and good sized portions. My companions on both visits were also very impressed with the standard of food and high quality service from the friendly and attentive staff. Prices are indicative of the overall quality of food and service. The restaurant itself is cosy and suitable for groups or couples and has never been too crowded on my visits. Highly recommend the place for a special occasion or just a relaxing meal with friends. Next up is to check out their lunch menu!
Stone Haven Restaurant
Mill Street, Maynooth, Maynooth, Kildare
Reviewed 11th December 2009 ( visited 03rd December 2009 )Aye in Stone Haven a couple of weeks ago during the early bird menu. The website stated the early bird menu finsihed at 7.45pm so we made our booking for 7pm. However when we arrived we were told it finished at 7pm but once we mentioned the website advert, the pleasant waitress agreed to let us order from this menu. I ordered cajun muchrooms as a starter and my parter, garlic bread. Both dishes were very simple, basic and not very appealing looking. The garlic bread was just a roll split in half while the cajun mushrooms were served in a bowl of cajun sauce. The main dish was lasange and fries, which was very tasty. My partner ordered turkey and ham special, again ticked all the basic boxes. Both dishes were a good size. For dessert, we ordered, profiterolls and selection of ice cream. Both were nice sized servings. Service was prompt but served by 2 different staff members which some people may find slightly distracting but we were fine with this as the 2nd server was much more friendly! Price of €20 per person for this meal was good value but the perceived high quality 'Stone Haven' auro was lacking. Also, the reception area had a musty type smell, seems to come from the carpet because it was not in the other areas of the restaurant. Overall, I would recommend the early bird menu, but check the timing when booking! Would return for early bird offer but otherwise I find it too expensive for the quality.
Langton House Hotel Kilkenny
69 John Street, Kilkenny City, Kilkenny City, Kilkenny
Ate here today after looking for a quick dinner. We arrived in and the place was very busy but we were greeted by a friendly lady so seated us quickly and ave us (paper) menus. Our order was taken quickly and the food arrived in no time. All was very tasty and there was no delay when we ordered additional side orders. Staff overall were very friendly and attentive despite the business. I would definitely recommend for a reasonably priced dinner..we paid 12.50 for a turkey and ham dinner with all the trimmings. Very good choice otherwise on the menu too. We will return!
The Mint Leaf (Dunboyne)
Summerhill Road, Dunboyne, Meath
Popped in here for lunch recently. A wide and varied lunch menu with options from sandwiches and wraps to full on pasta dishes. Place was relatively busy for mid-week. Nice decor overall, clean and tidy and service was friendly. Food wise, I though the prices for lunch were a little expensive. I had the smoked salmon, cream cheese on 3 small slices of brown soda bread with a side salad. The side salad was just lettuce leaves with red onions and one slice of tomato and it was soaked in a 'from the bottle' tasting dressing which didn't compliment the salmon at all. While the salmon was soft and tasty, there was just a scraping of cream cheese, no black pepper and at a price of €7, it was expensive in my view. I would probably return again but would likely choose a pasta dish which seemed better value at €9+.
Talbot Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin
Ate here recently with a group of 7-8. My immediate visual impression was dated, old-fashioned, a little musty and in need of a redecoration. My impression remained throughout, the glassware, plates and menus could be replaced also! Staff were friendly throughout, informal approach to service but this was no problem, we weren't fussy! Food arrived promptly when ordered and in between courses. We all had a wide range of dishes and everyone was satisfied with the food. It wasn't spectacular but at the same time difficult to find serious flaws with the food. Perhaps the minor point I would make is the price for the quality of food was a bit high. If in any other city or town in Ireland I would likely return but give the ample alternative options in Dublin, I won't be rushing back.
Café Bon Bon
Mill Street, Maynooth, Kildare
Ate here one Friday late afternoon with a friend. After admiring the place from outside for some time we finally made it inside. The decor is impressive, very quaint and a bit girly which might explain why most of the customers were ladies! It was relatively busy and we were unsure if we should find a table or order at the counter first. fter a minute or two, a staff member told us to find a seat and he'd give us a menu. We found a seat, table was still used from last customer and after maybe 10mins or more and a reminder, we finally managed to get a menu from the staff member. Another 5 or 10 mins later, we caught the staff member to ask him to please take our order! Once we placed it, it arrived in good time. I ordered a chicken and brocolli pie, came with side salad/couscous. My friend ordered a breakfast/brunch panini which came with complimentary tea/coffee. We had to remind the staff member of this. Food was good, tasty but for what it was, I found it a bit expensive overall. Pie (small dish) was 9.50!! My friend said the breakfast was a bit dry and wouln't go for that again. We waited at the counter to pay when we were finished, took ages to be served and when we were, we were over-charged a bit so had to point that out nd be refunded. Overall, it is a nice establishment if a bit crowded for seating space. Food was good, would return again for it but only if prices reduced a bit. Service on this particular day was very poor, everything on the floor seemed very unorganised and as a result, customer satisfaction was affected. Hopefully it was a one-off and I would be willing to try it again but in comparison to the value and quality in other eateries in the town, I'm not sure if I'd be in a hurry.
Crotty's Coffee Shop
The Craft Baker Kieran St, Kilkenny City, Kilkenny
Myself and my mother decided to drop in here for a quick lunch one Sunday afternoon. The place is very nicely decorated, plenty of character, old fashioned decorations and I could see why it was a draw for tourists and visitors to the city. However, the standard of service we recieved was very poor and as a result we are unlikely to return given the choice of establishments in the city. We both ordered toasted sandwiches and pot of tea. We were given our tea and told our sandwiches would be brought down to our table when ready. The place was not busy and after 15+ mins, they had not arrived so I mentioned it to one of the floor staff. He said he would check it out but another 15 minutes later, he had not returned and our food had still not arrived. Eventually, we decided to leave as we were tight on time. We told the deli staff and they said our sandwiches had been burned and they were remaking them, they were just ready. Had they informed us of this, we would have understood and had no problem but the complete lack of communication left a sour taste. In fairness, the staff did offer the food without charge as we were leaving.
TD Molloy's Restaurant @ Seven Oaks Hotel
Athy Road, Carlow town, Carlow
Ate here recently with my partner for a special occasion. It was a Saturday evening so I expected the place to be busy with diners or even hotel guests but it was not. There may have been 2 other tables occupied in the place! As a result, the atmosphere was somewhat sombre and quiet with very low background music. The staff welcomed us and brought us to our seats. We went for the 3 course menu which had some good options. We both ordered the vegetable soup and breads for starter (melon, ceaser salad were other options). It arrived within 5 minutes! This was nicely creamed but a bit too salty to taste. For mains, again we both ordered the Grilled Entrecote Steak (well done). Again, this arrived fairly quickly! It was served with tiny bit of mash, lots of baby potatoes, 2 huge onion rings, usual mixed veg. (carrots, parsnips, brocolli) and a Café de Paris sauce! The main was really too much food for the plate and not enough high quality. The dish was relavtively tasty but nothing out of the ordinary. I have eaten nicer for less money. For dessert, we ordered the chocolate brownie and the white chocolate cheesecake. The portions were again much too big and we did not finish. Staff were friendly and accommodating but seemed to lack some basic hospitality knowledge.. for example our unused cutlery was not removed after each course and we had to ask for steak knives. Also, when I enquired what the sauce with the steak was like, the waitress did not know how to explain it so we asked for it on the side! One wine glass was stained with a previous users lipstick (the glass of wine each was not included in the set 3 course price which I found appaling)! A jug or glass of water would have been a nice touch! These small attention to detail issues, while not major problems, did add to my disappointment with the restaurant and its lack of atmosphere. As a result, I would not be inclined to return here given the broad variety of other restaurants in Carlow Town..
Mantra Garden Bar & Club
Main Street, Maynooth, Kildare
Was looking for a quick dinner on a Friday evening so we decided to try Mantra again having not been here in a year or so. When we walked in the place was empty and almost silent except for low music. We were happy to hear from the barman that they were actually serving dinners. So the barman gave us menus from the bar and we had to find our own seats..there were plenty (!) but would've been nice to be seated and handed our menus here. A while later we palced our orders with the barman, he forgot to ask which sauces we would like with our dishes so we had to remind him! A 2nd server came down to check we had received our order and she set our table for us! Food didn't take too long to come out..maybe 15 mins. I ordered the 8oz steak, with mash and fried onion & mushroom with a side salad and pepper sauce. It was plenty big and the steak was cooked to perfection. Mushrooms & onions were a bot too greasy for my liking though. My friend got the lasange with chunky fries, side salad and piece of garlic bread. Lasange was served in a large dish so was plenty, this was very tasty but a lot of cheese! Chunky fries were VERY chunky but a bit greasy and seemed to be deep-fried. The slice of garlic bread was served on top of the lasange so this was a bit soggy! Overall we were happy with the quality of the food, and portions were good. The prices were decent for good pub grub; steak €13.50, lasange ~10.50. We would return for the food but the service needs much improving especially when the place was so quiet, staff were not busy. Atmosphere was poor given the lack of people. Maybe if they seated customers themselves, they could cluster the in a section to create a good vibe!
Clock House, Maynooth, Maynooth, Kildare
Came here for a quick Sunday dinner so the carvey option was ideal. Pub was busy with peope watchin sport on tv so we had to look around for a table for a while..might have been nice if a member of staff assisted us with this. Ordered the turkey & ham dinner which came with mash, 2 potato croquettes, a selection of veg (carrotts and cabbage), stuffing and gravy so a big helping for the price ~€12. Overall, it was good carvery grub, although the ham was a bit too salty so i didnt eat much of it. Atmosphere in the place was decent given msot people there were just regular pub goers. Aside from my choice of carvery dinner, they had 3 or 4 other options which looked equally as tasty. Would return again if looking for a quick bite to eat.
Teach Dolmain Pub & Restaurant
76 Tullow Street, Carlow town, Carlow
Ate here with a group during an afternoon. Staff were friendly giving us water and menus until our full party arrived. They were prompt to take our order and it didnt take too long for the food to arrive. A number of the group ordered the traditional turkey dish which came with 2 scoops of mash, stuffing (a bit dry) and a side plate of veg (carrots, peas, turnip). Other members ordered the beef lasange, a sizeable portion with skinny chips and side salad. Others ordered the chicken breast (very large!), fish of the day and the steak and mushroom pie. The prices were very good, everythings was under €10 but the quality of the food was very good. Everyone was satisfied with the food and the staff regularly checked to see if we were happy with our orders. They were very accommodating when some members ordered additional items or altered the order. Once our dinner dishes were cleared away, we were given dessert menus and our orders taken. They were prompt to serve us desserts and tea/coffee. Overall, a very good experience and will return given the great value on offer. Only downside was the stmosphere was a bit quiet but given it was mid-afternoon perhaps to be expected. Ona minor side-note, the toilets could ahve been given more cleaning attention.
Kieran Street, Kilkenny City, Kilkenny
Ate here on a Saturday afternoon during the Arts Festival. The place was relatively busy and popular for food. Good atmosphere with live music. When we arrived (group of 5), the main lounge area was full so we tried to look for a seat in the beer garden, this was full too so we found ourselves a seat in the empty cave/tavern part of the premises. No staff member greeted us or offered to seat us, we had to help ourselves. After waiting a few minutes no member of staff (despite 3 or 4 having seen us) gave us menus..we went and got them ourselves. Eventually we managed to order our food and drinks. The food was very quick arriving to our table which was great because we were starving. Staff member wasn't very friendly..literally took the order and left! Most dishes were identical - portion of skinny fried chips, side salad mix chopped up tiny (!), then the individual meat/fish dish added onto it. We ordered fish cakes, chicken breat, lasange and vol-au-vent. The portion size was decent, plenty big. It wasn't anything special but decent pub grub, we all liked the taste anyway! Each dish cost on average €11, perhaps a bit steep. Another staff member cleared our dishes and we asked for dessert menus which eventually came. This staff member was verging on rude, no greeting, no smile or any concept of good service. Literally 2 minutes later, she returned to take our orders so we hurried into picking something (€5 each, again expensive for what came out), nothing spectacular and one member of our group got the wrong dessert but we decided to eat it anyway and leave once we settle our bill. Overall, a good atmosphere in the place, impressive building, food was decent although bordering on the expensive side for what is was. Service was incredibly poor and unfriendly and this is the main deterrent for me returning to Kytelers in the future. Very disappoing overall.
The Village Inn Clonee
Main Street, Clonee, Meath
Had a sunday dinner here recently with family. The place was quiet when we arrived so had our pick of tables. The place is very spacious. The friendly staff member gave us each a menu..these were printed on standard A4 paper..perhaps some laminating or a leather menu holder would improve that cheap impression! There was a good selection of the usual pub grub, kids menu, burgers, sunday roast, turkey and ham, chicken and several fish dishes which was good to see! I ordered the turkey and ham option. This was nice, but fairly basic, nothing spectacular. It came sliced on the plate with 3-4 scoopes of mash and veg on the side. The presentation wasn't very appealling but tasted fine. Another person ordered the burger, this was very large dish and came with chunky home-made chips (yummy although a bit greasy!), side salad and for some reason 3 giant battered onion rings!! Really didn't need these with the already high-fat/grease content!! Perhaps if they lost the onion rings and halved the portion of chips, this dish would be spot on, the plate was just too cramped. In terms of atmosphere in the establishment, it was almost non-existant, regular pint-drinkers, horse-racing on tv and no background music. A candle & a flower on the dinner tables maybe in the alcove section would work wonders for the visual appeal of this place. Maybe even splash out on table cloths and have a few tables set with cutlery. I probably will be back if in the area and after trying the other pubs in the village but probably not in a hurry, prices were only average for the quality of the food. Dessert we skipped but were reasonable at under €4. A bit more attention to detail and this place could do better.
The Tavern Bar & Restaurant
Murrisk, Westport, Mayo
I recently stayed near The Tavern for a holiday and ate here 3 times. Each time it seemed to be a hive of activity in the evenings and mainly a food establishment rather than a drinking pub, family friendly also! They had a extensive standard menu and a big selection of daily specials (they didnt change too much over the week though!). I ordered the beef lasange on 2 occasions which came with side salad and chips. It was a very big side so great value for money at €15. However, perhaps the chips should have been homemade rather than fried from frozen. This dish was delicious and would recommend it to any lasange lovers! The other time, I ordered the seafood pie sicne the Tavern has won a bundle of awards for their seafood. The pie came with a side salad and the fish included cod, salmon, prawns and mussels. This too was delicious in a creamy white wine sauce, topped with mash. Personally, I thought another handful of seafood would have made it perfect, maybe some calamari too! But I would defintely order this again. Other members of my group order steak, battered fish and the grilled chicken dishes. They were satisfied with the food but did not seem to enjoy it as much as I did! The service was 2 occassions was only average. Our table had 2-3 different staff serving us each time. I prefer 1 table, 1 staff member idea. They were not very friendly and didn't check back to see if we were happy with the food. On the 3rd visit, a member of management happened to serve us and she was very friendly and chatty. If back in the locality, I would definitely eat here again and would recommend it to others.
Mount Wolseley Hotel, Tullow, Carlow
It was my first time to eat here and I had high expectations given the overall impression of the hotel was positive. However, I was bitterly disappointed with the entire dining experience and unfortunately cannot see myself returning here for food in the future and would discourage others from making the effort to visit the restuarant for food particularly when in a large group. I arrived with a large group and we were all seated and orders taken. An hour passed and our food had still not arrived so we reminded the staff and they assured us it was on the way! There were no well-done steak orders so not sure why the delay was so long, it wasn't overly busy. Eventually it arrived and all looked like good decent pub grup. One member of the party ordered extra mash, this never arrived and the standard portion of mash with the meal was tiny as was the portions of vegetables to be shared around the table. A couple of members of our party had beef burgers with chips and side salad. The chips were basic frozen chips, I had expected some chunky home-made style chips. Both burgers were sent back to the kitchen because they were red and bloody in the middle, not good for minced meat! After waiting maybe 20 minutes, we were given new burgers. However, one had originally order cheese as a topping on the burger, this was forgotten on the replacement, a small but important detail in my view. In the meantime everyone else had finished their meal. We decided not to bother with dessert and promptly left. Overall, staff were reasonably polite but we received no apology for the long delay and subsequent under-par food.
La Bucca Dunboyne
The Green Centre, Dunboyne Village, Dunboyne, Co. Meath, Dunboyne, Meath
Ate here for the 2nd time ever and decided to go midweek and avail of the €10 main deal and later I upgraded to the €14.95 deal when I saw the lovely dessert menu! The €10 menu has a lot of options and so it would prove to be a cheap night out with really good food. For those who like Itlaian food, the €10 menu has plenty of options and the reliable burgers or pizzas for the kids is great! I opted for the chocolate brownie for dessert and was hoping it wouldn't be too small given the great deal i was getting and i was delighted to see 4 big pieces of brownie arrive on my table with ice-cream in a wafter tartlet. While I found this deal great value for money, the bill was pushed up a bit when I ordered a glass of house red wine. Perhaps for even better value, La Bucca should consider a complimentary glass with the 2-course option from that menu. The restuarant was very bus for midweek and so we were seated in the 'back' section by ourselves. This was no problem for us and enjoyed the meal. The waitress and reception staff were extremely friendly and willing to chat and I will definitely return for this €10 (€14.95) midweek special offer!
La Maison Donatello
Unit 1 Town Centre Mall, Maynooth, Kildare
My partner and I ate here just before Christmas for the first time for a special occasion. When we arrived we picked any table which we wanted (one with a perfect view of the kitchen cooking area!) and were given the regular & early-bird menu. After some time we finally decided to skip starters (because they seemed very expensive) and go straight to mains..Linguini Di Mare (€17) and the Steak Fiorentina (€27.50)...both were a little overpriced but did taste delicious. The Linguini had a lot of seafood but no plum tomatoes as stated on the menu..I was looking forward to these. The Steak was served with the usual mash, veg and pepper sauce and was extremely tender. We also shared one dessert..it was nice but nothing special. We ordered a 2 glasses of house wine, red & white..both nice. We also asked for a jug of table water but when it didn't arrive, we asked a second time, we just got 2 glasses of water (no ice). The venue itself was a little dissappointing after reading previous reviews here saying it had been recently decorated! It didn't look that way..even a little shabby! :( For the price of the food, we thought it could have been decorated a bit more elegantly. The atmosphere was quiet but the heavy snow may have impacted on that. Staff were polite but not over friendly or welcoming. Upon leaving I spotted the chef outside the front of the building smoking a cigarette which was a little offputting to say the least. We probably would return again for the quality of the food but only for a very special occasion. However, I think there are other places in the town that provide an overall better experience and value for money.
Spurs Family Restaurant
U42 Liffey Valley Shopping Centre, Liffey Valley, Liffey Valley, Dublin
Party of four ate here on a monday evening and the friendly waitress informed us of the 2 for 1 special deals available midweek which seem like a fantastic deal! I ordered the Spur burger which was half price on the day. Tasty and a full plate of chips and side salad. My friends ordered a steak, chicken dish and ciabatta meal. All were satisfied with the quality if the food for the reasonably good individual prices and the bottomless refills were an added bonus! Definitely should be a more common thing in Ireland! 3 of us ordered desserts, again 2 for 1 and these were large sized portions and tasty but nothin exceptional. At times the service can be a little slow but the most recent experience has been a positive one and we plan on returing again soon.
The Limetree Bistro
The Square, Castlecomer, Castlecomer, Kilkenny
I eat here regularly enough and while the food is usually decent (nothing fancy) I had a horrible experience recently. Big portions for the price and they do half portions also. A negative point is the menu doesn't change very much at all. The vegetable side with the dinners is always the same any time I visit. The establishment itself has a nice decor, reasonably spacious and good atmosphere. Staff are usually always friendly and prompt to serve you. However, myself and a friend had dinner here both ordered the lamb. Came with the usual, stuffing, gravy, usual selection of veg. We have sadly both been off this establishment as a result of this meal.
Main Street, Maynooth, Kildare
Have eaten twice (so far) in Greene's. Each time, I had no complaints... the food was lovely (lasange, steak). Food was nicely presented and good sized portions. My companions on both visits were also very impressed with the standard of food and high quality service from the friendly and attentive staff. Prices are indicative of the overall quality of food and service. The restaurant itself is cosy and suitable for groups or couples and has never been too crowded on my visits. Highly recommend the place for a special occasion or just a relaxing meal with friends. Next up is to check out their lunch menu!
Main Street, Maynooth, Kildare
Had lunch and dinner here 5 or 6 times. Food is always hearty and good sized portions. Service for lunch is good but evening dinner is often slow (worst was 1hour wait because the waiter didnt put the order through!!). Some good value lunch deals however so I would recommend it as a good option for lunch and it has never been crazy busy at lunchtime when i've been in.
Leinster Street, Maynooth, Maynooth, Kildare
The Roost has long been a favourite of mine due to the great selection on the menu and good prices. However, the last 3-4 times i've ate here, i've been disappointed. I feel the standard has dropped and unfortunately I dont long for a Roost dinner anymore. My usual is pan-fried breast of chicken with mushroom sauce (mash & veg) but recently the chicken has been tough. I'm finding even when the place is not busy it takes a very long time for the food to be served (a sign i know of it being cooked fresh but often takes 40mins or more). Also, the atmosphere in the pub is declining and in daytime especially, the upholstery lokos grubby and stained. I've found myself opting for other pub grub the last while.
Avenue Cafe & Restaurant
Main Street, Maynooth, Kildare
I ate here with a group of 10+ recently. Eventhough we were booked for a time after the end of the early-bird menu time, the restaurant agreed to allow us chose our food from the early-bird menu sicne there was a large group of us. We found this nice of them. The early-bird menu offers a good selection of options and all for a reasonable price. I opted for starter (bruschetta) and mains (carbonarra) for €18. Both were very tasty, thought the carbonarra was very filling and the bacon strips were a bit too fatty for my liking. Several of te rest of my party selected the 6 horu braised lamb and said it was delicious..plenty of meat on it and so tender. I will definitely be ordered this next time! Overall, service was good, prompt and friendly. While I think the main evenign menu here is a bit expensive, I think the early-bird is a great option and will probably only return here for the early-bird menu! On a side note, we were sitting upstairs and we found this a little bit cramped plus it was very stuffy, maybe a slightly opened window or air conditioning could be used when the space is busy!
Stone Haven Restaurant
Mill Street, Maynooth, Maynooth, Kildare
Aye in Stone Haven a couple of weeks ago during the early bird menu. The website stated the early bird menu finsihed at 7.45pm so we made our booking for 7pm. However when we arrived we were told it finished at 7pm but once we mentioned the website advert, the pleasant waitress agreed to let us order from this menu. I ordered cajun muchrooms as a starter and my parter, garlic bread. Both dishes were very simple, basic and not very appealing looking. The garlic bread was just a roll split in half while the cajun mushrooms were served in a bowl of cajun sauce. The main dish was lasange and fries, which was very tasty. My partner ordered turkey and ham special, again ticked all the basic boxes. Both dishes were a good size. For dessert, we ordered, profiterolls and selection of ice cream. Both were nice sized servings. Service was prompt but served by 2 different staff members which some people may find slightly distracting but we were fine with this as the 2nd server was much more friendly! Price of €20 per person for this meal was good value but the perceived high quality 'Stone Haven' auro was lacking. Also, the reception area had a musty type smell, seems to come from the carpet because it was not in the other areas of the restaurant. Overall, I would recommend the early bird menu, but check the timing when booking! Would return for early bird offer but otherwise I find it too expensive for the quality.
1 Fagans Lane, Maynooth, Kildare
Occassionly visit Twist, off-peak, cos its usually jammed at lunchtimes! Place looks great since refurbishment and much cooler atmosphere with the additional space. Food is always of a good standard but the menu could do with updating every so often especially the paper menu cards given the upmarket look of the place now. Prices are decent for the food... though of course a cheaper full breakfast would be welcomed!
O'Neill's Bar Maynooth
Main Street, Maynooth, Kildare
Had an evening dinner here with one other person. When we arrived the place was fairly busy and a lot of people eating food. We picked our seats and the staff were promptly over to give us a menu. Since we are regular visitors, we knoew what we would most liekly order but the menu has plenty of options for most tastes. We ordered chicken curry which came with a block of white rice and a side order of chips. This was very tasty, plenty of lean chicken bits along with chunky veg (peppers, onion). We also ordered lasange which came with a side salad and chips. The lasange portion looked big but was the perfect size. The only slight critique I owuld have is the lasange was a bit salty and maybe too much cheddar cheese on top. We cleaned our plates and had no complaints. We were given a big jug of water also which makes a change from some places who just give you a small glass of water! The staff are very friendly and returned mid-way throug our meal to check if everything was okay. It was. There were no delays when we went to pay our bill. The value was great..€10.50 for each dish and for top quality pub grub (the best around) too. The atmosphere in the ub is nice, a very local, regulars feel but also very welcoming. The pub itself is beautifully decorated, kept immaculatly clean and a very comfortable place ot be.
