By undercooked, I mean raw in the middle, I complained and it was replaced within 5 mins, To add insult to injury... More

Ate here over the Christmas. Service and food were both good and price was decent. Seems busy and is getting a good name so definitely worth going to check it out. One small complaint - waiting staff never came to refill our water!!! Other than that it was a very enjoyable experience.

My boyfriend and I went there for new year's dinner, having heard a lot of good things and we were not disappointed. Everything was delicious! The service was great too. I'll definitely be going there the next time we're home.

Had the yummiest starter garlic mushrooms ever! Could have ate more of them. Stuffed chicken breast was so tasty, so was sauce. Veg a little bit of a let down. Huge chunks or carrot, turnip and sugar snap peas. Considering how nice the chicken was I think the veg could be more refined. Hubby had peppered steak which was very... More

this is the only place in Ennis that I will continue to eat. The menu is great and there's something for everyone. I can honestly say I'm addicted to the Brie and the chicken curry. I haven't been able to eat much for months due to morning sickness but these to dishes hit the spot every time. My new favourite... More

Would highly recommend the Market Bar as a great place to eat lunch or late breakfast. Portions are very good, good selection for lunch and great value. Setting is lovely and I recently brought my family in who were over from England and they liked it so much they went back the next day for Breakfast! Staff/owners are extremely nice.

I keep returning, any time of the day the service is perfect and friendly, with requests easily catered for without a fuss. Glad to see how they keep up with the cleaning and always look sparkling clean. Probably best place in Ennis.
