I visited Suttons bar & bistro in Rochestown Park Hotel last weekend with my wife and 3 small kids. We were automatically impressed with the friendly and colourful dining area, our waitresses name was Katie, Katie did everything she could to make our visit to the restaurant an overwhelming success, as both myself and my wife are fussy eaters and...

The location and parking here are great but this is where great ends! The restaurant and staff at very nice but it is let down by the quality of food and its presentation. Five of us had lunch and all dishes were 'average'. It is also too expensive for what it is. I had the BBQ chicken strips which consisted... More

This bar and bistro did a menu with a nice range of dishes - both in terms of price and variety. The club sandwich I had was excellent and they stock a modest but respectable range of craft beers. The service was friendly, efficient and attentive. It is a place I would return to.

Ate at this restaurant last year and the food was poor, but decided to give it another try as it is conveniently located and has parking. However, the food was worse this year and I would strongly advise people to steer clear of it. Our seafood chowder tasted of salt and it seemed more like a vegetable soup to which... More

We were a little late for our reservation but this was no problem, our table was tucked away in a corner which was great because one of our party was wheelchair bound. Staff were excellent and food was great. Thanks for making Christine's 'Graduation celebration' really special! The Murrays

I ate here with my family recently as a post-christening dinner. It was good but there were a few small things that let down what could have been a great night. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and as requested when we booked dinner placed us into a side room. Unfortunately for twelve adults and one child we only... More
