Excellent service, almost excellent food

I was amazed by the quality of the food for what was a relatively cheap price. A 3 course meal was 25 euros but the food was excellent and presented beautifully. The waiters were very friendly and although there weren't many people in, there was a lovely atmosphere and we had a fantastic evening. Would highly recommend.

Was disappointed after my second visit to Arch Bistro.The first time I went it was fantastic and I told many people about it.While the food was still decent it just lacked that bit extra it had the last time.Maybe they have changed Chefs.

Really imaginative menu and beautifully presented. Don't go the The Arch if you want a quiet dinner - this place is full of life, at least it was on a Friday night. Prices reasonable enough, and excellent staff. Enjoy !

They say that long threatening comes at last. I have been meaning to visit this place for some time now and today I just happened to be passing by, but I decided not to. And I am glad that made the effort and did not pass by. This bistro attracted my attention about six month ago when I noticed that... More

We went here after looking at the other reviews and were not disappointed. The food was delicious. I had the chicken liver parfait, which was smooth and delicate but needed more bread with it. The rib eye steak was tender and succulent and the accompanying chips were very impressive. The berry parfait for dessert was tart and refreshing- a perfect... More

Arch Bistro ... Silent, warm and nice ... This was the last night in Ireland. We had been celebrating the ending of good work on significant contract. And it was great. The interior was comfy, food - delicious, attitude - respectful.

We like to eat early, so the early bird menu was perfect. I was a bit skeptical about all the positive reviews. However, it really was excellent. Could not believe the value on offer. The wine list might be a weak point, but that's being a bit picky. Duck confit was top class and the fish and chips was as... More

We went back to the Arch Bistro for our anniversary. It was a Tuesday evening and there was a good buzz in the place, great sign. It was beautiful, the food was exceptional and the service so good. It's great to have a restaurant of this quality on our doorstep. Continued success to this little gem.

Nice welcome, good menu, food well executed, overall a nice place. Its placing on tripadvisor is a wee bit baffling. I would go again when visiting the area. But must try some of the lower ranking places in D14 too. Nice
