Beautiful place for lunch

This has become a regular for lunch with my wife and toddler daughter in recent times. Not hard to figure out why. Just good fresh food. Most of the time we have a sandwich, maybe some chips or a bowl of soup and a tea or coffee. They have lovely dinner specials but for what we do be looing to... read more

A lunch was included here after a helicopter ride we had got on DealRush. Myself and my mam got quesadillas and they were absolutely to die for. Massive portions of food and all of it really tasty. The design of the place is really lovely, I'd say evening meals and drinks would be really lovely here too.

Went to Gourmet Food Parlour Swords for Sunday brunch, couldn't believe how busy it was. Every table was full throughout our leisurely brunch. The staff were excellent, very attentive and friendly. The menu had lots of choice, everything we had was delicious and nothing was too much trouble. Pomegranate juice was really thirst quenching, have been craving it ever since!... More

The restaurant has a lovely feel about it. It is usually quite busy, giving it a nice atmosphere. Even so, you can linger for as long as you like to chat, and maybe enjoy one of their fabulous desserts. The menu has lots of healthy tasty options, which seem to all be made on site. The food is cooked fresh,... More

This is my new favourite place to enjoy food. Very well made, good size portions. Staff friendly and fast. It was Sunday lunch time and the place was packed, but we had a reservation there, so no problems about the seating. Prices are very good, compared to other restaurants. Will be back.

booked on a very busy Saturday for a late lunch. Only fault was that perhaps the menu is too big to choose! Five mains, wine and sides, staff attentive throughout. Couldn't fault either the food or the staff. Each of the mains where delicious, and sides were tasty. Will be back next time I'm in Swords.
