Great food

Lovely food, I had the chicken Kiev, my other half had the fillet beef black bean strips with noodles. Both were filling and cooked perfectly. Pint of Guinness was spot on and the sweet potato fries were lovely. Mash was flavourless and boring however.

We visited Joels yesterday as a family. I hadn't been since I was a child and now I was bringing my family so I was excited to go and see how it had changed. We were seated promptly so I was delighted with that but the waiter came almost immediately to take out order not having given us a chance... More

Joel’s is a very busy restaurant on the newly redesigned Naas Road approach to the Red Cow Roundabout. Its success lies in the fact that they can provide a solution to a wide range of customers looking to solve the problem of a hungry car of passengers, a significant birthday occasion for a family and friends and the family like...

Went to Joels on the 18th July with my husband. We were seated straight away which I thought was slightly odd. I haven't been to Joels in about 15 years but decided to give it a go as a last minute decision. Worst mistake ever. We ordered 2 bottles of sparkling water and a beer from the manager that seated...

This restuarant has a very broad choice to choose from. The food is good and reasonable. Portions are quiet big overall its a good spot for simple food.

Very busy restaurant. Very handy location so I'm guessing that is why it is always so busy. Good place to go with large parties ample seating ect. The food and service is very average overall although their chicken wings where quite tasty everything else we ordered we felt was vert over priced.

If staying more than a couple of nights in Louis Fitzgerald, this is with a try. It's a family restaurant , popular with kids, good burgers, ribs etc. Some might find tacky, but does what it says one the tin.

Very disappointing. Menu was tempting and the restaurant looked nice. Grumpy waitress at entrance and downhill from there. Definitely quantity over quality. Massive plates of food thrown together. A smaller portion well cooked would have been better.
