Carmel and I dined in the French Table on Saturday evening. We ordered two glasses of Champagne to get into L'ambiance Francaise! Carmel started with TARTIFLETTE which she enjoyed. I had the TRADITIONAL FRENCH ONION SOUP. It was super! For the main courses, Carmel had DUCK A L'ORANGE. It was beautiful. I had what I consider to be The French... More

Thoroughly recommend anyone make this restaurant your first point of call when in Limerick. On the waterfront with beautiful views. Amazing food. Best meal in Ireland. Value for money. Had the 3 courses for EU 28 per person. Mains came with 2 bowls of vegetables. Buttery new potatoes and stir fry vegetables at no extra cost.

We visited The French Table as a group of girls and had a really lovely night. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and fresh, homemade bread was served as soon as we were seated. We sampled from both the a la carte and set menus and all dishes were delicious, special mention to the vegetarian options and the fish. Deserts... More

This restaurant is just a little hard to find, although in the city centre but well worth locating. The food is excellent, the service is also very good, the waiters are attentive and very obliging. It is also really good value for money. Highly recommended!

Really good refined dinner. The pate de campagne is authentic and delicious. One of the best we have had for a long while both in GB and US/CA. The salad was seriously fresh and made with very good olive oil (we know, we make olive oil). The hake was simply superb, to the point that my husband even ate the... More

went to the restaurant with several colleagues form work and was delighted with the quality of the meal, as were al the other guests. It is a "traditional" menu and the lamb I had was cooked to perfection with a nice portion size. The location is good but the restaurant appearance is a little understated. The service was excellent and... More

Fantastic food staff and atmosphere. I wanted to get starter and main course not on the menu which was not an issue. Menu was very french and good for that not the usual fare. I want to go back to Limerick for this restaurant alone. Staff genuinely seemed delighted with compliments and seem to care that thw customers are happy

I thoroughly enjoyed my recent dining experience here. The food was very good - right down to the delicious side salad that accompanied the starter and the petit fours that came with the coffees. The staff were very pleasant also. I would definitely return when in Limerick again.
