The gBK restaurant offers great food and drinks at affordable prices in an informal, pleasant atmosphere in the heart of Limerick city.Here in the gBK you can sample some of the best dishes in Limerick, from our locally sourced Sirloin Steaks, succulent Sea-bass, our specially stone-baked pizzas to an Irish Stew from our Chefs’ own family recipe. This Boutique Hotel Limerickis the ideal location for dining in Limerick.What you will find is a very relaxed and informal approach to dining in style. The restaurant area is beautifully welcoming to all with open arms. Whether you are looking for an intimate setting, somewhere to entertain work colleagues or simply dining out with your friends, George has it all with window tables to watch the world go by or secluded booths for true romantics. “It’s such things that keep people coming back time after time” says the well established and friendly George team.Accompanied by a small but beautiful selection of new World wines there is always something to suit every taste & budget.

We had lunch and dinner here during our visit, and both meals were delicious. I had steak, which was done perfectly, and with generous portions.

The duck spring roll was bland and uninteresting. The carbonara was better but heavy. Staff were attentive, and listened to my comments. The option of wine by the 500ml carafe is a good idea for those of us eating alone.

Ate at the George on a night when there were two large hen parties, a very large group of americans and a birthday party all going on while showing the Munster Rugby match. Just dropped in for a quick bite and had a really nice meal and few drinks while watching the match. Great service and food

A fabulous meal (compliments to the chef Jeff!!!) with generous portions which were exquisitely presented, very reasonably priced, in a beautiful restaurant. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Very child friendly which is a must for us as parents. A great experience overall and would highly recommend this restaurant to anybody who is in the city.

Nice place and very nice staff just no sense or urgency. Food good but not as good as price tag. Kitchen does close a bit early for a hotel bar and kitchen
