We visited Fat Cat's for an evening meal and rated this place as excellent. We had the half rack of rib's, Chicken Curry with chips and the Steak which were all priced on the menu for under 10 euro's. Cant rate the entertainment but the food was yummy : ) Will use again in the future. Thank you for making... More

Went here originally to watch a football game (they have lots of large flat screen hd tvs), but enjoyed it so much that we stayed and returned a couple of times. The beer is cheap and excellent quality Sagres, served in frozen iced glasses - excellent. They have all-day half-price happy hour up to 7pm, which meant that we were... More

Went here for a hypnotist, very boring and got the feeling of 'Brits abroad'. Would not go back and couldn't recommend this place to anyone.

How can you give a 1 star review based on not having had a real bad experience. Surely a 1 star review is reserved for a really bad experience such as a bad meal or poor service etc or both. Not on the basis the reviewer failed to do his homework and walked into a uk family fun which he... More

The food is fantastic at Fat Cats, and very reasonably priced. Where else could you get a steak dinner for €9.95, and the quality is top class. The roast dinners are also fantastic, with proper roast potatoes and the best ever yorkshire puddings. They also have entertainment on most evenings which is great fun. Just love this bar.
