Had Sunday lunch here. The staff are friendly and efficient. The food was very tasty and everyone at the table really enjoyed it. Prices are reasonable too. Maybe some little crayons and colouring sheets for the kids is my only suggestion for improvement

I visited this restaurant on two occasions with my 6 year old daughter. We only went back to Nirvana on our second trip to Ballyshannon because of the lack of options. On our first visit last year the food was just OK. Last June we arrived on the evening of Fathers' Day and did not feel very welcome. I understand... More

I really enjoyed my visit to this chic restaurant . Lovely food and the staff were outstanding. I liked the fact that artisan bread was brought to the table prior to us ordering, as we were all hungry and it really hit the spot. When my main course arrived , there was a rather small roast potato. When i mention... More

Myself and my partner decided to have dinner in nirvana as we had heard that it was under new management. I have have to say that the food was very good and we got plenty of it. The staff were very friendly and the service was quick. We will be back again

We went to Nirvanna last night.. And oh my god the food was out of this world.. I had the Tiger prawns to start followed by the duck.. My husband had the goats cheese followed by the 12oz sirloin steak ( cooked to perfection) wine was delicious and service excellent.. I cant recommend Nirvanna enough:)
