INternational Irish restaurant

The place (and waitress) made it seem more French and Irish. Nice place, good selection of drinks and food. Sophisticated place with premium pricing.

We had the earlybird menu - need to be seated before 6.45pm. An excellent meal - and delightful French waitress. Highly recommend Marconi's.

My friend and I staying in a local hotel were recommended this restaurant. We were not disappointed! Traditional decor and a cosy room greeted us. The staff quickly greeted seated us and took our order promptly. I love the special touches such as a large candle and pretty fresh flowers on the table. While we waited for our food to... More

Five friends and I went to dinner on a Saturday night recently, we had booked as we heard it was popular. The restaurant was very busy and all tables were full when we arrived, we were seated and served straight away. The menu has a great variety. We all chose something different from the starters and main courses. The food... More

Look at my review under Foyles Hotel filed earlier today. Unfortunately I wrote the review before I found that the restaurant has its own Tripadvisor entry !... in summary Excellent dinner, excellent service, all round perfect.

Three friends and I ate here on Saturday November 2nd. The restaurant is top class. The decor is warm and inviting. The choice of starter and main course is extensive. The quality of the food is excellent and matched by the service. I would heartily recommend this venue to any local or guest.
