Great restaurant, great food

This was my second time here and it never fails to impress, started with the seafood paella and had pork belly for the main. We were looked after by Paddy who was brilliant and kudos to head chef Aidan, the food was brilliant.

Very ordinary food, I love continental food but navan is missing a good fine dining i guess. Pastas, Fajitas etc is very disappointing. Same boring cream sauces etc. Restaurant loks good but if i remember the waitress was a bit rude, as she acknowledged our need but never returned. Fish was missing seasoning and there was too much on plate... More

Walked in on lazy Sunday afternoon, thoroughly enjoyed the Shrimps & my partner had eggs. Washed down with local bru & a prosecco finished well by Americano. Definitely the two best restaurants (Russell & C&S) in Navan are next to each other. Thanks for fab lunch

We visited with our Irish friends for my wifes 60th birthday and had an excellent meal. In fact our only complaint was that the portions were possibly too big!! The quality of the food was first class. We'll be back!

I have been here a few times for dinner, I found the food is either out of this world amazing or terrible..... so it is a bit hit and miss, if you go out of the early bird times, it can be quite expensive also.

Went to The Russell on a recommendation and was not disappointed. We arrived late for our booking on a very busy day but were duly accommodated with no fuss. Food was excellent and the kids menus and portions were more than ample. Staff were friendly. The only minor glitch was that when the main course was served, we were somewhat... More

My husband and I enjoyed dinner at the Russell. Food was excellent, imaginative, flavoursome and well presented. Although a large enough restaurant the atmosphere is intimate. Would thoroughly recommend.
