The dining room is beautiful and the staff very attentive but overall I found the food over-complicated. There also wasn't enough of it. 34 euro for a filet steak that was gone in 6 mouthfuls. Not good enough. Also too many things going on in the one dish which suggests the chef is trying too hard. has potential but a... More

We dined at Brabazon for our wedding anniversary and savoured every mouthful of the Tasting menu. It was exquisite. It was sublime. It was stunningly good and we adored every minute of it. The thoughtful combination of courses, the incredible pairing of ingredients and magnificent presentation. The atmosphere was wonderful and the service was excellent. Our experience at Brabazon at...

One of our regular spots for Sunday lunch and never disappointed . Excellent, source indicated ,meats and fish beautifully cooked and well presented. The location is superb with obvious efforts made to show off the premises and gardens in the best possible way. Well trained and helpful staff always friendly.

My family treated mr to lunch here on Fathers Day and it could not have been better, We arrived late but this was not a problem as their service is top class. This service continued right through the meal. Our party of four all had different choices and everyone came out impressed. The location and the surrounds add to the... More

Put simply, the food was excellent, as good as I have had anywhere else matching the likes of Chapter 1. Why not 5 stars then? The service was ok but not first class and the layout was more country kitchen than fine dining (no tablecloths for example). Service aside let me provode more details on the highlights as follows: Wine:... More

We (4) had Easter Sunday lunch here on 20 April 2014 having been a number of times before (it was always of a very high standard). This time - oh dear - what an absolute shambles. A new chef we were told. Poor quality food, odd combinations (spiced beef with pistachios and cheddar??? and no it definitely did not work),... More

Had an absolutely amazing meal at the Brabazon Restaurant on Wednesday 16 October, nothing was too much trouble for the staff, especially Derek the manager. We had 7 courses, all 7 were absolutely delicious. A taste of luxury in a beautiful setting.

Good and bad, hit and miss. First of all, if anyone at the restaurant is reading this, please attend to your website and fix it, it really is absolutely terrible and almost put us off going. There’s no excuse these days a website to be so appallingly bad and it gives the impression that nobody really cares, and that’s not... More

This is the best restaurant in the area for good food, good service and a special occasion, without spending a fortune.

Myself and 4 friends went to Tankardstown for a meal last weekend on a rare girly night out. There had been a lot of to-ing and fro-ing as to where we would go before we all agreed on here. We wanted nice food and cocktails which, we were assured by the website, would certainly be provided. This would prove not... More
