Wouldn't have guessed it in Dublin, but the wings were spot on! Cold beer, good food, and great service. If you are staying at the Liffey Valley Clarion, try it.

We've been regulars in the arc over a number of years but it's gone downhill over the past 6 months. On a recent visit we arrived at 6 pm, by 6.20 a member of staff still hadn't arrived with menus, but as we had an idea of what we wanted we flagged a staff member to inform them. 7 pm... More

Love this place for lunch. Food very fresh and portions generous. They have a cold salad area or a hot food area - and both are excellent. Staff great especially the salad bar ladies ! Highly recommend.

This is a good restaurant for both carvery and a la carte. The food is very tasty and hot. The Caesar Chicken salad is just divine as a starter. The dessert menu is basic but I think this is because they specialise is making the starters and main course the part of the meal that excells. The staff and very... More

Ate here with my family, really disappointed with the quality of the food, to make it worse the manager didn't want to know when we complained or he just didn't know how to deal with it..... Very unprofessional

Good quality food, nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Caesar salad was delicious and the sirloin steak was excellent. I like to eat there again.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Kids eat free in August (only one child per table I think though but that suited us). Good choice of food, served promptly and hot. We had a mixture of things - calamari, bruschetta and veg soup were tasty. Mussels were in a chilli sauce which was so hot it was like a chilli soup... More
