Good meal and great service

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.

This is an amazing place, with good ambiance and nice staff. At Friday night this place is on fire and a must visit place for bachelor. Its not very expensive and worth visit one, but only on weekends.

I'm not a lover of carvery but this place is beautiful for carvery atmosphere is nice and the staff are extremely friendly. Kids eat free in Sunday is brilliant and my son got housing that were freshly made with fresh chicken and he loved them

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.

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.
