I’ve been here for dinner a few times over the past number of years and for lunch a couple of times. The food is always good and the staff friendly and attentive. It could be my imagination but I think the portions have gotten smaller. The atmosphere and quality of food and service are great but I do feel that... More

This used to be our favorite Indian restaurant in Portlaoise but in some of out last visits we have felt that it has not been as good as it was. Some time ago we had a over familiar waiter and many of the good dishes have gone. I would not tell anyone that it was poor but i think that... More

Still very good service. Food is very good. Nice atmosphere. Bit on dear side. They offered half bottle when I asked but I when I tasted wine, was happy to have full bottle. Was quiet on my visit but staff were attentive without being annoying.

Ok people. Yes its pretty and has lovely decor and music and is in an old bank. But COME ON!!! Yes, they won a few awards when they first opened years ago, but I fear that they may have become complacent and feel that they can get by on reputation alone. Food wise, it was only ok, I'm a fan...

Great food with great service. It is a shame more people don't use it. Eaten here a few times and have felt the because the restuarant was quite empty, there was a lack of atmosphere but perhaps that was just the times I choose to eat. I can't fault it!

I have to say I can't understand half the reviews of the kingfisher. I have eaten here three times and each time has been a great meal. My wife worked in Portlaoise for 6 months and we enjoyed it so much we went back while I was working in Tullamore. I have a good tolerance for spicy food, whereas my... More
