Service a little slow but food is worth the wait

Ate here on a Sunday night as part of a party of seven. We ate in the bistro part on the left as you walk in. It's a quirky little restaurant and the two men working there were so friendly and full of craic...two rockets, in the most affectionate sense of the word. They made us feel very welcome... read more

I have eaten in The Hungary Monk many times, family occasions, girls night out, friends night out, there is always good service, good food & nice atmosphere - its family owned & run, restaurants have come & gone in Greystones over the past 35 years I have been going there but "The Monk" has withstood the test of time.

There are three options for this marvellous restaurant - early bird set menu, fab but a little limited especially if you have children with you. The evening menu in the main restaurant which is great, really top class and a very large selection but a little expensive and the Bistro down stairs - this is where we ate this evening... More

Very enjoyable experience, food delicious and staff were very attentive through the night, even though a large group arrived at a nearby table. Would recommend the new section for more space and old part for smaller intimate dinner.
