We had to queue for approximately 10 minutes to be seated, then had to wait a further 20 minutes to be served. The slowest and most un-friendly staff I've ever come across in a restaurant. When we did get the food it was dreadful. I ordered a simple pasta dish with a tomato sauce for my son - when the... More

We went to L'Officina on a quite Monday late afternoon, and it was still busy enough, so we thought it must be good. We were in a bit of a rush, as we were on the way to the airport, but it still took 25 minutes to take our order, and a further 20 minutes for the food to arrive.... More

Food is nice but way over priced for what you are getting. Its crazy busy at the weekends and you have to queue so if you get a chance to go during the week you will enjoy it more. Not really anywhere else in Kildare Village to eat so they can rip you off.....which they do

I had spotted this restaurant on a previous visit to Kildare village and was impressed with all the awards outside the door. Foolishly, I assumed this meant the food would be excellent. I had a salad with pan fried chicken and bacon, which was really just about average. The service was efficient but quite brusque. The restaurant itself is quite... More

Usually stop here for lunch anytime we are in the Kildare Outlet but this time was an absolute no-no. Were met on Sunday with a noisy, unkempt restaurant with seemingly no-one in charge and no body met us to seat us. Understanding they were busy and after about ten mins we opted out, for take away coffees. I'm sorry but... More

I did not expect much, but I was wrong. Authentic atmosphere, nice staff, and the food was delicious. I would recommend this place anyone. The prices are on Irish average.

Visited this lovely restaurant on a couple of occasions. Last visit was on Sunday morning last. First time sampling breakfast. I had the fried egg with Italian bacon and toast. The eggs were done to perfection, the bacon was a little salty for my liking. I asked for ketchup to be told they don't do it. They however offered me... More

Excellent salad, beautiful bread- nice surprise. Try it. Bright open restaurant. Big selection of wines. Good menu, not too big, but something for everyone - kids and adults.
