“A Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Seven Adults + two Babies and a most wonderful experience in dining in Legends Restaurant- the Restaurant of the Templegate Hotel, Ennis, Co. Clare, tonight 6th. October 2012. All of us had wonderful starters and main courses and desserts. Speaking for myself, I had delicious Cod in a Saffron and White Wine Sauce - succulent. Thank God for a change of Vegetables from Brocolli, Cauliflour and Carrots, served in so many restaurants - tonight was celery and courgettes, with baby potatoes. The only complaint that I would have is, I couldn't eat the plate. The rest of the party had sirloin steaks, cooked exactly to their requirements and the look of pleasure on their faces, showed satisfaction of the highest order. All this was" washed" down with very reasonably priced Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. On arrival we were welcomed by the charming and friendly Catherine ( Receptionist ) and then by Antonio ( Maitre'D of the highest standards and friendliness ) and served by Michael from Belmullet ( oozing in efficiency and friendliness ). There was another Lady and Gent served us too, but unfortunately I didn't get their names, but part of this highly efficient and friendly team. All this was supervised by the very " Hands - on " Owner Mr. John Madden. Thank You for a wonderful Meal and wish you continued success.

“Food and Service excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

I stayed in the Temple Gate hotel recently and as the staff advised me and my family to have dinner in Legends Restaurant, I made a reservation at the desk. Staff were very friendly at check in. The menu had so many different courses, from Crispy Duck, to some local Salmon. I had the crispy Duck for my main course as Michael the waiter advised me it was one of the nicest main courses . Lets just say I never had a nicer Duck and as I have traveled far and wide I have a lot of experience of different foods, I feel that this restaurant has won me over. Legends would be in my top five with food and service me and my family good. The experience and the service Michael gave us was first class. Me and my family would recommend Legends restaurant if you wish to have a nice meal at a good price with excellent service.

“A Most Wonderful Meal and Wonderful Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

Four of us dined in the Legends Restaurant in the TempleGate Hotel, Ennis and I must say it was excellent. Two of us had Breast of Duck, one had Chicken and the other had a Sirloin Steak - beautifully cooked and flavoured. We started with one having Duck Confit, two having Mushroom Brioche and myself having a Chicken Terrine with Parma Ham - Excellent Starters. Our Desserts were also mouth-watering all washed down with a very reasonably priced Cotes du Rhone. If that wasn't a complete meal of excellence, more was to come - price for the Dinner is 19.95 Euro with a 5 euro supplement for some of the courses e.g. Duck and Sirloin Steak. All this was served by a most friendly and efficient staff. We were in a hurry and after informing the staff of our dilemna, they had us out in perfect time - stress free and feeling great after a wonderful meal

“Good food in a nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

We ate in Legend's restaurant on Valentine's night and were very happy with the food and atmosphere.
The starters of mussels and breaded mushrooms were top class and the steaks for main course were cooked to perfection.
We were disappointed in both desserts, but overall really enjoyed the meal.
The service was very attentive and we will definitely return again.
