“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We find Gemelles one of the best Restaurant. The food is superb. The staff are friendly, accommodating and very well trained. They do not impose on you, but you are aware that they are available if you have any queries or requests.

“Great restaurant, good value, location and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

This is a great restaurant which serves honest food with terrific local produce and great presentation. The staff are very attentive without being overly so and are happy to make (excellent) recommendations. Their early bird special is particularly good value and 6 of us had a lovely meal for the total price of €132.00. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

“Poor to very bad”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Having been to Gemelles a number of times in 2012 and loving it, we were back recently to find both service and food were very poor. Waiting for nearly 20 mins for drinks, one of the starters completely uncooked, the other poor, then onto the mains. Seafood risotto which was poor to middling and a steak which was good, save for the oodles of grease under the platter it was served on. Left another 30 mins before we called for service and eventually the manager who was disingenuous in her apology. Wont be going back here again.

“Triple Delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

My boyfriend and I have eaten three times at Gemelles and have yet to be disappointed. Great food, value and the ice-creams served with dessert almost had us crying they were so amazing. The place has fantastic character and would be willing to recommend this place to absolutely anyone, and have even sent people visiting my own place of work to this restaurant as it's too good to keep as a secret!
