“Great food and good value for money!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

I recently had dinner with friends in McGoverns and found the early bird to be great value for money, whilst the service was both prompt and friendly. As a veggie I thought the Mezze starter was delicious and the portion was a really good size, whilst my friends enjoyed the Antipasti Board. I followed it up with the veggie burger (falafel) but asked for it to be served Mexican style instead of in a wrap with humus as it was too similar to my starter and the kitchen were happy to oblige. My friend opted for the Supreme of Chicken and she thought it was very tasty. All in all, a very decent meal for a very reasonable price. The atmosphere is relaxed and the decor is modern and welcoming. It is a great to have a such a venue in the locality.

“It's nice, nothing to complain about”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

Totally agree with previous reviews. Good food, great service and good value. Went on a Friday afternoon at 4:30, very quiet but had a lovely meal for 2. Clean, tidy and friendly staff. Good value for money.

“Excellent Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Visited McGoverns on Saturday evening - was part of a large group of 20 people so wasn't sure what to expect. Have to say cannot compliment the restaurant enough. The staff were excellent, the service very quick and efficient, nothing was too much trouble. We all went for the set-menu which was excellent value at €25pp. The food itself was top class, every course was very well presented and tasted great. Entire group very pleased - we will be back. Thanks to all at McGoverns for accomodating us on Saturday and making our evening so enjoyable.
