“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

I have visited Farmgate a number of times and I love it! The staff are always great. They are really accommodating. The food is always tasty, fresh & great quality- you pay for what you get! Don’t go in here without sampling desserts ...they are laid out on a table just to tempt you before you even choose your main course!

“Great place for people watching!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I regularly have a bowl of chowder in the Farmgate it never disapoints. The staff are very efficient in a tight space. It is a ballet in action watching them work. The food is very good, I tend to order the same thing, soup and lemon tart.

Terrible service, overpriced. Very rude staff. This restaurant would not honour a voucher. Avoid this restaurant.

“Nice but overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Ate here recently with a friend midweek. Food tasted good, was well presented and was a decent portion size. But was very overpriced. A lot of local restaurants with food of an equal standard are offering great value deals for dining out midweek, without compromising on the quality or portion size of their dishes. Service was only ok. Probably won't return here for a long time, as there are equally good, if not better, restaurants in Midleton that only charge half the price of the Farmgate. The evening that we spent in the Farmgate definitely wasn't worth what we paid for it.
