“The best mash potato”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012 via mobile

Apart from the place being extremely quiet for a sat nite, i can honestly say it was the best meal out in a long time. Food was gorgeous. Only fauly can find was found 2 bones in my seabass n the skin wasnt as crispy as i would have liked it. But thats just down to personal taste. Mash potato was out of this world just not enough of it. The service was excellent, waiter was very attentive. Overall would definetly recommend a visit.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Been to this restaurant many times the last two years and always had extremely good food served by very friendly helpful staff. Great menu and nice selection of wines.

The restaurant is perfect whether you want to enjoy a candle light dinner, a business lunch or a quick bite on your way hone from work.

Always enjoy the ambience and welcome from the staff.

Consistently great.. Deffo worth a try

“Excellent Lunchtime value at Black & White just behind Solfreno's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

The same proprietors operate a nice lunchtime trade from their sister restaurant namely "Black & White" located behind their "Solfreno's" nightime a la carte fine dining restaurant. The €9.99 Lunchtime Special is probably the best lunchtime offer along the N3/M3 between Dublin and Donegal. Fine warm bowl of soup of the day with warm brown breadscone, is followed by lunch special of the day, which is frequently stuffed roast chicken excellently garnished with gravy or sauce, vegetables and potatoes or chips. Excellent value for €9.99, with regular dishes prices around 8.50 to 9.50. Great car parking space, and friendly shop and service station on site.

“very dissappointed dining experience.....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2011

We had dined in this restaurant many times before our most recent visit,and found the food and service to be of a very high stanard,but having recently visited as we were passing through,we were very surprised to find the stanard of customer service to have dropped and the quality of food was poor,my husband had the roast beef,which was very chewy,and dry,and i had the chicken supreme which was nice,but we had to request a staff member for breadrolls for our soup,and found it very difficult to get the staffs attention,we ordered water which we didnt receive and the wine glasses were not exactly clean!will not be dining here again unfortunately.

“Disappointed Dining Experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2009

Menu selection looked good.

Waiter did not agree with our choice of main courses,
one of us went with waiter's first choice ( STEAK) , while i stayed with my non-recomended duck dish.

-DUCK -good but side-orders very poor, champ cold and red cabbage chewy.
-STEAK -tastless, side-order: fries non-eatable, pepper sauce poor

SUMMARY: very disapointed with food and service!
restaurant not recommenable
