“Best BBQ chicken burger!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Every time we feel like a really good and genuine chicken burger we always head to Henry J.Beans! The BBQ sauce is just amazing and the whole chicken burger itself is so delicious. Definitely recommended.

“Average food, disastrous service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Was there on a Saturday night with some friends. We were given a table outside which had just been vacated and were promised someone would immediately come over and get it sorted. 15 minutes later and no one in sight. We had to ask the staff twice to clean our table. Definitely not the best of starts.

Next it was drinks. One of the four drinks ordered was missing. Waitress said she would bring it over immediately, which of course she didn't. 20 minutes had gone by and another 2 members of staff notified about the missing drink but still nothing. After getting fed up of waiting, I headed to the bar myself to get the drink.

The food itself is good but nothing spectacular. Portions are on the big side. i had ribs which were tender but rather tasteless. The grilled chicken fared much better. Chips were soggy and slightly cold.

We skipped desert and opted for some coffees. These did not take long to arrive. However no sugar sachets were given. Waitress said she would bring some and eventually she did, with the coffee having almost gone cold.

The final struggle was attracting someone's attention to get the bill. All the staff had gathered outside chatting, oblivious to patrons trying to get their attention.

All in all not somewhere I would want to return to unless they seriously sort out their shameful service which lets down the place so badly.

“Not bad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Foods good but nothing amazing, good choice on the menu though. Big drinks/cocktail menu but they are not the quickest bringing you your orders. Good outside area and good for big groups, we had 25 people for a 1st birthday party and everyone enjoyed themselves.

“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

This restaurant is situated in the 5 star Corinthia Hotel. This restaurant certainly is not 5 star.

We both had ribs. the first time we have ever left a restauarnt having had ribs and still feeling hungry - and at 20 euros, far from cheap.

The joke was the wine. The wine itself was fine - red. The glass was the smallest wine glass we have ever seen at a restaurant. It it held 125ml we would have been surprised. We asked for a bigger glass and they managed to find two which must have held all of 150ml each!!

Overpriced and poor. the restaurants at the Marina hotel next door are mauch better.

“Great Food.....but you will go thirsty!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

Used this bar/restaurant on several occasions during my stay at the Corinthia Hotel. The food was always fantastic but the speed of getting drinks to your table was a disaster. If you have plenty of time then sit back and relax but if you are thirsty and keen to get the party started then I would held in a bar in the main bay.
