“Enjoyable breakfast, but very slow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

My partner and I stopped at the Old Post Office for breakfast based on TripAdvisor reviews. Despite being the only people in the restaurant, we were disappointed that the service was really quite slow. On the other hand, the breakfast was of very high quality and one might even say it was worth the slow service and the high price.

“Tasty option and reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

We were in Slane for a wedding and ate here multiple times (including for breakfast, lunch, and dinner). The food is quite tasty, there are a number of options (various salads, stews, pastas, Asian noodles, fajitas, etc. for lunch and dinner), and the prices were reasonable. The service was efficient and friendly. Highly recommended if you're in Slane.

“Great Food @ reasonable cost.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

During short business trip I stopped off here for breakfast with a colleague.

We both ordered the traditional Irish breakfast, which we found to be good quality food cooked to perfection in a timely manner.

This will not be my last visit.

“Superb food & Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

After a recent trip to the old post office I left feeling very satisfied.

As we only wanted a lite bite we ordered a few starters. We shared goats cheese ( best I have ever taster) garlic bread & wings accompanied with 2 house White wine. The food was fantastic, very tasty and plentiful.!

We were looked after by Louise on the night. She looked after us very well and will defiantly return after the service we received by the staff.

Well done
