Fantastic service, great food and reasonably price. Walking distance from Dunboyne Castle and Hotel. We had breakfast here instead of the hotel. Very nice people.

Wasn't overly taken by The Mint Leaf. Granted the food was good enough but I found the service ridiculously slow. Although not in any way a "fine diner", I was not impressed with the waiters simply dressed in jeans and tee shirts. Casual is good but not this casual. I won't be going back.

Absolutely superb restaurant!!!! Fantastic food in a friendly welcoming atmosphere. The staff were friendly and professional and the service was excellent. We have dined in the Mint Leaf on numerous occasions for breakfast, lunch and dinner and it is always a pleasure. When we have family and friends visiting from abroad this is the restaurant we chose to dine in.... More

One of our greatest pleasures in coming to Dunboyne is a visit to The Mint Leaf Restaurant. If you like personal service, exceptional food (the steak on a stone, home-made bread and houmous and risotto are beyond compare) and a lovely, relaxed environment then The Mint Leaf is well worth a visit. We love it and hope to return and... More

My well done steak was burnt and nearly inedible and we were told we only had an hour to eat and were then ignored by staff when trying to quickly order! Having said that, I would go back and try it again.

The Mint Leaf is excellent. Had a meal here a few years ago and always said I would come back. Came back tonight and had the Early Bird meal. Filo Prawns to start, followed by Angus Sirloin, done to perfection. Finished off with apple crumble. Food was perfection. Ambiance and atmosphere were excellent. Staff could not have been nicer. Really... More

I had breakfast here on Saturday just before work. The atmosphere of the place as you walk in is the first thing that caught my eye, it's a very welcoming restaurant! I had the full Irish Breakfast and I have to say it was very tasty! I'd love to return and try there lunch and if they have it dinner... More

We stayed at Dunboyne Castle on our first night in Ireland. Not knowing what to expect, we relied on Trip Advisor for our dinner options! We were not disappointed! There were 4 of us, and not one of us had a complaint about our meals. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was pleasant...Would definitely recommend this restaurant!
