Food was sensational but restaurant dining experience let down by lack of staff knowledge, professionalism, customer/waiter proticol and awkwardness on presenting drinks and food. Also the fact that they rattled off the dish in front of you so quickly that you had no idea what you were eating. (in hindsight we should have kept a copy of the menu beside... More

This was a special occasion, we booked into the MacNean Suite for the night also. What a wonderful experience. It is a perfect mix of fine dining with warm hospitality. The bar is a great place to sit in and talk with other diners, there is a lovely sense of camaraderie among guests. While we were sitting in the bar,... More

Got a cancellation last weekend to celebrate my birthday. We have been to McNeans twice before and this visit did not disappoint. The service, cuisine and atmosphere were all second to none. We were booked for the early sitting at 6pm and would certainly recommend this as we were not rushed and it made for a nice long evening. Looking... More

It was then a 7 course taster menu (choice of 2-4 items each course) in the restaurant area for €80pp. We declined... More

Normally when we visit MacNeans we do it without the kids. However, we decided that we would introduce our kids to the amazing world of MacNeans and we booked Sunday lunch here recently. There were 8 adults and three impeccably behaved kids (aged 7, 2 and 1). I will confess I was very apprehensive about taking the kids and was... More
