This is a beautiful cosy and relaxing restaurant with top class food and very friendly staff. William our waiter greeted us at the door, took us to our table and was very professional and accommodating and took great care of us. The quality of our food was excellent and served fast. There was plenty of choice. It is reasonably priced.... More

Driving through Ennis on a Sunday, on the way to the Cliffs of Moher, we found very little open for lunch. So we were delighted to find "The Dining Room". We had a terrific lunch; I enjoyed a chicken and mushroom vol au vent and my husband had a lovely spinach and ricotta pasta. The staff were friendly and the... More

Brought my parents here, wanted to get my dad to try something that wasn't Italian and show him that Irish food can be good too. He had hake with a side of potato mash and veg and a pannacotta for desert. He loved it. My mother had the same and cleaned her plate. I just had a soup because I... More

Loved the food here, breaded murshrooms are a must to start with, and the chicken for mains was so tasty, and just managed to fit in afters.!! A little more expensive then other places to eat, but a fab spot to treat your self, would eat there again..

My husband and I stopped in for dinner on the way home encouraged by the good reviews. The service was quick but minimal - we had to ask to order drinks and even to get water. We had to ask for condiments. No one stopped to ask how our food was (the onion rings were undercooked). No one asked if... More

We loved the food and the experience and the chefs and all staff are offered our sincere thanks. See you all next year. Sincere thanks from the... More

We dined in Willies corner in this amasing "dining room" restaurant! Once we stepped inside their door we felt special and the rooms were filled with merrry diners! Their menu was a delight for such a busy week in Ennis. William our waiter was so professional serving his customers with such ease and skill and helped us to choose a... More

We visited twice during the recent fleadh and were made to feel extremely welcome by Willie and his team of excellent staff. The wife took the Tiger prawns and chicken curry and I had the vegetarian curry on both occasions which was truly delicious. Would recommend thoroughly and it was a reasonable price for the experience. See you next year!

We were looking for some place to eat since most of the places were booked and found this. The people were very friendly and the server tried to please very hard. The food was just ok. The burger was thick but too onion taste and not enough beef taste. Ok if you can't find an open last minute place to... More
