Have eaten here a few times as part of a large group. The first couple of times the service was a total disaster. But on the most recent occasion, the service had improved. The waiting staff were much more pleasant on this occasion as well. Food was fine, a little overpriced. Nice surroundings.

The restaurant was well maintained and comfortable. The menu had a good bit of diversity. The food was very good and the final bill was... More

We ate in Mabel Crawford’s Bistro on the two evenings of our stay in Vienna Woods - the dinners were first class – the hake was particularly good

Called in here yesterday on our way to the airport. The menu was varied & GF wasn't a problem. The OH had a salmon & monkfish duo which she said was very nice , the toasted special was the norm. Nice setting & helpful staff also reasonable price.

Group of 10, all had the 3 course early bird meal with tea or coffee for just €25, very good food and generous portions. The staff were very helpful and friendly - everyone was extremely happy with the whole evening and would definately recommend to others
