Went here for breakfast as heard so much about it. Very disappointing. Kept having to move our chairs while staff were doing something by us. Not very friendly. Breakfast nothing special. Won't be returning.

We opted for here as we hadn't been in some years so we said we'd try it again. It was one of my fav restaurants in the past and I must say it didn't disappoint again. We opted for the Early Bird Menu which at 25€ for 3 courses seemed very decent value. 4 starter choices -soup, pork bonbon, seafood... More

Very good early bird menu. I had fish pate & beetroot salad, bacon & cabbage & a divine chocolate dessert. It would have 10/10 except for the starter, an extremely salty fish pate. So salty that l couldn't finish it !! Think there might have been an accident in the kitchen so l'll go back & give it another try.... More

Fenns quay does not deserve the hype!!! I sent back my main as it was actually inedible. They didn't charge us for it, which was nice.... But other than that, the only good thing was the wine. They couldn't even make a good dessert 😕 I can't fault the service, they were flawless. But I ended up having cheese and... More

Not a fancy place, but a good place for an inexpensive lunch. Friendly service and interesting luncheon menu. I highly recommend it.

We ate in Fenn's Quay on a Saturday evening & had a really positive experience. Good selection on the menu & great service from our friendly waitress. I had the bacon & my husband had the beef as our mains with two sides which was more than enough. Was so full could only have the truffles as dessert with two... More

Just happen to be parked outside Fenn's Quay one morning and was looking for a nice healthy breakfast. I had never been but had heard great things so I decided to give it a go. So glad I did.....I have found my new little piece of heaven. Such a lovely happy atmosphere in there. Seems to have a lot of... More

Fenn's Quay has been on the go for some time now and the food remains excellent and experimental in its taste combination. Staff are very friendly and the service is superb. I just think the restaurant itself as an eating space needs a revamp. It is looking tired and I would be concerned that this might soon begin to affect... More

I visited Fenn's Quay one evening for dinner at around 7pm or so. There were two tables occupied at the front of the restaurant and the back looked empty. Two staff members were having a conversation at the counter when we came in, and neither of them stopped to show us to a table or give us menus. One of... More

Was quite intrigued by the dessert we were served on our final stop of the tapas trail. It was a mousse type dessert and one of the ingredients was moss. It was different and absolutely beautiful. It was also nicely presented in these little jam jars which was a nice touch. Whilst we only had dessert here the restaurant'smenu seemed... More
