This was our first visit to Joel's restaurant & we were impressed. The waitress was called Jennifer & she was excellent at her job. She even made our six & four year old little girls feel special! A really child friendly place. We had to wait 10-15 mins for a window seat but that was ok. When the food was... More

Had come here many times in the past and enjoyed a good meal. However, probably been a good few years since last visited and I was not disappointed. Lush food (although we did wait a wee while!) and massive portions that couldn't be finished! Loved the traditional turkey and ham and the turnips were a revelation!!! Waitress was great and...

Staying in the Louis Fitzgerald hotel we decided to try the nearby Joels Restaurant. An excellent family restaurant where all tastes are catered for. We couldn't wait to come back again on the second night of our stay.A good sign of a restaurant is just how popular this place is, we had to wait approx. 15 minutes on the second... More

We ate here last Sunday evening. When we arrived we were told that we would be waiting 45 minutes for a table. In actual fact we waited 15 minutes. We gave our order and our starters arrived pretty promptly. I had tempura prawns and they were disappointing. I was expecting tiger prawns but got a much smaller prawn. However my... More

Food is always amazing, staff are always so helpful and friendly, the restaurant is usually busy so book or expect a delay of 20 - 30 mins. They have a buzzer system and you can have a drink while you wait

Very tasty food, chicken liver pate is my favourite starter in Joels. The Menu hasn't changed much for last few years but food is still tasty. Very busy restaurants but the place needs to be redecorated. Good spot for family dinners. Never had bad food there
