The title may not be too fair. I do eat in Rua regularly both on Spencer Street and New Antrim street. I find the food tasty and fresh... but some dishes are overpriced. Goats cheese, salad (selection of leaves, tomatoe relish and a 1/4 of pannini garluc bread for 14/15 euro....... But then you get a good breakfast for €7.00.... More

Appalling service for a mini breakfast and 3 childrens breakfasts.... ended up waiting almost an hour for the most straight forward things on the menu....will certainly not be returning. Don't waste your time or money here.

Place was busy but I still would think there would be a person sorting salads . . Cakes was beautiful also but had to rush it as time was running... More

Worth walking out of the centre of Castlebar to find this lovely café and deli, just opposite the court house. We had to wait for a table as the place was packed but it was worth the wait. There were three of us and we all had different main courses and different puddings. Everything was delicious and we wouldn't hesitate... More

There's an upstairs restaurant and a downstairs deli and I've had many experiences of both. Upstairs the potato and chorizo breakfast is a solid favourite of mine. My mouth waters at the thought of it. The hot chocolate with marshmallows is also an excellent choice. Downstairs the cakes and salads (as much of an oxymoron that it is to group... More

Recommended by friends who live locally, tried out Rua Deli on a day trip to Castlebar. But if a delay in getting a table, although being busy is a good sign. Once seated, service and food were excellent. Great atmosphere too.

As I work near by Rua is our special Lunch time treat at least twice a week and we are never disappointed. Staff are friendly and helpful and the food is always delicious. Lots of local produce and ingredients used and good value for money. The only fault is that you may have to wait for a table if you... More

Rua Deli is a Castlebar gem with a great choice of locally sourced food combined with a lovely homely atmosphere. Visited recently with colleagues in the morning and had really good scones and coffee. When we came back for lunch there was a nice choice of specials on the board and a good choice of salads and sandwiches on the... More

Had lunch here with my sister, staff are great, friendly and polite. Food was fine, it seemed nice and fresh but there's nothing exciting happening on that menu. For such a busy little spot they could do so much more. Good coffee though

We spent our gift voucher from Facebug Campers here - what a treat, fresh pasta and a sauce, great honey and strawberry preserve and some good goats cheese -
