Well I know the place is vegetarian or even can cater vegans but just not for guys. I came to visit because of my wife and we ordered from everything just to be able to taste more than 1 dish. Well few of them were nice few of them were not that much. I would order some of them as... More

First visit. Lovely place, sat in the courtyard. Salads were lovely but the lasagne was very disappointing. It just lacked any flavour.

I am sorry to hear that the lasagna was not as flavoursome as you had hoped. Since your visit, we have re-launched our menu, and have also up-dated our lasagna. We hope that... More

Popped in head to grab some snacks on the go! Got myself some yogurt, granola and fresh fruit in addition to a slice of some salted caramel cake.

Having heard so much about this place, I was looking forward to visiting it. My daughter and I along with my 6 month old granddaughter drove out to Greystones for what we thought would be a lovely lunch. How wrong was I, it had to be the most tasteless food I have ever had and as for the coffee, one... More

Very healthy food organic. We arrived there and were seated quickly. The outdoor of the premises was very inviting. The food was delicious as was the waitress who served us. Would certainly go there again

We left pretty content after a huge feed at the happy pear ! Standard prices on food as it is located on the coastline, undedstandable why the queue was so long - delicious! I had the lasagne and my friend had the curry (we ended up going half and half towards the end!!) can't wait to go back!!

The Happy Pear was buzzing. This place is like a culinary comfort blanket. We had lunch of veggie lasagne which was 10/10. The staff are pleasant and friendly and even with a queue there is no stress in the place. You can hear other diners discussing how delicious the food is. Great to have such a wonderful place in our... More

My wife had wanted to visit this place since purchasing the 2 books written by the owners. It did not disappoint. It has a very "bohemian" feel to it and the choice and variation of the produce is staggering. Whilst we were looking around in the shop we were approached by a man who offered us a taster of some...
