We had a lovely meal in La Bucca on Sunday and the service was excellent.
When we went home and had a closer look at the bill,instead of been charged for five kids meal deals at E10 each plus any supplements necessary,we were individually charged for every item on the kids menu.
This is a shame as it takes away from the value for money that is on offer and left us with a bill substantially bigger than we were expecting.
It is not the first time it has happened,the last time we noticed and had to point it out to the staff,who apologised and adjusted our bill.
I really wish restaurant staff were encouraged to be more family friendly and make sure we get the best deal on offer !

We often eat at the other La Bucca restaurants but this was our first (and definitely last) visit to the Dunboyne one. The premises are dark and carelessly decorated (those sunflowers!), a horrible place to be on a sunny day. Definitely the ugly sister in the chain.

The food wasn't up to the same standard either. The manager with dark hair brought over my chicken Caesar salad which was very obviously burnt, not blackened. I left most of the charred lumps of chicken in the bowl so three people saw this error (the chef, the manager and the waitress) and thought it was fine to serve to a paying customer without making any comment. Never in a million years would something as unacceptable as that be served in the Ashbourne branch. It just wouldn't happen. No doubt that is why they are often full and Dunboyne was empty.

It is a lovely place for dinner. Great value, always something on special offer. The last time we had an offer on wine, order one get another half price, which was great.
Great selection of food and really good service.
I would recommend this place for casual lunch or dinner.
