Reviewed November 22, 2012

frankly they were expensive but, if you can swallow that, the shop has so much stuff to buy you have trouble keeping the card in check !

“We couldn't get lunch - plenty of empty tables.”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Couldn't believe Avoca yesterday. Plenty of empty tables and a queue of people tryingto pay. No-one available to take payment or to show you to a table. Eventually some one in the queue went to fetch member of staff but the two people chatting at the back continued to ignore everyone. Thinkingwe had caught them at a bad moment we went off for a few minutes but when we returned the situation was the same. We then noticed that most of those who had succeeded in being seated had no food. Go next door to Cafe Vaudeville!

“Divine Lunches”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Lunches here are hard to beat. Great location and variety. There's a real buzz and always a queue after noon. Get there early and you won't regret it. The fish is to die for and when it runs out there are always plenty of really good options to fall back on.

“Amazing food”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Absolutely love Avoca. Worth travelling to Ireland for alone! We ended up in the cafe this time since the queue for the restaurant was too long. The salads and meals were increadible, as always. Plenty of choice for vegetarians too. Would eat here every day if we got the chance. The coffee was ok, but could be better. The only real negative about it would have to be the crowds. People were basically hovering to get your table as you ate.
