Visited the Percy French last Sunday evening. Had table booked for 7 and where shown to our table promptly. I had the sizzling chicken which was served with creamed potatoes and it was devine. My partner opted for his favourite - steak done medium rare with chips and garlic - totally gorgeous - resturant was busy but staff were very attentive - atmosphere good and views were stunning. Had few drinks in the bar later in the night sat beside a lovely fire - one wee thing as the evening grew on got bit cold would have been perfect to sit on if fire had been lit but that is only a personal observation could not fault food, staff or environment. Would defo go back again

very warm welcome from staff, took a seat by the window( what a picturesque views) seemed we were young n dating once again...lol
orderd ceaser salad ( absolutely delightful ,know its not a rocket science to make one, but the crockery was very posh too, portion size was very well worth the price)
hubby orderd sea food chowder ,and loved it( not many times hes got nothing to say since him being a restaurenter).
ordered veg lasagne n pasta for mains..(looked home made and not brought in frozen, hubby wanted a chicken n bacon penne pasta which wasnt in the menu, but staff was prompt in fulfilling my fussy hubbys request ).

Food comes served in beautiful dishes etc but portions very small for price paid, and not top quality taste as you would expect for the premium price tag

I was so impressed!! Warm welcome and delicious food. What could be nicer than sitting looking out at the sea whilst eating the best fish and chips! Will definately be back :)

Stayed at the Slieve Donard Hotel and had a beautiful room and great service service from staff. Percy French's came recommended... Sooo disappointed immediately!! Staff seemed very young and inexperienced. Ordered drinks and they sent to the xrong table. Ordered the expensive medium cooked steak (£17) extra £2.50 for gloopy sauce £2.50 for cold green beans and £2.50 for chips. Sent steak back - undercooked and cold. Partner had the curry - cold and flavourless. This xas not busy at the time and couldnt understand the problems the floor and kitchen staff could have had! This restaurant really let the beautiful hotel doxn tremendously. Not going back!!!

Thank you for posting your comments on Trip Advisor.

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the hotel and you had such high praise for the service from the staff.

Unfortunately I was very disappointed to learn of the issues you encountered while dining at the Percy French. I have met with the Restaurant Manager and discussed the necessary actions required to prevent these kind of issues recurring. I can assure you that this is not the standard of service we expect our guests to receive.

I look forward to welcoming you back to the Slieve Donard Resort & Spa in the near future and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing the hotel on this occasion.
