Description: The Blackboard Bistro understands the simple art of Risotto and a starter of leek and bacon risotto with fresh oregano, lemon zest & creme fraiche proves this point beautifully with all the flavours balanced, expressive and just right. Everything else that comes from the kitchen is just as precise! Mc Kenna Guides - 100 best Irish Restaurants 2013

“Friendly Service and Very Good Food”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We had a party booking of 10 for this restaurant. The welcome was warm and inviting. The wine served was very good. The party was joyous and staff were good humoured and nurtured the atmosphere. They were attentive at all times, service was thoughtful, and always patient and polite. Food took some time to arrive, but this everyone to have a good time. My soup starter was good, if a little heavy on garlic. The main Irish Steak course was perfectly cooked and well seasoned. This is a most professional and welcomed restaurant serving very good quality food.
