Thought we would mark the occasion with something special, and special it was. what a stunning restaurant, quaint, candlelit, with friendly staff who would bend over backwards to accomodate you. we were greeted by a friendly host and two glasses of champage, fab, then we were seated in a friendly comfortable atmosphere and then for the star of the show the food, WOW, the best meal i have ever had by far, it started with homemade brown bread and delish bread rolls, followed with an abundance of cheese, (four different kinds delish) pate, hummous, sun dried tomato paste, salami, choritzo, olives, peppers, yum, all perfectly presented and delicious, followed by the most amazing prawn tempura with a tantalising taste bud extravaganza sauce, YUM is all i can say the best prawns ever, then for the mains, wow amazing, cod in a pea and sage broth, has to be eaten to be believed, i have never tasted anything as good, amazing compliments to the chef (and that's understated) it really was amazing fondant potatoes, creamy cod, unreal, and my boyfriend had the steak. wow, cooked perfectly, medium rare as requested, and the sauce, i thought it a bit rude to pick up the plate and lick it, but wow it took all my best efforts not to, amazing, what a chef/team of them. Dessert fabulous, black forest gateaux with mirangue crumbled in a delight to all black forest fans, cherry, chocolate, could you ask for more. overall the Gleneagle and O'ds restaurant was the most spectacular dining experience i have ever had, can't wait to go back, im actually getting hungry just thinking about it, applause for the chefs and the staff and thank you for a wonderful memorable experience, ye really made my valentines special X

We didnt realise that the restaurant was closing at 9pm, so we arrived to a very busy restaurant at 8.50pm. We were greeted as we would have been at 6pm. I asked if it was too late to order and I was told absolutely not, we were more than welcome. The food was really lovely and the service excellent. We will definitely return.

Executive Chef John runs an excellent food house. His personal attention to all diners is a testament to his obvious passion for excellence in the restaurant. He even chatted with the children - the future customers. Our banks could learn a thing or two here for sure!

We went down there and it was very busy (4.45pm). We ordered from the lunch menu. I got shepherds pie (the vegetables were raw), my Dad got cod in batter and Mum got chicken and mushroom vol-au-vent. By the time it came to our desserts (5.30pm), the menu had changed and the desserts a little dearer. They were €4.50 on the first menu we received and €5.50 on the second. We did order desserts and they were lovely but the dessert my Dad ordered (fruit salad) was a little on the small side especially for the price.

Thank you very much for your visit and comment.
To cater accordingly to our customer needs, we do offer 2 menus during the day: a Bar food menu until 5pm , then a Dinner menu from 5pm.
And on a busy day, the restaurant do not closed so it may have been the cause for the unfortunate confusion with the restaurant team.
Thank to your valuable comment, i will ensure that the team does not repeat this error and offer the actual bar food menu throughout the customer meal that came before 5pm.

We hope to have the opportunity to cater for you again very soon.

Best Regards
