Visited here with family early evening for a meal, very busy but seated immediately and order taken promptly. Great choice of food, plenty of options with an excellent amount of vegetarian dishes. Only downside was the amount of time for meal to arrive, server did not say how busy the kitchen was and I had to ask two servers where the meal was after 45 mins! I understand how busy it can be but it should have been brought to our attention that the kitchen was backed up, when you've a very hungry child with you, this matters!! Food arrived with apologies and it was worth waiting for, piping hot and plenty of it! Malteser cheesecake and banoffi pie finished off a great meal and very well priced, overall a great dining experience

It was within walking distance of our residence in the Orley House so we dined there twice. It was average good food, but not as good as some of the other outstanding restaurants we ate in in Ireland.

Called in for lunch last week and was very pleased with the meal and the price. Even though it was a week day the restaurant was really busy so obviously popular and has a good reputation! We only wanted a quick main course and despite it being really busy we didnt have to wait long at all. The food was basic (salmon with leek sauce and veggies & roast beef & yorkshire pud etc) but very hot & fresh. Service was quick and attentive. Price was very good value. Would go back for an evening meal some time & would recommend.

The menu had nice variety with specials that were unique and tasty. The prices were moderate, and we enjoyed dining it the open room to the left of the entrance. The service was good, and would highly recommend it.

Have eaten here a couple of times now and love to go back again. Good choice on the menu. I would highly recommend the fajitas. I never finish all the food I get served and usually bring the leftovers home in a doggie bag. The staff are very nice and friendly.
