“Lovely :)”
Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

Was here when the giro d'italia was on. Thinking I wouldn't get a seat. Well I was wrong was seated very quickly and the staff was really nice. I had the chicken wings for starters. Sum portion :) Then the surf and turf. Steak was nice but the scampi was unreal. Not that cheap but you pay for what you get. Will be back again soon.

“Excellent, as always!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

We call in this restaurant quite regularly when travelling south. We have always found the food to be good, staff extremely friendly and accommodating, and service prompt. On our last visit the restaurant was exceptionally busy. Two coach loads and a christening party, plus other callers like ourselves, and yet food and service was still first class. Certainly worth the short detour off the motorway!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

Had lunch with fiancee and our boy of 6, menu wasnt very exciting limited really to steaks, fish, chicken. Found menu very pricey, had wings to start, partner had garlic mushrooms, both very nice but at €10 for the wings they needed to be. I had steak burger, partner had chicken salad, young fella had chicken goujons and chips, food was bland nothing exciting and no presentation at all. Service was quick and accommodating by a female waitress, cant see us going back again anytime soon

“As good as ever”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

Called into the Monasterboice inn on our way back from Wexford. We hadn't been here for ages and it was as good as ever. We had scampi and there is nowhere like it. Absolutely the best.

“Very poor”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

I've eaten here before and it was always only "okay", we brought an American friend here this evening and it was dreadful from the start! The wine we had ordered was ages coming out as was the starters, my steak which I had ordered well done was only fit for the bin and cremated, the mash was watery and really not very nice at all so I returned the entire dinner to the kitchen! The waitress serving us had slapped our starters too onto the table which worried us, overall although the manageress did come to our table and offer a dessert on the house we declined the offer, we won't be back in a hurry as the waitress felt her service was fine and while we appreciated the offer of a free dessert we all felt the staff here needed a lot more training from the chef to the waitress down!
