“A return visit”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Lunch with our new arrival and my parents and we decided to go back to Greenacres. Our waitress was the same girl we had last time. We must have created an impression because she remembered us and cooed over Junior which made mammy and granny very proud. Unfortunately, I don't have her name but she was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. We ordered a crab salad, duck confit and pork. The menu was comprehensive and had a lot of dishes that I would go for. Our food arrived quickly and was delicious.Again, Top Class. One critcism would be the small amount of vegetables for us to share between 3. We asked for more and it arrived quickly. Dessert was a little disappointing, showing a lack of finesse.
The bill came to just under €90 with coffees and 2 glasses of wine. This was our first outing as a family and I would recommend Greenacres to parents with young children.

“Rare quality”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Dreadful art works. But this is a place where the management will push the boat out with decent wine and lovely seafood and quality delicatessen-style cheese and cold meats and salami and chorizo sausage. Nice soda bread too.

“"Perfect end to a perfect day"”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

With a gap in the diary and stunning weather forecast, my wife and I decided that a quick visit to Wexford would be the perfect treat now the kids have gone back to school. We passed the morning walking St. Helens beach, the afternoon shopping on the Main Street and spent a wonderful evening in the unique surrounds of Greenacres Bistro. Situated at one end of Wexford's narrow Main Street, Greenacres is essentially a restaurant set in the stunning surrounds of a wine cellar. The menu is not overly complicated and all food tastes are catered for. I had some dietary issues that were taken care of without fuss and this set the tone for a superb evening. Nothing was too much trouble for the attentive staff and it was a pleasure to sit back and be served first class food and wine in these wonderful settings. Wexford has many gems and this is definitely one of them. Thanks again to everyone at Greenacres Bistro for delivering the perfect end to a perfect day.

“Two Thumbs up!”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Not knowing Wexford very well my wife and I were left with the dilemma of where to eat?? Greenacres was recommended by a local and we couldn't have asked for anything better! On walking in the wine selection absolutely blew us away with every possible variety you can imagine! The staff were super friendly and despite being very busy on the evening we were seen to and seated very quickly! The team seemed to work well together, making light work of the full restaurant! The food was amazing and the suggested wine complimented every bite! The place has a real posh feeling to it without the extortionate prices, leaving my wife and I the feeling of being rather spoilt! Will definitely return and recommend to all!!!

“What a fantastic dining experience to end a wonderful holiday in Ireland!”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Only in Wexford one night so took the opportunity to look around the town for a restaurant. Settled on trying this place as the menu looked the most interesting & best selection of fish. On arrival, there were a number of tables occupied so the manager explained that if we waited a about 20 minutes we could have a table.... so we did and the experience was well worth the wait. There were 2 members of staff serving and the service was excellent but not intrusive.

The food was outstanding and the choice of wine was fantastic (a good bottle of NZ Sauv). The surroundings are quirky and together with the excellent service, food and choice of wine make this one of the best dining experiences experienced.
