Myself and my wife ate there last night ( 20th April '13) for our anniversary. The nicest place I've ever been to in years, couldn't fault anything, food, service, staff, surroundings, etc.

Had dinner in O'Grady's Steakhouse at Gastro recently and it was really great. There were four of us and none of us could have been more complimentary of the food, service and general ambience of the place! The men had the fillet steaks which they are still raving about while I had the chicken as I spotted it heading to another table and changed my order from the fish as it looked so good. The fourth diner had the fish which was cooked to perfection by all accounts. All the ingredients are sourced locally which is really evident in the meat and veg. The wine list also deserves a mention, the house red is divine and very keenly priced both of which rarely go hand in hand. And of course we felt it would be rude not to try the deserts - soooo good - I ordered the malteser cheesecake with a view to sharing but I don't think anyone got a look in. They will just have to go back and get their own!! All in all, great company, great food, great service and great surrounds - who could ask for more??

Celebrated a friends birthday with group of 12 girls on Saturday night. Evening kicked off with a round of cocktails in the comfort of the Front Lounge and its couches. We were then taken to a fab round table by the fireplace which catered easily for the 12 of us and meant we could all chat to each other. o'Grady's Steakhouse @ Gastro did not disappoint - the steaks were melt in the mouth and the deserts were to die for! Couldn't have picked a better venue in all respects, from the food to the service to the setting. Would highly recommend Gastro as the perfect party venue as it really ticks all the boxes!

I was back in Carlow recently for a friend's 40 th birthday, we went for drinks and dinner to Gastro bar and grill. I couldnt believe this was the same place we used to hang out as teenagers in it's old form as Buzz's!! It is so sophisticated and cool , actually hard to believe you are in Carlow! The music and lighting help set the overall tone, and the staff wre friendly and attentive. We had such a great night..thanks to all at gastro!

Stumbled upon this place whilst on a day out in carlow with a friend ... We were greeted instantly on arrival by a really friendly and pleasant waitress who seated us to a lovely table next to the radiator (much appreciated on a freezing cold day) .... My friend and I both opted for the goatscheese melt - we certainly were not disappointed from taste to presentation everything was spot on .. The atmosphere is so cosy and relaxed here we decided to treat ourself to some coffee before we left and were delighted to get a little choccie surprise with it .... something that rarely happens now a days ... over all between the great food & service we received I will definitely be back soon hopefully for dinner next time the evening menu looks very tasty ...
