From the moment we walked in, we felt at ease.......we had lunch, which was a salad, and was gorgeous.......much more than just a salad.......a real family run place, and we have heard that meals in the evening are just as good......whether you want a tea and a scone or a bigger meal, for value and service, this is the place.

I can't begin to describe what a delight John O'Connor and family are. The food was fantastic, as well as the service. They make you feel special. John made the trip to Ireland especially nice for this 73 year old lady. If I could have I would have taken him home. Thank you, John for the memories.

John O'Connor and the folks at the Arches combine wonderful, friendly and gracious hospitality with excellently prepared and presented food and the end result is a delightful dining experience! John and his colleagues make you feel like part of their family...on our second visit they even remembered that one of our party had been a bit under the weather on our previous visit...

On our first visit i enjoyed a very well prepared chicken stuffed with ham and a lovely bread and herb stuffing...my husband also enjoyed the chicken while other members of our party enjoyed the lamb and our sick friend found the soup to be lovely. The plumb pudding and apple tart for desserts were delightful.

On our second visit i enjoyed a perfectly prepared salmon while my friends had the lamb, a perfectly prepared plaice and my husband had the steak...all were excellent as were the wonderful soup and the lovely chocolate cake and apple tart for dessert. The chips for the table were a pleasant afdition to the wonderful potatoes and vegetable medley.

We would highly recommend the Arches to any one looking for good food servedv in a pleasant and congenial atmosphere.

I have eaten in this restaurant a couple of times this year, for lunch and evening dinner. The food is exceptional and the service is second to none. I would highly recommend this restaurant if vising Adare. Tip: Try the chocolate cake for dessert!! you won't regret it.
