Where to start....disgusting scallops that tasted frozen overcooked and then microwaved within an inch of their life. Drowned in cream. Sheer starvation forced me to swallow them even now the memory brings an urge to run to the toilet. The service....well laughable...my little son asked was "the waitress" going to get him! She was cranky and surly with the beer belly to match! Only the old alcoholic males who clearly frequented the establishment received smiles and some disgusting flirting considering one of them was old enough to be her grandfather. All in all not a nice place to visit nor do they seem to want you to visit so sorry rainbow would not recommend!!

Just wish we had of seen these reviews first and also spoke to local shop owners before enduring hell.The order was 2 pizza's,1 cheeseburger and 1 steak,well the so called pizza's were hard and tasteless,the cheeseburger arrived without cheese but with a dark brown sauce over it and the steak was still mooing.1 waitress ran out saying she couldn't take it anymore.Overall the worst restaurant we have ever been in,it's just an embarrassment to a lovely town.

This place is mank. The food was terrible. The service was appalling - the waitress had the nerve to display a love bite on her neck and management to thick to notice or bother doing anything about it. Worst of all, when we had finished paying and left, the owner met us on the sidewalk outside and tried to persuade us to go in for an evening meal - he didnt event recognise us as customers who had eaten five minutes previously. HSE and Failte Eireann - do your bit and call into this shambles of a place.

I echo all of the well-crafted and strongly voiced opinions abc reviews stated above. I exhort you, travelers, to consult Trip Advisor PRIOR to strolling down O'Connel Street. Our experience was identcal to the reviewers above, including The Lure, The Bait and Switch, the Overcooked an Severly Overpriced Fare and the unreasonable and argumentative treatment after noticing we were overcharged. What a horrible, horrible place. atbrhe end id this Rainbow, there is no pot of gold, there is bucket of night soil. DO NOT EAT AT RAINBOW RESTAURANT.

We were on our holidays in the fabulous Glengarriff and unfortunately we picked the wrong place to eat!!

I ordered lasagne which to my disappointment was cheese with a tiny tiny bit of mince meat. I couldn't even eat most of it as it was simply all cheese, which was sickening.

The other person I was with ordered a chicken dish, but the wrong chicken dish came out, which was a honest mistake. But when the correct meal came, the chicken wasn't very tasty at all!

This was unfortunate as the two young girls serving us were lovely and so friendly! The owner and his wife were too pushy and any time anyone came within 5 feet of the restaurant they were pressurising the people to come in.

So if your visiting Glengarriff I would avoid here and go to the pub at the top of the town as it is much nicer!
