“A place for a quick bite”
Review of The Village Grill

The Village Grill
Ranked #8 of 10 Restaurants in Leenane
Cuisines: Irish
Description: Located next to Leenane Post Office. Our visit to The Village Grill was a very negative and dissapointing experience, in great contrast with the other premises nearby. May I humbly suggest Bord Failte check this place out.

Well. When reviewing things, I tend to look at whether the place outperforms or underperforms what can be reasonably expected. You don't evaluate The Village Grill from an fine restaurant point-of-view.This is kind of a fast-food place, simple dishes for a quick bite, as far as I would say. We had lunch there. We got decent enough food for what we expected, and in a friendly enough enviroment. Not a big experience, but worked well for the our purpose and expectations.

We stopped at this small restaurant on the way back from Delphi and despite the crowd that was seen in the area, most other places were closed. We decided to get a bite to eat here and what a disappointment. They were out of steak pie and soup. The server shared they were getting ready for the end of summer season and therefore the options were limited. We ordered a chicken and mushroom pie and a burger. Not good. The pie was obviously frozen and quickly prepared to sve, the birger was the typical grocery store burger, nothing special. The chips/fries were not the yummy crispy fries we have been eating everywhere else in Ireland. It was pricy for the junk food we were served. Don't bother.

Having spent a month traveling the West and South coast of Ireland and eaten in close to 40 restaurants this was one of the 4 worst. Arrived in Leenane in a rainstorm and took a chance for lunch without checking with Tripadvisor. Shepherds pie, burgers and chicken goujons were tasteless frozen junk food and tiiny chicken salad consisted mainly of coleslaw. The bill for this rubbish came to 53 Euro, about $75 and were amazed when they demanded cash only, no cards accepted. Thankfully this disappointing experience was a rare one, but is an unfortunate example of a tourist rip off trap in a beautiful setting. In contrast we ate at Paddy Coyne's in Tully Cross that evening and had a wonderful dinner of mussels, lamb, duck and deserts for about 70 Euro.

Avoid this place.

Fast food and tasty. They let you bring your drink from the pub to enjoy with dinner. Even though they were busy, the waitress was pleasant.

Arrived at lunchtime. The most simple choice on the menu could not be fulfilled. This forced us to go for a second choice which when was just of an inferior quality that does not compare the typical high standard of simple Irish food.

More difficult to digest the food was the high price tag and unhelpfulness of the owner. Customers were made to feel very uncomfortable.

DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT TO ANYBODY!!!
