Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Really unimaginative Menu (what is yellow curry!) but vicious prices. Nobody objects to paying for quality and something different but 36 euros for steak and chips is extremely excessive. However the steak was tender.

Stopped off for lunch. We had a Leek & Broccoli soup and Chicken Wings for starters followed by two burgers which were very enjoyable. Served by a pleasant and attentive staff. The restaurant itself was spotless and had a nice ambiance with a great log...fire burning. We commented on how the tables were not on top of each other which was welcome in these Covid times. Will definitely be backMore

Really nice spot sitting outside in sun. Thai chicken salad was great but the beef in the burger was extremely poor quality and full of grizzle which was surprising as they described it as ‘dry aged’ on the menu. It seemed it was cooked from...frozen and not a little bit grizzly but full of grizzle and cartilage - and it was certainly not dry aged. The young girl serving us was excellent especially as it was very busy. The Thai chicken salad was very good. This place is priced like the shelbourne but it is in Roundwood.More

Stopped in here for a bit of lunch today. We were asked for vaccination proof at the door, but not photo-id. We had Thai Chicken Salad (€16) & the Fish & Chips - both delicious. Lots in the salad & loads of cashew nuts -...yum. Batter on fish was really crispy & chips were good (though a modest portion). With that we had a pint of Coors & a long neck bottle of Bulmers. Total bill was €43. Service was very good & friendly. Overall very nice - would give 5 stars if a little cheaper.More
