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.

Chips - Soggy. Chicken Breast - Sinuous fat. Fish Batter - Soft and not crunchy. Not a pleasant dining experience

Filthy dishes, water had stuff floating in it and the waitress brought my cup for tea out and it had bits of food stuck to it and other stains, I was shocked she even thought this was ok to serve, immediatly asked for a new...cup. The other dishes and cutlery also had stains. The food was ok but nothing special and the waitresses were careless, didn’t even take the menus off our table when we ordered and they almost ran off after putting something on the table, giving us no time to ask for more stuffMore

On Sat 14-Aug-21, I led a group of 10 cars on a Classic Run (Sprites n Midgets) over the Sally Gap and down to the Hollywood Cafe for lunch. Our timing throughout the day was tight and we had just 1.25 hours to park, get...seated, order, eat and get away to our next destination on time. Well, it was a very pleasant thing as we drove in (on time), to find staff there to help us park quickly and safely. On entering the covered outdoor area, our reserved seating/tables for 16 were waiting for us. We were attended at once by a number of attentive young ladies and we had very little time to wait until our food was served. I know from comments passed around by members in our group after the weekend, that they were very impressed with the range of food available, and the quality of their selections. Our time there passed very quickly and we had to be on our way. Would I book a group in there again? Yes, absolutely and without a doubt. I doff my hat to Chris and his team for such excellent organisation, courteous service and delicious food.More

Went for a drive around Blessington lakes and took short trip to Hollywood Cafe for pizza with the kids early on Saturday evening. Pizza was excellent. My wife got the vegetarian pizza and it is super tasty. Very customer friendly. Well done Hollywood Cafe.

Being coeliac, eating out is always hit and miss. But the mixed sandwich was absolutely spot on and unlike most other gluten free options, didn't cost more than the normal bread. It was probably even bigger. Very filling with a satisfying cuppa too. I'd definitely...recommend this gem.More

Ate at the hollywood cafe on the way home from glendaloug, the pizza was absolutely sensational proper New York style pizza no overly fancy ingredients. Just good quality, good craft and huge effort put in. The staff were really friendly and nice. When I asked...the chef about the dough and how they make it she came around and chatted to me about their work. Will be back ASAP Coffee was also top notchMore

Stopped in for takeaway scones and Homemade brown bread. It is like stepping back in time. What the owner has done is incredible. I can't wait to eat in here again when lockdown is over. The scones were amazing and the brown bread too. Staff...are just so polite and nice, Don't pass this café by . It is well worth the visit.More
