On our first evening in Ireland, tired, this was a joy. At 7 pm we were fortunate to get the last free table. We ordered the fixed price menu because of the value, and because it seemed simple. It was fabulous. The portion sizes were...huge even by American standards, but we struggled not to leave much because everything was delicious. Lovely gracious service by the small but efficient staff too. A memorable meal. I highly recommend this place.More

Food as always so good, service not great on most recent visit. Assuming understaffed at the moment as ate lunch here on Friday and the service wasn’t great at all. Took our waiter quite a while to come over and when he did, he took...the food order quickly running away without asking anything about drinks - looked slightly put off when I asked for a wine list and he threw the menu down on front of my mother (we just kind of laughed). Food was so so nice as always, couldn’t fault it. We asked for the bill - waiting 15 minutes before approached till to pay (no big deal) where a lovely waitress looked after us. This chap really wasn’t interested - never came back again, walking slowly past us multiple times and then heard table beside us ask could they order off him (after he didn’t engage with them for a good while).More

We had lunch in Town Hall Cafe today and the food was excellent. Great mix of home cooked food and an amazing choice. Pascal was so pleasant and friendly and I would highly recommend Town Hall for a lovely Sunday lunch.

First off the positives, lovely place, nice atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff, and a nice wine list. Thought the menu was a little underwhelming and the food wasn't that great. Have to give props to the desert though, which was great. All in all, good...night, good guiness and wine and a Catchup with friends.More
