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.

Having visited Henry’s Bistro previously with my husband, I booked a family meal there last Friday night. We all received a warm greeting from the owner Dermot on arrival, and were shown to a lovely round table in the centre of the restaurant. Our orders were taken swiftly, I went with the hake special for main, and the wonderful berry bread and butter pudding for desert. Everyone really enjoyed their meals, from rack of lamb, salmon and chorizo risotto and pork belly, the food was again exceptional, well presented and delicious. We found the staff really friendly and helpful, and there is a lovely atmosphere here. We didn’t feel rushed and were told we had the table for the evening. This is firmly becoming my favourite place for a special meal in Ennis, it really is very well worth a visit, and was glad that my family agreed!

Myself and my two kids called in without booking as we had read such great reviews. Our contact details were taken as per Covid protocol and we were taken to our seats by a very pleasant young girl who informed us of the specials that evening. I had the lamb shank that fell off the bone and there was a real depth of flavour to the jus. The veg was cooked perfectly. The kids cleaned their plates and thought has been put in to elevating the kids meals to a higher level. A lovely gentleman, I take to be Henry himself, checked how our evening was going. As we left my daughter said "Daddy, that was a little bit fancy and really nice". From the mouths of babes they say!

Henry's is a wonderful restaurant. The waiting staff was warm, welcoming and professional. We were hugely impressed. Calamari was a special starter on the night we visited and it was very good as were the fishcakes. Risotto with chorizo served beneath salmon fillet was a real highlight. It was really comforting on a particularly cold night. We completed our meal with Eton mess and chocolate fondant. Both were perfect. Many thanks for a great experience. Looking forward to returning very soon.

Our extended family had a meal in Henrys Bistro on Saturday evening last week and as it was my first visit I was very much looking forward to the experience. The menu looked very interesting and the description of the specials that evening sounded great. However, we were quite disappointed with both the flavour and the quantities of the food considering the pretty high prices being charged. The starters were tiny, particularly the black pudding tartlet and the mains when they were presented to the table simply under-impressed. I had the pork belly main course and the person beside me had the cod. Both were incredibly small. When I requested some additional vegetables and potatoes I was informed that normally one bowl is provided for two people to share. This bowl was very small and would barely be enough for one person. Our server then brought over one more bowl but I was left in no doubt that this is not normal practice. The desserts on the other hand were great so hats off there. Maye this is what we have to expect post pandemic. If this is the case I think I'll be dining at home more often in the future.

Hi Ronan, Thanks for your post, we're calling this one "Vegetable-Gate". It was unfortunate we had to explain our Vegetable serving standard, but honestly your initial comments led us to it ( we certainly are not mean) We sold 16 Black Pudding Tarts, 9 Pork Belly and 22 Cod on the evening in question, no other customer had any issues with the size of these dishes or their prices. Ronan, the cost food etc globally is currently only going one way, so I imagine you will be cooking at home a lot more often. Regards, Dermot & Team.

Took a chance and didn’t book the little gem. The very friendly and helpful staff were great. We had 5 mains with a couple of side orders desert and wine and soft drinks for a very reasonable amount. The Coeliac (Gluten Free) guest was very well catered for and it was no trouble at all for them to adapt the dinner they wanted. It was a great start to a wonderful weekend in Ennis. We’ll certainly be back and will recommend Henry’s Bistro to anyone interested. Thanks.

Went to this beautiful bistro last night for dinner. Place was full with very happy diners and happy staff. Starters fish cakes and confit duck were fantastic. Followed my braised beef and rib eye steak. Rib eye was the best I've had out and braised beef was melt in your mouth. Waiting staff were great thank you Lorren and Lisa for the laughs and attentive service. We hope to be back again soon.

Dermot and his team could not be more welcoming to this charming and intimate restaurant. Friendly, efficient service. A fabulous selection to choose from on the menu. Very reasonable priced. You have to try the brioche with mushrooms, spinach and parmesan to start! As I’ve dined here a few times in recent months I’ve tasted a few main course options. The butterflies chicken is divine and the salmon with pea and chorizo risotto is just heavenly. Others in my party have thoroughly enjoyed the lamb shank and the ribeye. No a huge fan of dessert I usually pass up this course but having tasted the berry bread and butter pudding before Christmas I am now hooked (going back for more this Saturday night!) I can’t rate this restaurant highly enough. Enjoy!!!!

Second time visiting. The food is really good, very tasty. Nice presentation. Staff are polite, friendly and attentive. The bread and butter berry pudding is delicious, but to be honest all the desserts are. Good menu choice. Looking forward to visiting again soon.

Was lucky enough to get a table last minute on a Saturday, it was in a corridor section, would have liked to be in the main restaurant but it was last minute so can’t complain and it was a great experience. The staff are outstanding, so friendly, professional & extremely well trained, at one point my daughter dropped her spoon and a young chap looked around the corner and appeared with another without question. Service was swift but at no point rushed. The food was also delicious, squid, salmon, fish & chips all fresh & very tasty with the winning dish being the lamb shank, it fell off the bone & melted in the mouth. Perfect evening out, highly recommend.

Stopped for lunch en route to Limerick for a concert Friday 4pm. My daughter and I were greeted warmly as we stepped inside and given a choice of tables to choose from. Fresh water was brought over with the lunchtime menu. Good selection of starters, main courses and desserts. We both choose the scampi which was served inside a scallop dish with a colourful side salad and hand cut, skin on, floury soft on the inside, crispy on the outside chips- yes they really did need that much detail to them, the tastiest chips I have had for a long time! Everything was hot and really tasty. The kitchen is half open so you can see inside. The bathroom was spotlessly clean but let down that there wasn't any soap in the dispenser however hand sanitizer was available. We didn't have time for dessert ourselves but saw 2 fabulous Eton mess with ice cream desserts being served to the table nearby piled high with cream, berries and meringue. The waiter kindly called a cab for another couple who's mobile would not work in Ireland and updated them on its arrival. It's the little things that make an experience enjoyable. I will most definitely be back again and make sure I have time to sample even more if the menu. Thank you

The food was amazing as always. Waiting staff need to be given extra training though. After we sat down, the server came over and asked if we were ready to order. We weren't asked if we wanted drinks while we decided what we wanted. Also we weren't told about the specials. we only knew about them when we heard another table being told about them but by then we had ordered. Finished side dishes, bread basket etc was left on our table all through the meal and weren't taken away when finished with. The table was sticky and needs a proper clean. Small things I know, but it's important to get the small things right.
