I had a table booked for January 14th at 5.30pm for my boyfriend's 30th birthday dinner. I had booked it in December to be sure we could get a booking. Arrived to the restaurant at 5.15 to be informed that since the new year they...have been closing at 5. Why they didn't email me about this I have no idea. They didn't appear to even have my booking written anywhere. Fran the manager had to check his emails to make sure that what I was saying was even accurate. This meant we obviously couldn't have our table. Fran rang Amicus for us to get us a table there but I have to say I was very disappointed. This had been my first time visiting 14a in a number of years as I had a very poor experience in there before also (2018 review available on here also). This was supposed to be the opportunity for me to fall back in love with the restaurant as it used to be a favourite of mine. However two negative experiences in a row has probably done it for me and I won't bother returning.More

Stopped off for lunch Tuesday.. Server ( Paula ) was very pleasant, offered a variety of seating arrangements , inside and out. Weather was reasonable, so we opted for outside. While waiting, the weather changed, and Paula, offered another table immediately.. nice touch.. Food arrived...on time.. as she said it would. Lunch menu is excellent value. and the service is first rate. Cannot add anymore... try it yourself...More

Went here with a friend for a quick brunch and ended up staying for an hour and half for dessert too. Good quality food and a lovely atmosphere!

Firstly, the welcome and service was very good. I ordered the breakfast hash, with am Americano. My daughter ordered the mini breakfast with flat white. The hash was swimming in a pool of liquid. The fried potatoes tasted like they were cooked much earlier in...the day and were greasy. The coffee was dreadful and tasted like ash. The mini breakfast was just 'ok'. When the waitress asked us how it was we told her and she said that she would "let them know" It was a busy spot and the pancakes looked like a popular choice. Disappointing!More

We stopped for a short break, were happily seated outside, and just ordered desserts and coffee to watch the world go by. Service was good overall. Coffee was super, desserts (malteaser cheesecake and chocolate fudge cake) were only okay. The main menu has lots of...choice, and having seen incredible looking burgers and fish & chips go past us to other diners next time we will come hungry!!More

Great food and great service can’t complain. Great for breakfast. Slight wait but expected when the place is popular. Definitely recommend.

Terrible time recently at 14a. Got seated by the waiting staff without issue. Places out order within minutes but had to wait for 47 mins for our food. The veg appeared to from frozen, the salmon was very average and the steak was horrible. Poor...quality of meat and poorly cooked. We opted for rustic potatoes which came as deep fried cubes. The garnish with the steak was well past its best and was wilting. We then reordered a second glass of wine. They brought a different wine from what was ordered and when asked to replace this the waiter commented it was the fault of the “useless” girl inside. Dessert menu was lacking and we decided to get out. €62 for a €20 meal. Won’t be back unfortunatelyMore
