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.

Went with my wife for breakfast, she ordered French toast and it was excellent. Unfortunately my BLAS breakfast with poor, ordered poached eggs and got fried eggs. Bacon was so undercooked and cold. Asked for it to be cooked some more and it came back...as thrown on a dirty grill as it was covered in black and only cooked on one side. Very dissatisfied overall.More

Had breakfast here on a Monday morning while traveling. The Blas breakfast was excellent, as was my sister's French toast. The room is a beautiful setting and the staff were as welcoming as you could ever imagine!

Went for lunch. My friend got the fish tacos which were delicious. I got the chicken and chorizo sandwich, unfortunately not worth the money. The chicken was inedible, extremely dry and tough. Was not sure how it was cooked for it to turn out this...way. Nobody came to check on the table, so had to wait until afterwards when they cleared the plates. When we mentioned it all the lady said was 'sorry about that', and we were charged the full bill. Customer Service does not seem to be at the forefront of the restaurant.More

Where can I start to speak about this restaurant? Well, I have personal experience with five star restaurants throughout Europe, and Uk and Ireland, through my work. But this restaurant and their staff have brought five star meaning to a hole new level. From their...greeting you at the door, taking your order , to the presentation of wonderful food , food that I defy anyone that love gourmet food to find fault with , the humble genuine manners of the staff, and ambiance of the restaurant is outstanding.

Drove an hour to get here for breakfast as we really wanted to try it. Both ordered the Blas platter, but the menu doesn't explain that this is half portions. Both our porridge were good, but the lemon curd pancakes was definitely not value for...money - one pancake! The avocado on toast was woeful. Avocado was completely pureed. No dressing on the dish and so bland. We drove home and made a second breakfast for ourselves. The staff were very friendly but the wait for food was unacceptable.More

Cannot fault Blas restaurant from staying at the Gateway Lodge hotel except that it doesn’t open for evening meals. Best breakfast experience by far so far on our two week tour of Ireland :)

We stopped here for lunch. We had no reservation, but the waitress led us to a table straight away. The choices on the menu were varied, which I like. I ordered the quinoa chicken salad. It tasted fantastic. My husband had the burger, and it...said it was full of flavour. Our daughter had the open steak sandwich with peppercorn sauce. She thought it was amazing. The decor is modern and bright. The staff were all lovely and very attentive. We'd highly recommend Blas as a great place to eat.More

I have to commend Blas on it's staff, service but most importantly on it's food! We called in for breakfast one Sunday morning after a long drive. Recommended by a friend it did not disappoint. There is lot's of choice here from a very tasty...Full Irish to pancakes and french toast and the 'on trend' crushed Avocado or Eggs Beneditct. Something there to please the whole family. Glad to note that the tea and coffee were continually replenished too. The full Irish comes in two sizes large and small. Unless you are famished and have a great appetite then don't attempt the large one. I did and struggled to finish it! But it was so delicious. What I liked here was the breakfast came with two eggs and when one of our group asked if they could have a fried and a scrambled egg , 'no problem' was the reply. The scrambled egg is in itself worthy of mention, Buttery, well seasoned and flavoursome. It's not often I find staples like this worth of a mention but in this case it was one of the stars on the plate. The French toast and pancakes went well with our younger element. The pancakes were accompanied by crispy bacon ,berries, syrup and mascarpone The French toast also had similar accompaniments. Can't make up your mind then you can have both on the one plate. The prices are ok too. 12.95 e for a large breakfast and 10.95 e for a smaller version (excluding drinks) A resounding accolade is that we can't wait to return and try Lunch and Dinner or even revisit breakfast.More

No matter when I stop here whether it’s breakfast or lunch everyone is greeted with such a warm Welcome whether it’s your fist visit or a repeat visit ( like me). Everything is tasty and when in doubt I just ask and they’ll make recommendations...to fit my needs. Whether it’s an overnight stay with a breakfast that keeps you full for hours. I’m always recommending Blas and they know me by Desmond from Ardara. And Katie the Manager goes way out of her way to make your visit a memorable one to remember.More

We were disappointed to read that this restaurant only does superb breakfasts and lunches but not dinner....so ordered takeout as late in the afternoon as possible and then reheated it later for our dinner. Absolutely delicious lamb shank with all the trimmings. The staff were...extremely accommodating, friendly and helpful. Highly recommend....can park in the hotel free parking area when you pick up your order :)More
