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.

This was recommended by hotel staff as a good place to try. Not too far to walk to from The Clayton Hotel. We booked online just to make sure and that was a simple thing to do. Menu does seem to be reduced a little...from the online photos however there’s plenty of choices. The food was really good and spiced with just the right amount of heat. Portion size was perfect and it was very reasonable for the price.More

Have eaten here before and loved it, food, service, decor, it ticked all my boxes so I was disappointed tonight, very limited menu, poorly cooked, fajitas were just plain wrap, no lettuce, no grated cheese, coffees sent back as it was cold, 2nd one was...as well! Such a shame as its a beautiful restaurantMore

Ate here last night for my birthday meal. Lovely food, lovely drinks. Staff were OK not overly friendly. Food was very tasty but portions way too small for nearly 20 euro a meal

Food was nice, atmosphere and interior in the restaurant was nice too. It was 4 of us and we all got different dishes, I had mussels in vine and garlic sauce for starter and that was really delicious, for the main course I had lamb...shank and that was bit over salty but meet was tender, one person in our group ordered steak medium well but actually got almost rare... Service were very interesting because there is actual robot who brings the food, staff were really young but they were really nice and polite. I would go back againMore

Two of us called into Marco Polo for Sunday lunch. We started with glasses of RIESLING WINE. For mains, I had the YANG PANG CHICKEN with FRIED NOODLES, and C had the CHICKEN AND GREEN PEAS with PAPPARDELLE. For dessert, C had the 3 COMBINATION...OF ICE CREAM and I had a HOT CHOCOLATE. The ambience in Marco Polo was uplifting, the staff were helpful (as was the Robot) and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Till the next time in Marco Polo!More

Have been coming to Marco Polo for years, great spot for all occasions but unfortunately there’s just not good vegan options. There’s no vegan option for starters other than the salad or bruschetta but they have to be without the cheese, same for main course....Also shocking that they don’t even have dairy free milk so can’t have tea or coffee at the end. No dessert options not even sorbet. I used to love this place but honestly with every other restaurant in the city having vegan options I’m just not bothered coming here anymore. Such a shame because when I do change the food to suit my dietary requirements I enjoy it but having to order the same things and make the same changes after years it’s just an inconvenience coming here now. For should a trendy restaurant you’d expect them to keep up with the times.More

Best meal I’ve had in a long, long time. Truly sensational. The muscles to start oh. my. days. The service was incredible so fast and the young fella was sound and had a funny accent. Would recommend highly. The end.

I enjoyed my experience of this restaurant. The food was delicious but my boyfriends slow cooked lamb was freezing cold in the middle and had to be sent back,which has resulted in him being very sick. The manager just walks around looking angry and doesnt...seem to help the staff if they are under pressure. Overall a nice experience apart from undercooked foodMore

The food and service was excellent. My beef feather blade was absolutely delicious! So tender and juicy. The restaurant was very busy and there was a good atmosphere. Looking forward to returning.

Went after my graduation with 6 family members, we pre booked or table. minute we walked in i knew it was gonna be great !! staff were very polite they gave us table options were would like to sit which was great. we were seated...in a great booth very comfy. we ordered from the main menu. big variety to choose from from Irish, Italian and Asian cuisine. To be fair we ordered across the menu from steaks, fajitas, burgers and pasta dishes all the food looked amazing. The family couldn't fault it at all. I had BBQ ribs than sweet chili chicken with rice + chips was very flavorful, great quality with generous portions. The serves were great very quick and the serves engaged in conversation which is rare these days added to the experience. also to note the place is so clean and follows strict covid-19 guidelines which was great and made us feel at rest. The place really has the wow factor. The cost is good too if it was any cheaper be afraid i was robbing them. You just have to go.More

The Staff where nice and efficient. We had a starter and Main course. The Starters where good. The Mains were ok. We where kind of put of by a member of staff shouting at another member of staff who was working behind the bar. This...went on for about 20 minutes and just seemed unprofessional.More
