Never thought I’d be writing a review for a burger ;-). But the Freddy Burger & Taco Chip were “OUT OF THIS WORLD 🌎 “. Never thought I’d be writing a review for a burger ;-).

What a change from before!! Really disappointing. We had been in Cian's a few years ago before the pandemic..back then it was a really good restaurant. Now it's an expensive burger place...not really recommended

This is not the fancy restaurant pictured here. Its a burger joint. Well, for 17 or 18 Euro EACH burger it has to be some kind of big, gourmet burger extravaganza, right? Wrong! Tastes ok, but it is small and comes wrapped in paper like...a cheap burger joint. The lettuce tasted weird. When I told them that we expected more for the excessive price, I got a “ohh, okay”. Ugh. Waste of an Irish dinner with our limited time here.More

We were very disappointed with the food choice. Menu is full of burgers and there are no alternate choices. We won’t be going back.

Very disappointed as I had heard good things. The service was quite poor with rude and unengaged staff. The food was slow to come out, when it did it was not hot. We got given no cutlery before our food and the glasses were very...clearly not cleaned and there was only 4 tables for them to handle. Definitely not worth the price, won’t be going back any time soon.More

Used to have a very good varied foody menu but it’s now just burgers burgers burgers and only upstairs which is like a bus station canteen with plastic seats and bright lighting. Burger was cold. Even the chips were burnt. 6 of is left sitting...for 10 mins before I had to ask a staff member for some menus water and maybe order some wine😢 should have gone to la Bella vitaMore

Overpriced and v poor quality - visited last night with friends, what is at best a cafe but charges restaurant prices / chips covered in salt, burgers v average and the DIY cheesecake horrible! Service was good but food really disappointing. Complained about 3 dreadful...desserts and were charged for 2, even though none were eaten. To be avoided at night time but I’m sure lovely for coffeeMore

Ordered from Cians about 4 times in total. The food is absolutely delicious, but unfortunately every time I get an order there’s something missing. Super annoying. It’s seems like they’re always way too busy to focus on each order.

Two of us ate hear for lunch. Staff friendly, food was average (soup & sandwiches), nothing spectacular at all. Expensive for what it is. Not sure why the rave reviews.

They have fish on the menu , so gluten free should be an option. Will need reservation unless you go early. It is a small place.

This restaurant is in the centre of town and is very busy, you might be lucky to have a walk in table @ 5 or 6.. if you want to eat here it's best to book in advance as it's very popular.
