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.

We kicked off a lovely birthday weekend with lunch here yesterday. Lovely local produce, especially nice salads. Great staff. Nice to see good vegan options. We asked for a number of variations to the menu and were told “no problem, if it can be done,...we’ll do it”. Very relaxed environment. Wine licence 🍷. Lovely!More

Just stopped in with a local for a coffee, but I wanted mineral water. Waitress told me to go and look. Owner came out and made it pretty clear she wanted to know why I was hanging around their display area! The only time in...Ireland that I felt a British accent somehow triggered a reaction. Coffee and water were good, just the method of delivery.More

My family and I were greeted by Ann McDonald who welcomed us. Great friendly atmosphere. The full Irish breakfast was excellent and well priced too. Ann is a nice lady and we will be back again. Highly recommended.

Stopped by while in New Ross. Service with a smile… Efficient too. Food was yummy… From the seafood basket, to the vegetable curry to the hake and even the burger. Portion sizes left us all satisfied… and let’s not talk about the scrumptious desserts… well...and truely satisfied… Never mind the Kennedy attraction of New Ross; Ann McDonalds cafe is worth checking out.More

Stopped for breakfast for 2 and were immediately seated outside with our dog. The owner attended us immediately, despite being short staffed. She also brought a water bowl for the woofer. Food arrived promptly. The portions on the smashed avocado toast, with egg and bacon...were unbalanced. Too much bread, too little avocado. Bacon was not as crispy as expected. The pancake stack was tasty however there was too much syrup added and again bacon was not crispy. Overall a nice meal with exceptional customer service. We would recommend a visit.More

I returned here again with my son this time. I Can’t recommend the home cut chips. They are delicious. Our food was fresh & very hot. The girls were so friendly and couldn’t be anymore helpful. On the way out my son got a lollipop...from the owner which was very kind. We will definitely be back.More

Staff were very friendly and polite but the food was very disappointing. Chips were only warm and as for the thai fish cakes, very unpleasant.

All food was very tasty and real comfort food on a cold winters day. Kids burgers were massive and v...tasty. The chips were yummy proper home cut chips!

I was in New Ross on business with my colleagues. I found Ann McDonald’s Cafe on our first day. I continued to go here for the few days we were in the locality. There was an excellent menu for both day and evening. There was...a wide range on the menu. The Food was very reasonable & delicious. The wine list was equally as good. I highly recommend this establishment to anybody. We will be back 🤗More

We went in here for breakfast thinking it looked like a nice place but honestly can say the coffee & toast was the best if it! Ordered a full Irish & scrambled egg & bacon & everything seemed to be deep fried! Rashers were turned...up at edges, full Irish plate was dripping in grease, really with all health warnings!! I would stay well clear as it was a bad experience & not sure where you’re getting eggs they were tasteless!More

Went with my partner the other day for breakfast as she started a new job recently and I wanted to surprise her. we were sat at the back of the Restaurant we were told we would have to leave in 45 mins as someone would...be coming in for our table. As a result we weren’t able to relax for the duration of our meal as we were rushing to have our food eaten. Only to be told at the end our meal they didn’t need our table after all! I ordered the breakfast wrap & orange juice which I reluctantly paid for. my partner then ordered the fry without beans and mushrooms but the whole plate was covered with them I was going to complain but my partner didn’t want me making a scene. I don’t know where they are sourcing their orange juice but if I wanted orange juice from the Congo I would of bought a plane ticket over and I still would of paid less. Needless to say I was disappointed and will not be back if you are willing to take out a second mortgage to have orange juice then it might appeal to you but if not then I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant.More

Fabulous food. I order a chicken satay panini and deviated from the menu to have goats cheese also. This was no problem for staff. My husband had a breakfast roll and said it was the nicest one he has ever had. Coffee was perfectly made...( I am fussy about coffee!) We were sitting outside and staff were so helpful and checked on us several times. We were not rushed into finishing our food. I unfortunately left a parcel underneath my table and when contacted they were so helpful in getting it to its destination. Will Definately be back for the chicken satay....... Amazing......More
