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.

Walked here from our hotel and dined outside. Everything was excellent - friendly service, wonderful bacon, eggs, and waffle. Coffee was piping hot!

Had a lovely lunch, excellent food and delightful staff. And a lovely Spanish red wine. Everything was superb!! There is a new device/service which allows you to tip the waiter/waitress using your card/Revolut. I don’t use cash so couldn’t tip. I will be back!!!

In my opinion, this is the very best restaurant in Athlone. Everytime I visit Athlone, this is my go to restaurant. Joe and Linda (aka the boss) run a fantastic restaurant. When we received our food, it was beautiful. The taste was incredible! I will...be going back to Athlone next year for a few weeks and I will be frequently visiting my favorite restaurant.More

Very hospitable host (Joe) and the staff friendly and helpful - slight delay was organised with extreme grace (our fault as we hadn’t booked) Shop full of lovely foody treats and delicacies Menu very good...and varied - proper grub not cafe style Complimentary taster of soup for everyone in house it seemed Superb - we will be back and thanks for the Aperol spritz!😎More

Went there for lunch on a Sunday. Great sandwiches. Great service. But that caesar salad is a solid, absolute no, no, no. It does not belong with the rest of the menu. Not for ingredients, not for execution, not for presentation, not for price. Chunks...of boiled chicken in disarray is the best way I can describe that, what a disappointment. And then there was the music. A certain type of teenager may enjoy it. But for a "bistro", frankly, silence or a quiet relaxed music would do a lot better. I get it - trying to appeal to a range of audiences - but with prices that are a tad too high for that informal atmosphere and such uneven menu offering, it certainly scared us away for ever: who knows what else is as scary as the caesar salad?More

Myself and my mam visited today at 12 30, it was busy. Met at door with no hello just how many. I said 2 , we were sent upstairs. Nice area and lovely server. Ordered a BLT and a toasted han ,cheese and onion sandwich...with tea for two. Tea came straight away, sandwiches a good while later. BLT was very small and had the lettuse toasted in it. When I went to pay it was€23.80. I thought this was very expensive.More

Lovely atmosphere, lovely staff and lovely food. They sell items produced by local manufacturers. Soup of the day is always soup of the day, and not just vegetable every day like other lazy places!

I visited today. 4 of us. Just looking for a coffee. Got there about 12.40. Busy bistro with a wonder front of house host. Got a table straight away. Given breakfast and lunch menu, wine and desert menus. Between us we ordered 2 coffees, 3...desserts with another coffee later on. New cup brought, refill charged for. It's funny, but sometimes you just get a vibe from the place. All the staff were super friendly, super fresh (for a Sunday morning) and so obliging. There was always staff available and you could tell that this place was a great place to work. The coffe was fab, girls said the wine was delicious, but the deserts were out of this world! White chocolate roulade, choc and raspberry brownie and apple and raspberry crumble - served with the most delicious ice cream. They were unreal. We all tried them all, and they were just delicious. The bistro was busy and we were happy chatting. The staff didnt rush us and were very obliging. Toilets were immaculate, lovely smell with deodorant and period products available. We then went to pay. Our host was happy for us to pay separately. It was then we noticed the most beautiful front of house shop selling some wonderfully local handmade cards, soaps, chocolate and lots more. This is the kind of place I wish I had more locally to where I live. I felt like the bistro is run by someone who has been around and knows what people like, but they have gone over and beyond what you would expect. Small front on the street, but this is definately somewhere I will go back to. I cannot recommend this place enough. Well done on a wonderful establishment.More
