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.

A group of us ate here for dinner. Service was quick and friendly. I had the trio of fish and it was delicious. Not great for vegetarians as my friend found out... just one dish available but I would definitely eat here again...

This was one of my favourite restaurants in Ireland. Sadly I can't say that now. I used to love getting the chowder as a starter and trio of fish as a main course. I've eaten chowder around the world and only one place in Monterrey...California was better then Naughton's chowder. I hadn't eaten there in years and was REALLY looking forward to trying the chowder again. It was a disaster. Completely different receipe and ingredients. It was just one bowl of lukewarm bland. The trio of fish (another past favourite) was just as bad. Adding insult to injury was the bill..75 euro for two, one Guinness and two glasses of white wine. Its a never again for me and that fills me with sadness.More

Came here for our evening meal and was not disappointed. The batter was light and the cod was cooked to perfection. The staff were great very helpful and jolly. The atmosphere of the place was very welcoming. Would recommend this place to eat.

Excellent restaurant with a beautiful ambience and wonderful food. Prices are fine and service very good. I would highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning asap. One thing that annoyed me as I paid the bill and was tipping our excellent waitress, she...informed me that there was a 10% tip charge already on my bill. There was 7 of us and it clearly states on the Web page that groups of 8 or more will be charged 10% service. I always tip approx 10% but I don't like restaurants taking it for granted that they can charge me 10% more than the prices on the menu. I still gave the girl a tip so it's not the money it's principal. It put a small damper on what was a lovely evening. Outside of the above comment it's a fabulous restaurant with beautifully cooked food.More

Excellent meal again tonight steak cooked to perfection and the fish and chips were delicious. We also had the chocolate fondant which is to die for. The staff are so lovely and very helpful I broke my wrist and they got my steak sliced for...me. Lauren the waitress is brilliant at her job. I highly recommend Naughton's as they really cater for children with a lovely children's menu.More

Great food and cocktails. Service was very good and the ambience was pleasant. However, I was very surprised to go there in August and see that even though they were busy, none of the staff wore masks or visors. Would appreciate if staff would please...wear masks.More

Very hard to get a table this summer. Covid was responsible. Happy to take an early sitting at 5.30 just to have the most delicious scampi. I wasn’t disappointed. It was superb served with chips Ana side salad. We finished off sharing a pavlova which...was a very generous serving. The house white Chilean Sauvignon was perfect.More

We had the bruschetta, crab claws, calamari and prawns. Food is fresh, tasty, well seasoned and cooked to perfection. Portions are big so 1 starter would do 2. I would highly recommend a visit to here. The restaurant is run very well with each table...setting having it's own individual serving table to ensure distance with covid, ingenious.More

Had an evening meal here which was delicious, especially the sticky toffee pudding! However I was surprised to see the waiting staff not wearing masks or visors, although they do keep their distance whilst waiting on you. Also saw quite a number of people entering...without masks. My Husband has a rare condition which comprimises his immune system so I am very aware of social distancing. Please mask up and protect both yourself and others.More

We visited the restaurant after booking well in advance. Sat down at 8:15pm sitting and those who ordered starters received them at 8:45. We were then waiting until 9:50 for the main courses. A number of waiters apologised - none of whom were to blame...for the the wait. We were then offered a round of drinks as a result of the wait (2 soft drinks and 1 alcoholic drink). This round of drinks were charged on the final bill. While finally eating our mains we were told there was no rush on the table and that we could take as long as we wanted....At 10pm at night we had lost most of our appetite and left after paying the bill in full.More
