Could not fault this restaurant. Staff were so lovely and efficient. Every single one of them from the minute we arrived. Food was delicious and very well presented. The restaurant had come recommended from a friend of a friend and it was a gorgeous little...find in Cavan.More

My partner and I dined at People's restaurant in June. Overall, we thought the food was very good. Some of the dishes were really nice e.g. the BBQ Pork Chunks and the Rib Eye Steak and there is obviously some talent in the kitchen. That...said, other dishes e.g. the duck were disappointing. We were seated at the edge of a covered area and there was a smell of sewage wafting into the area at times which wasn't very nice to put it mildly but I appreciate that restaurants are working in very difficult circumstances at this time.More

While on a short break to Cavan, my wife and I enjoyed a fantastic dinner in Peoples. We both went for the 2 course early bird menu. I went for the classic burger while my wife had the caesar salad. The burger was cooked to...perfection as were the accompanying chips. The caesar salad was fresh and full of flavour. The desserts were incredible. My wife had the ice cream with honeycomb which she thoroughly enjoyed. I had the sticky toffee pudding which was the finest dessert I have ever tasted. Overall, great food, excellent value for money and friendly, professional staff. We will certainly be back!More

Ate here two nights in a row on a recent visit to Cavan. Have eaten here before so knew what to expect. Food was delicious, good choice on menu and good portions. Coming back to Cavan in October and will probably book again

Well done to the chef! Myself and my partner ordered our dinner treats from your restaurant today. I had the Thai red curry and My parter had the Chicked Burger. Must I say I love Thai red and this one was best I had in...very long time. Cooked with amazing flavour and texture of the veg and chicken was just perfect. The burger had lovely homemade bun and all in it looked amazing too. I would gladly recommend this place to everyone. Thank you all whoprepared my meal and to the smiley waiting staff handling the orders too.More

Early Bird Menu. Huge amount of choice and struggled to choose what to get. Whatever was ordered was amazing. Didn't get the cocktails on this occasion but will definitely be back to try them as they looked great.

I visited this restaurant on a Thursday night. we both had starters and main course. we did not have a desert. I had a steak and my wife had chicken. I asked for a medium rare steak but it was well done. I did not...enjoy it. The staff were badly organised. When I requeted the bill, they were unsure what we had to eat. for a restaurant that came "highly recommended" it was average at best. To be fair we could have hit it on a bad night but I will not be back.More

I’m afraid I didn’t take much notice of the vegetarian options on the menu but I would say that all out dishes were beautiful and I’d imagine that the vegetarian options are likewise.
