Was there with friends for a pint and meal. Absolutely lovely chicken wings and steaks. The Staff was a bit weird(not Irish) but so helpful and friendly. Really enjoy that night. Definitely will call again...

Lovely room. Chilled music. Great selection of wines by the glass and endless cocktail choices. Delicious antipasto and cheeseboards too!

I stumbled upon Avenue last week with a friend. I've eaten in most restaurants in Maynooth but am rarely on that side of town so I never came across Avenue. But it is by far THE best restaurant in Maynooth! We got the set menu. I had a Caesar Salad to start and my friend had the Depp Fried Brie.... More

The food was excellent and served in a timely manner. The waitress was very attentive and even tried to find out what variety of... More

We had a great experience at this restaurant, lovely food and pleasant staff. The Sticky toffee pudding and butterscotch sauce were unbelievably good.

Three of us dined here recently for Sunday Lunch. The food was delicious, with a wide range of dishes available, the service was great and the staff were lovely and friendly. The decor is lovely. The restaurant was very busy, which is always a good sign. We will definitely return to this fabulous restaurant and we're already spreading the word... More

I have to say any birthday, Xmas gathering , work do or just a catch up early bird without a doubt I go here! I constantly recommend to anyone wanting a lovely meal to go here! I do agree it is pricey but the early bird menu is an option. It's always a treat to go there. I'm obsessed with... More
