Room 8 is the best café that I have ever been in Ireland. The quality of the food ingredients are better than anywhere else J have been over the past 12 months and the dishes (in this case SuperFood Salad with added chicken and Falafel)...is unreal, as is the Chicken Bang Bang. Staff very nice too and attentive. The coffee and desert is top notch too. Cannot give enough high praise.More

First time here. Waitress and waiters are so attentive and lovely. We were sorted pretty fast with a seat. Waiter lovely informed us that our food came from two different kitchens so each other’s food may come out at different time which is okay. I...had the chicken burger and it was lovely! Little burnt on the bap but that’s okay! Fries were amazing! Still considering desert.More

Strolling through Navan the night before a wedding, we were surprised by this lovely little restaurant with good humoured personnel and lovely food and wine. I can recommend the cod. It brought us in the right spirit for the day to come.

I was in Room 8 for breakfast last week, as i was up in Navan visiting family. All week long i was looking at the menu and was so looking forward to my visit to Room 8, as i knew it was going to be...wonderful.As suspected i wasn't disappointed! I had the vegetarian omelette and it was just fantastic, who knew an omelette could be so flavorsome!!! The girl who served us was lovely and friendly. We had a small wait outside for a few minutes, and while we were eating there was a constant crowd outside waiting in the rain, a testament to the good food served here. Am already looking for another reason to visit the family so i can dine here again.More
