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.

Enjoyed an amazing Sunday lunch here with a group of family. Food was excellent as was the service. Nice variety in the menu, think traditional Sunday lunch items with an upscale twist. 5 star experience, would recommend.More

Reviewed 10 April 2022

In a nutshell, Not Good. It is regretful to have to say, that if I was an AA Inspector there today, the Brabazon would definitely loose at least one of those Rosettes. I will be objective here, but for a restaurant that is billed as...Double Rosette, you are, I'm afraid, way off the mark based on my visit today. I am aware that establishments are still trying to get back to normal after the past two years, but we have not been in lockdown for a few months and business need to take stock of themselves and actually give what they are promoting. I will make this as accurate and concise as possible. There were 3 of us, my wife, daughter & I. The menu, I felt was not only limited, but had a poor offering. Starters of Soup, Caesar salad, Calamari and a Parfait. Mains of Roast Rib of beef, Chicken Supreme, Grilled Trout and A Pasta dish. Rib of Beef is carvery food, no more than that. I was very disappointed with this, so as I had never seen Rib Beef on any upmarket Restaurant Menu, I figured that it may be something special, so gave it a go, as did my wife and daughter. Rare for me and Well Done for the ladies. I was the only one to order a starter, the Calamari.... good sized portion but Slightly greasy and served without the aioli sauce as per the menu and on a plate far too small for the serving The three main courses arrived and disaster, They were cold! only the roast potato on each plate was hot. We sent them back immediately but my 14yr old daughter elected to keep hers as she was starving and did not want to wait any longer. The vegetables, although were perfectly cooked were also cold. I would also suggest that it be made clear on the menu that the mash was heavily infused with horseradish as it is not something that is to everyone's taste. Knowing the business and Chefs', I made a bet with my wife that the chef is probably making the comment " What the heck is wrong them? you cant have Rare beef and have it hot at the same time!" The Main courses were returned to us shortly afterwards, the Server apologised and you guessed it " Chef did say ......................." The Temperature was slightly warmer than before, but unacceptable, as this is one of the criteria for a Rosette Restaurant that they are to serve food at the correct temperatures, but we elected to continue eating as we did not want lunch to drag out forever. The fresh vegetables, again, cooked to perfection, but barely tepid. For the Record, I would also expect linen table cloths and napkins in a Rosette Restaurant On a positive note, the Beef was very tasty and tender and the jus was rather good and the two desserts the ladies had were also very good, a Banoffee & Carrot cake. The coffees ware also decent. The Servers did also comp the two glasses of wine in an effort to make up for the misgivings. It is such a pity that more care was not taken with the food. The Restaurant is in a lovely setting and has a nice garden and outdoor dining area. The Question I ask myself, would I go back to give this establishment a second chance? Well, I’m not sure.More

We had the 7 course 'farm to fork' tasting menu and every bite was delicious. I had the recommended accompanying wines and it really added to the experience. Food was so tasty and beautifully presented. Waiting staff were so helpful, friendly and knowledgeable - it...all added to the experience.

I am hard to please at the best of times but in this case this is an easy 5* review. Excellent staff, friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and so welcoming even at the end of a long Sunday. Ambience super and the food was excellent - presentation...and flavour of all courses - perfect. Attentive staff cleared and enquired with perfect timing.

Really enjoyed our lunch here at the weekend, food, ambience, staff and facilities all magnificent but NOT one member of staff checked for a covid certificate which was quiet shocking Everyone mentioned this at our table as we are so used to being asked for...it everywhere else we go throughout Ireland. This would stop me going back (even though good covid measures were been taken in the restaurant and by staff) but surely asking for a covid cert when people arrive at the Brabazon Restaurant is a big priority at the moment.More

Last year we had an amazing lunch here. All through the last lockdown I kept dreaming of that lunch. One of the first things we did when lockdown was lifted was to book lunch. With high expectation and more than a little trepidation, today was...the day. Could it actually be as good as I remembered! I am so happy to say it was as wonderful as I remembered. The setting is beautiful, the food is fab and the staff are so welcoming, friendly and professional. Can’t wait to go back - already booked for two weeks time!More

We read about this restaurant, so decided to try it out. Firstly its well sign posted, the gardens and buildings beautifully maintained and plenty of parking, with easy access for people with reduced mobility. The restaurant tastefully decorated, staff very friendly and knowledgeable. We enquired...about various drinks etc, with excellent feedback. The menu offers decent variety, and well presented, flavours and taste of the food excellent, very good attention to detail..we all just wished portions a little larger, but overall an excellent experience, and will be back when in the area, and the covid regulations strictly adhered to. Definitely worth a visit.More
