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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I visit Deelish quite regularly and I am never disappointed with the food but the service can be very hit and miss. All of the staff are very young and I should probably cut them some slack because of that but sometimes the service can...be very good then other times it can be atrocious. Myself and my partner visited here last weekend and the young girl passed by our table and smiled and said “I’ll be with you in a moment, then she proceeded to clean off tables and reorganize seats before finally after I asked her menus she got them for us, we waited 10 minutes to be handed two menus! Other than that the food is always good.More

Food was tasteless (Chicken and Mushroom Vol a Vont and a chicken wrap with horrible fries). Giggling teenage staff more interested in joking with each other than serving customers. Despite this gave a tip but till waitress didn't even says thanks. Will not return.

Yet again Deelish impressed. On May 25th last we used Deelish to cater for my daughters Communion. Everything was piping hot and very tasty. Plenty of food. Eddie is a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend Deelish for any function. AM Mullen.

Nice to step into a warm restaurant and then enjoy lunch. Good blackboard selection and my wife opted to have the vegetable soup while I ordered the beef lasagna and a cappuccino. Food delivered piping hot , very generous helpings for the price, and we...both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Waitresses pleasant and organized. Popular venue.More

We took a quick stop and had some lunch here. Katie was serving us and went above and beyond what is expecting of a waitress. Friendly service, a smile and full of chat. Recommend this place more based on the service we received from Katie...- a joy to deal withMore

Stopped here for quick bite on a weekday at lunch time and had the omelette which was accompanied by some fries and side salad, just €8.95. A very tasty omelette freshly made and good overall portion. Staff were friendly and professional, the service was prompt...and the place seemed quite clean, including the toilets. Coffee not too bad, but I prefer a better kick from my coffee.More

Service by friendly local teenagers. Great portions. Plain youthful decor. Good selection of simple meals. No big pretence, just good food at a decent price.

We regularly get takeaway from Deelish but on this rare occasion we managed time to visit the restaurant for a sit down meal.

Family lunch here recently. Three adults & three young children. High chair supplied for the almost two year old. Great lunch menu, including ‘specials’ written on a board, all sounding very tasty. Children’s menu too. Very nice friendly, helpful staff. We all enjoyed our choice...of food and it was very reasonable indeed. A very nice experience indeed. Open on Sundays too!More

We asked Deelish to cater for breakfast for the bridal party themorning of my wedding in July. I had heard many good reports about them but we were extremely disappointed. We asked for two flasks of coffee and instead received one labelled tea and one...labelled coffee. The coffee flask did not work or pour properly so we had to pour it into a pot, which resulted in it going cold quickly. It didn't taste great so we ended up making our own. The tea tasted unusual and we think maybe had some coffee mixed in. We didn't drink this either, instead made our own. My mother is coeliac and so we asked for gluten free bread or toast. We received one slice of gluten free bread. We expected toast and scones and only received brown bread. The rashers we received were rock hard and inedible.The rest of the food was ok albeit quite greasy. Most of it wasn't eaten. We were very disappointed as it was a special occasion we had hoped for better.More

I ate here twice last week, both occasions I was very happy with the food I ordered and received. I had a baked potato with beans and cheese the first day and the veggie lasange the second. I fancied something nice so had some drizzle...cake the second time, it was absolutely "dee-ish". Very reasonably priced, you never have to wait too long. I'll definitely be back again.More

Was here today for two lunches I have to say it was the worst I ever had. A first year commis chef would have produced better .it was so bland cabbage and mashed potato so watery with no seasoning whatsoever. THE portion of meat was...so small It would pass for half portion and so dry and tasteless maybe just aswell it was small as I threw in the bin Disgusting!!!!More
