My wife and I are both good cooks. We eat very well and we cook everything from fresh. But we are not experts. Bailey's should be the food experts. My meal last night was very poor. Flavourless, luke warm. For 50 Euros of my hard...earned money I expect to eat food that is at the very least as good as I cook and make every day. This was far below that standard. I would recommend you don't eat here. Avoid the gluten free fries. Avoid the chicken supreme. Avoid Bailey's until they get a new chef.More

The chef's idea of a warm salad with chickpea was to toss the chickpeas in curry powder. Raw curry powder on chickpeas is not my idea of subtle!More

We had both lunch and dinner in the Bistro which was very good, the menu was varied to suit all tastes and the bar done a good pint or two of the black stuff. The service and food was very good for lunch & dinner.
