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.

We had been staying at Druids Glen for a few nights and had seen this restaurant on trip advisor. I foolishly did'nt book in advance as it was closed Mon, Tues. We arrived on the Wednesday night at 5.30pm hoping to get a table, thinking...it would be quiet mid week. Wrong. The nice gentleman who I suspect is the owner, informed us they were fully booked and he only had a couple of seats at the bar. We initially turned down the offer and he wisely offered to show us the bar seats. It was actually a nice quaint, cosy little corner of the building where no-one would be bumping into you or bothering you. On taking up the offer, we were given some water, drinks ordered and food chosen from what was a decent selection on the menu. We both ordered fillet steak which comes with peppered sauce, sauted onions and skin on chips. We had additional sides of champ and onion rings. The wait was'nt long. Well, this has to be up there with one of the best fillet steak diners we have had...ever. And the onion rings...amazing. In fact we were that full after the mains we could not face desert. The price was very good and on looking around at other plates all the food looked 1st class, especially the fish and scampi. So glad we took up the offer of those bar stools. Great food and lovely staff. Hopefully be back some time....with a booking.More

I've been going here for years for two very simple reasons - quality and consistency! This is a restaurant that consistently serves outstanding meals but is not content to rest on this. It is the quality of service that distinguishes The Hungry Monk from initial...welcome to the end of the evening, feeling completely sated and always more than satisfied. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly but never intrusive. In short, a treat to anticipate, a dining experience to enjoy and a memory to savour.More

A wonderful experience from start to finish. Excellent friendly staff full of personality. A homely atmosphere which allows you to relax and enjoy your evening. I had the most delicious steak I ever had, I did not want the meal to end. There was a...varied menu to suit everyone. Lovely wine selection and scrumptious deserts. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a night out.More

I ate here on 30 December and reviewed it in January. Ate again in February, and again on 16 March. Like other reviewers, I also found it chilly in December, but the food was excellent, as it was every time I ate here. Today, the...heat was on 'full blast' and it was very comfortable in the main dining area. Service, food, ambience, value are all excellent. Booking advised, as the place is almost always full. Again - I'll be back soon.More

We had lunch here in late December. We had eaten here before and the food was very nice. We were served by a very pleasant local young lady who was working part time and also studying (we made sure to give her a good tip...which she really appreciated). We were the only people in the part of the restaurant that we were put in. The owner sat on a bar stool the whole time, looking at us. It made us feel very awkward. Also, the place was absolutely freezing so we weren't comfortable and didn't enjoy the nice food as much as we should have. I appreciate that we are in difficult times but some things like heating are an essential.More

Visited Hungry Monk for dinner during a weekend stay in Greystones. We had heard about the popularity of the restaurant and we’re eager to check it out. We sat in the smaller dining bar area and had a great service from Nicholas as our server....The meals were very good. Would highly recommend reservations in advance.More

Drinks, starters, mains, desserts all fantastic, atmosphere was great and the service was attentive and we felt like...old friends. Hopefully back again within five years. On looking back at my photos from our last visit, I realised I’d had the same starter last time, just as delicious. Would definitely recommendMore
