Booked a meal for 2 on a Thursday night and honestly didn't know what to expect re Covid restrictions/regulations but I must say that Muldoons had the restaurant set up in the most wonderful way, adhering to all Covid safety regulations in such a way...that it didn't interfere with the ambience or atmosphere. We were brought to our table after signing in (leaving name and number for close contact info) and got our pre dinner drinks. We ordered the signature dish , I had Chicken, my husband had Beef. The food was just out of this world. The flavours and presentation were exquisite. The side dishes were really lovely, sauteed mushrooms were wonderful. I could go on and on, but I would really recommend people to go there and try it for themselves. The service was fantastic, The girls went out of their way to make sure that every need was taken care of. Nothing was a problem or an inconvenience. I can't commend the service enough and my husband and I would like to give Caitlyn (hope that's how she spells it) a massive shout for being absolutely fantastic. She made us feel like we were the only ones there and she catered for every single whim that we had. Thanks so much for a really memorable night out for us. We are currently planning to visit again soon and I honestly can't wait!More
