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.

Pizzas were smaller than ordered. Also they were cold, dry and poorly filled. Furniture was outdated and the chairs were rock-hard. Wouldn't recommend.

Very good food despite the negative comments here. Service not to slow. Staff not that friendly indeed.

Needed feeding and decided on finding somewhere for a basic burger. Enterd to find the family sitting having dinner at one of the tables, nobody else within. The teenage son brought us a menu and we ordered, the dad spoke good English but mainly kept...it to himself. Pub was fine for us, and would be liked by backpackers but not for a romantic evening with your partner.More

Yesterday I went to the mcelroys on the recommendation of a friend and I really do not regret anything, the girl treated me as if she were her friend who visits her house, the food is delicious, the taste is something indescribable, the food is...slow but it was worth everything , it was worth waiting for everything, and craft beer, the richest I've tasted, Excellent restaurantMore

Possibly some of the worst beef burger we've ever been served. It was one of those frozen patties you see in supermarkets and never buy because they're such low quality. It was thinner than my finger and inedible. My husband left hungry. I ordered the...grilled chicken sandwich which was a wiser option. Mine was okay. Chips were underwhelming. The place has no vibe whatsoever. A bunch of kids wandering about and cartoons playing on the TV to entertain them. They really shouldn't call themselves an Irish pub. There's nothing Irish about them apart from the sign. Not worth it.More

Went for the happy hour, cocktails were average. Food did not appeal based on the menu and what other received.

Reportedly the highest altitude Irish pub in the world (although some would disqualify due to lack of draft Guinness). Nice little pub and very friendly atmosphere for a late night drink.

An "Irish" pub the world over means three things- Guinness, the craic and some semblance of nostalgia to the homeland. Well McElroy's pub has none of the above. Although Guinness is on the menu- it isn't available even in cans - unkie Paddy's bar in...Cusco which explains the non-availability of draught guinness, and at least has cans. There was no atmosphere, and other than green, white and amber light shades no echoes to the home country. The food was distinctively average and the service slooow.More

Came in and ordered a hamburger... An hour and a half later, I left the building without the hamburger. Absolutely ridiculous waiting time... One of the cooks came out with her mouth full (which means she was eating instead of cooking) after I told them...I was leaving. Other tables were having the same problem, and their answer was "we have many orders"... But none were being fulfilled. I would advise everyone to avoid this place, unless you have a lot of time to kill...More

Food was poor and took forever to arrive.. Oh, and it was really too salty! The veg came straight out of a tin. Coca tea was okay but it doesn’t take 25m to make a cup of tea!

Initially intended to stay for dinner, but felt cold inside and outside door constantly left open by guests. Drank our wine and headed out for somewhere we didn’t have to sit down for dinner wearing a coat.

Came here with some friends and we had the best time. Everyone was helpful and easy going. The drinks were reasonable and the music was great. Was hoping to hear an Irish accident but that was probably pushing it. Did leave a little woozy after...so many drinks which were affordable and strong. Best night out for a while. Wheelchair friendly.More

It is easy to find English speakers among the clients. We were entertained by a pool game going on; we cheered and booed some of the shots. One downside: no brews on tap; all beers were in bottles. Bar food was ok and filling. Convenient...location right off the square.More
