    I got the full monty burger and so did my son, both were way to heavily seasoned with salt so along with the bacon it was extremely salty to the taste.

    We dis not like the seating for our reserved table. We were put in s seated area with 14 other strangers. The table next to me was only about a 2 foot between us. I asked to move to another table which I was told I could only sit at the bat to have my food. So myself and my husband left. Very inappropriate seating arrangement.

    Highly recommend. Lovely ambience , friendly staff, nice menu, only let down was that our cognac was served in a shot glass and not a brandy glass and port was served in a tumbler and not a port glass. When questioned about the serving glasses we were told the brandy glasses were all broken and that they didn’t have port glasses 🤔.

    Enjoyed our New Years Day lunch overall. However €5 for a cup of frozen chips sold as ‘rustic fries’ was ridiculous. Food was hot, tasty and enjoyable.

    Food is definitely gone over priced. €31 for a dish with 4 prawns, spaghetti and olives. It was served on a small plate that resembled a kids portion. We were a family of 5. 3 of us got our food first and the other 2 received their food about 15 mins later ( wasn't even a steak dish .) Have been going to blue for years now and everytime I say it. Price is extortionate.

    The service was so good the bartender Tom was so so lovely drinks were lovely. €15 euro for prawn tacos with one prawn on each taco and three tacos was the stingiest meal I have had in a long time. The crab claws were over cooked and so so small for the price of €16 as well.

    We had the loveliest lunch yesterday for my sister’s 30th Birthday. Our server was so kind and catered to all of our needs and nothing was ever too much of an ask. He was great craic too! The menu was just perfection with an option for everyone including the vegetarians in our family. I’m still full after the dessert - Ferrero Rocher Sundae was out of this world 😍 the atmosphere got us all in the Christmas spirit and we all agreed that we will definitely be back!!

    We had a fantastic meal in Blue Bar yesterday. The service & food were top notch. We tried their specials and everyone was impressed with their meal. Personally, I had one of the best fish pies I've ever eaten. This along with their decorations/atmosphere been second to none made for a super visit.

    As usual, the best staff, always so friendly and professional. The chicken burger was fabulous, the thai green curry was on the small side. The sundae and bread pudding were excellent. The Christmas decorations were so classy. I look forward to seeing them every year.
