    As a long term fan of Bresson, I have to say that we had a wonderful dining experience again last evening when we shared the Bresson ambience with a number of guests from London who we introduced to Bresson for their first time. Well done you guys, you all did it again. Keep smiling, Norman Kilroy

    Fish overcooked, potatoes undercooked, but staff were absolutely lovely. Felt was overpriced at 69 for 3 courses or 40 for a main.

    Excellent food and service, lovely menu and varied wine list with several price levels. Only gripe is having to ask for the automatic service charge for all table sizes of 12.5% to be removed so we could tip the staff directly instead. Otherwise a lovely evening.

    Overpriced for the food we received. No veg. We had to pay extra for chips even though the 3 course meal was €69.99. Whether you are a vegetarian or a meat eater - you pay the same (for cheese and carrots) ! The air conditioning was on throughout and it was very cold. We were frozen by the end of the meal. I'm just disappointed.

    The food was fine. My steak was underdone and not medium as requested but overall is was tasty. There was some maintenance going on in the background using a hammer drill. Staff were friendly but not overfriendly.

    The menu was a set menu at 70 per head which we were not advised of prior to booking. We wouldnt usually get either starter and desert so not impressed that the decision is taken away for you and automatically your charged 70eur. The food was beautiful but it would be nice to have a choice.

    We were on time when we arrived and were rushed to the table. We were not offered an aperitif. We ordered the wine immediately and sparkling water. Tap water appeared promptly and we then ordered our food. By the time the amuse bouche came we still had no wine so we decided to wait. They then arrived with the completely wrong wine. As we were waiting for it our starter arrived and they went to clear away the uneaten amuse bouche. We felt very rushed. Don’t like the set menu where you have to have a dessert

    Mother's Day menu only - no á la carte - which was fine for us on the occasion but I'd have preferred the option to not have a 3 course meal. We were well looked after most of the early evening .......... the team was a little less attentive as the second sitting was arriving and the place got busier. Design and Presentation of plated food was of a high standard - not convinced the flavours were as impactful or complex as promised by the menu

    We love Bresson. The food is always beautiful and the ambience excellent. It’s the kind of place that people get a bit fancied up. The best part of the place is the front of house staff. We had an amazing waitress (didn’t get her name!) who doted on our little boy and was so helpful with accommodating his needs. It really made the meal out extra special

    The restaurant is comfortable and the table presentation elegant. Service was at times poor...several times had to ask for condiments and water. Food was very good. Steak main was delicious. Wine selection excellent but very expensive. Overall, yes would come again, but at over €400 for four people for dinner this represents poor value for money given the service and noise levels....

    Dated food, tasty but very overpriced. 12.5%service charge added to every bill. Service is lacking. Waiters kept dropping dishes at pass. Our waitress was lacking in very basic serving skills and we had to ask for everything and wait ages for them to revert. Service definitely needs improvement… especially if we are made pay for a mandatory service charge. Restaurant decor is lovely and nice feel to it. Wine list is good and sommelier knew his stuff- recommended a very good (mid range) bottle to us and it was lovely. Won’t be back unfortunately.

    Not the same experience without Noel working. Two young girls working chatted on their phones instead of clearing up plates or topping up drinks. Noel , our regular waiter makes the experience that much more outstanding
