I had the same waiter on both occasions. I found the service to be extremely slow and an unattentive waiter. Sunday specifically, we had a small order and it took 50-55 mins to arrive and when it arrived it was wrong. I expected this however as the waiter was rude and rushed upon taking our order and was not listening to what I was asking for. I asked another girl to correct it and she did so promptly. When the bill came however we were then charged for an extra side which was incorrect as it was part Of the original order. I asked a girl to correct the bill. The man who was our waiter then approached our table (having not interacted with our table at all from the time he took our order to check if everything was ok). Instead of just apologising he was argumentative in his approach and once again was not listening to what we were trying to explain. We were going to stay for coffee however as we were not offered any or checked in on we decided to leave it and go next door to get our coffee. Quite disappointing as a regular customer to have this Experience twice in 2 days. The food was fine once it arrived the issue was the service or lack thereof.

Only thing a bit off was the live music, great idea and an accomplished musician/singer but having a guy in with a guitar doing rock and pop covers was bit of an odd choice. Was like being trapped in a room with a Grafton Street busker complete with overpowered amp, conversation was basically impossible until he'd finished up.

However, our order was completely messed up from the beginning. The burger was bland and dry. The manager was very nice and accommodating and replaced our food, however overall we were not impressed with the food at all still. I cannot fault the staff though, and even though the waiter got our order wrong, he was still so friendly. Unfortunately, we would not return to the ChurchTown location though as it was not worth the time or money in our opinion. Perhaps it would be nice for some cocktails though

Wings were reheated and over cooked and swamped with sauce - chicken tortilla was v poor covered in melted cheese. The salad we ordered was v poor tasted of nothing and the chicken on it was cold and v hard They had run out of caeser salad and sauvignon blanc ! - we found that hard to believe - the mains arrived before the starter plates were cleared We have eaten in this restaurant many times but we would not go back again - the overall experience left us disgruntled !

We are sorry to hear that it didn't hit the mark for you. We can assure you that we make our guacamole ourselves and all of our sauces are made by our prep chef. We hope to have you back soon to earn those extra 2 stars. Kind Regards, E&C Team

The restaurant was only half full but yet we waited 20mins before I could get the attention of a waiter. Then we had to ask 4 different people for a 2nd drink. Wings were good and the salmon was fine but the rest of the food was terrible. Will not return.

On this occasion however we were disappointed with the food, in particular the house salad, avocado. Basically what we received was a plate full of mixed leaves, a few half cherry tomatoes and a small portion of avocado. My husband asked for chicken to be added to his salad, which comprised a few pieces of chicken which to be fair were tasty but the portion was ludicrously small, essentially this was more of a starter salad. Staff were wonderful, warm and welcoming. Very friendly and attentive. Just a shame for the disappointing food.

My husband had the full Irish breakfast which was €15.95, without tea or coffee. I felt this was exorbitant. I had the eggs Florentine which I felt was also quite pricey for what I got. We asked for a pot of tea with our breakfast and had to remind our server 3 times to bring it to us, we eventually got our tea after we had finished eating! Would not be rushing back.

We are sad to hear it wasn't a great visit and hope you can give us another shot. The full Irish doesn't come with tea or coffee but it does come with an orange juice. As into our prices, I am sure you can understand during this difficult time, prices needed to be increased. We haven't increased our prices in over 5 years and with the increase, we are still absorbing a lot of the cost. Kind Regards, E&C Team
