    Never again!! I don’t know what is wrong with this branch but this is yet another bad experience in this location. We were here over the Christmas period and it was a disaster, gave it another shot today. The place was empty and still had a poor experience, we will not be back. Two of us booked for lunch today and both took a liking to the Reuben sandwich with chips, however it should have been called a sauerkraut sandwich as there was little to no pastrami on it and absolutely no vintage cheddar that we could see, if I can attach a picture I will. This was an issue with both sandwiches. And at €15.75 each, what a disappointment. Really frustrating. Place was empty as we have a 12.15pm reservation so there was no issue re: a huge customer rush or any other reason for the lack of main ingredients being provided in the sandwich. if the kitchen didn’t have enough pastrami they should have informed us and we would have ordered something different. I will not be recommending this branch to family and friends, avoid!!

    For a lunch or dinner with children, this is great! The play area is entertaining for 1-8 year olds and I would say especially younger children will have fun here. The food was lovely and they offer different kind of meals!

    The food was cold and didn't come all together. Two people were left waiting, while others had their food a good while.

    It’s an amazing family restaurant! I wish there will be more restaurants like this, with playroom for kids. My favorite restaurant at present!

Not the first time, anyways the place is soulless no atmosphere very little customers, food is mediocre at best, staff don’t really wants be there!!! I could go on but €150 for 5 people seems very excessive, ahhhh E&C not good guys

    We go to this E&C often. Yesterday it was extremely busy. So busy staffing was an issue. Our waiter was very pleasant but kept apologizing for all the delays. Apologies received for children’s meals not arriving with adult starters, we got extra glasses ourselves, we got extra napkins ourselves, we walked up to the till to request bill ourselves etc. hopefully the staffing level will be rectified for our next visit.
