Had a fab lunch with my twin babies and mother here this week, impeccable service and very fresh tasty food. Lovely buzz in the restaurant making you feel very relaxed and able to chat freely.

Excellent food, service not great. Got served 5 of our 6 meals, waited 10 minutes for the last person to get theirs and only after we reminded them. Then no one came back to the table after that so had to get up and go to the counter to get the tea that we had ordered as part of our meal.
Aside from the service, everything else was great.

We have been to Gourmet Food Parlour several times and have always had a great experience however yesterday was a disappointment.
We had a vegan in our party who was very disappointed with the changes to the vegan breakfast which is now mainly beans on toast with mushroom and tomoato, several other items which had been on it, have been removed including sweet potato & guacamole but the price has stayed the same . It represents very bad value for money.
The kickstart breakfast (which I have had before) is supposed to contain sweet potato rosti but it came with a tasteless hash brown which did not contain any sweet potato. The bacon served with this was rubbery and overall I didn't enjoy it and didn't eat much other than the eggs which were good. When the server came to remove the plates, he did not comment or ask when he saw how much of my plate was returning to the kitchen and when I pointed out that there was no sweet potato as described, he just shrugged.
In addition there was a slightly longer than usual or normal wait until the food arrived and just in general, while the service was reasonably good, it wasn't great as we have experienced in the past.
Lastly, one thing that really annoyed one of our party was the extra 50cent which is charged for a decaf coffee - we have never seen this before anywhere else and it seems a bit much. Paying €3.20 for a decaf coffee - is there any need for this?

Really enjoyed the visit, just one thing to note. Once we were served, it was extremely hard to get anyone's attention for more service, which became very distracting. Even when we did eventually get noticed, the order was forgotten about and it was a case of trying to get someone's attention again! The food was good, the surroundings were lovely and the staff friendly. I will be back.
