    We had a reservation. On arrival we were left waiting in door way for 5-6 minutes before anyone came to attend us. Had my very elderly mother with me she leaned on the pulpit. Staff very pleasant, food lovely. Had to ask for missing avocado on plate as ordered. One of us asked for a fried egg in addition to order. Only after leaving restaurant did I realise the charge gor a fried egg was 2.50€ which is rather expensive. Otherwise thoroughly enjoyed the food as we are locals and frequent the restaurant .

    I had a pleasant experience at Gourmet Food. The staff were very friendly and accommodating! The food was spectacular and brought out very quick to a high standard I wanted to shoutout a certain staff member named Brid who made us feel very welcomed and attended to us perfectly! I will definitely be returning!

    This place has declined soooo much since being there last in spring 2019. Maybe Covid? Sandwhiches were not good. Wrap was terrible. Filled 3/4 with cold garlic hummus that tasted of nothing else. Waiter gave bad info when asked one question. Had res. Seated then had to ask for someone to serve us after 15 mins. Waited for 3 sandwhiches a wrap and kids store bought pancakes for 55 minutes. Ambience was terrible too. Light jazz music and stag never checked in on us once.

    Service was great and staff were lovely and friendly. Locals working so you were able to ask about the area and stuff. I wanted to pay by 'tap' but for some reason it did not work? Maybe the machine was not working properly. Luckily I had cash to pay. Something very minor, but I would of loved ice in the jug of water. I do realise I did not ask but it is the small things like that, that add to the ambience. Will be back again!

    I have been to GFP so was excited to try the one in salthill. The service was extremely slow. We got our drinks once our meal was half way through, we had to look for them and go up to staff to order dessert. Overall the food was ok.

    Hi First off let me say we really enjoy coming here as a family and we always love the food however our last visit was not great. The stag and greeting were excellent as was our server however the food was not up to its usual standard. My husband ordered the chicken burger ( one of his favourites ) and I ordered your famous chicken sandwich with fries. My kids has pasta. The chicken burger was dry and the chicken sandwich when I opened it had no stuffing practically no garlic aioli and two very small pieces of chicken certainly not what I would consider good value for money. I asked our server and she brought me out some stuffing and garlic but no chicken !! So I was able to add to it. The management were good about it and removed our drinks from the bill. 7 up Coke Zero and Kulana for the kids. I left feeling disappointed and to be honest hungry. Kind regards Mary Whelan

    Gourmet Food Parlour - SalthillResponded on 12 May 2022Good afternoon Mary, We're very sorry to hear you were left feeling disappointed following your recent visit to GFP Salthill.

    I booked & specified that both myself & my daughter were coeliacs. They had no options for her only roast chicken & chips or curry. She 6 so curry isn’t an option. She had the roast chicken- which was sliced chicken for sandwiches!!! Really?? One toilet open downstairs- where there was a constant Q, making people rush & feel uncomfortable. Staff were lovely but won’t be returning!
