    Our group of 4 had an extremely enjoyable lunch at Gourmet Food Parlour yesterday. I requested a quiet table and we certainly got that sat upstairs which was just perfect. The quality of service, friendliness of the staff along with superb food was absolutely wonderful, the best food out we’ve experienced in a long while. Highly recommended !

    The early bird menu was excellent value for money and the portions were very generous. The food was very tasty and our party of two were more than happy with our starters of calamari & pasta, main courses of burger & pasta. The staff very attentive and friendly. This chic restaurant is ideally located close to the centre of Salthill and is highly recommended.

    Air conditioning in restaurant not working so awfully hot. Service so slow, almost an hour from when we arrived before we got food and had to walk around the restaurant for 10 mins trying to find staff to bring us some water. A number of menu items unavailable. Food only OK, have had much better food and service on a previous occasions so hopefully this experience was a one off.

    Gourmet Food Parlour - SalthillResponded on 16 August 2022Good afternoon Sinead, We're shocked to hear of the experience you had at GFP Salthill recently. This is not at all what we consider to be our usually high level of customer service, so thank you for flagging this with us. We can assure you we will bring this to the attention of Salthill management to ensure that this was in fact a once off. Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and we do hope to see you soon despite these issues. Team GFP

    I had the Woodland Breakfast, which is vegetarian - which I am not - and it was delicious!! I'm not a fan of mushrooms generally but whatever way they cook them in the Gourmet Food Parlour, they are divine!! The food is consistently good, the decor is fab and the service is always friendly and efficient.

    Food really nice, the chips are tasty. Everyone's favourite is the chicken burger with chips - although I had the fish which was fine. They have milk alternatives for lactose intolerant people. Service is pretty good and quite quick. Should perhaps consider having some more deserts like ice cream or tiramisu - just a suggestion. I find the current deserts a bit heavy after a meal.

    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 .

    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.
