    Meat and cheese platter for 2 not worth 30€, very scaled back from previous experiences, disappointing. In fairness though other two tapas plates very nice but at least 3-4 options out of stock. Waiting staff very good.

    I always enjoy GFP. This time we had some issues with the food, but our complaint was handled exceptionally well. We were even thanked for highlighting as it could be then fixed for the rest of the night for other guests. (I also recommend New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc- Opawa for any white wine lovers!)

    Food amazing as always. Lovely atmosphere. The service was a bit slow as they were busy and had to send back hot chocolate twice (no cream and marshmallows). The manager was VERY loud moving tables around behind us for the next group, wasn’t very cognisant of people eating food behind him! BUT I still love the place and will be back as the food and atmosphere are so good.

    Our party of 3 had Sunday lunch - chicken wings, chicken quesadillas and chicken burger all with either rustic or waffle fries. Service was efficient and staff friendly and attentive. Food, as always was very tasty and portions are substantial! We always leave stuffed. Unfortunately no room for dessert!

    Vegan breakfast has disapproved of late .No white pudding anymore and sausages are different ( overcooked and not as nice as before) potatoes where over cooked and tasteless.Beans are no longer part of plate and extra cost. Won't be back anytime soon. Disappointed.

    First visit in a while to Swords and while the food was delicious, the service was very poor. Waited 15 minutes for a glass of water, food order was incorrect when it did arrive but was corrected. Had to wait another 15 minutes at the end of our meal when we ordered coffes and teas. Cannot fauld the stantard of food, but service was very poor, seemed to be a lace of staff.

    Waited ages at the table after being seated for a server without any info on the mains (all specials of the day) to then be asked what we wanted. Waitress was unfamiliar with the menu. As was mostly a tapas menu wasn’t a lot of meal choices. Service was generally very slow around food, drinks and water for the table when asked. Food was good despite limited choice.

    We love the Gourmet Food Parlour but last night they were obviously not very well stocked which is understandable after Christmas. It was very quiet too which was not the restaurant's fault but atmosphere was not as good as usual.

    Disappointed in service. Family of 4 and regular customers. Left alone for 15 minutes after being seated and waitress eventually took order for food and drinks without writing anything down. Meal came with sweet potato fries instead of requested patata bravas. Sent sweet potatoes back but the potatoes never arrived yet we were charged for both. Nobody came near us while we ate meal to see if everything was ok. So disappointed as we were hoping to enjoy the last bit of family time before returning to work and school. Expensive for what we got. Staff need more training. Will be a while before we return.

    We have eaten in gourmet food parlour many many times usually lunch or breakfast . This time it was NYE and we arrived at 5.30 for our dinner. The manager seated us and left us with menus, we all decided on the turkey and ham , when the young waiter came to take order and we said 3 turkey and ham , he apologized and said they were all out and said someone should have told us when we were given the menus. So we were really disappointed.myself and my son then decided on the wings and my husband the steak. When the food arrived the wings were not very warm at all something I had never experienced here before. The sirloin steak which was €37 was dry and tough . I had asked for water from 2 different waiters and had to ask a third time to get it after about 30 mins. Really disappointed with this visit

    Went with my wife for New Years Eve - had the special menu - ordered steak for main course. My steak was ok but on the well done side of medium, my wife was medium rare as she requested but was full of fat and gristle - as she discovered as she ate. I pointed this out to the guy who appeared to be the manager - he took the plates to the kitchen and never came near us again. The bill was for the full amount including the supplement for the steak. The bill was brought by a young server whom I told about the issue I had raised and the fact that there had been no response. He apologised for the situation but could do nothing at that stage. Rather than spoil New Years Eve by making a scene I paid the bill - no tip . I will not be returning!!!

    Having been big fans of GFP Swords, for years, including having them cater our wedding party, this was very disappointing and worrying for the future of the restaurant. The menu was totally changed, limited, and of a very average standard. No better than a carvery in a pub. Gone was the Tapas, the Saturday crowd and the uniqueness of GFP. Never again

    My son who had the kids breakfast found a hair in his scrambled egg, he didn’t want to change the plate as he had cut up his food. I find this very disappointing especially since we have gone to the restaurant a number of times over the year. Hygiene in the preparation area should be reviewed. Won’t be rushing back again unfortunately
