    Staff as always were so good. My husband got the chicken burger which I’d hot the last time and he found it like me extremely salty! My quesadilla was delicious

    It’s been a while since I ate there but it was empty but could have been the night itself due to 6 nations etc. If tapas are your thing, lots of choice but if not, it’s a very limited menu. Had the steak and it was lovely with a nice Malbec. Would like more main course in the menu

    Very disappointing experience in GFP Swords. We both ordered the kickstart breakfast; the rocket was soggy and wilted and the eggs and bacon were stone cold. I got three pieces of toast and my partner only got two. Will not be returning

    Unfortunately I got the “kale hash” special, basically eggs Benedict but the eggs are on a “hash” with some kale in the sauce. One of my eggs was hilariously undercooked, it was obvious from the moment it landed on the table. I am fairly shocked someone would serve it as it was obvious before cutting into it. I left it until the end just in case, cut it open and completely uncooked egg white spilled out (see through yellowish egg whites, not slightly cooked egg whites). Unfortunately we weren’t approached while eating to be asked if it was ok, so I informed the staff when they came to collect the plate. Was told they’d let the kitchen know. I heard nothing else and paid the €15 for it. I would also add there were 3 pieces of kale, 2 eggs (1 inedible) on top of dry cubed crispy potatoes with a small amount of hollandaise. For the price it was very disappointing, and given I couldn’t eat half of it I expected them to at least offer a free pastry or my coffee for free, some sort of acknowledgment. Have eaten here on multiple occasions without real issue, but I was just really disappointed that someone would serve an egg that was truly obviously not cooked, and then the response is to just make me pay for it. I wasn’t expecting to get the whole dish for free, but a small gesture of apology would make a big difference. Oh well.

    We had a very disappointing experience. I have three children and we had booked in. We were seated at a cramped table and left waiting a very long time to order. I asked for colours to keep the children entertained and after 3 requests I went up to the bar to be told they have none. This was fine but I could have been told that the first time. When we finally got to order and the food finally arrived the children's food was inedible. There was a hair across the top of my 3 year olds burger. This was replaced but the other Burger's were still like rubber, dripping in mayonnaise and the bread had onions baked into it that my children wouldn't eat. Luckily my curry was nice so we all shared that. I felt we were ignored and dismissed because we had children with us. We did get an apology for the hair on the burger and the meal was replaced but the whole experience was awful. We left hungry and I won't be returning.

    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.

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.

    Cosy booth great for privacy but it can mean you are easily missed when trying to get attention of staff. Always a lovely experience though, food excellent, speedy service and excellent value

    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.
