Really enjoyed our lunch in Layla’s. The service is excellent and very unobtrusive, the food was delicious and loved the fact that we were no rushed between courses too. The venue had a really nice ambience too.

We used to come here a lot but after lockdown they changed the menu - removed the nicest meals they had, it has become more expensive as well. And although the restaurant was alsmot empty we had to wait for an hour for our meal which was really unexpected.

I had made a booking about 4 weeks ago to ensure a table for myself and friends and was very disappointed when I received a call 2 days before from the restaurant to cancel my booking in order to facilitate newer bookings. In the end my booking was moved to an earlier time but I felt cancelling a booking made weeks ago to facilitate newer bookings was unfair and not good business.

Responded on 17 October 2020

Dear Anonymous, I'm sorry that we had to call you to move the time of your booking. Unfortunately a lot has changed in 4 weeks and we've had to adapt as well as we can. Apologies if moving the timing of your booking caused upset for you and your group. And also I'm sorry to see that you found the rest of your experience less than satisfactory. It's not what we're about and ANY specific feedback you'd like to give on food, service, etc, is very welcome, Sincerely, Adrian (gm@thedevlin.ie)
