    Took my husband out for dinner for his birthday with our kids. He loves the beer there and it’s his go to for a night out in town. Food was very good, pizza, burger, dirty chicken burger and steak ordered. All really tasty. Desert came with a candle on it for his birthday with the wait staff singing happy birthday. Great touch. Made his night. Thanks for a lovely evening.

    Starter was lovely - Nachos Main - Alfredo Funghi was bland, borderline cold and just not enjoyable. Dessert - Toblerone Cheesecake … this was not Toblerone cheesecake to start it was just a chocolate mousse with hazelnuts. The sauce drizzled ruined the dish as there was a large volume of strawberry sauce that was incredibly overpowering. The chocolate drizzle had a burnt taste to it. The crust of the cheesecake was made with oats and was not a good choice. The cheesecake itself was a disappointment as it was not a good reflection of what we ordered. Drinks were great and coffee was great. Service was excellent.

    Overall good experience; wings were fabulous and pasta was lovely however pizza was barely warm and cold by the time it was finished. We did take our time eating the starter so the mains were probably made too early and that is why they went cold. We will still be back. Lovely espresso to finish

    Service was terrible, food tasted nice when arrived however it took so lol g to come we were last hungry. We received 1 starter and the other 2 came about 15 minutes later then a massive wait for the mains. We got a complimentary drink for the inconvenience however the drink was flat and also they tried to include on the bill. Definitely would not go back and actually was close to salon g our before the mains arrived.

    We had dinner at the restaurant in the evening of January 1st. The place obviously had more people seated that they could handle. This is the first time in my life that I waited 1 hour and 45 minutes to have an order for 3 people ready. The waitress apologised a couple of times but we were not compensated in any way. According to the manger there was a problem in the kitchen but reading the reviews this was not the first night that such things happen. Needless to say the people who came around the same time with us also waited so much. As for the food the sirloin steak was burnt and the pasta was okayish.

    Unfortunate situation at this restaurant tonight. Granted, it is New Year’s Day, but the restaurant took a reservation so we assumed they could handle our table. The kitchen seemed backed up early, and it’s possible they did not have enough people working, but all of this could have been smoothed over with better service. We were seated on time for our reservation, but were not greeted at the table, given water or even eye contact for almost 30 minutes. The menu was a limited holiday menu, 2 courses for €25, which was not mentioned when we booked. Once we placed our order, it was nearly 90 minutes before we were served. For pasta. And it was cold. The servers seemed embarrassed, and as we looked around, it was clear all of the other tables were frustrated or having bad experiences, too. It was our first experience here, and it unfortunately was not good. There isn’t anything I could recommend. I literally could have gone to the grocery, bought all of the ingredients, walked home and made it myself in half the time it took to get dinner tonight. And it would have been better.

    Food was perfect but service was a little all over place. I booked for 2 adults and 2 children and they served me a service charge of €8 euro. They said I booked with a group which I didn't. My sister booked for 6 on same day and she was charged a service charge of €10. We booked as to separate bookings not for us altogether and we were sitting separately from each other

    Disappointed since the begging when I was told that the kitchen had closed already. The person who talked to us at the entrance said I should know that the restaurant closes at 10pm, I told him that there was a table available for 10pm in their website “which shouldn’t be there if their kitchen closes at 10pm, right?”. Anyway, overall they treated my and my family as if we were doing a favor to them, plus: the bill was dropped at our table before we had finished eating. I would never recommend this place for someone else. Thanks anyway for seating us and offering a bit of your precious time.

    Staff were quite rude. Waitress snapped menu from my hand when collecting them. Our main course came before our starters. Where we were sitting was quite drafty and cold. When paying we were told that we could not be given the price for 2 2-course menus and 1 3-course as we shared the dessert and they had to price it separately.

    We were v disappointed. We arrived just before 6 and wanted to order from the children's menu. Front of house waiter was very rude about it. Waitress was lovely but she brought pint of sprite for my 6 year old and was very reluctant to change it. I ordered gf pizza and the base was a frozen shop bought base. I think for the price of the pizza this was not acceptable. Overall a poor experience and will not be going back

    This was a very busy evening in the restaurant. We were waiting a while for someone to come and seat us. We ordered and got our dinner in good time. Everybody's food was good. After dinner we were waiting a while to see if anyone would offer us dessert menus. We eventually had to ask for them. The staff were friendly but could have been more attentive. They didn't seem to be assigned specific tables to look after.

    I usually really enjoy going to Luigis but this visit was different. 1) The front door is stiff. When I tried entering it wouldnt budge, the same happened to the woman behind me and we both assumed the place had closed. The staff at the front desk watched us struggle with the door and failed to do anything, it wasn’t until a man came along and opened the door that we were able to enter. 2) The music was so loud that I couldnt have a proper conversation with my family. It was later lowered after I requested it to be. 3) I ordered nachos, they were enjoyable but the chips on the edge of the bowl were burnt. Everybody else enjoyed their starters. 4) The pizzas were basic. The ingredients on my pizza (oh no pineapple) were not spread out on the pizza and all clumped together. 5) The pasta my mother ordered had huge cloves of RAW garlic in it, this was really strange to see. 6) It was hard to get the attention of the staff.. they were either all stood chatting at the front desk or at the bar. Would I go again? Probably but the standards need to be brought up to where they once were.

    Very disappointed that 3 of their main dishes weren’t available on the menu. This included their specialities dishes of chicken fajitas, steak and lasagne. We were very disappointed when the reason I booked for Christmas Eve with my family was for their fajitas. Won’t be in a hurry back I’m afraid.

    Food was average.. veggie burger was falling apart and they don't toast the bun!! What??! Also, its one of these places that makes you order chips for €5 extra to go with your burger. It takes groups of young folk so it gets loud. Waiting staff is fabulous.

    We visited to celebrate my friend's engagement. This was mentioned on my booking form but we didn't feel as if we were celebrating a special occasion as it wasn't mentioned by staff nor were we sat at a nice table. We were sat in a tightly packed area where tables were very close together making it hard to enter the inside seat so we had to move our table to one sife to get in and out of our seat. Our drinks order was wrong but service was lacking so we didn't ask to have it rectified. Our empty food plates remained on the table for over 20 minutes after we finished eating and we had to flag down a member of staff to get some water for our table and for some milk to accompany the tea we had ordered. After our meal, we tried to approach staff at the waiting desk for our bill as no one approached our table and we were directed to sit back down. We were waiting around 15 minutes to pay and left promptly after that. Food was lovely but we were let down by poor service.
