    Loved the cauliflower wings. Tacos could have with a little sauce or guacamole. As were a bit dry. Margarita was good.

    Me and a friend had booked for 7.30. orders taken ok but it was after 9 and food still hadn't arrived and not much engagement by staff. We were 2 drinks in by time we got food. I think if understaffed they shouldn't have maybe taken in so many people and maybe a free bowl of nachos for a table to be snacking on if there is going to be that long of a delay.

    Pinks was a great experience and we eat here fairly regularly. The service in particular was very good. The food was excellent and I really like the menus. It was quiet being so close to Xmas so that made it extra special. Big well done to the staff involved I couldn’t fault it for a family meal out

    Staff seemed overworked. The waitress taking care of my table seemed to be a new hire as she was unsure about portion sizes and customisation options. She was very friendly but perhaps she would benefit from more training as she didn’t process the neighbouring tables order on the system and they were waiting quite awhile. The table could benefit from dividers as it’s always uncomfortable hearing the conversation of the next table over. Ive ate at pinks quite a few times and the food is always excellent, the toilets always clean, the staff always very friendly.

    Nice if you want a cheap and cheerful Mexican experience. Staff were all very young and clearly very inexperienced - they were polite and pleasant at all times but there were multiple errors throughout the ordering and service and payment proved challenging. An extremely large table of nearly 30people beside us made talking and socializing impossible so we made a quick exit after eating. Food was so so - overcooked fish in the tacos but good started and guac.

    Seated quickly by a very friendly host . We ordered drinks first and then food . Food arrived before drinks. Like too quickly! Obviously wasn’t cooked fresh . Ribs were just ok , bit dry and had obviously been sitting cooked for long time . Chips over cooked and sweetcorn rubbery and lacking taste . Again say it was cooked a while and sitting there . Large very flat and wine was awful. Wont be returning I’m afraid

    As we got shown to our table the table and seats were wet and the host didny even bother to dry it up. We waited 25 minutes for someone to take our order but no one came down to us so i had to go ask someone could we order and then they still took another 10 minutes to get a waiter. The waiter was all over the place and didnt even write down half of our food.After a while the waiter brought out 2 of the 6 dishes. Another 15 minutes go by and the rest of our food still isnt here and then 2 men came down and brought us the wrong food. I went up to the front and they told me they wrote down the order wrong and didn’t even start it.Our dinner then came out it was mediocre at best.We wanted to get desert aswel and asked for a menu and then we ordered. We waited another 20 minutes and i had to go up to the front again and they said they forgot to make our deserts so we said thats enough dont bother we payed and just left.Service was terrible they didnt even care about us will never go back absolute disgrace

    Left waiting for a good bit upon arrival even though members of staff passed us and we were the only ones there. No server asked us for the duration of the meal were we OK for everything! Had to get up from table and go ask server for a sauce , eventually arrived but foid almost finished. Had to go to food prep area to ask for water eventually got it but no glasses! After 10 mins had to approach food area again to ask for glasses...was told "walk around the side of the opposite counter and you'll see them!!" The staff seemed really young and very inexperienced. So disappointed!

    None of the staff were bothered to serve, we had to seat ourselves and spent nearly 2 hours in total for the food. Food was great. Had to ask for cutlery because staff found their phones and friends more interesting then work. Would love a delivery option because the actual service was horrendous. By the way this was a table for 2.
    Pinks WaterfordResponded on 11 August 2023
    Hi Keith, Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. Sorry to hear that you weren't happy with the service. Our staff do not use their mobile phones during service. They are using handheld devices to take orders. Those are mobile devices. According to our booking system you had booked a table for 20:00, you were seated at 20:12 and the table became available again at 21:47.This would be within the acceptable guideline time that we would allow an open table for a booking of 2 people.

    The food was absolutely Devine and the staff were lovely and friendly. We just found that we were waiting a long time to be shown to our table and then we were waiting a very long time for the food to come after we had ordered. I was very hungry so maybe my patience was less than usual. But when the food arrived it was delicious, I would definitely go there again!

    Can’t fault to food in there it was delicious. The service was appalling. It was like there wasn’t enough staff on. Our starters came and no one took away the plates after - we ordered drinks and it took ages. The food came and still drinks hadn’t come - we were waiting on strawberry daquries for about 20 mins and we just ended up cancelling them in the end. We left earlier than we even wanted to because it was a was so slow. It was for my birthday, and my friends organised a brownie with a candle, and again it never turned up because we waited so long. Really disappointed as I’ve had great experiences in the past.

    I love the food in pinks. I was there for my bday with a group of 11. Our table was booked for 7 but we didn’t get our food mains until 8:50. This was an hour & a half after our starters. We asked re our mains twice & were told they were short staffed. The restaurant wasn’t as busy as I have seen it before. We were all starving pity.

    We were there as a party of 9 - all family and adults with no kids. There were a few communion parties around us but the noise was not over powering considering the amount of kids that were there. The service was excellent and very responsive. The food was excellent too, especially the guacamole - that was excellent. On a whole we were extremely happy with the food and service. We will definitely be back.
