    Food was very well presented but underwhelming, regarding flavour, seasoning and temperature. Attention to detail is very important, there was a hair on my vegetables. I also booked this because it was a birthday celebration but we received a happy anniversary dessert. I would recommend it to a friend as we have very high expectations of restaurant dining, and I'm sure the average person would enjoy this restaurant.

    Overall very disappointing dining experience with zero ambience and service levels very poor for a so called 5-star hotel. Food was good however not value for money - ordered 2015 wine off menu and waiter arrived out with 2017 version- when I pointed out to him he said it was due to supply issues with no real apology. Temperature was very cold in dining room and bar so we did not stay for after drinks - the open plan dining area looks like a big standard cafe or breakfast room in a 3 star hotel - will not be recommending to friends.

    The g Hotel – Gigi’s RestaurantResponded on 28 December 2022Dear TonyR, Thank you for joining us at The g Hotel recently. I regret that we have missed the mark on some of the finer points to your visit. I will be the first to admit to some training gaps which are the result of the industry moving at a pace with which we are only keeping up with. I assure you, we will be working tirelessly in the coming weeks and months to have the majority of our team undertake such training as WSET Lever 1 & 2 as well as focusing on the basics of service and Hospitality to get back in front of the guest experience. We look forward to welcoming you to witness all such improvements. Best regards, Martin Howley Hotel Manager

    If you are on a dinner inclusive package , then be careful a number of dishes have additional supplements which are not visible on the menu. I really think management should address this. We were charged an additional €27, €7 on a starter and €10 each on our main courses. The food is ‘fine dining’, I would feel overpriced for what is delivered. Wines also expensive, from €40 per bottle. Service was good, restaurant lacked ambience and it was too bright, they should dim the lights and turn down the background music.

    Booked for my birthday. Asked for a purple couch. Didn’t get the couch or a happy birthday. The new menu isn’t a good as the previous. The starters were dreadful. The main courses were nice. Had to wait over 1 hour in between starter and main. Also long waits for almost everything, including over 30 mins for a cocktail. The bread at the beginning of the meal was stale. Not up to standard. I used to love this restaurant but after last night I will not be returning.

    We had a lovely evening. We chose from A La Carte menu and set menu. Food was delicious, we had argentian red wine which was really lovely and our server was so attentive and professional with a hint of a cheeky grin. overall would highly recommend and the only change i would make is for table of three to have chair for third so we all have a bit of space esp those with sons who still cant keep elbows in!! Thank you

    Being coeliac and dairy free with lots of other allergies and intolerances, I booked ahead for our son's graduation dinner. I sent my long list of don'ts and was told they would cater for me. As soon as we arrived for pre-dinner drinks I was assured all the staff knew of my list and not to worry. It was such an exceptional experience , the staff were amazing, the food was delicious and I can't wait to go back. Thank you all.

    The service and food were excellent. If you have food allergies, the staff are very helpful and informative as to which items on the menu are safe to choose. However, in particular to nut allergies, the options on menu are greatly reduced.

    Dessert was disappointing. I had chocolate with martini and cherry...This was a let down due to lack of flavour...Loved the Killary mussels but don't think hot on cold go to well together, ie the warm bisque sauce on cold

    Great service, however we were seated at a table with split in the seat of the booth. Hake as bland but steak was superb, however sides were poor, a chopped bowl of carrots, parsnips and turnip, much like mother used to make. desert slight in taste and size.

    For a 5 star hotel with only one vegan option on the menu it should have been a really good one, but no starter no dessert and a very bland and underwhelming vegan main, it all felt like an afterthought. We were expecting more considering these options are part of the main menu. The vegan breakfast was ok seemed reheated (hard hash brown and sausages) no plant milks or plant butters available. We wouldn’t be in a hurry back.

    A pleasant stay. Didn't feel 5 star but nice surroundings. Food OK, breakfast was dissapointing, very standard I've had better at 4 star places. Room was deluxe lake view which was very nice. A nice stay , don't think I'd go back for the price you'd get better elsewhere.

    Sea trout starter was one of the weirdest things I have ever eaten. Dishes were in general poorly conceived and not executed to a very high standard. Service was very good though.
