                                          Hard to beat The Gables for service and ambience - friendly and fun. I recoomend the tuna salad Nicoise .

                                          We had been looking forward to going to the Gables,very good experience on arrival ,staff very nice and helpful. ambience very good with a good buzz,drinks excellent and wine was lovely indeed the wine list was very good. they are the good points,,now to the bad points. The food was very disappointing, I had chicken wings for starter which I found to be overcooked and tasteless and not very spicy.My main course fish and chips also very disappointing, the fish was obviously frozen and tasteless,the chips were ok tough. In short nice place ,great atmosphere, excellent drinks,food below par. I will return for drinks and a burger which I believe is good....

                                          Overall the meal and service were good. A bit slow on service, however and we'd to ask for water three times.

                                          Food was very good and plenty of choice on the menu , our waitress was very pleasant but when she finished her work that night service dropped as the staff do not make eye contact with customers or check tables to see if anything else is needed , the conservatory is very well presented but the heaters can be too hot , then it gets cold , however overall we had a very pleasant evening and will definitely return but suggest seating inside depending on weather , a few small tweaks and The Gables would score very well , everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves like we did.

                                          I thought the terrace was prettily decorated, bright & spacious but a little chilly. The service was a little haphazard but I think it is because our waiting staff were new so not a big deal. The food was good but my fish & chips was not as hot as I would have liked. Overall we had a nice evening but I was a little underwhelmed having heard great things about the new Gables.

                                          This is the second time in the last few weeks I have met friends here for lunch. Fabulous venue, friendly but not intrusive service, excellent food at a reasonable price. Beautiful venue. A little noisy inside but out but perfect in the outdoor covered in seating area. Heaters and blankets provided however not needed the area is well heated by the sun but

                                          Was not aware at time of booking that it was in conservatory - I would have liked to have had an option to choose indoors. Food was average. Not rushing back.

                                          Had brunch here and really enjoyed the experience overall. The food was great, staff very welcoming and friendly. Seating comfortable and well laid out. The only criticism I have is that the background music was a little too loud, especially for day time and catch up chats. Otherwise really enjoyed our meal. Thanks!

                                          Unfortunately my husbands meal - monkfish curry was very disappointing ! He did not eat it - or very little of it ! My tuna salad Nicoise was delicious ! My gambas very disappointing . Our lovely waiter did not charge us for the curry and insisted we didn’t pay for that dish ! We had a lovely bottle of Gavi . The decor and ambience of The Gables is fabulous but the food last night didn’t match

                                          We went for dinner the atmosphere and service was excellent, however the food is average, very high priced and small portions for what you pay. I know it's fine dinning, but I wouldn't say the food tasted that different compared to any other restaurant. If your hungry I wouldn't reccomend it. If you want a nice atmosphere, and want to get some drinks/dessert and talk, than yes it's lovely. The outdoor seating is beautiful.

                                          On my booking I asked to be seated inside the restaurant, not in the conservatory. When we arrived we were put in the conservatory, I was assured it was warm there but it was actually cold at times . We ordered one fry without eggs, it arrived with eggs. They removed the eggs and asked would we like chips instead, we said yes but the chips never arrived! Service overall was lacking but the food was good.

                                          A fantastic evening.We all thought the food was delicious. Michael was very professional finding us the table we wanted .We were there a couple of months back and we were very disappointed .There was a huge improvement on Friday night . A good value house wine would be a bonus! Regards, Cora Lawler

                                          Lunch was very nice. Ambience very nice and also the staff. Small glass of wine on the high side of 10 euro but nice experience. Like the new decor.

                                          Cocktails, wine list is decent enough. Good variety on the new menu. Service was great. It’s a great buzzy neighbourhood joint.

                                          The Gables made our night special. From the moment we sat down the experience was thoroughly enjoyable. The drinks by the Bartender (Sean) were fantastic, we simply mentioned our preferred tastes to our experienced and knowledgeable waitress and we were treated to some amazing original cocktails. The service throughout the night was attentive friendly and thoughtful with class and experience. The restaurant was managed expertly. The floor staff were all extremely friendly and made you feel like the only table in the room. The food was extremely tasty, we both had arancini to start and mussels with gambas for main course. Balanced, flavourful and tasty, delivered in time. Would highly recommend bith dishes if you're thinking of dropping in. The flow of the evening was fantastic a testament to the staff in front of house, behind the bar and in kitchen, would absolutely recommend!!

                                          We had to wait a full hour for our food to arrive. With a three year old and a seven month old baby we were lucky to get through the wait without difficulty. The waiting staff made no attempt to explain the delay and we had to request some bread after three quarters of an hour.
