    Very easy booking system. Staff very friendly. Service was attentive. Nice menu. Food was good quality and well presented. Only minor things for me were that the coffee wasn't great (too weak and too hot for me, and the prosecco was charged €2 more than it the price printed on the menu). Would definitely visit again.

    Food was piping hot which was a positive. Both starters were bland. My husbands main was delicious but my beef was very meh. Service was slow and workers seemed overworked and very busy. All in all wouldn't recommend.

    I ate in Coda restaurant with two friends before a concert in the 3arena. None of us like yhe selection of starters, so opted for mains and dessert. I had slow cooked beef and it was delicious. I want to single out the service which was excellent and attentive, although they were full. I especially want to highlight their integrity and honesty as I had overpaid the bill and tip by €50 (I paid cash) and hadn't noticed. Although I had said the cash I had given had paid the bill and included a tip, they came back to me to say did I really mean that much? When I counted the money, I realised the extra €50. 10 out of 10.

    Went to Coda Restaurant before concert at 3Arena. Service was excellent and very well organised considering how busy it was. Food was good too, only one small complaint, the portion size of the tortelloni was very small. However overall a very enjoyable experience.

    Loved the Gibson in general and have stayed here twice for concerts in as many weeks. But I have one complaint about the breakfast. Your sausages are the blandest and most untasteful I have ever eaten. My ten year old, who loves sausages, said that they had gone off. I tasted them and came to the conclusion that they had not gone off but were just the cheapest sausages that were probably available. No taste, no texture, no flavor.....cardboard tasting. Hopefully, you will rectify this soon.

    We booked a table for three at the codi eatery Food was perfect and service was perfect the only real issue I had was the size of the table for three of it was a table for two with third chair pushed in for our son when asked could we slide another table across for more room we were told no all the tables were booked it was very awkward trying to eat as the table was so small and trying to avoid knocking things down off the the table i was disappointed with this as it was Mother’s Day and I booked the table a week in advance and drove the whole up from laois to be packed in to a tiny table

    Most of the staff were exceptional, the hotel was very clean. Food was OK bit cold in parts. Very quick service. Breakfast was ten out of ten. Room was chilly dispite turning the heating to max. Shower was OK ran a bit cool at times and there was no conditioner in the dispenser. Bed and pillows were very comfortable and we slept well.

    The meal was very nice but prices were very high,eg. 45 euro for two burgers! Service and staff were excellent. Restaurant itself was very clean,but dark and cold., because of that,as soon as we finished our meals, we didn't really want to stick around ,as it was quite chilly there.

    The food was lovely, our waitress was so friendly. We had our plates finished but we had a bowl of chips untouched. We weren’t finished with them so when another man came-didn’t even say hello. He just said are you finished? We said yes but not with the chips. He said he has to take everything away as we were there for an hour already. We’ve been told we have the table for 90 minutes at the beginning so we were so confused. We stayed the night in the hotel as we always stay there but this time the dinner experience was disappointing.

    Valentines meal. Food was lovely, we were left for 20 minutes before given menus and had to remind the staff that or order had to be taken. When asking for a refill of water and some wine we had to again remind the staff that we had asked for it. Wouldn’t come again. Nice food, atrocious service especially for the price of the valentines menu (you had to get the full course meal which wasnt mentioned anywhere when making the booking)

    My burger was very dry and cold, I sent back the chips because they were hard , my burger was finished before I received the new portion of chips which again was too hard to eat so overall our experience was really bad and service was all over the place so I will not be returning

    I was a bit disappointed. The service was awkward. They'd all be on top of you or you'd be looking for them. They all seemed nervous. Different people all the time and no chance of building rapport. Food was nice. It was a pity there was no chocolate moouse for dessert as we both would have had it. The other options didn't appeal. Cutlery marked. Wanted us out in 90 minutes which at the prices seemed unfair. Eventually allowed us 2 hours which we appreciated.
