Classic Irish cuisine from chef Sean Smith in the Kildare countryside.

Sean’s mouth-watering new menu is as always sourced locally with some ingredients even grown on the very grounds of the Cliff at Lyons Estate. Food lovers will enjoy classics such as Roast Rib of Beef, Cherry Valley Duck Breast and Oven Baked Baby Turbot with sides of seasonal vegetables, mini Seafood platters and of course for something a bit sweet, Whiskey & Orange Ice Cream or Chocolate Fondant with Salted Caramel Ice Cream.

The Mill restaurant is the heart of Cliff at Lyons, with huge double-height ceilings, warm open fire and windows that open up to a terrace beside the mill race and waterfall. Here, you will find a relaxed style of dining where it is easy to enjoy a lunch or dinner with friends or family. The illuminated waterfall provides a unique back drop to this airy and spacious room.

                                                  Excellent fish dishes. Young staff need more training in PR. Wine by the glass (Not a glass) needs units reviewing.

                                                  Honestly, unfortunately one of the worst restaurant experiences I've ever had. The food was very overpriced. Some of the main courses did not even come with potato/veg. There was 6 of us, 4 adults 2 children. Only 2 of us had starters. Each of us had a main course and 3 of us had drinks. Because the pork and the Hake did not come with pot/veg they cost extra. We had no desserts, no teas and coffees. The bill came to 250 euro. The restaurant was over-heated, very uncomfortable. The bizarrest seat we ever had in a restaurant. My family was visiting and the whole experience really ruined our day. Overall a terrible experience.

                                                  We booked in for lunch and received a dinner menu for a 3 course dinner meal. We just wanted something light I ordered a bottle of still water a bottle and was charged 5 .75 euro for it. I thought this was an extortion price.

                                                  Unfortunately this was a disappointing experience. Service was less than satisfactory and the food was by no means near worth the very high prices being charged. Wine was corked, before we had received cocktails. Bread for starters sat on a dispatch table while 2 maitre ds and several waiting staff passed by.

                                                  Beautiful joint of beef fresh from the oven brought to table on trolley and sliced. Very disappointed that I was given the first slice cut (the heel) as it was hardened. I should have been offered the next slice in as I'm sure it would have been very tender however I think this was down to inexperienced staff.

                                                  2 Michelin star Aimsir is right next door and I can't wait to got to it, but if you can't get a table then the Mill is a great alternative. We had lunch and dinner and both were super. The oysters and seafood platter were excellent (with the perfect compliment of the most delicious home made bread). Given my lunch I had the beef for dinner and it was cooked to perfection and just delicious. The wine list isn't the biggest but the choice is good and everything was well priced. The service was brilliant too. I loved it. One thing I would recommend, the room needs some hanging art or tapestries, there's an echo in the room which makes everyone quieter.

                                                  Not much choice from lunch and the meals are all salty including soup. Not bit salty it’s very! I think chef should control the quality before serve to people. Staff are nice but not professional. But the restaurant is very nice! I’m not grist time there but this lunch experience would not recommend to my friend.

                                                  Very pricey for what we got. If you're going to charge €55 for a three-course Sunday lunch then your roast beef main should be more than a single thin slice of meat. Accompanying trimmings had nothing to offer over an average pub carvery. (Starters and desserts did match a higher-end expectation)

                                                  Lovely evening, fantastic ambience and service. Only negative was the starter for €18 was very small. Overall would definitely go back.
