    Stayed at the hotel and could not fault the room which was beautiful and reception staff lovely. The Sally Gap though was very hit & miss service. Linch/afternoon we had to ask 3 times for our drinks, food had arrived in the meantime. Had booked for dinner in the evening as well. We ordered our wine and main course, bread was put on table but food then arrived within 5 minutes, which was not hot enough so had to send back. Doesn’t look great to get a meal out that quick and then for it to be tepid. However the food wS very nice. When we had finished we were left sitting with empty plates for 30minutes. Not once did anyone check on us or top up our water or wine. For a 5 star hotel where paying above the odds I would have expected better service.

    From start to finish our experience at Sallygap was fantastic. All the staff were so friendly and efficient. Fernanda was so accommodating. We said in passing that we were there celebrating because my sister had just finished college and fernanda got us a congratulations plate, which I though was such an amazing touch. The atmosphere was lively and energetic, but the food was definitely the star of the show. We got the warm goats cheese salad to start and the burger with parmesan truffle fries for mains, I could not recommend it enough. We left knowing we were going to have cravings for the food we had there for weeks. Was such a lovely treat and will definitely be back.

    Lovely experience dining in the Sally Gap. Georgious and Lucy were fabulous members of staff who made our experience very special. The only criticism was that the dining area was very poorly lit - many customers had to use light on their mobile phones to read the menu. Fabulous meal

    Booked a table few weeks in advance. Disappointed to see we were at a high table. Asked to be moved to a lower one but told none available. Saw good few empty tables when leaving couple hours later.. Anyway, the high couch is quite uncomfortable for eating or drinking. No support and keeps collapsing. Service is fine though I've drink order for forgotten about. We ordered burgers and they were delicious, which was the main positive. But for the price we paid (32euro burger) I'd expect better tables

    We booked for the standard seating option but we were shown to a high seating table which was very small and not comfortable. We asked if we could move to the lower seating and were told there were none available. Within 5 mins three tables behind us were available. A couple were shown to one of them. I eventually did ask again and we were moved to a more acceptable and comfortable table.

    Food reasonably good but you have to wait for it. The staff were friendly but under pressure and perhaps inexperienced. The noise level was also totally unacceptable with the barman smashing bottles into the bottle bin with gusto - it became a joke. Huge potential but a wasted Easter Sunday lunch with a very disappointing experience.

    We stayed in the beautiful Powerscourt hotel and chose to eat in this restaurant, this was a mistake. I was surprised that the food and service were so poor, mostly the food. It felt reheated and not fresh which was surprising for the price. Disappointing as we should have eaten in Sika which is fabulous.

    Both had fillet steak. Was good perfectly cooked maybe a little small. Would have gone for chateaubriand but it takes upwards of 45 minutes so didn’t. Ordered bottle of white wasn’t given option to taste, not great for €45. Great salads for starters but waiter was not familiar with the menu so gave us the wrong dishes. We had tucked in before we realized so we just swapped. Still great salad especially the feta and beetroot. We didn’t have dessert. Moved into the bar area and ordered cocktails. Took almost 20 minutes. I ordered a margarita and was bit disappointed that the glass wasn’t salted but realized half way through that the glass was indeed salted but the salt had melted down the sides of the glass. The glass must have been prepared hours earlier and it wasn’t pretty. At 11.00pm we were told the bar was closing and did we want any last drinks? At a 5 star hotel? In short, ok steak nice salad expensive drinks.

    Service was friendly and efficient. Food was tasty but extremely overpriced for what it was, €48 for a small fillet steak. Even for a five star hotel this is too much and not justifiable. The meal with just two main courses and three drinks, including a bottle of still water, cost €150.00.

    The service is very poor. You have to walk to the bar to ask for your drink. At the table we were served by etremely unprofessional waiter. Slow and inefficient. People who arrived half an hour after us were served faster then us. My daughter and son in law left the table after 40 minutes waiting for the dessert that arrived after their departure. They couldn’t wait any more. 48€ fillet steak was burned and dry. Couldn’t chew through it. Very dissapointing.

    We were placed at a table that was so close to the next one we could hear everything the couple beside us were saying and visa versa. This made it uncomfortable and difficult to talk freely. Otherwise the buzz in the restaurant was nice. I understand it is a busy restaurant and you need to fit in as many people as possible. If we return I will ask for a table not so close to another one.
