    Everything about the place was excellent but the only gripe was that the Guinness Pie, as written in menu, was not a Pie!! Small portion of cubed meat and mash on plate!! Very disappointed as never had a Pie with no pastry!!!

    I really enjoy Walter’s as a day time venue, I find it really family friendly and have never had issues going with friends with multiple buggies. On this occasion we had lunch and the burger was cold but the seafood pasta was very good and even enjoyed by my toddler. Found it quite expensive for what it wall was though

    Took ages to bring drinks. Some of the food was cold. Not one person came up to check on food or ask how we were getting on etc. A drunk man abusing his partner at bar and was continued to be served. One of the worst meal experiences Iv ever had. Wouldn’t even give this place a second chance. Train your staff. Loads on and it was a quite night.

    Very friendly staff and good food. Booked a table for 8:30pm for dinner but were told when we sat down the kitchen was closing and if we wanted starters they would have to be served with mains. Maybe make the last booking earlier than 8:30pm? Could not get cocktails after meal.

    This was the first time I’d eaten in Walters. To say it was disappointing is an understatement. The whole experience was very poor. We had to ask for everything from condiments to water. The food was reheated and not fresh. The pea purée with my fish and chips was almost solid. The fish still has skin on it. The salad leaves were wilted and brown. Not once did a staff member ask was everything ok. Not even on paying the bill. Which for what we got was very expensive.

    We had a very nice meal at Walters, I had the steak sandwich which was lovely, my friends had burgers and fish and they were very happy also. They also really enjoyed the desserts, strawberry cheesecake and a Sundae. To be honest the Sundae was really just a bowl of ice cream, if you are expecting an old fashioned Sundae in a tall glass you might be disappointed. The service was friendly, though a tiny bit erratic, and there was a couple of beverages on the menu that we didn't have, but they were removed without fuss. The atmosphere is very nice, chilled and comfortable. We had a very enjoyable evening and will definitely be back.

    Overall this is more of a daytime place and the food and board games for kids is nice. The food was good, though would not recommend for an evenning meal. It would be a nice spot after a daytime walk on the pier at Dunlaoghiare or at the Peoples Park.

    Generally very good. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was well prepared and good value for money. The only let down was the toilet facilities. The male toilets had a bad smell, were not up to a good standard and probably the worst I experienced in a pub/restaurant during my week's holiday in Ireland.
