We celebrate my husband birthday in Zaks. Dinner was simply amazing from start to finish. The quality was excellent and each dish was presented beautifully. The staff were friendly, professional and efficient. Looking forward to returning and trying some other dishes out.

We tried out afternoon tea here and it was very good. We were served smoked salmon, home baked ham and chicken open sandwiches. We had scones and cream (with jam), and a selection of desserts/pastries which included profiteroles, mini meringues, chocolate brownie (plus one other dessert), crème brûlée, chocolate with salted toffee pot, lemon pot and one other dessert.

Enjoyable and tasty meal here as part of an overnight package. I had a lovely and good quality fillet steak and my partner had the vegetarian main of risotto. Very helpful and attentive staff and a nice relaxed atmosphere on a Saturday night. Breakfast was very nice and plenty of it too to enjoy with the complementary Sunday papers.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Zaks restaurant. We had two set menus at 27€ each (3 courses with really big portions) - great value for money! - and a chateaubriand for two, which was also very delicious. Very good service as we'll. I'd definitely recommend this place for a nice dinner.

Lovely food. Lovely setting. Think though the management need to improve the bar. They ran out of Guinness Budweiser and a few others in the afternoon and it was a small wedding. Poor selection of drinks. Staff were nice particularly the waitress.

Great service and great food. Saturday night was better than Sunday but it was still good. We used the set menu and found it reasonably priced at 27 euros. Breakfast was nice.

Went for the early bird, the service was first class, attentive, friendly but not overly so, they struck the right balance. Had the Cured Salmon starter, excellent. The confit of belly pork was beautiful and tender, skin a bit rubbery and the Creme Brulee was perfect. Atmosphere is light, fresh and airy with a traditional twist. An all round good... More

My wife and I enjoyed our first ever afternoon tea and it was in Ireland. What a perfect place to enjoy that experience. My wife was overjoyed with her tea party. Service was great and so was the food. She really enjoyed the scone, a blueberry cream cake, the lemon curd and the chocolate pot de creme. We also had... More

Really tasty meal. Staff were very friendly and most of the food was delicious. Would recommend the duck. The prices are high but you get what you pay for.
