I used to love this restaurant. It was part of the fun when I was going to the shopping outlet. Went there two weeks ago with the same urge as ever. And there was the surprise. Very long and slow queue, we had the feeling they were waiting for us to eat and leave as soon as possible for the... More

Went there after long time with my friend for a quick bite this sunday, and I need to say we were delighted! It was later at evening and we wanted something quick, but imidietly when I opened the menu I checked if they have risotto because (I don't know why) they are changing menu very often, and earlier before I...

It's been a long time since we visited here . However today's visit was well worth the wait . The menu has at long last been updated with a real main course and I'm told more to come . Woohoo! We savoured the new chicken with prosciutto dish and loved every morsel . Our enjoyment was topped off by a... More

We had Sunday lunch here. We were brought to our table by a lovely Italian girl (which added to the Italian feel of the restaurant), who told us about the specials and the set menu. Our order was taken and the food arrived promptly. We had lovely warm bread and pesto as a starter and then the tuna salad and... More

Was very disappointed with this restaurant. Have always looked at it and thought it looked good. Went for dinner last week and the service was ok. Staff looked like they really didn't want to be there. The food was thrown at us and the portion size was quite small. The food actually looked like it had been thrown together. My... More

It is always disappointing to read a negative review and I apologize for a disappointing dining experience at our restaurant. Please be assured that our beef comes straight from the Gilligan farm in Roscommon and 100 percent Hereford beef. I have discussed your review with the chef and hopefully improvements are now in place. More

Had a late breakfast here yesterday (Saturday) - two adults and one toddler (in a buggy). We were lucky enough to get a 'parking' space in the lobby for the buggy, but with two other buggies already there, our one almost filled the whole lobby up. We were seated quickly enough and left for a while to have a look... More

I must agree that last week was particularly busy at Kildare and I understand the obvious logistics involved for families with buggies and prams . However we do love having families at the restaurant. More

Have been here several Sunday mornings over the last while, usually en-route to the races, as opposed to the shops, so going out of our way to eat here, which says it all. The breakfast is just that bit different, Tuscan sausage, great quality bacon and lovely bread instead of the ubiquitous white pan toast. Choice of eggs and good... More

We really appreciated the authentic Italian flavour of the dishes: - Salame al Chianti DOCG - Bruschetta rustica - Panzerotti con funghi di bosco - Tagliatelle al ragú - Tiramisú As Italian it was a real jump into our cuisine and it seamed to be at home. Cherry on the cake...smiling and kind staff!!! ;-)
