    We have never been disappointed before at the Avenue restaurant but unfortunately this time we were! The lamb shank was not tender and did not fall off the bone as it should! It was tough and chewy ! We told this to the waitress but nobody addressed it or came back to us so we paid our bill in full and left ! Very disappointed Helen & Clare

    Food was exceptional and there was a great atmosphere in the restaurant. Unfortunately, the service was a let down. We had ordered some drinks and one of them was incorrect. Starters arrived, were eaten and cleared and still no sign of the drink. Main course came and half way through the drink came. No one checked to see if everything was okay. We asked for more water and it also never came.

    Normally excellent but on this occasion we were waiting a long time to be served & I ordered a plain Caesar salad, the menu said €12 but when I checked the receipt on returning home we were charged €17.90 so not sure where the mistake was?
