    This is our fave Avoca and again it did not disappoint. When booking I flagged that this was a birthday brunch and as soon as we arrived we were asked who the birthday person was. We were brought complimentary bubbles which I thought was a lovely gesture and was much appreciated by us. The food was delicious as always.

    Everything was nice except I ordered the mushrooms with eggs and there was a piled high mountain of mushrooms in this black and grey like sauce burying the sourdough toast and makes its soggy. Eggs were good. But the mushroom stuff was not at all attractive and appealing. Way too much and over the top. 1/10th of the mushrooms would have been plenty.

    I had booked a table for 10am, we arrived early and were seated promptly. Our order was taken and then we waited. After 25 minutes I managed to get the attention of a waiter (I had been trying for a while) and asked where our food was, the waiter said he’d check with the kitchen and miraculously arrived back with it. It had obviously been sitting on the hot plate for a while as I was unable to cut the bacon and the pancakes were completely inedible. I had to send it back. About 90 seconds later the waiter arrived back with “fresh” pancakes - these were marginally better in that I managed to be able to eat half of 1 pancake, the bacon was still over cooked (it was the original bacon), it was only the fruit I could eat. No one came back near us, i tried to get someone’s attention but couldn’t, so gave up and made an attempt to eat something (I was quite hungry). My friend had ordered an americano and when we queried where it was (again took multiple attempts to get anyone’s attention), again it miraculously appeared. I explained that my food was still inedible, but that we were under some time pressure, so could we just have the bill. We had now been in the restaurant for an hour, and I had managed to eat half a pancake and the small serving of fruit. The bill arrived out and we were charged for everything (except the americano that was for my friend) even though it was inedible. The waiter made a big deal of us not having to pay for the americano, I was incredulous. We were under time pressure, so we paid the bill and left. I can safely say that I will not be returning to this restaurant again. Avoca used to have a good name for both food and service in the restaurants but the experience I had this morning was just awful.

    We waited over an hour for our food, table of 6 and service charge was included which we complained about as the service was so bad and we were told what did we expect it was a Saturday despite all the other tables around us being served, the attitude of the manager was shocking

    Great location, nice venue. Food was tasty and reasonable for lunch. Service be non existent, possibly due to new staff ; might as well have been a counter service restaurant.

    Hello The choice of foods was limited and very expensive for lunch options. The caesar salad had way too much dressing on it. And service was slow.

    The cooked Breakfast is a safe bet. However My friend asked for simple scrambled eggs and mushrooms and got inedible mushrooms in a bowl. The waiter had a blank expression when he was told. No idea how to deal with it and charged of course! Generally Avoca is overpriced

    To be honest I was quite disappointed. The staff were not particularly friendly. I had the pancakes which were hard and quite in edible, although the fruit and yoghurt on the plate were lovely. I thought The meal was not great value, for two people including tip it was €42. For that we each had one course, my friend had tea and I had orange juice. Not sure I will be rushing back.
