    Brabazon restaurant is set in the lush grounds of Tankardstown House, cut stone walls, pretty florals and greenery decorate this beautifully restored room. We arrived for Sunday lunch and were warmly greeted and brought to our table. We ordered duck parfait (so smooth), veg soup, and pear & blue cheese salad , all were equally delicious. Roast Sirlion beef and pan fried cod were very good, beef served with perfect al dente veg of carrots and tender stem brocolli. Deconstructed blood orange trifles were equally good, the jelly had a strong hint of delicious blood oranges. All washed down with a perfect Italian Valpolicella. Highly recommended.

    I would highly recommend Brabazon restaurant. We had a lovely experience on Saturday night. From the minute we walked in we were greeted by very friendly staff, lovely interiors, & absolutely delicious food. It was so artistically presented along with the surprises entremets. It was also lovely not to be rushed off the table. I look forward to returning. Thankyou.

    Food and ambience was lovely , very tasty in a lovely conservatory. One of the waiters' clothes looked a little grubby for such a setting with food stains and black jeans ...could look more professional in my opinion.

    Went out for a quiet evening out but the piano music was far too loud and energetic. If the lid was closed, the volume would probably be acceptable. Softer and rather peaceful music would suit me better. That said, the food was gourmet and staff were friendly, efficient and personable. Minus the noise, a lovely evening was had.

    Overall a lovely resturant. Beautiful setting. Food was tasty if not a little sparse and maybe a little extra sides would have lifted the meal. Salad starter was bland but soup starter was good. Was a little underwhelmed with the meal Overall for the cost. Music was loud from overhead speakers at times but a staff member was very prompt In sorting this. Staff are very friendly and professional and service was faultless.

    2nd time here in 6 months, on previous occasion found the waiters manner quite rude/uncomfortable. Different waiter on this occasion and were shocked that she rolled her eyes when my wife suggested we wait until after our meal to order our desert. Food was good, but hard to fathom how professional hospitability is missing, look elsewhere for genuine friendly service.

    I loved Brabazon Restaurant from the moment we walked in. A gorgeous atmosphere with a cosy fire lit. The staff were so friendly and welcoming… and the food!! We ordered the €70 tasting menu and it was incredible. The portions were perfect size.. the food was so delicate but so tasty, we honestly enjoyed every mouthful!! The wine was paired with each dish which was great to explore new wines (Finca is our new favourite white 🤗). The staff were so helpful throughout, giving background on each dish and wine. If you’re looking for a special treat, this is where you need to be.. we’ll certainly be back!! Highly recommend

    Experience was good with comfortable surrounds and efficient service. The facility offered a pleasant atmosphere but did not provide facilities for a pre-lunch drink other than table service, this was a little disappointing. Food experience was good with beef offered and provided to personal taste. Vegetables were somewhat scarce for two but what was provided was presented well and cooked perfectly. The temperature of the food was acceptable but marginal which detracted from the quality of the experience. The cost was overall expensive for that provided but is obviously a reflection of the market or footfall. Certainly would recommend the Brabazon but with a cost caution to a friend.

    We had the 7 course tasting with the wine pairing. The food was absolutely delicious and a lovely treat. The wine pairing was great and staff amazing. Really couldn't fault them or the food. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and very tastfully done, however I found it lacked atmosphere or there was just something missing. In saying that I have a table booked to return so maybr it was just a quieter night....
