    This is a place that always delivers and it’s a big favourite of ours. It did feel that for once this kitchen was not quite a full throttle, or that it was too busy to hit its usual quality levels. Two of us had Sean Rings chicken and fou dit to be so over salted that we could not finish it. Everyone else seems pretty happy though. Bottom end of the wine list is tippy at around €45 but at that point the quality was excellent. A good night out

    We are regular visitors and the whole package is usually excellent. Last Saturdy night was no exception. 69.95 for three courses of quality food is really good value.

    As a long term fan of Bresson, I have to say that we had a wonderful dining experience again last evening when we shared the Bresson ambience with a number of guests from London who we introduced to Bresson for their first time. Well done you guys, you all did it again. Keep smiling, Norman Kilroy

    Excellent food and service, lovely menu and varied wine list with several price levels. Only gripe is having to ask for the automatic service charge for all table sizes of 12.5% to be removed so we could tip the staff directly instead. Otherwise a lovely evening.

    Overpriced for the food we received. No veg. We had to pay extra for chips even though the 3 course meal was €69.99. Whether you are a vegetarian or a meat eater - you pay the same (for cheese and carrots) ! The air conditioning was on throughout and it was very cold. We were frozen by the end of the meal. I'm just disappointed.

    The food was fine. My steak was underdone and not medium as requested but overall is was tasty. There was some maintenance going on in the background using a hammer drill. Staff were friendly but not overfriendly.

    The menu was a set menu at 70 per head which we were not advised of prior to booking. We wouldnt usually get either starter and desert so not impressed that the decision is taken away for you and automatically your charged 70eur. The food was beautiful but it would be nice to have a choice.

    We were on time when we arrived and were rushed to the table. We were not offered an aperitif. We ordered the wine immediately and sparkling water. Tap water appeared promptly and we then ordered our food. By the time the amuse bouche came we still had no wine so we decided to wait. They then arrived with the completely wrong wine. As we were waiting for it our starter arrived and they went to clear away the uneaten amuse bouche. We felt very rushed. Don’t like the set menu where you have to have a dessert
