Cinnamon is a comfortable and spacious eatery, coffee house and fully licenced restaurant with a family of warm, genuine and friendly staff located on the Main Street of the cosy village of Ranelagh. We have also just opened an new Cinnamon at 23 The Crescent, Monkstown, Co. Dublin. We have an extensive breakfast and lunch menu to offer Monday to Friday.

When accompanied by one of our delicious wines from our extensive list, you are sure to have a memorable feast.

COVID must have played a big part in the quality of the food. It was not as nice nor as well presented as previously. The service was a bit hectic, I would assume for the same reasons? But we love Cinnamon and will come back again once things settle.

The food was fine I found a frozen chip in my portion of fries which the staff replaced straight away. But I was underwhelmed by the standard of the food overall

Food was good. Got the omelette but looked a little bar on the plate. Maybe a side bit of green or a small slice of toast. That said, overall it was lovely. Staff very friendly. Clean all round

It was disappointing that none of the staff were using any form of masks. The person who greeted us at the door was very offhand, asked if we had booked and walked away without even asking our name. She waved in the direction of the table we were to use. Our server was very pleasant and maintained social distancing but again, no mask. The staff spent a lot of time talking to each other and not attending to the clients. At one point we had to wave and raise to get the attention of our server as the staff were congregated behind the bar chatting. Service was very slow. We were not asked if our meal was satisfactory or if we had enjoyed it. The food was good but the wine was overpriced.

Four people for Sunday dinner. Very pleasant, the waitress was friendly, but not intrusive. Given that it was a Sunday evening the place was very quiet. The food was lovely. We'd go there again.

Have eaten in Cinnamon many times and always very satisfied with the food and service. However on our last visit service was particularly slow, taking approximately an hour for our mains to arrive. Waitress did apologise. The meal was good, however my wife felt the mashed potatoe that accompanied her salmon was very soggy. I had the Red Thai chicken curry, whilst it tasted fine, it was not particularly "Thai" in flavour, the chicken seemed to be charred which added an unusual and unexpected flavour. On the positive side, the chicken wings were divine as usual, the battered fish and lasagne delicious and the outstanding dish was the vegetarian tagine - great flavours! Thanks

Good location in Monkstown village. Good value for money as I had the early bird menu. There was a bit of a gap between the starters and main course. Good choices on the early bird menu too.

I ordered the batteries fish and chips and I felt it was simply reheated, didn’t finish it. Friend had Thai curry and it very very dry. Little cakes taken from fridge, choc fondant ok. Stated wasn’t happy with fish but no apology. Won’t be returning to Cimmamon anytime soon.

We came across Cinnamon while on a walk, exploring the area around our daughter's new school. We just moved from Seattle and were delighted to find this place! It is warm and inviting, with a great menu and really great staff who are always so incredibly kind to our two kids. We've come for both lunch and dinner and the food/wine were amazing. I highly recommend!

This was a disappointing meal. The goats cheese salad had no dressing. The calamari was soggy. The seared tuna was grey and looked/tasted like it was about to go off. The chicken special was over salted. Pretty basic stuff to get wrong. In their defence, the staff were really lovely and when we showed them the tuna they took it off the bill.

Poor service.
Staff need some additional training.
Waitress did not wait until I got to the table before she had already stared to explain the special. I remained standing until she finished.

She did not clear the table fully after the starter.

Food

Steak was poor value. Rib eye was small and was covered up by onions and mushrooms

This was our second visit.
On the first visit the service and friendly reception made us want to go back. Our waitress was Irish and seemed to enjoy her job, we couldn't make our minds up which wine to order so she suggested that we should taste a few, when we were leaving she gave us a piece of cake. These small touches make all the differences and brought us back. I should also add that the food was tasty.
On our recent visit the food was bland, the service whilst ok lacked the touches that brought us back.
Hope the above is helpful.
