    The menu was limited but good. We made it tapas-like by choosing a number of light bites though their mains looked good. I saw just one vegetarian option on the mains. Some very good wines, as you would expect.

    Absolutely love Ely, its my favourite night out. Disappointed with service tonight as initially wrong bottle of Cava poured, then when the correct one arrived it fizzed up and the waitress spilled it on the floor before pouring. Still thoroughly enjoyed our night

    The food and service were good, but the place is too noisy and distracting, there were two of us and we were seated at a table for four, on the first floor near the stairs right at the entrance, a very unpleasant place to have a quiet conversation with your loved one.

    My husband and myself like Ely's wine selection and frequently go there for having a drink. Yesterday evening we tried the food for the first time. I had sourdough bread which was delicious and my husband had kalamari which he said was ok. But the main dishes were just ok. I ordered pan fried dish it was good but my husband ordered steak medium rare and it was over cooked and tasteless.

    Visited Maynooth for a wedding and booked ELY for the Friday evening. Four of us were eating and I have to say what an amazing place. Food was delicious and service was absolutely superb. If we were ever visiting again we would 100% visit again. What a fantastic place. Thank you.

Our server was pleasant and attentive without being intrusive and offered suggestions for our meal. The food was delicious, hot and well seasoned. Looking forward to our next visit.

    Love everything about Ely in Maynooth, delicious food, extensive wine list, brilliant staff, so tastefully decorated inside. Quickly becoming a favourite. We had a poor experience in Ely Dublin but following a very nice impromptu day outside Ely Maynooth for wine and food in late summer, we decided to come back for dinner in December and we had a brilliant evening. The fire was lit upstairs, the menu is well priced for current times, great value for the standard of food that was served to us. The girls serving us were so friendly and polite. Will be coming back with friends.
