    Farmer browns used to be one of my favourite places to eat when I lived in the neighbourhood. I hadn't been to the restaurant in a couple of years when I booked in over the weekend. I was really disappointed. The decor has gone really shabby, and the restaurant felt grubby. There was different music playing inside and outside on the terrace, and with the door open, that became really distracting. We were the only people sitting inside the restaurant, and it was really quiet outside two, with just a couple of tables filled. Despite this, the table next to us remained stacked with plates and food left from previous diners for 20 minutes. When our starters arrived, one of the waitstaff started hovering next to us. Our drinks came warm. The starter of chicken wings was nice, but that was the highlight of the meal. Service was extremely slow - we waited about 45 minutes between our starters and main. My partner's order was wrong, and my salad had no dressing on it. Despite all of this, it was pricey. It's a shame to see a once-famous eatery lose its charm. I hope it will regain it.

    I had the nachos and I was disappointed as they were flooded with sour cream, had very little chilli beef and the guacamole didn’t taste like guacamole, it was more like avocado mixed with sour cream or something like that, so the price of €17 was not good value for what I had. On a good note, the staff were nice and friendly. There’s a Mexican restaurant nearby, so if you want to serve nachos, you should do better than that, or maybe just focus on burgers, those are good.

    Creative, intimate colorful! Service is friendly witty and international. We ate with a big group at the harvest table, long, cozy, and accommodating for people to join us! Sangria was awesome. Accommodating for meat eaters, snickers, vegetarians, and creative take on international favorites!

    I've eaten here a few times before but it was just really bad this time. Nachos were undercooked and clumped together, tacos had very little flavour in the meat, the sparkling wine was cheap plonk that they were charging nearly 30 quid for. I won't be back.

    We had a booking for 2 for 8:15 on SAT. On arrival no one checked if we had booked, we were pointed to a seat outside. Restaurant was quiet. There seemed to have 3 staff on the floor. even though it was not busy we were abandoned outside and only got a menu after we prompted the staff 3 times. The food arrived with no cutlery on the table. we prompt the staff twice, nothing was brought to the table, so we ended up collecting it ourselves from the cashier desk. Then we had to ask for sauces (ketchup/ mayo /… ) nothing was brought to the table ( there was no point prompting the staff for anything)! we ordered a glass of wine we got 1/2 bottle, even after saying it to the waitress and waiter nothing was done so we were still charged for 1/2 bottle. To top a poor service even more … We were seated at the table of 4. Half way through our meal we were asked to separate our table, as there were new arrivals. Although at this point there were number of other empty seats inside the restaurant and at the upper deck. This was very disturbing. The staff should have used their sound judgment and not move any guests in the middle of their meal. I can appreciate the staff wanting to accommodate everyone, but not at the expense of comfort of existing guests !! Staff were polite but the attention to service was horribly poor, there was no one overseeing the floor ensuring guests are OK. We wont return … due to lack of service

    Steak salad more expensive that regular steak dish and didn't come with chips as described in menu even though i asked but was told it didn't. Also there were flies going around our table which was a bit off putting. I have had good experiences in this restaurant prior to this night but this was a little disappointing and I am wondering if standards have slipped.

    Overpriced for what was not great food. One of the steaks was borderline off and the fish was very poor. Desert was pretty basic - slab of lemon merengue pie or brownie with no flair.

    We had had breakfast in Farmer Browns before and it was very nice. We read the chicken wings were nice so we decided to repeat this time for a dinner. Well the chicken wings were dry and basically bones, not really meat. We order also the wraps of chicken with chorizo and same thing, dry and no taste. Not worth at all the 35 eur we paid for both dishes

    The food and the overall experience was grand and normal for an average cafe which is what Farmer browns is. We had expected so much more because we needed to reserve a table over a week in advance for lunch. The demand was clearly high but don't believe the hype, its very ordinary and nothing to write home about. Its a fancy greasy spoon.

    Forgot our booking so had to wait 20 minutes, no offer of a complementary drink. Didn't have three of the wines we asked for as the delivery hadn't arrived so we had to take what was available. Nice staff but could have done a little more to apologise for the wait and lack of wine choice from the menu. I don' think ill be recommending or be back

    Good service and lovely staff. I really like the restaurant and the atmosphere, but unfortunately the chicken wings we had were not very good. They had very little meat and were quite sickening. We couldn't finish them and left hungry. That wouldn't put me off going again as the burgers and brunch look amazing but I would not recommend the wings!

    Farmer Browns Rathmines is an ideal venue for pre or post local cinema visit. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and had reserved a warm cosy corner - as we had requested. The food variety on the menu is a welcome change from what's usually offered and the food quality and presentation is excellent.
