We’d a lovely evening. The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly. All of us were extremely happy with our food. Definitely will be making a return visit.

3 generations of my family visìted The Gourmet Food Parlour (Dun Laoire) following a recommendation by another family member. We all loved it and it was delightful in every way. It had a great buzz at lunch/brunchtime on a Sunday. The hostess was really accommodating and kindly seated us in their quietest room. The staff were both professional and kind. The food was delicious, beautifully presented, hot and plentiful. 2 guests were vegetarian and were thrilled with their many options. The Eggs Benedict was one of best ever. The birthday guest's dessert (brownie) was served really thoughtfully, and with a candle. We would 100% recommend The Gourmet Food Parlour based on our wonderful experience there. Many thanks to the staff for making it extra special! PS the coffee was excellent too!

The menu online is totally different to the actual menu. There was no Kids Tapas menu, part of the reason we went. No garlic aioli with chips as it states on menu? My daughter tried to order dessert of
cookies and was bluntly told no cookies, no apology, just darn right rude. The burger was tasteless and certainly not worth the money. Service was not good and we we never asked how our food was. We sat beside the door as you enter, big mistake. The waitress dropped all the food menu's which are on a board the the noise was frightening, everybody jumped, no apology given. The menus could do with a face lift as they were very grubby and worn, plus filthy. When we received our bill, the waitress stood there beside us not giving us the comfort to check this bill. Overall the experience was not great, food fair, staff rude and we will certainly not be returning. I would not recommend Gourmet Food Parlour Dun Laoghaire.

Excellent service by our server. We were given ample time to decide our order. The food was delivered to our table promptly and without any delay between courses. The food was delicious and excellent value for money as we availed of the early bird menu. Serving staff were very attentive. Would recommend GFP and I will be back!

Adult sons, girlfriend and ourselves (parents) had a very tasty brunch in GFP prior to All Ireland Football final. Between us, we had a section of Farmhouse Breakfasts, scrambled egg and pancakes with bacon. Everyone was very happy with food; good quality, nicely cooked and plenty of it. Service was excellent and very friendly; there was plenty of banter about the match and it set us all up nicely for the day. Match a draw so looks like we'll have to repeat the exercise in another 10 days!

Food for the adults was good, and generous portions. Chips lovely. Water good value. What let them down was the kids pasta & tomato sauce for eur 6.50. A bowl of linguine barely coated in sauce. Not the most practical pasta shape for small kids & I make a better sauce myself. Very disappointing for the money. Can't help feeling ripped off.

I always thought there could be no science or big secret in preparing scrambled eggs with toast. Well, I was wrong. I don’t know what their secret is, but the scrambled eggs and toast I just had at the Gourmet Food Parlour were absolutely amazing. I will be going back again and again and again …

Food and Service very good, noise level very high due to high roof, so expected but music was added making a conversation between 6 at a table impossible, add some kids/babies ;-) and you have the opportunity of even more noise.

Was very disappointed with this visit. I don't know if they were short staffed but the food was cold when it arrived. Cold tomatoes and cold eggs. My husband also thought his sausages had been microwaved. Second coffees took ages to arrive so we were nearly ready to leave when they did. Normally I love visiting here so I hope it was just a bad day.

We had booked a table for 230 we were seated and we were given menus which we waiting to be served for 15 to 20 mins by a manager the man who served us was not very friendly took our order and we then waiting another 25 mins for our food to be served the service was not good. I asked the man re our food and he just shrugged his shoulders luckily the food was worth waiting for but not good enough

Staff very pleasant. Liked the place. Food was ok but nothing special. Proices reasonable. Would I recommend it to anyone. Only on the basis of what I have typed here. Would I go back again? Possibly. Myabe for something small - like a sandwich & a coffee or light lunch. Would I be in a hurry to go back again? No.

Lovely food. Our table had paid separately and the restaurant said one of our parties didn’t pay when she clearly had. The waitress took a lot of time to actually believe us and had to call the manager over to agree we all had paid. Very disappointing
