we waited for an hour for starters and a further 40mins after starters for our main courses last Saturday, we were given 2 bowls of chips as an apology which i do not feel was adequate

Service was very good with food served fast and with a smile.

For our group size I feel the table was a bit small. We had to put our wine bottles on the floor.

Food was good. The mains €6 supplement seemed a but much for a very small portion of sea bass.

Overall happy with experience

We came here for brunch on a busy Sunday and from start to finish it was really good. The staff are very friendly and nothing is a problem for them. One of our friends had a few requests with her food order and it came out just how she asked for.
The food was delicious and the menu has something to please everyone.

The restaurant is clean and the atmosphere was great in there, tables aren't too close together either so that was nice.

We will definitely be back here again!

We waited for 20mins for our drinks, a coffee, and a soft drink, which I had to ask about. We also asked for water which didn't arrive. Our drinks arrived at the same time as our food. I asked for smashed avocado and poached eggs, it came without the eggs, so had to send it back and wait for that. It was busy but there seemed to be a lot of staff around. The food was good, it's a real shame about the service because the place is so nice! The second time I have come and the service has been slow

Service was very poor. We had to ask 3/4 times for water. There was 5 of us and the waiter didn't bring out one of the meals for 10 minutes. When it came it was cold and was missing items which we had to ask for. No one was in a hurry to help us either.

Food was usual high quality,staff are exceptional.Their attention to detail is fantastic ,even with a busy house.My only dislike was the guy playing the violin in the corner was very loud.Had to shout to have a conversation which is a pity because the ambiance of this place dosent need a distraction like your average loud pub.

We had a very pleasant meal here on a nice sunny evening (we were sat by the large window). Service was good. Duck was lovely as was the sea bass, though the fish pie was a rather small portion and rather dry. Nice ambience.

Excellent food, service not great. Got served 5 of our 6 meals, waited 10 minutes for the last person to get theirs and only after we reminded them. Then no one came back to the table after that so had to get up and go to the counter to get the tea that we had ordered as part of our meal.
Aside from the service, everything else was great.

We have been to Gourmet Food Parlour several times and have always had a great experience however yesterday was a disappointment.
We had a vegan in our party who was very disappointed with the changes to the vegan breakfast which is now mainly beans on toast with mushroom and tomoato, several other items which had been on it, have been removed including sweet potato & guacamole but the price has stayed the same . It represents very bad value for money.
The kickstart breakfast (which I have had before) is supposed to contain sweet potato rosti but it came with a tasteless hash brown which did not contain any sweet potato. The bacon served with this was rubbery and overall I didn't enjoy it and didn't eat much other than the eggs which were good. When the server came to remove the plates, he did not comment or ask when he saw how much of my plate was returning to the kitchen and when I pointed out that there was no sweet potato as described, he just shrugged.
In addition there was a slightly longer than usual or normal wait until the food arrived and just in general, while the service was reasonably good, it wasn't great as we have experienced in the past.
Lastly, one thing that really annoyed one of our party was the extra 50cent which is charged for a decaf coffee - we have never seen this before anywhere else and it seems a bit much. Paying €3.20 for a decaf coffee - is there any need for this?

We take our customers feedback very seriously I truly hope we can welcome you back to show you a true GFP experience

Really enjoyed the visit, just one thing to note. Once we were served, it was extremely hard to get anyone's attention for more service, which became very distracting. Even when we did eventually get noticed, the order was forgotten about and it was a case of trying to get someone's attention again! The food was good, the surroundings were lovely and the staff friendly. I will be back.
