With two floors of dining, an outside seating area and a balcony, our Santry restaurant is a fantastic spot come rain or shine. Located conveniently close to Dublin airport, it also views over the lake at nearby Santry Park.

Try to get seated away from door to patio as the door was ajar a number of times and I had to get up to close it as it was freezing beside it. Servers were going in and out and just not closing it fully at times. Unfortunately they didn’t seem to notice that we were getting up to close it nearly every time they came and went. One person apologised but it didn’t stop it happening. Overall the experience was lovely and I’m sad they’ll be closed again now as I would 100% return. Food was great and other than the door it would’ve been perfect. Good spacing between tables and just a nice atmosphere in general.

This restaurant is in a beautiful location. The customer service was excellent. Very obvious adherence to the covid cleaning guidelines. The food was very good. I have also used this restaurant’s take away service and the standard of food was just as good. I will definitely be back.

Great food, lovely staff, just felt could have used another one or two servers as drinks were slow to come out, and it was slower than usual to get the check after the meal, which can be a good thing as well as they were not rushing us to leave the premises either. The staff were lovely, the food was amazing, and will defiantly be back,

was quieter in the evening, as would normally be used to getting brunch here, when it would be a lot busier.

Nice food, reasonably priced. Found some staff and service good and for for other staff any simple request was a bit too much trouble....

Under covid restrictions found tables a little close together and not sure would I feel 100% comfortable returning in the current climate.

Food was delicious and we ordered dessert but never arrived ☹️. Atmosphere was good bar one customer was quite loud during our time there. But would definitely go back when the government stop closing the restaurants.

The waitress that served me was extremely friendly and happy. I got chicken wings that were very nice for a starter. Then I got a steak and chips, the steak was very fatty.

I always love going to GFP and this was no different. They are well equipped to deal with the current Covid-19 restrictions. The staff were very friendly and the food was delightful as always. The issue I had was with the bill - some of us ordered from the festive and kids menus but this was not reflected on the bill. I am not normally the type to confront this but I did on this occasion and they sorted it immediately. That said it would have been a more enjoyable experience if I did not have to raise the issue. Love this gem of a restaurant and hope to return soon.

Food was delicious. Staff were very nice. We sat outside and we're provided with hit water bottles and blankets which was a lovely touch. There were a few mix ups with our order but they were resolved quickly and staff were very apologetic. Looking forward to returning soon

I enjoyed the meal but where we were seated upstairs got a draft if the main door was open for too long.
I'd reccomend here for casual dining with lovely food.

Understandably, the restaurant & Patrons are making the most of the outdoor space during covid regulations. However its very cold inside to be sittign in the draught of a mostly open door. Ourselves and other tables had to wear coats while sitting inside. The Santry venue has erected Perspex partitions between tables, it might be an idea to do the same around the door to the patio as some measure of protection from the cold draughts.

We would be regular visitors but we were really disappointed. From the start we were shown to our table were the floor was absolutely filthy and the table was positioned beside a door that the waitress and waiter kept leaving open so very uncomfortable and cold. We eventually moved to another table twice to get away from the cold. Then the food came out and it was really disappointing. Sausages were cold, hash browns were cold with a hard texture as if they were in a bain marie all morning so not fresh at all and scrambled eggs of a very bad quality. The 4 of ordered the same dish and on 2 of them the bread wasn't toasted. Really strange visit and extremely disappointing.
