Love this restaurant. Breakfast on a Sunday morning is fantastic. Such a chill out with the sunday papers. Food is so good you could throw a dart at the menu and still be delighted with whatever it landed on.

I met a friend for brunch; hadn't been in since the Covid restrictions had begun. I was pleased with the online booking system. It was great to see everyone adhering to the guidelines, including all the other customers.
Service was fab and the food was scrummy. Will definitely be back soon!

We've been visiting the Gourmet Food Parlour in Swords since shortly after it opened in 2008. It was also the first restaurant we visited when they reopened following the COVID-19 lockdown. This particular visit was for Sunday brunch. The food was delicious as usual and the service friendly and excellent. Unfortunately they had run out of our favourite brunch tipple, Aperol, so we got to try their elderflower spritz which was very nice! We'll definitely be back.....

Was just not nice. The sandwich was very bland. I could have done better myself. I want to like here but this is the second time I have been disappointed. I won't be back, nothing worse that going for food and from bite 1 it is disappointing.

Enjoyed a lovely meal with.my husband. Food was delicous.
There was lots of social distancing and every table and chairs was cleaned down as people left. All staff had masks and costomers had to wear face covering when entering the restrant and while walking around which left me feeling very safe to enjoy or first night out since before lockdown. Will most defenitly be returning again soon

I took the vegan full breakfast which cost me 11 euro. Overall it was great I but I felt that there was too little food. I got one sausage and pudding where as other diners that got full breakfasts got bacon, eggs, pudding, potato cakes sausages etc. for 2 euro more. I understand that it is more difficult to find vegan options for these though. Otherwise the service was great and overall experience was good too.
