Lovely food / excellent service. We originally were to be seated outside but requested an inside seat as it was a bit cold. Our request was accommodated no problem

As all of our party were not vaccinated, we had to sit out on the street, but the table was great, the service was excellent and the food was very good. A really lovely meal out

Amazing service and outstanding food! We had a starter, main and dessert each and every single dish was gorgeous. I have to give a special mention to the chicken and chorizo risotto, it was one of the best dishes I have had in a long time. The waitresses were so lovely and helpful. Could not recommend the Grapevine enough!

Food is of high standard - casual dining with good menu choice. Good selection of wines. Unfortunately, our experience was far from optimal. We choose outdoor dining and were effectively sitting on a busy pavement with passers by effectively on top of you. Not a healthy place to be. However they have other tables outdoor which are not on pavement. I would recommend outdoor dining but not on a busy weekend.

Delicious prawn starter and we both enjoyed linguine main course and a delicious white wine outdoors, both servers were very pleasant and attentive. All in all a gorgeous night out 🌞

Lovely place, really friendly service and a good menu. Our only disappointment was the desert, otherwise everything was really good including the excellent Riesling. Recommended.

Had a lovely meal here. Staff were very pleasant, food choices are limited, but that just cuts down on decision time really! :-) really beautiful food. Was noisy, but we got used to that quickly. Was a lovely place to spend an evening! Really good selection of wines too.

Really good service. Lovely atmosphere, great wine!! Food was very average. Ordered the chicken and chorizo risotto and essentially received a plate of chicken, very little risotto or chorizo to be seen? Perhaps the kitchen was running low however this was not communicated to us which was disappointing. Three of us ordered this plate and this was felt by all of us.

Lovely Friday evening dinner here. Service was excellently delivered by Pam and her team. She recommended the special surf and turf. €50 for two to share. Half a Lobster and a ribeye steak with parmesan and rocket and plenty of lovely chips. Wine list is very good and it's worth trading up for the best value. Really enjoyed ourselves.

Really enjoyable evening meal. Sat out front on the high stools, good vibe from the mainstreet buzzing away in the background.
Despite the rain, we were well covered overhead and kept warm by the outdoor heaters. (Blankets were offered too).
Food was very tasty with generous portions (smoked salmon, Carpaccio, Steak - all winners).
Wine advice was also on the ball, fantastic bottle of Rully was perfect.
Service in general was very good, attentive throughout. Yep, we enjoyed this one.
