Lovely experience up in Johnnie Fox's. The reduced menu meant our choices were limited but still very enjoyable. Staff were fantastic, even adding decorations to a cake brought in for my Father's birthday. Fantastic place.

Had a nice evening at Johnny Foxes . The food is always great although the menu has gotten much smaller since covid started but still a nice choice . Miss the fish and chips as they used to do them very well and the bacon and cabbage and oysters but lots of other nice dishes. Irish coffee very good . Staff very nice and efficient and friendldy .

Food was nice but apart from that it was just OK. Service was desperate, we were brought to our table and left there after nearly 20 minutes we had to call the waitress to take our and get a drink as she was just walking around like a headless chicken. That was fine had our order taken. Received our starters which was soup and to be honest was the best part of the whole night, we Received our mains the bottom of my fish pie was burnt!! The chicken meal was fine. When we finished our mains we waited with our plates to the side of the table so the waitress would know we were finished so she could clear the table which after about 20 minutes again after numerous other staff had walked 0ast our table us sitting there with no food or drink we had wanted to order dessert but in the end we just asked for our bill and left. We will not return or recommend Johnnie Fox's to anyone

Returning to Johnnys for the first time in many years i waa looking forward to the booking. Its an hour amd a half journey each way so really wanted a great experience. There are a few things you should know before booking. The place is still fabulous and very organised. Dining in the restaurant is mostly covered with some tables in sunshine. On a hot Sunday the shade was greatly appreciated. The menu you must know but is greatly reduced. Aa a multiple starter fan there are only four startrers chowder, mussels soup and a salad. The mains were amazing so i skipped any starter and thoroughly enjoyed main of beef and guiness pie. Others enjoyed the steak. If you are a prosecco fan or nice wine drinker however you will be dissapointed. Cheap plonk was not a good accompaniant to the beautiful food although others at the table enjoyed pints i was left lacking. Desserts are shop bought and not worth the waste of calories or loosing the taste of your fabulous mains. Traditional music was softly playing in the background which was a nice lift to the ambience. We moved to the front section for after dinner drinks which is now also serving light snacks such as toasted sandwiches which are lovely but no music in this area left it feeling dead and lacked the typical johnny foxes ambiemce. Its fine if you cannit get into restaurant. Bookings we saw that day are essential as we saw a lot of people sadly been turned away. This is typical of anywhere in Ireland now. Its still a nice place to go for a day out for nice dinner but with a few tweeks could be fantastic. Still enjoyable day out.

While walking the Wicklow way, we stopped at Johnny Fox's for lunch. Fantastic service. We arrived an hour earlier than our reservation but the gentleman at the door was very accommodating. Food was really lovely. Simple menu but wonderfully executed dishes. We had attentive waiting staff with a pleasant attitude and cheery disposition. Wonderful experience. On a side note: many places seen to be struggling to maintain great service and quality during these trying times, Johnny fox's have proven that it can be done. ☺️

My chowder was lovely but FULL of salt which was disappointing. The chairs were very very fragile and and umbrella stuck in a cone took off and smashed a glass on a table and it was extremely fortunate an elderly lady sitting near was not hit. Everything else was up to the usual J.Foxes high standard.
