    Overall the experience was good. The staff were lovely, food was very good. There was a time delay, but this was partially due to the fact we weren't ordering starters, with our meal. I would recommend 'The Red Bank' to a friend, as food and staff were lovely.

    Sunday lunch at the Red Bank Restaurant was amazing. We had the table outdoor in the Secret Garden, it was full of people but quiet. Lovely starters (salmon with vodka creme fraiche and pig and peach salad) followed by the 12 hours braised beef with polenta and mushroom sauce. The beef was melting in the mouth, amazing ! Service was very nice but a little slow.

    Vegan options available but you had to ask for a special menu. Starters were great and cocktail was nice. Mains were not the best. The wild mushroom linguine was extremely oily and heavy. I left more than half of the plate. Way too fat. Desert was very nice. Service was very good for the exception of not being asked a single time how the starter/main/desert was. Door wide open to the back which made it quite chilly, not very nice.

    We had dinner in the Red Bank Restaurant in Carrick-on-Shannon last Saturday night. It was a very wet rainy night and the staff had to cross to the gorgeous covered in area constantly but they were so good humoured and helpful - very admirable. The food and cocktails were first class, as is the gorgeous covered in external area which has a huge tree in the centre which is covered in flowers and lights - really atmospheric. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

    We have eaten at the Red Bank Restaurant before, and always found it to be exceptional in every way. Last night was super, the food was superb, It was one of our sons birthday and they brought his dessert out with a candle. The staff were exceptional. Highly recommended this top class Restaurant.

    Highly recommend The Red Bank, we were visiting Carrick for a Saturday wedding and decided to book something for the Friday evening, we were not disappointed. Some of the best food I have had in a long time. Scallops were outstanding, my wife had the Lemon Sole with Clams which was delicious and I had the braised beef which just melted in the mouth. Very reasonably priced for the quality of food and service, loved the background music soundtrack too. This is a must place to eat if you are coming to the area.

    On a recent trip to Carrick on Shannon we were lucky to book The Red Bank Restaurant....there is a wonderful menu on offer and the food while both hot and tasty was well presented and pleasing to the eye. The chowder is amazing!! Give it a go....you won't be disappointed.

    Excellent food and surroundings. Solid wine list (a nice Amarone). 2 small gripes, no one asked if we would like coffee after the desert plates were cleared and had to ask for it after 15 mins. Also, when booking on OpenTable, I indicated it was a Birthday occasion and despite other parties receiving a rendition of Happy Birthday and a special desert for the person in the party whose Birthday it was, we were not as lucky.

    I had the pleasure of dining at the OpenTable restaurant recently with a group of seven. From start to finish everything wad superb. The food is absolutely amazing ,everyone had different meals but each dish was delicious. We indulged in a few cocktails also and they were presented and tasted top class. Catherine was our waitress for the night and she couldn't have been more helpful. So I would definitely recommend a visit to the OpenTable as I will be revisiting as soon as possible.

    After a wonderful first visit with my husband a few weeks ago brought my daughter this time. Was not as good this time around. The staff were excellent, can not fault them. We did not order a starter went straight for burgers as main but it took about 45 minutes to get them. This was a little too long of a wait. We did get a small espresso cup of complimentary soup after about 30 mins. Then my burger was a little burnt around the edges. Again the staff were great and my first visit was excellent so putting it down to a bad night in the kitchen.

    Service was very slow, waiting a 1hr 15 mins for starter. Had to ask for menus. Large party across from us that were very loud, couldn’t hear each other talking. Waitress spilt the water twice and never cleaned up. Have been to the restaurant several times and first time having a bad experience.
