I notice a decrease in the quality of the food. I was always happy to order the burger but this time it was a big disappointment. However, the cocktails continue to be amazing.

Food was great. Loved the cocktails. Got the mega skillet for dessert to share and it was more than enough. Great service. Music was a bit loud but nothing bad to say about it

Great live show with Regis Milan. The vibe was absolutely incredible. Lucas (@pobrenairlanda) is the best host ever and food was fantastic. Can’t wait for more!

Very disappointing. No social distance between tables. Customers walking around trying to get staffs attention. Not all staff was wearing face mask and the majority of those who were had it around their chin. Que for the toilet and a que of people outside waiting to come in. It was VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. VERY DISAPPOINTING

Prices of food is outrageous got chicken Strips and chips and they were €16.95. That should cost no more than €13 and it said it would come with 3 different sauces but it only came with one.

We had rang ahead and asked to be sat beside our friends who had booked a table of 6 also, on the phone they said they could make it happen but when we arrived we were told no. The service was extremely slow waiting a food while before someone came to our table. The food was really good

The place was lovely but I feel like the Thunder road cafe over prices their desserts and dishes. Also think you guys should add more dishes to the menu too.

Booked a table for 9pm and were forced to wait outside on the street until 9:35. The food was okay but way overpriced. We were then told at 10:25 that it was the last order for drinks after only being there for 50 minutes. Would not recommend.

For the price of food this was honestly my top ten worst restaurants visited. The pizza was undercooked and everything fell when lifting. My partners ribs were rock hard she could not cut through them with a knife. We left with 70% of our food still remaining on the plate as it was inedible. Would not recommend
