Having some buns or rolls to make your own meat sandwiches would be a nice touch.

Food was great but too expensive. By comparison a 3 course dinner in Host, Ranelagh is €38. I think as a €40 set menu this wasn't comparable value.

Lads this was a brilliant set up and brilliant evening! My feedback would be some alternative sides or to choose sides as a lot of waste on our table as well as that slightly smaller portion sizes! Great bringing food home but it was just too much for us.

Unfortunately the Irish weather went against us and it poured rain, even sitting under umbrellas didn't dampen the spirits! We asked could we possibly get our food as take out and were told of course, no hesitation. The food was really good and the staff were some of the nicest, friendliest and most accomodating I have ever met. I will be re-booking another night as soon as the winter cover comes in!!

We got about 1 hour's warning before the booking was due to start that it was being cancelled due to weather and not having all-weather covering. I get that no-one controls the weather but waiting until the evening itself to let people know that's it's good weather or not at all is transferring a lot of risk to the customer and caused a lot of last-minute scrambling in our case. This could have been solved by even an email earlier in the week letting people know the event is weather dependant and you don't currently have the covering to handle rain, and people could make appropriate back-up plans. The organisers mentioned they'll have all-weather coverings in two weeks which is obviously welcome but the manner in which they dealt with the lack of them in the meantime was definitely very messy.

We were served by three different people- maybe need to tighten up. There was a mix up and loads of tables got served before us, which meant we were waiting a long time for meat. The music and lights were good and staff were friendly. Didn’t think that a sharing plate of flatbreads was a good idea hygiene -wise. Salads were really tasty. Meat tasted great when it came, would have liked a bit more of it. Unisex Toilet was absolutely disgusting - no light, it was completely dark and I felt sorry for the staff who had to attempt to clean it at the end of the night. Whole experience was just ok.

Food and service excellent. Maybe a bit more cover from the elements and more sturdy benches with cushions or a cover as the benches were damp to sit on. However overall a lovely evening with great food and service

Liked the funky outdoor space and the free BYO was a great bonus! We were very happy with their covid-19 precautions-staff wore surgical masks, there was hand sanitiser at each table, and tables {ingeniously transformed wood palettes!!) were well spaced. Good atmosphere the Friday night we were there and staff were very friendly. The main BBQ meats course arrived in a cardboard box; we had booked the set 40 euro menu each which had far too much for 2, so ended up taking the doggy-box home with us! A quirky eating experience and recommended for rain-free evenings.

Our main course didn't arrive for 75 mins. Food was good but not great. BYO is nice but I'm not sure if we got €40 worth of food overall.

I was delighted to get out of the house last Saturday and staff were lovely, but I feel strongly we absolutely did not get enough food for four people for €120, the contents of that one box for four people was poor. Your competitors give a A Full Rack Of Ribs, whole Chicken, Pulled Pork, Wings, Brisket, Slaw, Mac N Cheese, Corn On Cob, Onion Rings And A Huge Helping of Dirty Fries for half that price. Disappointed, Fiona

We really enjoyed our experience, seemed to be quite hectic when we arrived as we were warned the kitchen was backed up and there was only 2 benches for us at our table. Despite this, 15 mins in they had sources another bench for us and our food had started to come out. Staff were really friendly and helpful and food was delish

Criminally overpriced. The owners are extremely greedy or deluded or both. You're paying nice restaurant prices to sit on unfathomably uncomfortable and awkward pallets in a car park and it goes quickly downhill from there. A 45c bottle of Tesco water is plonked on your table and you are thrown a series of meagre and underwhelming courses and sides in various cardboard and plastic containers (one plastic container had just 3 pickles in it for a table of 4). Some of the meat was ok but again meagre portions for what you're paying and really the bitter taste in my mouth from being ripped off the only lasting memory I'm left with.
