Hi guys, McSwiggins has always been a firm favourite of ours, we have had countless gorgeous meals and occasions there, but I was bitterly disappointed with my meal yesterday. The starter was nice, wild mushrooms, but my main was very disappointing, the portion of chips for the table were green, I understand potatoes are natural and green spuds exist sometimes but you'd hope the chef would notice, my mash was very cold when it came out, I told the waiter (who was lovely) and when he returned my mash was like lava, it was clearly nuked to death and tasted as such. I am a big fan of fresh veg and I was also disappointed here, the sugarsnap peas and baby kale (the latter is a guess) are not seasonal veg as the menu suggested and they were not great, I was expecting proper hearty vegetables. I know we are in a pandemic and businesses are really struggling but this was out first meal out in 2020 and I was so disappointed. The absence of McSwiggans fantastic garlic potatoes was sorely felt too. My husband had steak and chips and he loved his, said it was the best steak he had had in years. I had the Kiev and it was very salty. I'm honestly not a fussy complainer, I never send food back but I had to last night, cold mash is just not edible. I'm sorry to sound so negative but I said to my husband as we left, I think I'm done with McSwiggins. We paid €92 for 2 courses and 2 drinks each (just diet Cokes for me), plus €10 tip extra and it wasn't worth it for me. Sorry

Great food & The overall experience was good . Small constructive criticism is that the waiters more or less threw the food in the table , he actually handed me the plate to hand to my son , instead of just walking around to him & placing it down , very little eye contact too so more engagement would be nice . Otherwise all good & service very fast. Also lots of room so felt very safe .

An extremely disappointing food experience. Definitely not what we are used to at Mc Swiggians. Service was excellent however the food was poor to say the least.

We were in on Saturday night and we’ve been raving about it since. Have been going to McSwiggans for years but the changed menu was absolutely delicious. We were a party of 6 and my parents hadn’t been out for a meal in months due to lockdowns etc and they enjoyed every minute of it. A huge part of this was the service provided by Dave who was both an excellent server but also kept them laughing all night and I can’t thank him enough for that. An excellent night and we’ll definitely be coming back again soon.
