Can't recommend the place enough, Sunday lunch is fantastic and santa Claus was a great idea
Varied choices and good tasting food. Staff friendly and efficient.
Great night in River Restaurant
The food and service was excellent on Saturday night but my god the fresh cream cake was to die for. Breaks between each course was also well planned. I would definitely recommend the restaurant as a choice for a family occassion. One note is to make sure to valid your parking tickets when arriving and leaving. I
Had a great night the meal was lovely & the staff were all very friendly & helpful i would go back again.

Beautiful meal thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. I would highly recommend River Restaurant. The service was wonderful and the waiter who looked after us could not have been more helpful. We will be back!
very helpful over the phone.
would eat here again, and have recommended to others with no worries
Great selection, well presented.
Excellent food and excellent service very friendly and welcoming
Great Sunday lunch. A place to take visitors to. Friendly staff; good selection of food. Highly recommend.
Excellent buffet. Took us quite by surprise. Excellent fish, not overdone, beef really tender, variety of entrees.. Desserts likewise - abundant, various, and flavourful. Waiter so friendly and vigilant. We will definitely visit you again before too long.
Food is really good. There was a young man looking after us at the table and he was excellent making sure we had water and even changing a place setting when we spilt drink. Prosecco is a lovely touch. Some music would be nice.
Beautiful food, lovely staff, wonderful location and atmosphere. Just wish I had an even bigger appetite!!
The food was great....however we were attending as a communion party and it was 1 1/2 hours after we were seated before we received our starters. The kids were hungry so they made a start on the buffet which meant the were finished ages before us and became bored. There was also supposes to be a magician present in the day...but there was nnothing sign during our sitting.
Thank you for the fantastic evening! I and my husband really enjoyed our dinner in the restaurant. Food was delicious! The steak was one of the best we ever had! And, of course, delicious deserts! The young man that served us was very professional and polite. He was always near, but not annoying. Restaurant has very nicevand relaxing design, and beautiful view on river Shannon. This was our second time there, and we will definitely be back!
We had booked dinner for a group of 12 but needed to increase this to 18 at the last minute...! The staff could not have been more accommodating, Vicky was a delight to deal with. The staff who looked after us in the restaurant were efficient, well trained and good humoured. The menu was varied and food was tasty. All in all a good experience which I have no hesitation in recommending.
Excellent value and service
This is my second time at the River Restaurant for Sunday Lunch. I highly recommend it as a family occasion when dining out for Lunch on a Sunday afternoon.
Good food and wine at an affordable price in an elegant setting. The servise was great, very professional.
