I like eating here while staying at hotel but find the food a bit below par compared to other restaurants in the area. Myself and my husband both ordered duck and the skin was very rubbery and not at all crispy . My goats cheese starter had whole walnuts just thrown on the plate, a little creativity with the garnish and presentation would go a long way. We ordered a bottle of white wine and it still hadn’t arrived when our starters were on the table . I had to remind one of the staff and when it finally came the wine was not very chilled and was just left on the table without a chiller / bucket to get even less cold . I just asked for a glass of ice then to cool it down . There is a nice buzz and the young staff are very friendly but lots of little things let this restaurant down.

Had a lovely time 2 people really stood out from the bar and that was Kristian and Clive. They were very chatty and professional. The food in the restaurant was superb and I wouldn't be able to find a fault in anything. They also did a birthday plate for my partner which was really nice of them.

Dined in Setanta both evenings of our stay and couldn't fault one aspect. Food arrived quickly and was delicious and hot. The staff were very welcoming and although they were busy they were on the ball. The staff were so attentive throughout each meal. Would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful restaurant.

We had a lovely meal in the Setanta restaurant. It was our 20th wedding anniversary and the staff made it very special with a complimentary glass of prosecco to start and a beautifully presented plate with delicious chocolates after the meal. Service was excellent, food was delicious and presented beautifully especially the meringue dessert. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Margaret and all the staff were so friendly and very efficient. I requested certain dishes which were presented perfectly and tasted amazing. Many thanks to Peter, Mark and all the kitchen staff for the beautiful food. It was our wedding anniversary and we were presented with a plate of delicious chocolates and strawberries which was a lovely gesture and was very much appreciated. Looking forward to our next visit.
