Thank you all for a very enjoyable evening, the food, service and attention to detail was excellent. I would in particular like to praise the waitress who served us our meal, unfortunately I cannot remember her name Ingrid?? she was so pleasant and absolutely nothing was a problem for her. Many thanks indeed. Caroline Burke

Wow, that is all I can say - my expectations were well and truly exceeded!! The last time I ate in what was the Osbourne Restaurant, the food and service left a lot to be desired so I was unsure of what to expect this time in the relatively new named 'The 1780'. However, on this occasion Derek Yu and his team provided my dinner party with an exceptional client experience which we are all still raving about - thank you and much appreciated, Bertrand

Enjoyed my time immensely. All staff members were so helpful & professional. Had a fantastic treatment at the spa, beautiful dinner in 1780 restaurant and topped off with waking up to an amazing sea view in the morning. Fabulous hotel would highly recommend.

a gang of 27 of us in total stayed in the hotel at xmas. We found the food nice with good range of choice. Because it was the festive season we found the bar lacked ambience on Christmas night. Even piped music could have livened up the place. Have stayed in places at Christmas time where entertainment is provided. That would be the only flaw with returning again next year.

Halibut was bland, couldnt taste any seasoning at all. Beef wellington and duck/foie gras ballintine was really taste. Desserts were a good effort but didnt deliever the wow factor. Overall the dishes were just average/flavourless. The experience was a let down due to this because we had huge expectations from the pictures of the website. We felt robbed after the meal

We had a large table of 16 people. It was one of the most awful restaurant experiences I have had. When we arrived our party were on 3 different tables which was not mentioned to be at the time of the booking. There was a lot of confusion before the situation was rectified. But the most disappointing was the food - it was barely edible. The starters were luke warm, tasteless and just not up to standard. For €38 per head for a lunch menu, I would expect a very high standard of food. The turkey and ham was tasteless and lacked any flavour and barely enough portions for one person, I personally had the beef dish and it was just an awful cut of meat- very fatty, the sauce was far too strong and over bearing and again barely warm. The 2 guests that had the hake enjoyed it. The childrens goujons were not fresh and tasted like frozen supermarket goods. It was very disappointing. We had a large family reunion with family home from abroad and it was ruined by the under-performance of your kitchen We are locals but will not be returning to your restaurant nor would be recommend you. We spent almost €1000 in your hotel- a disgraceful amount of money for what we were served.

What a lovely dining experience we had in the 1780 restaurant after a most disappointing dining experience in the Jamison bar the previous evening. Our meals were simply fabulous and so was the service, unlike our first evening. The food was cold, served on a freezing plate and even the 'warm apple sponge' was served cold. The red wine must have came straight from the cellar - yes it was cold too. Need a manager in the Jamison bar!!!

This was my third time to dine here and once again I came away extremely impressed. The service team are top class, being professional yet relaxed and friendly with great knowledge of the menu which they are happy to discuss. The food is simply exquisite, from the lovely breads, the creative amuse bouche through to the desserts (which are irresistible)-every course was a delight. I have seen a good range of the dishes at this stage and everyone of them is so well presented and tasty. I would definitely say this is the best hotel restaurant I have ever eaten in. Thanks to all at 1780 for another fantastic meal

Previous offer was better when there was only one menu with all of the best choices and included coffee. It does not seem as special an experience when choosing from a set menu beside an a la carte with some superior dishes.

Restaurant staff were particularly nice catering for 1 pregnant woman, one veggie, and one who's alergic to shellfish, offering alternatives and tasters. We really felt very special and all our needs looked after.
