Thank you Nicola for your fantastic review! We look forward to seeing you again, from all at The Fatted Calf.
Wonderful place with lovely staff & gorgeous food. Lovely atmosphere even with the Covid weirdness. Great to see lots of Irish & local produce & the sourcing. Will definitely be back
Thank you for your amazing review Michelle, we look forward to seeing you again, from all of us at The Fatted Calf.
First time here and we really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The staff were very professional. Definitely will be back soon!
Really bad food , the chicken was burnt and had no flavour , also the wild rice was very salty and not cooked at all , overall the food was bland and salty , the butternut squash purè was good though.
Thank you for your feedback, however, we feel that if there was an issue with your meal, you could have told us when we checked during your meal, and we would have changed it for something else.
Always a great meal
Thanks Niall, we look forward to seeing you all again!
Fabulous food and cocktails. Very friendly and helpful staff.
We enjoyed a lovely lunch With great food. Staff were as always very professional and attentive. The facilities were mindful of social distancing and all measures were in place. We felt very assured that public health and safety Measures were in place. Thank you
Excellent quality food and a great alternative to eating in local hotels! Fantastic service and a great selection of dishes on the menu.
Could not fault your place. Waiters were very nice & respectful, wore masks but could tell they were always smiling. Atmosphere was lovely & decor was cool. Just perfect for a girly catch up over dinner. Would’ve loved one or two more sweeter cocktail options, just as it would be the perfect addition for a girly treat! But overall had a fantastic time. Also the doughnuts were yum!
