Fabulous meal to celebrate my Birthday on Saturday - service was amazing!
This was our second time dining in The Fatted Calf and it didn’t fail to deliver. The food was top class. The restaurant was very busy and as we were sitting near a large group we were kindly moved by the maitre d to another table after our food. Unfortunately it was very chilly at this new table. When booking again we will ask for a table at the top end of the restaurant. Looking forward to our return visit.
The restaurant was bustling but the service was great, we weren't rushed or kept waiting. The food was so nice, with eight of us in the party each of us ordered different dishes and nobody was disappointed and this in itself is no mean feat as we all love our food and have no problem critiquing! My only slight gripe would be €14.50 for the starter from the specials which was seared king scallops, they were absolutely delicious but sadly there was only 2 of them, 3 at least would have satisfied otherwise couldn't fault the place. Would definitely recommend :)
I have to say the food was fantastic from both a quality and taste standpoint. One of the best lunches I have ever had. I would recommend anyone to visit. I will definitely be back in the future even though I live in Dublin !
The service was very bad she wasnt a very nice person that was servicing us. Our bread was burn't I wouldn't be back here again.

The Fatted Calf is one of the best restaurants I have ever visited. Lovely food and a quiet romantic atmosphere.
I have eaten in The Fatted Calf many times and it is always exceptional. I have had lunch on most occasions and dinner once. The menu is varied and changes often and the food is always of a very high quality and well presented. The staff are always welcoming, helpful and friendly. I have recommended it to many family and friends and will continue to do so after yesterday's delicious lunch.
