We travelled from gakway, Longford, Dublin and Mayo to meet and celebrate our birthdays and it was so worth the journey. Food was fabulous as was the service and waiters knowledge and recommendation of the wine! Hopefully get to go again soon!

We had an amazing experience in The Fatted Calf. The food speaks for itself and the service was perfect. It was lovely to have a drink from the extensive bar menu in the relaxed atmosphere before our meal. We will definitely be back.

Great night in your restaurant, even better that we could go back to our hotel through ' the secret passage'!!! My very particular friend thought the menu was slightly limited, but myself & my other friend enjoyed very much. Thank you.

My partned and I had a wonderful meal in the Fatted Calf last Saturday. We went for the Early Bird. My starter of Mussels was really tasty while my partner reported his black pudding and mushroom were scrumptous. Equally our main courses of Fish Pie and Chicken were delicious. We choose a South African red wine which was a gem and which the waitress very kindly decanted. Service was excellent. I felt the cost of the meal was very good value, as we have often eaten in restaurants in Dublin, paying higher prices for less good quality food. We will definitely return. Well done.

The staff could not have been more accommodating.They replaced two of the parties dinners as they were gone cold while they were changing their children.We only asked for it to be kept warm.They were so nice,welcoming and accommodating.The food was to die for!only recommendation would that the portions were a tiny bit on small side but so delicious!

The decor & tables could have been more Christmassy . where my partner Lynn was sat was in a draft from people in & out of the toilets but as she is not one to complain we just swapped seats. Excellent food & service as always
