Food was very nice. However, last year the food was wonderful, this time I was disappointed. The food was worth the money, but there was no comparison to our meal last year. We raved about the tastes, the experience, told people it was a mini version of Neven Maguire's. Now I'll say The Fatted Calf is nice. We were sorry we hadn't booked the Corner House, Wineport or Nine Arches again. Meringue was tasteless and textureless, strawberrys were sour, it didn't work. Some of the food was great but the high quality food experience I expected (and you had last year and in Glasson) was missing. Service was excellent.

We only wish we could return sooner, but it's a long way for us across the Atlantic Ocean to get to The Fatted Calf. Looking forward to another great meal there some day soon.

Thank you for your review, we are delighted that you enjoyed your food and on the night of your visit, it was very busy, with lots of people celebrating and enjoying themselves and it can get a little noisy. We are addressing the issue.

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.
