Very disappointed with the meal I had. Ordered scampi and big balls of batter came out with a tiny shrimp inside. It was basically all batter. My husbands burger was good.

Disappointed. Service was very slow not only for our table, other tables were the same. We ordered some different tapas dishes. The goats cheese bon bons, portion of 3 were each the size of cherry tomatoes, 1 piece of beetroot, 2 pieces of pear and lots of rocket leaves. A rip of for €9. Wouldn't go back.

Excellent service food was not that nice. Scampi were soggy, salad wasn't nice and chips were cold. Brownie was rock solid, cold and could not cut it, should of been warmed up. Felt frozen.

The cosy and warm yet bright design of this branch of GFP belies a problem that unfortunately afflicts many of their locations; Gourmet by name doesn't describe the food by any measure.
While the menu is enticing if not groundbreaking, Huevos Rancheros, Farmhouse breakfast, American pancakes, the food quality is very hit and miss. The Farmhouse Breakfast is good, nice flavours, great sausages but let down by too lightly cooked toast, bland back bacon (learn something breakfast places everywhere... bacon is bad for you, when we want it we want it with flavour, streaky is the way to go and please, don't oven cook, its a cardinal sin!) scabbled eggs straight out of the microwave. It's a good a dish as any to highlight the basic problem with Gourmet Food Parlour and that's that they don't know how to deliver good quality and consistent plates of food. There's a correlation with how busy they are, food and staff appear rushed and service that started sweetly and welcoming quickly becomes surely and lacking attention. If I was going to apply my experience to the situation I'd suggest they have a people management problem that goes right to the top of the business or at best, the operators at location level don't truly get service and quality. Shame, once upon a time, GFP was a great foodie location, unfortunately now it's mediocre food in a nice location.

I regularly visit Gourmet Food Parlour with my daughters and their families, when my son and family visit from Bristol we dine with you also, we were there with him for brunch on Sunday and enjoyed it thoroughly. There is a family connection also as it was originally the family home of my uncle I remember visiting it as a child on our holidays in Skerries many moons ago.

Wasn't impressed, the food wasn't as good as other GFP and we were overcharged which was corrected after we pointed it out. It wasn't all that busy but a long time between courses and sparkling water as forgotten we had to remind the server at the main course.

My husband ordeeed meatballs and they were raw in middle. Staff were very good and brought out a new portion. They were tough and grizzly. Sauce was beautiful but meal was ruined for him. His curry was ok. My food was lovely and kids food was good too but they ordered rockey road for desert and they were so hard we even had trouble biting them and really struggled to cut them.

Food was lovely. The burgers were huge and the chicken wings we unreal. Best we had in ages.
Found the goats cheese salad small. More of a starter than a main.

Found the baby changing area very good.

The ladies who served us were so nice and friendly.

Overall we really enjoyed our time there. Will be returning and recommending to friends and family.

Thanks
