    Father's day brunch with my dad and two of my daughters. We were greeted and led to our table and our orders taken efficiently and in a friendly manner. I could see that some of the staff are learning or less experienced - so the waitress didn't know one breakfast from the other and handed out the wrong ones - easily corrected. They had to be asked a few times for water on the table. But, these are very minor issues- the staff were friendly and the food was good, in a nice location. I was happy.

    Good afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback and we really do appreciate your patience and understanding as we train in new waitresses. Staff shortages have been a huge issue over the last year and we are very glad to hear understanding feedback. These issues will no longer be an issue going forward as our team is now trained up and ready to go. We hope to see you again soon. Team GFP

    Serving staff very friendly, but a very erratic service. Limited menu on a Sunday, with some of the basics not available. This was our last visit here, our last 2 visits were for take away, the 1st time the order was wrong, the 2nd time the food was cold. I did email them regarding the cold food, but received no response. 3 strikes and they are out.

    Gourmet Food Parlour - SwordsResponded on June 14, 2022

    Good afternoon Dave, We're very sorry to here you experienced, as you describe, "erratic" service. We also apologize that you didn't receive a response when you reached out to us.

    We both had buttermilk chicken eggs benedict which was completely tasteless, the chick was supposed to be buttermilk but was more like a crispy chicken steak, not at all like buttermilk chicken I've had anywhere else. Very disappointed as there was no flavor from the chicken or the hollandaise sauce.

    While the food was delicious the background music was very loud. There was three of us and at times we found it hard to hear each other. I have eaten there at night time on other occasions and the music was not that loud. However it won't stop me booking again as overall each visit has been enjoyable.

    Cocktails didn't have any flavour. The lamb was disappointing. Coffee not great either. We planned to get desserts but didn't after the main as it didn't make us excited to order more. I expected better for the price. The restaurant interior is nice.

    Second time trying GFP in swords and honestly was disappointed again. Nobody checked with us after we got our food, had to ask a second time for drinks we’d ordered and nobody asked us if we wanted desserts or drinks. In the end we got fed up waiting and asked for the bill.
