My family and I went to Ladybird for my birthday dinner last night and it was AWESOME!
We were a few minutes late and when I called to advise them, Corey was lovely and said they were waiting for us no problem. On arrival Corey happily took a family snap for us before we went in. Our table was inside but with a view, as requested, which made for a beautiful setting.
Our waiter (sorry I do not remember his name) was fantastic! He was friendly, professional, attentive, funny and helpful re menu questions. Loved him!
And the food, sooooo good! We had a variety of Starter/Share plates and each one of them was so tasty. Mum and I shared 6 Kilpatrick Oysters, very different to any I had eaten before, but also delicious! We had a wide variety of mains between us all and, you guessed it, each one of them was absolutely delicious!! (Yes, I literally did try each one of them).
In summary, will definitely be going again, would highly recommend Ladybird if you are after great, reasonably priced food in a beautiful setting.

Service was at times embarrassing compared with previous experiences. You were busy but after 20 minutes we still didn’t have any drink orders taken so had to approach waiter. Half the drinks arrived but Then waited about an hour for other drinks to arrive. Very inattentive and we needed to constantly ask for everything. Drinks sat up on the bar for a while and we nearly got up to get them ourselves

Restaurant was exceptionally busy, had to wait about 40 minutes past reservation time to be seated but table was amazing overlooking water so not a great problem. Service initially great but ironically as the restaurant emptied service declined. After asking for water and waiting 20 minutes had to get up and help myself. Was looking forward to dessert but by the time we saw the waiter again we had lost interest. Beautiful venue, food good but not outstanding. Let down by service.

Want to make a special mention to the two wait staff that looked after us. They were incredible. We had a little one with us which can be quite stressful. The two went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and our 10mo was entertained

I would definitely recommend! The food was delicious and loved the fitout of the restaurant and dining location on the water. The cocktails looked beautiful but we were disappointed with the taste of 2 of the ones we ordered. However, there is an extensive cocktail menu which was great. I will definitely be back as overall it was a beautiful experience and the food was delicious.

We were nervous about dining with toddlers but we were made to feel so welcome and were treated with such friendliness and caring all evening. Add to this the amazing food and it was a recipe for a wonderful evening. We will be back and we’ll be telling our friends what a wonderful place this is to dine.
