Irish
Classic Irish cuisine from chef Sean Smith in the Kildare countryside.

Sean’s mouth-watering new menu is as always sourced locally with some ingredients even grown on the very grounds of the Cliff at Lyons Estate. Food lovers will enjoy classics such as Roast Rib of Beef, Cherry Valley Duck Breast and Oven Baked Baby Turbot with sides of seasonal vegetables, mini Seafood platters and of course for something a bit sweet, Whiskey & Orange Ice Cream or Chocolate Fondant with Salted Caramel Ice Cream.

The Mill restaurant is the heart of Cliff at Lyons, with huge double-height ceilings, warm open fire and windows that open up to a terrace beside the mill race and waterfall. Here, you will find a relaxed style of dining where it is easy to enjoy a lunch or dinner with friends or family. The illuminated waterfall provides a unique back drop to this airy and spacious room.

    Overall a very nice experience. The food was good but the beef filet was overcooked. Three people at our table had the beef and all were overcooked. It seemed strange as someone else at our table had venison and it was cooked perfectly. Everything else was great though. Very nice cocktails too!

    Lunch was served in the Lounge area, which was a tad gloomy. The choice was adequate, the prices hard to justify. The Fish & Chips @ €20 were fine but the Burrata @ €15 was just a round of mozzarella on an otherwise empty plate (bar a few scattered capers and nuts). No salad to accompany it. A tomato salad was ordered to compensate @ €5, which consisted solely of a couple of sliced tomatoes tossed in oil. Again, not a salad leaf in sight. Desserts were €9 (incl Ice Cream Selection). Our coffees came in small cups, not fully filled. Everything was fresh and tasted good, the young people serving were friendly and helpful, but most fare was, in our view, over-priced. Love the estate and the wonderful canal walk but will stick to the charming Pantry in future for our lunch-time delights.

    We were very happy with the food and service but we had two issues that took away from our experience. The first was we were seated near the stairs and two children kept running up and down the stairs and sometimes jumping down and landing close to us. The staff could have spoken nicely to the carers of them. The second issue, our meal was to celebrate my birthday and my wife had asked a member of staff to do a little "Happy Birthday" surprise with a candle at dessert time. During the meal she secretly reminded another member and they said no problem we know. Dessert and coffee came and went with no surprise so we just paid and left.

    First time back in two years. Fab food, shared the fish platter to start, gorgeous guinness bread fresh from the oven. Had the mushroom pasta also, piping hot and fresh, creamy with a mix of mushrooms. Booked 30 minutes before arriving, we we only one of two tables on the saturday at 1pm so the atmosphere was quiet. I dont remember any background music but love sitting in the original glass conservatory. The only downside was a scent when you first walked in, i think it was mouldy figs on the vines. Fab as always though.

    Delicious food served in a wonderfully restored mill, excellent friendly and helpful staff. We found the menu slightly limited as there were 3 fish mains and my wife doesn’t eat fish. But what we chose from the menu was delicious. Cheese trolley selection was fabulous

    Our first impression was somewhat tainted by the fact that there was no Rose wine available on the afternoon of our arrival ( on what was a very sunny afternoon). That evening, there was also no Sauvignon wine by the glass available. It had also run out. I had Lobster which was quite bland ( yet expensive) . Our final observation was that the staff were very young and inexperienced in the restaurant with no visible senior oversight.

    Service was rubbish, restaurant was not busy as we were on the last sitting. had to ask repeatedly for water, waited ages for drinks, side order & knife. Food was overpriced for what it was, standard burger with chips but no salad or any garnish was €16. then overcharged €13 on bottle of house wine, which when queried was immediately corrected without a reasonable explanation. ("Server is away with the fairies"). Not the service I expected

We booked online an within the hr we got follow up call explained we needed dairy free desert and what we got on the day was excellent . Only thing is would like to see some vegan options on the menu to cater for all but I'm sure if had asked would have been provided one

    Very disappointing, my friend is vegetarian and I had requested vegetarian menu when making booking. There was one main course option available and that was it. Ordered the fish dish with pasta and asked for no fish to be served. Paid €37 for a linguini.
