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.

    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

    Beautiful surroundings Staff were friendly and helpful . Food was amazing . 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.

    Fabulous young girl (from Donegal) looked after us. Lobster was delicious, Caesar salad stunning! Perhaps wine a bit pricey… only had a glass each. But enjoyed the experience.

    It was my husbands birthday and I wanted to make it special given his last two were in lockdown. We were not disappointed. He’s coeliac and it was easy to get GF options on the menu and also to get some adapted. The wine list is good too. All in all a lovely experience.

    Outstanding menu, my son loved the muscles and the hake, I had probably the best rissotto ever plus an amazing strawberries and zabaglione dessert. My husband loved his roast beef with Yorkshire pudding the size of Yorkshire. Beautiful.
