I ordered a Club Sandwich which was presented in a roll and not toasted. So very much not resembling a club sandwich.

My friends sandwich looked pretty miserable too.

Both served with a spoon of what i think was potato salad.

Opted for some cake afterwards which was fine.

Really poor experience in GFP. I understand business are under pressure with current Covid restrictions however that shouldn’t compromise food quality. GFP have obviously made a lot of their food in advance so it’s only a quick heat up to keep tables turning over. The food was truly awful, obviously reheated and just soggy. Go elsewhere!!

This was my first time dining here, the food was great, the wait staff were good considering the circumstances but the lady greeting us at the door and when we left was not particularly nice. Each of us in the group felt the same and that she was quite ebrupt and as if our presence annoyed her. Maybe it is because it was a busy sunday or because of Covid mask restrictions but at the end of the day a genuine nice welcome and goodbye leaves a lasting impression and because i felt our custom was not appretiated i would hesitate to book again. The food was great though and the it is a lovely restaurant.

I visited your restaurant yesterday with my family. The food was great but a lady/member of staff was very rude to us.
We did arrive approx 20-25 mins late for our booking. Upon arrival I apologised for being late and advised that we tried to call the restaurant 2 or 3 times but it rang out and there was no answer. The lady suggested that if we had of called that they would have answered. It felt as if she was calling me a liar and that I never tried to call. We eventually got to sit down at our table. We thoroughly enjoyed the food but felt very annoyed at how we were treated by the member of staff and left a bad feeling about our visit.
Kind Regards,
Jacob.

Me and my partner order the steak sandwich and the beef burger off the brunch menu. Really enjoyed my burger. My partner's steak sandwich was disappointing the onions quite dry. Service unfortunately was poor. It took a long time to catch someones attention for salt. We were asked did we want dessert or teas/ coffees after, we said we would look at the menu. We had decided what we were going to have but no one came back to use for 20 mins so the mood was gone off us. We asked for the bill instead and waiting another 15-20mins for this, no exaggeration. Unfortunately it was my partner's first time here so the poor service is his only impression of the place.

GFP Dun Laoghaire had our order ready on arrival as we had pre-ordered our meal due to lunch time time constraints. Food was delicious and the service was good. My friend commented to me the service staff could have been a bit more engaged with us, eg asking us how our meal was, etc. We understand that the staff are probably just back from the restaurant being closed for weeks due to lockdown. Otherwise, everything was good and meal was good value for money.

Tables were not 1 meter apart and we were not encouraged to use hand sanitizer on arrival. Disappointed in the social distancing aspects. The host did not show us to our table. Service was ok. The steak sambo was nice but two friends ordered quesadilla and only ate half each- both agreed was not nice and unusual texture. Dessert was nice. House wine was over priced.

I am disappointed to read your feedback. All of our tables are at least one metre apart or we have perspex partitions between tables. We have contactless hand sanitiser dispensers at the front door & pump bottles in all bathrooms, welcome station and bar counter. Our quesadillas have been our number one best sellers across all menus for 14 years, I wish you had highlighted this on the day as we would've replaced them for you. I hope we can welcome you back soon to show you a true GFP experience.
