GFP was extremely disappointing. The chicken quesadillas were cold when they came out. My partner had a steak sandwich which he couldn't chew it was full of grizzle & he also asked for it to be med-well done and it came out mooing at him!

Went here with my friend for a late breakfast. Though the staff was friendly, the service great and the ambiance was pleasant I did find it incredibly noisy and somewhat cramped. The food or what I had in my opinion was overpriced- €9 for 3 bits of avocado on toast is a bit steep to say the least. My friend on the other hand had a great meal and seemed satisfied.

We were within earshot of a chef shouting at what looked like a manager, very unprofessional on the chef, the manager came out and went about her job as if nothing had happened despite the manner in which she had just been spoken to

Had brunch with an old friend, we were upstairs which was very nice. It was my friends first visit and she enjoyed it. Only problem I had was there were a couple of young families up there so a bit noisy and one child kept walking around. Not something you can really manage 😊

Amazing service but the surroundings could do with a bit of work.

We were seated on the top floor on Valentines evening. I booked a table for two stating in the comment that I'd like it to be private since we're on a date. We were seated in a corner on a big round table for 4..
It was right next to a chatty couple that were too loud and the tables were too close together. It was really awkward!
What totally ruined the mood was no flowers anywhere on the tables. It was Valentines and not a single rose was in the entire room. I would've been happy with fake ones.
Tables were just plain with no cloth on and with old looking cutlery on them. It felt like we were in a public kitchen.
We ordered drinks - 2 pina coladas. I can't say I liked them since fruit could be barely tasted and they were mostly alcohol. They are supposed to be opposite - fruity drinks with a faint taste of alcohol.
Food was great but portions could be at least 1/3 smaller. We couldn't finish all.
Service was excellent and friendly. Girls were experienced in their work and fast.

Reason for 2 stars for service is it took long for our order to be taken.After trying to attract the attention of one of the staff we eventually had to get up and go ask them to take our order - this was at least 20 mins after we had arrived. For those of us who were working it took away from the experience as we were under pressure then to leave.

Food was great as always. Place is very understaffed and as a result service was very slow. I had to call someone after 20 minutes of being seated to take our order. That is my only hangup. Needs more staff.

I’ve only been to the GFP for lunch and brunch so this was my first time to have dinner there. I thought the food was disappointing. Vegan curry was like soup on rice, thin soup at that. No pulses, mushrooms, very few peppers. It was rather oily too. Dessert was a huge disappointment. It was bought in apple crumble which was heated in a microwave. You know when you get that soggy pastry and the crumble had lost the meaning of crumbly.... more like stodgy. I won’t be back for dinner. Our waiter was a very nice guy, so gets four stars. I grudgingly give two stars for food.

I’ve been here a few times now for breakfast lunch and dinner...I always find that there is not enough staff members taking orders etc for how busy the restaurant is. You have to wait way too long after being seated to be even offered a drink while you look over the menu. Food is amazing and although rushed off there feet the staff are always very polite and accommodating.

Food can be hit and miss - Falafels are a waste of money and look a mess on the plate, whereas the Surf & Turf special I had was fabulous, and great value for money. Service can be a bit slow at times. My colleagues and I eat there regularly, the staff are pleasant enough, but can be a bit robotic with service, some staff not knowing that a toasted sandwich on the menu, should actually be toasted.

Had a reservation and we were seated at a lovely table straight away although it was extremely busy! Service was good, although there was a long wait for our brunch we didn't mind as it gave us time to catch up. Food was cold to be honest and the portion was smaller than my other times here but all in all very happy, it was so busy and we were so hungry we did not say anything about food being cold. We also had a cocktail and mocktail after our food which were really lovely. Will be back very soon! Always recommend to make a reservation as the place is always so busy!
