My wife and I had a great meal, could not fault anything. We will return again if we stay in the hotel. My wife loved her steak and my fish was perfect.

We loved the touch of the teddy bears dotted around the various tables to help with social distancing, it was a great idea and much better than just a sign. We had to take some photos with them,nice touch.

A wonderful date night at a lovely establishment. We went for the set menu on a Sunday night and the quality/value for money was exceptional. The staff were very attentive and pleasant from start to finish. The food and wine was very good indeed. We will definitely return soon.

Both mains were very good but starter was awful. My wife had dessert which she said was excellent. However the 'americanos' were just plain filter coffee. They were charged as americanos. The Maitre D who took payment never bothered to ask how the meal was or reference the fact that we had to send one course back as inedible so I did not tip which is something I always do even if the food isn't great but service is good. I will not be back.

Very disappointed with this restaurant. Food was barely average. We felt the food was preprepared and was dry and bland. We were seated at 6 pm. And were finished at 640 pm. A very rushed meal. Not once did any member of staff asked if everything was OK wit the meal. We will not be going to to this restaurant again. The manager had no management skills whatsoever.

I have eaten here a few time. This time I was disappointed to be honest.
Drink orders had to be orders several times and had to remind staff. 3 times I order a drink for my toddler and it never arrived in the end. Our main course was meant to come with a side of celeriac purée and it was a scrap on the plate. Disappointed with that.
Choice of kiddies menu was very good. And kiddies food came really promptly. Kiddies desert was really good.
Service did not match up to cost of bill. Could of been a lot better.

Disappointing meal, and waiting staff , though extremely pleasant, were not very knowledgeable or informative regarding the menu . My main course which was the fish special (tuna) was completely tasteless. Another member of our party ordered veal, which came with no potatoes or veg, and we felt we should have been asked about sides when we ordered. We ended up having to order sides upon the arrival of our main courses, which obviously meant a bit of a wait, while our food went cold!
We feel this may just have been a slip in service due to the fact that it was Christmas.

We had a very disappointing main course. The steak was very tough and the cauliflower gratin was not a “gratin”, just cauliflower sitting in melted butter,

The staff and restaurant manager were very nice, the meal was the problem!

We visited Mapas on Saturday evening to check it out as we were hoping to book the restaurant to entertain some friends who are visiting with us soon.

We we're very disappointed with our dining experience at Mapas. The manager in charge come over to our table on a number of occasions and made numerous comments about the lack of alcohol on the table. The food itself was very disappointing it's more picture on a plate then taste and quality. Such a pity because we were looking forward to a nice family dinner.

Food was very tasty but the one and only complaint I had and had to send it back was my baked potato was frozen in the middle. I would understand if the restaurant was super busy but when I was there it was relatively quiet. The waitress did change it for me for champ which was delicious and very hot. She was very apologetic about the baked potato. I will definitely be back as menu is interesting and service is excellent

We had a fabulous night in the Mapas restaurant, everything from food to service was excellent, it was a great choice for a night out with friends, they’ve recently renovated the restaurant and introduced a new menu and every thing is presented beautifully. We can’t wait to go back.

The food and service were good. Unfortunately there was a large table directly behind us with at least 2 young children who either cried, screamed, or shouted most of the night. We were there at 7.30pm and left at 11pm. The noisy table were still there. If I was to recommend to a friend I would tell them to check if any kids booked in.

We had a lovely dinner for our first night in Ireland for our honeymoon dinner. Our attendant was very attentive and offered us complimentary Prosecco as a congratulatory celebration of our honeymoon. My wife had the chicken breast and bragged at how wonderful it was. I had the roast duck and was thoroughly amazed at how good it was. I honestly can’t give this restaurant enough praise and highly recommend it to anyone spending time near Dalkey. I would recommend making the short drive from Dublin to have a nice dinner here.

Hi,

Service was great and staff couldn’t have been nicer but I asked for a steak to be Medium and it was very over cooked with no pink in it.
We will try again but all down to the staff and not particularly the food, location and staff may bring us back.

Thanks

We were delighted to get a table for 7.30p.m.at short notice on November 16th. We were given menus fairly promptly and our order was taken for food and wine. I didn't have a starter but my husbands starter arrived without delay. By the time his starter was finished our drinks had still not arrived. Our main course eventually was served at 20.20 and still no sign of our drinks. We had to remind the girl who had taken the drinks order, who finally delivered the drinks. At last the table was cleared @ 21.00 and we ordered desert and coffee. Desert arrived shortly after but no coffee. When this had not been served by 21.20 we decided to leave without it. The restaurant manager was most apologetic (we didn't complain she actually noticed that we hadn't been served) and she offered a discount which we accepted. However, the poor service left an impression and we will not be revisiting Mapas.

Booked and confirmed table- unavailable
Food lacking taste and presentation
Chunky chips uncooked
Coffee undrinkable- bitter ( and has been for many years ) we got the classic and patronising response - “no one else complained”

We were seated as soon as we arrived but were not presented with a menu until we asked for one 10 to 15 minutes after we were seated. It was only after complaining about the service that a server arrived at the table to ask if we would like a drink.
