We had the shepards pie and shrimp burger which were both excellent but the Guinness was disappointingly in a can instead of on tap. It was still good though! Service was slow, but that seems to be the norm in Mexico. Nice large clean restaurant, nice atmosphere. Bathroom could have been cleaner though.

I ordered the Sheppard's pie and the chicken sandwich with Brie. The Sheppard's pie was bland and served on the same plate as a sweet vinaigrette dressing, the bottom of the Sheppard's pie was soaked in dressing, it was not a good combination. The chicken sandwich on the other hand was absolutely terrific, the chicken was tender the Brie was... More

We first visited 5 years ago and are happy to report that it's still just as good! We popped in for lunch after strolling along the Paseo and it was a refreshing way to beat the heat. Hubby enjoys the selection of beers, especially the imports. He ordered the chicken curry which was very yummy. I went with the burger... More

I needed a break from Mexican food/beer and decided to visit Hennessey's. It was great...their menu had a wide selection of food/beer and the bartenders were very friendly and attentive. I had their Bangers/Mash and a few Guinness. The only negative about the bar was their music. Instead of playing Irish, rock or even pop music, they were playing some... More

Amazing atmosphere. Big menu selection. Not cheap. Not too expensivo. Decent bordering on real good service. The food is good, but not great. I had the fish and chips. Will have to try other items on their menu and report back.

We were amazed at the range of authentic pub grub available on the menu. It was a very crowded afternoon as all of the women who had marched in solidarity with those in the USA the day after the inauguration were there. So, there was a party like atmosphere and we were, of course, delighted to cheer them on. We... More

Went on a Sunday afternoon. Of course there were football games on. Nice crowd of people, mostly gringos. Ordered food and drinks at the bar. Bar staff was not interested in doing much of anything and extremely unpersonable. Food was decent. Won't return.

We've been to Hennessy's lots of times and I'm sure we'll be going back again. Good food, good beer and not very expensive. Nice place to watch the game and enjoy something to eat and drink
