I have been several times with friends for lunch. Always excellent. I went this week and I was disappointed in the overall dining experience. The refurbishment is elegant. The food is very good but the service not as good.

This was my first visit to Breda Murphy's and was not disappointed. The food was fantastic, the staff were attentive and polite and the decor, simple but pleasant. It was a busy restaurant so I would recommend booking as it's only small. Will definitely return.
