Franzini's is right across the street from the castle, and Aiden the manager assured us they could serve us in time for our tour, so we decided to have lunch there. The food was AMAZING! I got the ribs, which were... More

If you have any food allergies, tread carefully in here. On a recent visit and having made our dietary requirements quite clear, we were still served up a starter that aroused our suspicions. Ascertaining whether the starter was ‘safe’ for us to eat proved problematic. The waitress had no idea what was contained in the sauce. Not a clue. The... More

Had a lovely dinner here while staying in Trim. We were able to take advantage of the early bird menu and found it to be very good. Two of us had pasta (mine was spaghetti bolognese and it was great) and one a vegetarian pizza and we all enjoyed our choices. The service was good and the atmosphere pleasant. Overall... More

Very pleased with our dinner here. Had the carrot soup, smoked salmon and fish and chips. It was very good with generous portions and fish was fresh. Staff was welcoming and attentive.

We arrived and were initially welcomed by the host. After 20 minutes to get our orders taken, our server never returned to our table. I noted that he attended his other tables several times checking if they needed anything or how their food/drinks were, but with us no one came to check in except one waiter who took our dessert...

First time here wont be the last. Fantastic food & service in a busy restaurant. A bit more pricey than others but you certainly get what you pay for. Good varied menu cant wait to try out some of the other dishes.
