Recently dined in Beckett's Restaurant........early bird menu was average.... €26 for four course sounds like good bang for the buck but bit cheeky to add on a 12.5% service charge, especially when there were only two of us, and not like it was a big group of 8 or more!!
Food was nothing exceptional....the mackerel salad starter was probably the best part, but my friend had to return starter off ham and liver paté - so tough you would need steak knife to cut it.....and accompanied with two thick slices of ciabatta....strange combo.....our mains were ok......my pork was bit dry and only saved by the apple puree sauce....tasteless though.
I love cheesecake but Beckett's offering was a huge disappointment......they certainly know how to charge for wine by the glass. We should probably have opted for the four course with bottle of wine which costs €70 and most importantly does not include the infamous service charge.....I think that's bit cheeky in these times to take for granted to include a service charge for early bird menu! There are much finer establishments in the city and I won't be back to Beckett's...... the surroundings are quite quaint . I won;t be rushing back though!
