In spite of the flavour of the food, a bitter taste lingered after my experience of Nicks restaurant! We were a party of five, all of whom ordered three courses as well as a few drinks and coffees. Our bill was therefore not unsubstantial. When it came to payment, my friend and I produced a €100 gift voucher from 2009... More

Had an excellent meal with my partner in Nicks on new years day. Service was impeccable and personal. We have eaten in many top class restaurants worldwide and must say this is up there with the best of them. No hesitation in recommending this place to anybody. Hats off to staff and chefs.

Organised a family pre Christmas get together. John kindly accommodated an early table for 12 despite a very busy and fully booked evening. The food was excellent, well presented, staff were incredible and I look forward to coming back in January.

My favorite part was arriving a bit early and sitting at the bar. That's where we got to know the proprietor and enjoy what we found to be common in Ireland - a happy,... More
