“Lovely Family Meal”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

What can I say, another fantastic meal in such comfortable surroundings at Sol Oriens. My wife and I plus the two little guys Ellen (5) and Tom (3) were made to feel totally at ease by the two very professional waiters. Kids had a pizza and chips between the two of them and licked the plates clean followed by ice cream on the house. I had a gorgeous goats cheese and roast peppers on a toasted crostini with salad and for the main mussels in spicy tomato, garlic and chilli sauce. Absolutely fab. And for my wife, Cesar Salad - very very nice and sweetcorn chicken and blue cheese pizza for the main. Nicest pizza I ever tasted. All washed down with a bottle of Sangiovese and two juices for kids came in a a reasonable €88. Fab setting, service and value. Been before and will be here for many years to come.

“Excellent service wonderful food..A pleasure”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 via mobile

This was a return visit to this restaurant.... The initial experience was really very good, I have to say the return visit was not a disappointment...the staff are to be commended on their consistently excellent service and despite what I believe is a change in chef the standard of cuisine is as good as before if not better. The restaurant was busy but not rushed..... The atmosphere is lively and cordial most definitely relaxed but always 5 *.... A pleasure to frequent. Thank you...

“Absolutely gorgeous restaurant in every way”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

What a gem of a restaurant, we were there last Saturday night, a gang of friends and we had such a special night and were looked after so well. The meal was gorgeous, the menu was so good it was very difficult to choose but my God, the food was delicious. Make sure you try it if you visit the Heritage.

“Very good Italian”
Reviewed 11 August 2013 via mobile

This was our second time in this restaurant. It does everything a typical Irish Italian restaurant does but the food is cooked really well and the staff are very attentive and friendly.
