Description: The ‘gBK’ (George Bar & Kitchen) provides a refreshing and unique dining experience for the city. Our lunch and dinner menus offer something for everyone in a relaxed environment. All our dishes are cooked to order and freshly prepared in house by our extremely talented kitchen team. All our food is locally sourced ensuring freshness to the table for all diners.Bridging the gap between a casual café and a formal restaurant, the gBK has grown in popularity in Limerick city since opening in 2006.The gBK opens its doors daily from 7.00am to the wonderful smells of full Irish breakfast & freshly ground coffee, you can have a stack of toast & jam or a healthy bowl of porridge or why not a warm muffin ‘to-go’ with your freshly brewed tea or coffee to set you up for the day ahead.Check out our lunch menu which is available 12.30pm -3.30pm daily. The gBK restaurant offers great food and drinks at affordable prices in an informal, pleasant atmosphere in the heart of Limerick city.Here in the gBK you can sample some of the best dishes in Limerick, from our locally sourced Sirloin Steaks, succulent Sea-bass, our specially stone-baked pizzas to an Irish Stew from our Chefs’ own family recipe. This Boutique Hotel Limerickis the ideal location for dining in Limerick.What you will find is a very relaxed and informal approach to dining in style. The restaurant area is beautifully welcoming to all with open arms. Whether you are looking for an intimate setting, somewhere to entertain work colleagues or simply dining out with your friends, George has it all with window tables to watch the world go by or secluded booths for true romantics. “It’s such things that keep people coming back time after time” says the well established and friendly George team.Accompanied by a small but beautiful selection of new World wines there is always something to suit every taste & budget.

Popped in with my family in the mid afternoon. We are 2 adults & 2 kids. The staff are very attentive and very pleasant. I had hake on a bed of potato and roasted veg with a lemon & olive oil sauce pesto. Very tasty and quite filling. My wife had a red Thai curry with saffron rice. She enjoyed it immensely. The kids had chicken goujons with mashed potato & gravy garnished with water cress (simple but very good sized portions- more like adult sized and my kids love water cress!). The kids also had chocolate & nut pancakes... they were divine :-) . Overall the food was delishes, very well presented (the kids weren't forgotten about either on this front compared with some establishments). The service was excellent and the cost was reasonable. Well done.

We had a pleasant evening at the george. We both had the early bird special (from 5 till 7pm) where you get a complete three coursr meal for under 20 euros. For starters don't miss the garlic ciabatta. And for dessert try the heavenly mess, its wonderful. Also thanks Bart our friendly waiter and his tips on what to visit on our trip through Ireland.
