“Good food, Excellent Wine list and great service”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

We dined here kind of by surprise as I forgot to make a booking at our regular haunt.
It was quite a happy mistake!
The service here was excellent, and the menu was quite good.
Great utilization of local produce, coupled with attentive and personal service.
The steak was excellent, amongst the best I've had in Limerick.
My GF was very happy with her courses and overall, it was an excellent dining experience and one that I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone.

“Great food in Limerick”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Went midweek to River Restaurant to catch up with a friend. Both ordered off fixed menu. Excellent choice. I had chicken liver parfait. Strong earthy flavour, well prepared. For main course I had fillet steak. I ordered it rare but it was more medium/rare, but was still succulent and juicy. For desert I had a pistachio, rosewater parfait. Very fragrant and delicious. Two glasses of house Cab Sauv went nicely with meal. Good value for an above average meal.

“STILL AN 'AWFULLY NICE' PLACE TO BE AMONG 'AWFULLY NICE' PEOPLE AND HAVE AN 'AWFULLY NICE' LUNCH.”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

We went back to the River Restaurant for lunch and were not disappointed.
The glass of Proseco gets everyone in the right mood.
The soup or salad or both make excellent starters.
The main courses are great, although they don't vary very much.
The desserts can only be described as 'sinful', so be prepared for a good walk afterwards
to loose the extra weight gained.
The coffee/tea is nice to finish off on a good note.
The staff are more than helpful.
All in all a great experience.

“Food good, service slow”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

The food was excellent and the staff very friendly. There were a few large groups so it was hard to get the attention of staff. Early bird menu very good value. Will return.
