Have eaten here several times before and tends to be hit and miss but my most recent visit there left me and my dining companions aghast. A burger described as homemade and priced at €14 and it was flats and processed. To me that's tantamount to fraud and totally unacceptable. Childrens food was appalling, roast beef looked and tasted like it had been steamed. full plates of it went back and no one asked why. waitresses never smiled. starters were okay and deserts were really nice but just dumped on table and we had to find our own. It took about 6 requests for everyone to get their coffee. Overall very, very disappointing and overpriced.

We had a graduation party of twelve, and had the most fantastic food. Their was a great variety on the menu, the set menu was 20 euros per person and was really great value, we also had a choice from the al a carte as well.The food was piping hot and so tasty. My husband and brother had the seafood pie and they said they have never tasted anything like it before and so fresh. From the starters to the dessert we couldn't fault it in any way.The staff were so friendly and nothing was a bother to them. We will definitely come back and would highly recommend it..
Thank you to Becketts for a wonderful day.

We love Becketts, have sate. There lots of times, and always return when in Ireland, in fact we look forward to it. We went to Becketts last week for Sunday lunch....
Starters were excellent, seafood and soup, main Sunday lunch was a little disappointing, meat was over cooked and a little 'sloppy on the plate'.
Hoping it was a bad day, this is a great restaurant so we will give it another go but guys COME ON, it's such a great place

I eat out there quite regularly as I live nearby. The atmosphere is relaxed, the service is amazing, the food is of a really high standard. Would wholeheartedly recommend combo fry, one of my favourites and chowder!

This is a very casual place to eat, relaxing we arrived after a day at the beach and it had plenty of seating inside but also seating outside on a lovely sunny evening. We had lovely meals which the service was very quick, the food was hot and tasty, with a good selection on the menu to choose from the menu was .very well priced also . We will go back and eat here again when we are passing
