Nice lunchtime restaurant . The staff are polite and professional . The food is above average if a little pricey . I would recommend trying this place for lunch.

I often go to brooks, but today I was very disappointed. Myself and my friends ordered a lot of food but felt that we were in the way and the staff were rushed when leaning over us to give us the food. They seemed to not care or have time for us. We were constantly asking for fresh water and cutlery, the food was lovely but over priced and the staff were not friendly. Very dissappointed today.

Brook's bar, which is part of the Dinn Ri complex provides the amenities of a bar and a restaurant combined, serving breakfasts, lunch, brunch and evening meals. The quality on offer is excellent, though the menu is a little bit expensive in this post-Celtic tiger times, never the less, you'll be assured of a meal of high quality or if you prefer a good coffee with some outstanding cakes!

Just a quick review on this establishment. Went in with partner and mother in law for lunch. Food was lovely as it always is in this bistro and all areas of the Dinn Ri building. Service was friendly and prompt even though it was quiet a busy Saturday lunchtime.
However all this was let down by quiet noticeable cobwebs on a number of light fittings. If I spotted them I don't know how housekeeping missed them.
But for food and service it really is outstanding!!!!
