Description: Overlooking the River Shannon, the Radisson Blu Hotel in historic Athlone has spectacular views across the marina to the castle and cathedral beyond. Inside, diners can enjoy local and internationally influenced cuisine at Element's Bistro, a welcoming, brasserie-style restaurant with bright glass panels, bamboo screens and a stunning octagonal open fireplace. In this relaxed and atmospheric environment, you will find a fresh and easy approach to the menu, with contemporary cooking at its finest. An exciting range of options to amply prepare every diner for a day's business or leisure accompanies the Radisson Blu Super Breakfast Buffet. Cold and warm buffets of the finest meats and cheeses, a selection of fruit juices, fresh fruits and water, and the most aromatic of coffees and teas are all accompanied by homemade pastries and Irish breads.

“Great Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

Myself and wife dined at this restaurant recently. We selected from the early bird menu which was 3 courses plus tea or coffee for 25e per person. The selection of courses was expansive (my wife is a vegetarian and she was happy!). All courses were delicious, portion sizes were generous and the service was attentive and very helpful. Overall I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Got the 59 euro meal of four courses and wine for 59 euro. (Per couple)

Service very good and friendly, wine very tasty and the food was delicious, very crunchy and crispy Caesar salad, chicken and vegetables and potato was delicious and finished off with lovely profiteroles

Would highly recommend.

“Nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013 via mobile

Myself and hubby were staying a few nights in the hotel and it included a meal. Set menu, we ordered soup and feta salad starters and fish for main. The starters were nice, but main course fish portion very very small, accompanied by potatoes, nice, but very crunchy slightly undercooked veg. We enjoyed desserts of cheesecake and crumble, nothing too exciting just ok. As it was included in the price it was ok, but I wouldn't be going there again as have had better elsewhere. Waitress very friendly.
