I've never had a bad experience in Loaves & Fishes (either branch). The food is always delicious and portions are huge. Staff are really friendly & helpful. Excellent value for money.

“Service with a Smile !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Dining in Loaves and Fishes is a total sensory experience from start to finish. I met my friends for lunch after their Viking Boat up the Shannon. They were looking for something to warm them up, and got more than hot soup! From arrival to departure, the dining experience is warm, welcoming, delicious....Service is with a Smile and a warm word, seating (when possible) is to suit the comfort of the guests, and the food is always to order - to suit the requirements of the guests. On this occasion, the soup was exactly what the doctor ordered, and was a meal in a bowl, served with fresh homemade brown bread. My friends enjoyed friendly engagement with the waitresses and were delighted with their visit to Loaves and Fishes, as I knew they would be.....which is why I brought them !

“The Mardyke Street Branch is my favourite lunch spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

The minestrone soup is fantastic, I love it with garlic bread. It's great value. The atmosphere is informal. The girls Maggie & Fiona are very helpful and Gerry the proprietor is very accommodating.
