We are two adults and two toddlers looking for an afternoon snack. It was a beautiful day and we decided to eat here as we could sit outside and overlook the Shannon. I had to look for someone to give us menus and take our order. I ordered soup and potatoes for the toddlers, a standard enough request I would have thought. At first she didn't know what I meant and then told me they had no potatoes but she would check with the chef. Over 30 minutes later another server brought out half our food, she had to be asked where was the rest of our order. On tasting the toddlers soup and potatoes, I discovered that the potatoes were garlic potatoes. Seriously, how disgusting is that? I called over another server, called Avril, she was lovely and very helpful and horrified at what we had been served but said it was a regular occurrence and one of the girls was actually studying hotel management in college! God love the future of the hotel and service industry if that's what the future management is going to be like. My sandwich was just edible, bread was a bit hard and the tortilla chips was all the bits shook out from the end of the bag. I would never eat here again.
