“Really Good Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2011

Went here on Thurs evening. As we were passing through we had no reservation but got table straight away even though it appeared very busy. Staff so pleasant and friendly and food excellent. Portions may appear small but we still had enough to eat. Ten euro main courses are great value.
You must have the tobelerone cheesecake for dessert.

Fantastic atmosphere and food and excellent value at €10 for a main course, infact it was so good we returned on a second night! I had the mushroom for starters and the hake for main - really tasty! :-) Would definately recommend and go back!

“Cheap, Cheerful & Very Tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2011

I had dinner in the Top Deck Bistro with a few friends recently. It was a Friday night and the place was buzzing. The owner was on the floor all night and he made a great fuss of us and he was very nice. The food was very tasty and well prepared. The starters & desserts are a bit expensive but the €10 main course was fantastic value. I had a chicken salad starter and it was very good. The Hake main was gorgeous and tasted very fresh. I skipped dessert but the ladies enjoyed their.
It's good to see a restaurant that has moved with the times and gives people real value.
Well done, I'll definitely be back.

“very dark can you see your food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2011

I hav been here a few times and find the food average, you have to climb alot of stairs to get into it and it is very dark inside its probably meant to make the ambiance nicer but it is too dark. The food is nice, average prices but not the greatest in the town. On one occasion when it was busy 4 of us were placed in a corner beside the door into the kitchen which was terrible.
