The river bank is a good restaurant but is lacking atmosphere. No where you can enjoy a before dinner drink. Food was very good and plenty of it but if someone is sited after you they rush the food to your table

I have eaten here a few times since the restaurant re opened as Parkers Of Riverstown. The menu has a great variety. The evening menu has a fantastic choice with 4 courses for €22. There are supplements on some of the dishes but the dinner will never cost you more than €31, which is excellent with the quantity and quality of the food you receive. My last meal here was fantastic we were seated upstairs in the newly renovated room, it was spacious and homely. The new wine cellar is a credit to the building and finishes the room excellently. The service staff were very friendly and consistent. A massive plus with the restaurant is the interest they have in coeliac friendly dishes, They are making a big effort to cater for coeliac's with gluten free sauces and bread available on request. I will be returning for dinner again very soon.

Had a beautiful meal here last Saturday night 8th March 2014 with my husband. Upstairs has been renovated and a lovely job has been done on same. All colours very soothing and the floor was beautiful. Particularly liked the shelving on end wall with wine bottles! As always the food was perfect, especially my steak, done exactly to order. The restaurant was fully booked yet service was quick and the staff very cheerful and helpful. Great value also. Will definitely be back soon.

As a regular in this place. I can certainly recommend it. It's recent renovation has been done well in keeping with the original building and in fitting in with the the natural surroundings.
the menu is wide and varied and the price is fantastic. It's not fine dining but it's good food cooked well and served with a smile.

As a piece of advice, I think they should consider one light option for their Sunday lunch starter. As a wheat and gluten free 'vicitm', soup is the only option whereas the evening menu has a lovely warm chicken salad which ticks the boxes. They give unbelievably large cheese portions both for deep fried brie starter and for their cheese board almost taking from the dishes but otherwise it is great food and I wish them all the very best of luck with it. I look forward to returning very soon.

I have eaten dinner here on several occasions and each time I have found the food to be excellent and cooked as requested, lots of nice crunchy vegetables and chips, the desserts are consistently good and the food represents excellent value at €22.00 for 3 courses (with supplements for steak and duck). The staff are all very friendly and you are always met with a smile, I will definitely return. This restaurant is now called Parker's of Riverstown and not the Riverbank.
