We tried to have a special Sunday lunch for our American friends, and met the most unfriendly staff at the Brabazon Restaurant, who appeared to think it a chore to serve us. All the staff looked grumpy and not once was there a smile or friendly word. The food was mediocre also, tough and gristly meat and badly cooked vegetables, so we left before dessert. We won't be back.
