“Good food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

In the U.S., I'm used to getting gouged at food places on site at attractions. Cafe had good food at a reasonable price, with a good selection for the kids. Service was good, even though it was crowded.

“Superb food, amazing value & delightful scenery”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We travel to Knock Shrine thrice a year. We had eaten here a few times in the past. Now, is the time to post a review.

This year , We had lunch here twice! food was simply fantastic! if this cafe has a branch in Dublin , I would be a regular.

Fresh, high quality Irish produce ,extensive menus and delectable desserts
Bright, Airy and very clean restaurant
cheerful and fast service
I've always enjoyed the view of the Shrine and the garden from the restaurant
All these for a very reasonable price.

Dining at Cafe le Cheile has always been a pleasurable experience for us.
Thank you & Well-done!

“Good food but service lets it down ”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

Had lunch here with my mother.
The cafe was busy but not so busy to justify the length of time we were waiting to be served.
The waitress who served us appeared very disinterested and while she certainly was not rude she was not friendly either.
The food was quite good - my mother had soup and a toasted sandwich which were good and I had an egg mayonnaise salad which lacked on presentation and taste.
The menu looks good and dishes I saw with other diners had large portions.
For me service is key and Cafe le Cheile fell at the first fence.

“Fantastic service and value”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

Visited the cafe on a Sunday at lunch time. The cafe staff were so efficient and friendly. The food was so hot and tasty and so much of it we couldn't finish it. Would highly recommend it and will be back.
