Gourmet Food Parlour - Santry
Great value, lovely setting. But, service was a little slow and toilets needed a good cleaning. Otherwise, food was really nice and I would go back again.
Had brunch with an old friend, we were upstairs which was very nice. It was my friends first visit and she enjoyed it. Only problem I had was there were a couple of young families up there so a bit noisy and one child kept walking around. Not something you can really manage 😊
Couldn’t fault your Sunday brunch experience 😁 I had written a note when booking as there were 2 children, and 1 baby in our party and table all set up when we got there!
Great place for casual dining with a great range of choice on the menu and lovely staff
Amazing service but the surroundings could do with a bit of work.
We were seated on the top floor on Valentines evening. I booked a table for two stating in the comment that I'd like it to be private since we're on a date. We were seated in a corner on a big round table for 4..
It was right next to a chatty couple that were too loud and the tables were too close together. It was really awkward!
What totally ruined the mood was no flowers anywhere on the tables. It was Valentines and not a single rose was in the entire room. I would've been happy with fake ones.
Tables were just plain with no cloth on and with old looking cutlery on them. It felt like we were in a public kitchen.
We ordered drinks - 2 pina coladas. I can't say I liked them since fruit could be barely tasted and they were mostly alcohol. They are supposed to be opposite - fruity drinks with a faint taste of alcohol.
Food was great but portions could be at least 1/3 smaller. We couldn't finish all.
Service was excellent and friendly. Girls were experienced in their work and fast.
Reason for 2 stars for service is it took long for our order to be taken.After trying to attract the attention of one of the staff we eventually had to get up and go ask them to take our order - this was at least 20 mins after we had arrived. For those of us who were working it took away from the experience as we were under pressure then to leave.
Really impressed with GFP , the food was lush and the service was really personal. Will definitely be back for another visit !
Food was great as always. Place is very understaffed and as a result service was very slow. I had to call someone after 20 minutes of being seated to take our order. That is my only hangup. Needs more staff.
A nice place near home to have brunch .

I’ve only been to the GFP for lunch and brunch so this was my first time to have dinner there. I thought the food was disappointing. Vegan curry was like soup on rice, thin soup at that. No pulses, mushrooms, very few peppers. It was rather oily too. Dessert was a huge disappointment. It was bought in apple crumble which was heated in a microwave. You know when you get that soggy pastry and the crumble had lost the meaning of crumbly.... more like stodgy. I won’t be back for dinner. Our waiter was a very nice guy, so gets four stars. I grudgingly give two stars for food.
very enjoyable lunch with no fuss , staff very friendly and professional. Food excellent.

I’ve been here a few times now for breakfast lunch and dinner...I always find that there is not enough staff members taking orders etc for how busy the restaurant is. You have to wait way too long after being seated to be even offered a drink while you look over the menu. Food is amazing and although rushed off there feet the staff are always very polite and accommodating.

Hi Kathle Thanks so much for your feedback, delighted to read that you enjoyed your lunch visit to Santry! I will be sure to pass your feedback on to the team. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Team GFP
Food can be hit and miss - Falafels are a waste of money and look a mess on the plate, whereas the Surf & Turf special I had was fabulous, and great value for money. Service can be a bit slow at times. My colleagues and I eat there regularly, the staff are pleasant enough, but can be a bit robotic with service, some staff not knowing that a toasted sandwich on the menu, should actually be toasted.
We had a lovely family brunch last Sunday with 2 young kids. Service was excellent serving the kids first and making sure they were happy and looked after. Food was fast and delicious, compliments to the chef! Can’t wait to come back!

I don't eat meat or fish, so for me the choice was very poor

Had a reservation and we were seated at a lovely table straight away although it was extremely busy! Service was good, although there was a long wait for our brunch we didn't mind as it gave us time to catch up. Food was cold to be honest and the portion was smaller than my other times here but all in all very happy, it was so busy and we were so hungry we did not say anything about food being cold. We also had a cocktail and mocktail after our food which were really lovely. Will be back very soon! Always recommend to make a reservation as the place is always so busy!
Lovely meal and very friendly staff
Enjoyed the experience
Fantastic brunch with top-notch full Irish breakfasts

Early bird dinner with my other half - great service as always, so friendly and efficient and the food was yummy!
Food was great, scampi and chips delicious. Signature burger really tasty. Defiately go back to try more dishes. Great value for money. Lovely atmosphere. Staff were really attentive and helpful.
Hi Sandra, Many thanks for taking the time to send us on your feedback. We are delighted to read it. I do hope we can welcome you back again in the future. Regards, Team GFP
I would recommend it because I've gone before and it was fab. The girl who seated us was rude, didn't bring out water after asking twice and brought the wrong menu. However our server came on about half hour later and services was much better.
Delicious food and wonderful atmosphere with live entertainment on New Years. Service was slow but they were very busy and extremely nice once we were served so we didn’t mind. Would definitely recommend.
The starters of calamari were lovely, I ordered sea bass which again was lovely however the Thai curry was inedible
The live guitar music was too loud and it was difficult to have a conversation, disappointing as I have never had a bad meal previously
The service was good however
Food was fabulous, each breakfast dish we ordered was really tasty. The staff were a bit grumpy (it was New Years Eve so maybe no one wanted to be working) with the exception of the woman who greeted us & showed us to our table. One of our breakfast dishes was missing an item but we didn’t want to ask the staff for it as we were almost afraid!! But the food was delicious & it’s a great place for taking kids too.
Good warm welcome by staff, seated on time as table booked. Restaurant busy but good atmosphere.
Good selection on menu with all diets catered for. Staff very friendly and helpful on ordering from menu.
Food arrived in good time and was excellent and good value for money.
Have been before & always enjoyed. Yesterday was a little rushed & our waitress seemed very stressed. We had mains & was Asked 3 times did we want dessert menu - said yes each time. Got desserts eventually which we enjoyed with our coffees. Waitress came to us & said she would bring bill as they needed table back. I know it’s hard t judge somewhere at Christmas time but definitely not the service you normally get in Gourmet Food Parlour - hopefully was just a once off!
Very busy restaurant, make sure you reserve a table. Service very quick which makes your 90 min time slot plenty, for brunch at least
Delicious food, excellent staff and beautiful decor
Excellent food, service, staff & venue. Looking forward to visiting again many times in 2020!!
I go here quite often, food amazing as are the staff
Flat out busy for Christmas - but standards maintained. Staff bang on as always.
It was good in overall with the one exception our group arrived at 4:30 pm and they still served lunch menu. So we were waiting 1 hour for diner menu. I think this could be more flexible.
Excellent food and service would recommend!
Have visited several times and always consistent.
The quesadillas are the best. I would be very disappointed if they ever came off the menu. The staff are so nice and down to earth so the atmosphere is always positive with a friendly vibe. Even though it is always busy nothing is ever too much hassle.
