Like 10 Acre Kitchen around the corner, the food is extremely good. On our first visit to the Bistro this past weekend (the Kitchen being closed for a function) our main dishes (braised lamb for me) were excellently prepared. However, while the prices seemed the same, the atmosphere was (to my mind) less desirable. The trendy music didn't help. The... More

Were there for a celebration dinner & our party could not be accommodated indoors so we were placed at two long tables on the patio. It has overhead warmers & a fire but it was still quite chilly especially when the door was open. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The helpings were large.I found the chicken & grains in curry sauce...

This restaurant is beautifully appointed - it feels like you are eating in an outdoor garden (though it is indoors). Try the wild garlic prawns, which were spectacular! The food is local and organic (farm to table). Highly recommend!

I am a fussy eater and always question the quality of the food used. Not here! I have entertained a large group as well as had a quiet dinner with friends here. The food is grown / raised on their own farm locally and you can tell that the Chef is passionate about what leave the kitchen. My favorite place... More

We had dinner here, ordering a salad with roasted veggies and a taco plate to split. We thought the roasted veggies with cold greens would be ???, but it was great! The local goat cheese on the salad gave it a kick, too. The fish tacos were perfectly cooked. The presentation lovely. It was hopping with people, so not a... More

Virtually everything served at 10 Acres is locally produced, mostly on the farm that gives the restaurant its name. Food is fresh and inspiring. It is amazing to consider the wealth of flavours, aromas and textures that can be produced locally. For a complete list of seasonal products provided to the restaurant by the farm, visit the farm page at... More

My husband and I went here for dinner tonight and were extremely disappointed in the service we received. According to our receipt, we were served by Niamh. We were seated and provided with water. Good start. We then ended up waiting approximately 20 minutes for our server to return and take our drink order. Not so great. She could tell... More

Thank you for your review on your dining experience with us on Tuesday night. I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy your evening with us.

This is a place that maybe hasn't quite made up its mind about its identity yet. Its not bad, but it is inconsistent; expensive drinks but also cheap extras, fresh local produce mixed with out of season generic ingredients, friendly servers but amazingly slow service. Had I been expecting a new chain restaurant, I might have been pleasantly surprised, but... More
