Well what an outstanding meal, we both had the goats cheese to start,followed by the beef. Both courses were excellent. The food was perfectly cooked and presented. The portion sizes were just right as they left us room for desert. I had the brûlée and my friend the sticky toffee pudding, again delicious. Well done to the chef and the waiting staff. We will most definitely be back soon.

My go to restaurant in Ballyhackamore. Been coming here ever since David and his wife opened. He offers hearty no nonsense food with imagination and flavour. That suits me down to the ground as he offers me new tasting experiences each time, but with the comfort of knowing, there'll always be something to like.

Son's dishes were cracking and lots of it, considering they there were on the early bird menu, they were great value for money. A plate full of tempura mussels, and a lovely rich venison bolognese. My lamb shoulder dish was perfect.

Service was friendly, yet not invasive. Good to see a Riesling served by the glass, a rarity in most restaurants.

Decided to visit for Sunday lunch for a special occasion. Restaurant is beautifully decorated with some unusually quirky bits and great local artwork. Staff are friendly and could not do enough to help. Sunday menu is just fantastic offering several roasts and two or three other fish/vegetarian options. All accompanied by beautifully cooked potatoes and veg and gravy like granny's. Just excellent. Good choice of starters and puddings too and extensive (though quite expensive) wine list. Perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Thank you Bistro Este
