Came here for dinner in the early evening. We booked a table online and there was no wait when we arrived.

The staff were all very friendly and polite.

I had not been here before so I didn’t know what it was like.
You can go to a chain pub for a meal or a franchise restaurant, however I strongly recommend going to a local restaurant like this. Everything is made to order so it’s not been sitting out.

I ordered the Hake and it was amazing. Never had Hake before so didn’t know what to expect but it was really good!

I also ordered the tablet cheesecake, out of this world. I won’t even describe it because I won’t do it justice. Go and try it yourself because it’s probably up there with the best dessert.

I did see some people with starters and they looked really nice. The portions are a good size also and it was reasonably priced.

I will definitely be back again for more cheesecake.

Kids away for a night so we had to go out. Quick call to Faodail to reserve a table

I really do like this place, still don’t understand how they survive as there were a lot of empty tables even on a Friday night

honest food but done perfectly

To end you have to try the tablet cheesecake........mmmmmm

Big thanks to staff and chef

We will return

Thank you so much for your lovely review.

We never have two days the same here, so sometimes we can have a packed Friday lunch and a quiet late evening and then the next week it's vice versa. We also use our function room upstairs on Friday evenings so the downstairs part is usually quieter to cope with that, hence why last Friday was quiet in the main part.

We hope you continue to come see us!

Popped in here for lunch. Food, service and hospitality all great. Learned the meaning behind the name and had a lovely chat with the owner. Nothing seemed too much trouble, prices were reasonable and the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. Will definitely return.

It was a pleasure to meet you and your family the other day and it was lovely to chat about where we've come from and a bit about the history of the building :)

We hope you will all come back and see us again soon!

We booked this for a special family occasion after reading so many excellent reviews. It was a perfect choice - relaxed, friendly and welcoming. We all made different choices of starters and mains from the menu and everyone said how much they enjoyed their food. I would definitely return if in the area. You helped to make our day. Thank you.

We have had lunch at Faodail 3 times now, in the last 3months.

The restaurant is easy to get to as it is just over the Kincardine bridge. The streets around the restaurant are quite tight as most have cars parked along one side of them. The restaurant has 4 parking spaces beside it for customers/staff. These can be tight as locals are sometimes parked right across from the spaces. There is on street parking but you have to find the right space which is not too tight. A better option is to use the small car park that is only 2 minutes walk away, beside the Coop (I think).

It is a cosy and comfortable restaurant down the small steps. There is also a bar area with sofas to sit and have a drink.

The food has always been of a very good & fresh quality. My wife has an intolerance to wheat & dairy. This is where Faodail excels. A lot of the menu can be tailored to meet dietary requirements and it seems no request is too much trouble. Quite different to the usual small number of options you get on a menu elsewhere, for those with dietary issues.

So, if you usually find it difficult to dine in a restaurant because of food intolerance/allergies I’d highly recommend you give Faodail a try.

For those without this challenge it is, of course, equally good.

Although it is about 40minutes away we are quite happy to travel that distance for the quality of the food and assistance with dietary needs.

The service is always very friendly and helpful. The pricing is very reasonable given the food quality.

Hi John, thank you so much for such a wonderfully detailed review. It's brilliant to see such detail as it lets potential customers see what a great they're in for when they come to Faodail!

We pride ourselves on being able to tweak many of our dishes to suit all diets and allergies and I'm thrilled you and your wife love what we do.

We hope to see you both again soon
