Was in Navan recently with the gf and was starving so decided to go back here as we had such a nice meal in December...and it was even better the second time around! There is such a good inviting vibe to the place, plenty of regulars and same as before, a nice mix of young and not so young. Always... More

Lovely Spanish omelette and salad. Their food is always well prepared and served quickly. The ingredients are fresh and the menu has a good selection. Friendly staff to boot. Can't go wrong - one of the better places for lunch in Navan

I ate here with the girlfriend recently and we both agreed, the food and especially the service is second to none in Navan! When we entered on a busy Saturday we were immediately greeted by a very friendly woman who I think was the owner. She seated us and we were told the specials of the day and what she... More

Was in the Gate over the weekend, had amazing mince-pies and bread and butter pudding. One of the best I have had. This place is a must have when in Navan!

I went and had breakfast. It's the first time that I visited here. I was pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly and very helpful. And I got an extra cup of coffee! Free! I would highly recommend this quaint little place for breakfast, lunch and tea/coffee and scones. Lovely calm atmosphere even though they're busy. I think it's a very... More

Popped in last week as I had been missing this place since I am not in Navan as much any more. Had lovely breakfast and fresh almond and pear scone. Delicious. Highly recommed this place. Love the staff and the girls that run it.

We were very happy with our choice here i had the seafood chowder. It was fresh and tasty. For my wife and I we only paid 20 euros. Great deal. The staff was very friendly and handled any needs we had promptly. I would recommend

I had one of the best "full Irish" breakfasts I've ever had at The Gate. Sausage, Bacon, eggs any style and black and white pudding. I ordered Irish brown bread and white coffee (similar to a latte) which was included in the price. The food was freshly prepared for each order and the service was top class and the price... More
