We visited Foodworks after reading a very good review of it. We were not disappointed with our meal. Our charming waitress hailed from Portugal and could not have been more helpful.

I booked dinner for a group of nine friends. The restaurant had brilliant communication, phoned to check the reservation on the day and were very accommodating when we phones to say we had been slightly delayed.
We had a set group menu and everyone found something they liked on the menu. There were simple and fail safe options like steak, beautiful risotto for the vegetarian and delicious hake for those who wanted fish.
We had a three course meal for just under thirty euro per head, the portion sizes were perfect for the group and there were clean plates all round!
The service was professional, they were attentive but very much in the background which was perfect.

Service can be slow. Ive been here a handful of times and service is slow regardless of the place being busy or not. The menu is so-so, nothing screams'wow I really want that to me'. The food is good but could be better as it is pricey.

Despite attending on a quiet evening the service was slow! The menu was only ok! The bathrooms (and approach to the actual bathrooms) would benefit from a thorough upgrade. In my mind, a restaurant is only as good as the standard of its WC!!

I visited Foodworks with my children during the Easter break. Lovely food, fantastic service. The kids shared fish and chips and I had a delicious vegetarian sandwich with hummus and roast vegetables. Delicious and fantastic value. Highly recommended!
