Sex Not Specified Myself and my husband and our three small kids visited the Elm Tree on a busy Saturday night a few weeks ago and I must say I was more than impressed with the restaurant, food and service. We arrived at about half 6 which of course is peak dinner time and we had braced ourselves for a bit of wait. However when we arrived we were told it would only be 5 or 10 minutes and true to the managers word we were seated within 10 minutes which was great! The bar area is lovely- really comfortable seats and the bar staff are attentive and friendly and we were able to order drinks straight away. We were given a lovely table in the front section of the bar and the waitress was straight over to us as soon as we sat down to make sure we were ok for everything and to give the kids colours and paper. We had the platter to share for our starter which was a nice selection but everyhting was pretty much deep fried and a bit greasy but otherwise tasty. I had the duck for my main course which was absolutely delicious and my husband had an absolutely perfectly cooked sirloin steak. Another nice touch was that the kids food came out as soon as it was ready which meant no hungry kids and we could enjoy our meal, and the complimentary kids play area was brilliant! The staff were excellent- everything ran really smoothly and the waitress came over at least twice to make sure everything was ok. I didnt catch her name but I really must say she was lovely nothing was too much trouble for her and she always had a friendly smile on her face. Dessert was gorgeous too but absolutely HUGE we got one banoffi pie between the two of us and we still couldnt finish it! Maybe a cheaper price and smaller portions would be a better idea? One thing I didnt like was the price of drinks- pints of heineken were 4.50 each and cokes were 2.65 which is just extortionate compared to other resaurants. Overall we thought the elm tree was an excellent family reataurant with top quality food and service! We loved the food but I think it was the superb staff who really made our evening and we will definitely be paying a return visit! - SmileyFace, Ireland

Sex Not Specified My friends have told me about the Elm and after being there tonight I loved it. I had goats cheese starter with a mango chutney which was scrumptious! I followed this with the duck with an apricot & chesnut stuffing. My only let down was I would have loved cheese board to accompany our Punto Nino Merlot but other than that great food, great servce and wonderful interior! Will be going back again. - Sinead, Mdleton

Sex Not Specified Reading the two revies (latest updates) i felt i had to write to say those people prob not know good quality if it hit them in the face. The staff are extremley friendly and the food is fantastic .My favourite place ever for sunday lunch. I am so looking forward to seeing the NEW EXTENTION of the place. I would totally totally disagree with the reviews dated 18 mar and 14th may 08.Of course you are entittled to your opinion but to slate a place to that extent is ridicilous. Def worth dropping in to see for your self... - Karen, Midleton
