Back again to the Avon Ri! Cosmetic changes since we were last here, the front of the building now looks amazing. The downstairs is now the main area for the bar & resturant. The food as always was superb & now has an ice cream bar. Lovely staff! Great place for activities, real child friendly!

I have had a week of eating in different restaurants between Father's Day, entertaining visitors and a birthday to celebrate. We chose to go to the Avon Ri this week as I had been a few weeks ago and had pizza and chips on the terrace and it was really nice. This week was the same we wanted pizza, we got pizza and chips and it was very good. We have not tried any other dishes so cannot comment. The new restaurant layout is very nice and the staff were nice on they day. However to keep it going in the right direction please listen to the reviews as I can relate to Denise Duffy as on last visit we got food but no cutlery and no plates and the clean up after people needs to be more efficient. Also a staple potatoes veg and meat dish would be nice on the menu. I would suggest sugar should be in the small packs as the lumps in sugar bowl are not hygienic. When people left nearby table the birds were in with their beak picking up the sugar. You have invested in the decor now invest in good enthusiastic staff.

We had a table booked for Father's Day. We have been there many times before but unfortunately we won't be going again. The restaurant was dirty, we had to ask for cutlery and napkins and when we asked for side plates, they brought us dirty plates. The floor was filthy and when people finished their meal and left, the tables and floor weren't cleaned before the next people were seated. The menu had changed and my father ended up eating fish and chips. The battered cod had oil dripping off the plate. The only neat option was beef or burgers. Don't know if management had changed since our last visit. We told the staff on the day but they took no notice. We went elsewhere for coffee and dessert. Customer service was lacking and the staff seemed disorganised. Beautiful setting but disappointed with the cleanliness and service.

We didn't stay here, but stopped by for a break. The place is popular as it was difficult to get parking. Lovely place for a break though. The restaurant/café had a terrace with a fantastic view of the lake and the Wicklow mountains. The food was standard, but nice. The staff were nice too and they have a playground. Very pleasant place to stop by.

The scenery from the decking is breathtaking however we had previously stopped going to Avon Ri due to the poor service level. Last Sunday after a walk around the lake we said we "would chance it". I immediately noticed the improved attentiveness of the staff and all seemed to go out of their way to help insure we had seats, drinks etc. Having seen this we decided to eat, again we were delighted with the service and quality of food.
Laura and Molly deserve particular praise for their effort and service level.
We will be back again.
