Great food and nice helpful staff. The decor is nice too! We came for breakfast (poached eggs with avocado x2 and a full Irish) and enjoyed it so much that we came back for lunch. On our return we came with someone with some serious food allergies and the staff were happy to check with the kitchen and make some... More

Menu has a great selection of different foods, but all on lighter side. It gets packed at lunch time, so be aware and may want to come a little early or later. Also, closes at around 5, I think...

Food was great. My concern was with the staff member serving coffees and cakes on Sunday 27th Nov. He was wearing plastic gloves but was continuously putting his hands through his hair with the plastic gloves on and them picked up fruit pieces to add to drinks on several occasions without changing gloves or even using cutlery. I would expect... More

Christmas shopping day with my guy! We decided to eat at Avoca as we hadn't been in a while. Lovely atmosphere. We got a table straight away and were served immediately. A lamb burger with halloumi cheese served on a brioche type bun. It came with delicious fries, hummus and tzatziki. Falafel on a bed of spiced chickpeas and like... More

Very nice place for breakfast, brunch, lunch or just tea and a scone. The place can get very busy but well worth the wait. Very good service and we actually visited twice.

We went to Avoca to get some items as gifts. It was overwhelming with choices. We purchased quite a few Irish woolen items (scarves, socks, throws) and while they were a bit pricey, I found the quality worth it. We visited the restaurant on the top floor. We missed breakfast by a few minutes and we weren't in the mood... More

Avoca has a their own recipe book with simple dishes. They sell it fresh and simply served. The salads are very tasty and made of good quality ingredients. There is choice of hot and cold food and you must try their home baked bread ;) In Avoca there is a massive choice of cakes and biscuits again like home made.... More

My wife and I (and other family members) have eaten here many times over the past 10 or more years but just couldn't wait to write again after our latest visit on Sunday last Nov 13. Always packed and always with a terrific buzz we waited no more than 2-3 minutes for a table. Food was sensational, we were starving,... More

I loved Avoca. The handcrafts and locally made woollens are of the highest quality--I went home with several gorgeous blankets and wraps! The restaurant on the top floor serves wonderful food--I can definitely recommend the lamb burger. A nice place to recover from a morning's sightseeing...
