Many thanks for your positive review. We are very proud of the fact that we the only restaurant this side of Dublin to age and butcher beef in-house for over 30 days. There is a cost involved as there is approximately a 20% weight loss, thats why restaurants dont age their own beef coupled with high refrigeration costs. It really... More

This was my first time in Monaghan and I was impressed with the universally friendly and positive people I met here. If you want to experience the Monaghan welcome, great staff who are well trained and professional while adjusting the menu to suit our requirements, then go to Andy's. The food and wine menus were great; good quality and well... More

Many thanks for the review. To avoid confusion and disappointment, a slight correction - I have 60 gins, mind you the way I'm going it probably soon will be closer to that figure. Premium Rum and Bourbons are now starting to feature and they too are proving really popular. Regards Kein More

Have lasting memories of a really scrumptious meal last week in Andys. Was staying in a local hotel but fancied dining out. Was so pleased with the relaxed friendly ambience of the place not to mention the perfectly cooked high quality food. Then a llovely conversation ensued with Aisling and Sean over coffee and we reluctantly vacated the premises before... More

Philo, Much appreciated! You would nearly think we were talking about two different businesses based on what has happened here in the last week or so! I'm all for freedom of expression and encourage it. I also think that restaurants should first be given an opportunity to put things right if there is an issue - as opposed to a... More

My wife and I dined two nights in a row in Andy's. On both nights the food was of an excellent quality and generous portions.The first night was relatively quiet in the restaurant and we had a lovely conversation with Aisling & Sean which almost ran to midnight. They were the most convivial of company. On the second night the... More

Many thanks for your kind review. I didn't get a chance to talk to you last Thursday as you rightly pointed out it was very busy - great to see it on a Thursday!

Visited here recently and was really looking forward to it. Ordered soup which was fine. For my main course I ordered the grilled chicken Monaghan with the sauce served separately. Unfortunately all I got on the plate was the grilled chicken fillet and the small serving of sauce! Veg came as a side dish. No potatoes or anything else. What... More

Aoife You may have missed the "Customer Guarantee" published on the front page of my menu which basically states that if you are not happy with any part of our food or service we will do our best to put it right.

Recently dined in the restaurant which has been refurbished. The decor was disappointing which was not good for first impressions. The meal was average. Service was fair. Atmosphere I felt was also lacking. More for the older diner maybe I felt.

Never really gonna happen was it! On first reading your review I thought that offered little in way of helping me improve my business. Then I had a light bulb moment "A picture says a thousand words". We have been so popular since re-opening that we have not taken any pictures of the newly decorated bar and restaurant.

We dropped in for food recently. Staff seemed disorganised, ordered drinks twice before finally being served. Ordered battered fish and sea bass main courses. Sea bass was ok rather than good. Battered fish was cooked in oil that tasted as if it hadn't been changed in quite some time and was past its good quality date. Had chips with the... More
