Very busy spot, constantly booked out - testament to the great food and service. Staff are very friendly and efficient. Great choices on menu - both adults and kids.

I've been here a number of times and have tried both tapas menu and the al carte menu. Both were extremely good. The seafood paella and patato bravos are to die for though! Very romantic and intimate atmosphere, candles on every table and a man playing Latino music on a guitar most nights. Reasonably priced and they do have special... More

So so disappointed in what was my favourite restaurant in Maynooth. I visited Picaderos Maynooth on Monday 15th May, my friend and I both had burgers. We asked for ketchup which arrived promptly in nice little dishes.. How shocked we were to see the bill charging us €1.50 EACH for what was no more than a large tablespoon of ketchup.... More

Hello Mary J, Firstly many thanks for visiting us recently and also for taking the time to share your experience. I think there may be some confusion here; we don't charge for any standard condiments in Picaderos, be it ketchup, mayonnaise, vinegar, olive oil, salt & pepper etc. We only ever charge when a customer requests one of our in...

No need for advertising here! As you walk past the restaurant the amazing smell draws you in. Arrived at 7.45pm on Friday evening and the restaurant was jammed with people devouring food, lots of laughter, great atmosphere. I was looking for a table for five for 10pm and not surprisingly the restaurant was completely booked for the entire evening. Richard... More

I've been to this restaurant a few times and have always had a very tasty meal. The staff are very friendly and the service is great too. If you are a big steak fan make sure you try their fillet and for desert you must have the churros, I could eat them all day! :-D

After finding the place (location on map was misleading) we were surprised how busy the place was on Thursday. Fortunately they were able to seat us - nice ambience if a little dark but busy and great menu choice with many options allowing for vegetarian variations Good tasty food efficient friendly staff and overall pleasing environment - probably more for...

The food and the atmosphere are 5/5 added bonus was the man on the guitar. The portions were decent. A little pricey however, but I suppose you don't mind paying for good food. Only complaint the staff are a little slow off the mark when it came to taking orders etc but nothing major. We will be back!!

Have been here a couple of times now - most recently last weekend. Had the calamari to start followed by a lovely steak. Cooked to perfection. Great value too. If in Maynooth area (we were staying at Carton House) definitely worth a visit!!
