    The food court on the right upstairs looked practically ready to open when I was in there last week... any firm word on what's going into the various new units now?

    Nothing except chopped
    Is the food court a bit of a flop?

    They are charging ridiculous prices for those glass retail units in there. The smallest one works out at just about 17k a year

    pales in comparison too food courts in other shopping centres

    wheres the KFC, Nandos, Burger King, Pizza bar etc

    General cafe/food like kylemore probably a good fit for the demand.Kfc out dunmore road, pizza hut opening .I wouldn't be bothered personally about other two, much rather see something different like chopped then a mediocre burger place.there will be other announcements too as more space than before.having said that I wouldn't be surprised to see BK back in there upstairs, it was always busy in previous place.

    I'd prefer it if a branch of 'Milano' was opening in Waterford and not a Pizza Hut.

    Chopped is a place you will go once and never return. €6 for a basic sandwich.

    The main premise of chopped is salads. I dont there are sandwiches on the menu.

    You might be able to get a wrap. But its 90% chopped salads.

    I would go close to once a week in Dublin. Its a great healthy option for lunch or dinner on the go, an alternative to the sandwich.

    Id prefer a local independant shop that does a nice pizza,there's less than a handful of decent places in town to get a good pizza..

    I'd imagine the high prices that City Square are looking for, there would very little chance of an independent and local restaurant going in there.

    Also if they are not getting anyone to fill those small units across from JD Sports in December, then they'll have no hope filling it from January onwards.

    Dissapointed that Kylemore are going back there of true. It's literally just a rearrangement of the furniture - Carrig Donn going in to where Burger King were. This is it's third move in as many years. Hoping that it's a big store going into the main new unit.

    Burzza do a mean pizza, as does Antichi Sapori, espresso. I suppose for day time there's not much though

    I know someone that looked at the unit next to holland and Barrett

    48k rent
    14k rates
    18k service charge


    They just laughed.

    Ginos open during day, Italian on quay and an Italian on high street right outside city square, all nice.we're ok for Italian options IMO

    And that unit has been empty for about 6-7 years now since Next left. Imagine if they got a bit more realistic with the price of where the unit is - under the main stairs, and very little window display - that they could have had a tenant there.

    And Emilianos two minutes away too. I love all those restaurants mentioned but as someone else said you need the deeper pockets of multinationals sometimes to keep a place afloat.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,027 ✭✭✭ fricatus

    La Fontana (near Jordan's) I'm guessing.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,366 ✭✭✭ dartboardio


    Oh completely forgot about La Fontana.

    Been there, nice food but a bit pricey. €81 euro for 2 courses each and 2 glasses wine


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,125 ✭✭✭ JohnC.


    So, Chopped is open. It's funny how empty the upstairs section is with just one small unit open.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,366 ✭✭✭ dartboardio


    Ummmmm, guys.. I don't wanna be the one to say it.. but yeah, Chopped and all.. looks great, but all empty besides that? I honestly feel like they've been closed for a year and spent hundreds of thousands creating new lovely toilets and corridors :-(

    Well they better find some other restaurants then...

    Anyone else hear Kylemore are moving back into part of it?

    I hear that before they closed to make way for the food hall, but haven't hear much about it since.

    Kylemore Cafe as a brand is now gone, but the company behind Kylemore has several brands and could fill a food hall on their own
