Located at Plassey House at the University of Limerick, The East Room Restaurant is a fabulous addition to the Limerick culinary scene in every aspect. A short stroll from the University Concert Hall, pre theatre menus, lunches and weekend evening dining are all available. Head chef Derek Fitzpatrick, has brought many years of experience from establishments such as The Treasury Restaurant, Dromoland Castle and Les Gairmandais to Plassey House to provide the fine dining experience that Limerick truly deserves. The elegance of the East Room, recently refurbished, provides a private ambience that enhances the menus prepared using the finest of local ingredients while the Armitage Room is ideal for private parties of 16 or less.
Dining here is not just about the food, which is truly delicious it is also an experience – one we will be delighted to have again and again. It feels exclusive without being pretentious. The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere, the juxtaposition of the setting and the music (house music) which made it a relaxed experience.
The menu is flawless, every dish was excellent but the brill really rocked the show for me. Each presentation was creative, aroma- intoxicating, flavour- a true delight to the palate. The servers, were professional, knowledgeable, and attentive without being intrusive. I am not a real dessert person but the dessert was incredibly creative and heavenly!
The restaurant sports a quiet elegance with tables well-spaced for privacy.
The room is relaxing and inviting, a very warm welcome upon entry. When looking at the menu, it is not overpriced, considering the quality of the food and the total dining experience, and very nice selection of wine.
This restaurant would be fantastic for a luxury girly lunch, a private business lunch or special weekend dinner date, it would be a great choice for when a special occasion comes, be it an engagement, birthday or if you just want to bask in wonderful food and good company. I wouldn’t bring children here though as I think it would spoil the atmosphere for patrons.
