It’s no exaggeration to say that Freddy’s Restaurant has been the backbone of good eating in Limerick city for many years. Liz Phelan and her team offer a distinctive, generous, vividly real conception of modern Irish food, food that is both soulful and satisfying, unpretentious and earthy.
It’s a conception of bistro food and service that they understand and orchestrate perfectly, from the welcoming, clubby style of the dining room with its ageless appeal, to dishes that always manage to be exactly what you want to eat, served in exactly the way you want to eat them.
The team don’t try to reinvent the culinary wheel, their ambitions instead focused on perfecting and polishing it to a glossy perfection, through classic dishes such as fish cakes with caper aioli; honey and soy pork belly with fennel salad; duck confit with black cherry sauce; hake with lemon pea risotto, and superltive sweet things like chocolate bomb with warm salted caramel sauce, and lemon tart with fresh berries.
Freddy’s Restaurant endures and thrives because the team are devoted to making sure everyone has the best time. Smart, friendly service, a gracious and cocooning ambience, and great wines seal the deal on the star of Limerick city.
