Furze Bush (The)
The Furze Bush is located on a corner in Limerick's Georgian quarter, close to the city centre. You will be charmed and delighted by the experience of eating here; the interior resembles an 18th-century drawing room. The ambience is just right, aided by the subtle lighting and range of old photographs on the walls. The bistro, which is a bustling café by day, transforms into a sophisticated dining destination by night. The menu admirably caters for most tastes, though a friend recently bemoaned the lack of red meat options. The vegetarian options are quite unusual and there are a good many to choose from. Overall, this is an intelligent menu that is authentic and suits the restaurant's atmosphere. Prices are akin to those of most reasonable restaurants; lunch is less expensive than dinner.
I usually go for lunch and look for the daily special as the ingredients suit the season, weather, time of year etc.
The food has not disappointed yet but I wish they had more variety on the regular menu.
My wife rates their scone and jam combo as likely the best (and biggest!) in Limerick. Desserts are good too.
