  • 5 star review  Absolutely loved Railways Cafe the only issue was the restroom... only one ladies toilet operating for the entire Cafe and it does get extremely crowded. Other than that, great vibe, great people, friendly staff and amazing variety of cocktails and music

    5 star review  It's a very beautiful setting with amazing food and drinks. The staff is very friendly and their service is exceptional. Inevitably recommended when looking for a good vibe. And they do have a play area for the kids so it is ideal for family outings.

    5 star review  Very fun and vibey pub, usually with live music on a Saturday afternoon. Food and drinks are very good, and the decor is something different but great. Definitely worth visiting. The surrounding area is just a little dodgy, but there are a few car guards to watch out for you

    5 star review  Absolutely adored this little gem in Irene. Beautiful people, beautiful interior and the vibe was incredible. I thoroughly enjoyed the pizza's they serve there. Nothing was skimpy, and it was super tasty. I would 10/10 come back here and definitely recommend Railways. It felt like a little community more than a bar/restaurant and that was what really got me!

  • 5 star review  Great atmosphere, good vibe, and decent staff. At night it can turn into a good club/bar vibe. Drinks are decently priced, and food is worth more than what you pay for. Parking is a bit of a worry, so dont take/leave anything of value inside your ride.

    4 star review  Outlandish and eclectic venue with a huge variety of seating places, each one takes you to another part of the world. The burgers are always fresh and delicious. And you can count on the bar to keep you comfy and refreshed. The music is varied and always a surprise.

    4 star review  Beautiful hidden gem with a stunning outside area. Always a fun vibe and one of my favourite places to hang out with friends for drinks. However, and apparently I am the only one to say this, but I'm really not a fan of the food. The last few times I was there the pizza was overcooked and they weren't exactly generous with toppings. The menu unfortunately is very limited. Great place for drinks, but not so much for food

    5 star review  Ensure to make a reservation, we were lucky to get a seat. The environment is open and friendly, everyone is there to relax and have fun. Prices are reasonable and Shisha can be rented This is a little gem in Irene!!!
