The over all experience was positive apart from the red meat alternatives for my partner - wagyu beef was replaced with diced beetroot, ham fat for - nothing and the most disappointing of all, wild deer for a two inch piece of roasted cauliflower. very disappointing from her side considering the price and and status of the restaurant.

Astounding experience and so well worth the wait though the final course (the "Sweet") was just one course too much for me. Elaine at front of house was quietly excellent . However the stand out feature for me was that the lady who was announcing our courses noticed before the whiskey and lemon verbena sorbet course arrived, that one of our party was not drinking and she offered him a non alcoholic sorbet. Such attention to detail is rare in the extreme. We will be back...if we can get a reservation.

We love this restaurant. The atmosphere is relaxing. The staff are very attentive without being intrusive. The food really lives up to its Michelin star - intense flavours burst from every mouthful and at the end of the meal you feel immensely satisfied without being bloated. Can't recommend it highly enough.

The two young ladies serving us deserve al the stars in the sky. They made the evening to a very pleasant experience. The quality of the food was outstanding but all too small portions to enjoy the tastes, hardly more than a spoonful each time. There was a lot of nearly nothing.... Even though the quality and presentation could not be faulted, there were no tastes that I will remember. Also value for money at 130 Euros per person for food and wine is much more expensive than some of the top restaurants I visited. Having said all this, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Hello Chestnut and thank you for a wonderful experience. I left a 5 star review on Trip Advisor the next day. Your idea of a gastronomic meal is a delight. A waltz of discovery guided by your splendid girls. Yes, we're telling all our friends about you and yes, we'll be back when next in Ireland.
