We had a great time - so good that we went back the next night. The food, atmosphere & staff can't be topped in my opinion- we will be back.

Food was very nice. The place was extremely busy which is a testament to the chef and owners. We had however issues with some of the food not being completely cooked and this issue was raised with one of the waiters. When done so the food was not replaced nor discount given for our meal. This put a black cloud on our otherwise perfect evening. I don't think this will prevent us from attending again. However we would have liked to have it acknowledged at the time. I am fully aware that it was height of the season and very busy on the night. Might I add the young lady that served us on the mezaneen was brilliant and it wasn't her the issue was raised with.

Service was patchy. We were a group of 9 and the restaurant was busy. I asked for bread and anchovies for the table as 6 of the group were v hungry (having completed the ring of Kerry cycle earlier)and we got 1 basket (smallish) of bread and no anchovies. We had to ask for some things a few times. I think the restaurant was just too busy at the time. We all thought the food, setting and atmosphere was great and we would definitely recommend and return

Excellent restaurant that I will go to again. If I had any slight criticism it is that the tables are too small to cope with all the tapas plates!

Food was absolutely superb especially the beef tapas and the chicken salad . The service from the staff was somewhat a bit disorganized and some looked confused when serving our table . Ideally in my opinion I think the same waiter/waitress should focus on one sitting/ customers rather than two or three serving the same table. Overall the food was delicious and we will return.

Hi Teresa, Thank you very much for your feedback. We are aware the night you were in for dinner service was a bit disjointed, we are currently training in new staff and we are working hard to iron out these types of issues going forward. I appreciate your comments, they help up grow, develop and improve the business. We are looking forward to seeing you soon. Kind Regards, Cliodhna

Tolle Location, sehr netter und aufmerksamer Service. Das Essen war sehr lecker, die Gambas ein Gedicht, die Kombi Chorizo mit Kartoffelpüree etwas ungewöhnlich.

An absolute gem in this little Irish town. Really transported us to the many similar occasions we have had in Spain. Shame it was our last night!
