This was an unexpected great find. The gluten free fish and chips were the best I’ve had in Ireland. Great customer service. My husband says they served the best steak sandwich he’s ever eaten.

Everything about our dining experience was exquisite. Every element in each dish was carefully thought out and executed wonderfully. Wine in particular was fantastic and the service was incredibly friendly without being overbearing. I can't wait to go back again!

We went with the intention of eating from the a lá carte menu. When we saw the choice on the early bird menu we were pleasantly surprised and chose to eat from it instead. We had a terrific meal and particularly enjoyed the chicken main course and the apple tart tatin. The service was excellent throughout.

Had a really good night. Being very picky, the service was a bit slow. Although the food was fantastic, another ladle of risotto would have gone down well. All said, we look to going back, the food was really good.

I think it is unfair to charge each person €3 when you bring your own birthday cake if you cut it.? Maybe a table charge of €10 or something. In fact no charge at all. If you go there for an occasion you will have a crowd which is going to eat a starter and main meal anyway.

Restaurant Response

Hi Lucy Thank you for your review. Regarding the charge for slicing a cake (of any size), as you are consuming food not produced on our premises, and which must be served by a member of staff on our crockery with our cutlery, and which then must be cleaned by another member of staff, we feel that it is necessary. Our menu provides many dessert options for celebrations.
