Husband and wife team, Feargal and Fiona O'Donnell work alongside Dee to ensure our customers have an enjoyable experience.
We had a group of 8, one vegetarian and one coeliac, there was limited options for the vegetarian but the server asked if she was happy so it felt like they would have prepared off menu if she had requested. The coeliac was well catered for and everyone enjoyed the meal. The vegetarian main course was just vegetables though and could have done with a bit extra protein.
Great service and food.
Delicious food. Friendly staff. Great value for money. Loved it!!
Lovely time, well looked after and superb food. Thanks!
My first time eating here and it did not disappoint. I was visiting athlone for the night. There were six of us for a girlie weekend away. The staff were so welcoming , attentive , informative and efficient. The food was fabulous ...so tasty , well presented and we were served in a timely manner. There was a lovely , relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant. I would highly recommend it. Thanks for a lovely evening
Food was excellent but felt very rushed. Waitress was very direct in telling us if we wanted anything off early bird menu we had 5 minutes to decide. Everytime we finished a course the plates were taken away far too quickly and on to the next course. We ordered a second bottle of wine before dessert and weren't advised at any stage that they wanted the table back within a short time frame. We were very rushed in the end. Had barely finished when the manager put the bill on our table and said he wanted table back. Would go back for the food & atmosphere but dont go here if you are hoping a relaxed non rushed meal.
I enjoyed my meal but I think the portion of veg and potatoes was a bit small . Noise levels were a little too high which takes from the dining experience. That being said I would still recommend the restaurant to friends and family .
Thanks John, we will take your comments on board.
Thank you Sinead!
Great restaurant food 100% Looking forward to returning.👌👌
Gorgeous food and wine
One of the finest dining experiences I have ever had, I booked a table for 5 to celebrate my graduation after I heard good things about it and was not dissapointed. The ambiance of the place and customer service were truely excellent. Every single dish was a piece of art - their attention to detail and ensure the highest standard of every little item on the plate is extraordinary! Prices are a bit expensive but worth every penny - top quality ingredients, big portions, and should I mention out of this world steak! The owner Feargal was a real host, attending every guest and greating every idividual as they came in the door. Outstanding. Will definitely be coming back again
Excellent. The food was superb and the staff were so lovely... We will be back!
Overall our party of four enjoyed a pleasant evening. Our two criticisms would be that our server poured the remaining wine of our bottle into just two of the glasses. I presume she expected us to order another bottle and it was a good job we didn't as we were asked to leave our table to make room for another booking even though we did not do an early bird.
We had a fantastic night, the food and service was excellent. Loved the potato bread...
Fabulous food and great service with just the right amount of time between courses. Great value for money too. I will definitely recommend and definitely be back. The doughnuts were to die for !!!
When the doors opened the cold breeze felt very uncomfortable, needs a nice cosy waiting area.
Was seated where a cool breeze came from door way. Dealt with a problem very swiftly and appropriately
Had an amazing family meal after a graduation ceremony. From the moment we entered the staff were so friendly and helpful, great choice on the menu, lovely selection of breads. Everything from the starters to dessert was delicious. Highly recommend. Will definitely be returning.
We had a lovely evening, with delicious food and excellent staff. Thank you so much, we will be back.
Excellent as always
