Food atmosphere and staff were beyond expectations and made the night very enjoyable. Would've liked a little bit extra food with the steak I got but the side of sweet potato chips I ordered was divine and well worth the extra 4.50. Well worth the money regardless, will be coming back.

Overall a lovely experience, the setting is second to none. But, the service after staff changeover was pretty dismal, to be honest! Nobody approached our table after the main course. We had to beckon a staff member for every order thereafter, both in the restaurant and outside on the terrace. It was a bit of a nuisance! I would like to add that the staff who initially waited our table at 3pm to whenever they finished were excellent.

Dear Ann-Marie many thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us. I am glad to see that you had an enjoyable time here. It is disappointing that there was inconsistencies with service on this occasion, and I will personally follow up with the staff member in question to make sure that such lapses in service do not happen again.

Superb dining experience. Food was top quality, great selection of wines and the wait staff and hostess were very kind and attentive. Very impressed with vegetarian options. We had a pre dinner cocktail in the longue, lacked atmosphere and ambience, which was dissapointing given its a beautiful space. We finished with a drink in the bar unfortunately, we caught the bar tender at a bad time as he was quite rude and condescending. Overall positive experience in

MY wife got te venison which had a very small portion size, only for getting some different sides she said she would not have been full. I got the burger and it was ok, but only ok, not the quality meat i would have expected. Drink are at the expensive end for a Cork restaurant or bar which is why we only had two. Area is lovely but the quality of the food and prices lets it down
