(Y) Nice personell and modern feeling, albeit sterile and with a lunch restaurant feeling. Check opening times before going in an evening, closed when I first tried to have a dinner... More

I go there with my friends regularly and we are never disappointed! Food is always very tasty and fresh, staff very friendly and helpful, and prices adequate to quality. Also, you can eat hearty lunch for less than €10! Overall experience - 5 stars or more!

I have eaten at this restaurant many times and have to say it is consistently lovely. The food is always good and the service is always friendly. Value is great too. Some of the sauces are really delicious - especially the one served with the steak.

Ate here last night with a voucher for 2 courses and a glass of wine. The food was lovely and fresh, and well prepared. Baked salmon with huge prawns and a beautifully cooked fillet steak. It was our first time to eat there but would definitely go back. There was a nice buzz about the place and friendly staff.
