The staff, the atmosphere, and above all, the food was spectacular. I got the Root Vegetable & Lentil Shepards Pie. Probably the best vegetarian meal I have ever tasted. I can't wait to go back.

What a wonderful find. A fantastically high quality of restaurant all round. Visited with parents on a busy summer evening. Staff were helpful and attentive, decor is very tasteful and the quality of food satisfied the whole group. Thanks for a lovely night!

One of our best meals in Ireland. Our group had the schnitzel and the beef bourguignon and both were delicious! Service was very friendly and prompt and the wine list was well done. We loved our evening there.
