This place has been closed for over 3 months. It should be removed as it's very misleading for all. Why has it not been removed. It's closed no point in having this listed

Why is this restaurant end rated at number 2? It's closed and you are providing incorrect information at trip advisor allowing people to go here to find it closed? Give the other good servicing restaurants a chance?

Last time I ate here..before Christmas 2014, it was lovely although the restaurant was cold. Sorry to hear it has closed but it has.. so remove it as #1!! Misleading for potential visitors to Athlone.

Trip advisor should remove this place. It's closed about 2 months now. It's pointless having it here & especially as most of his reviews where made up by friends. It's all false
