We were here for a girls night out. We all ordered something different, fish cakes , meat platter, pork belly and nacho's. All were delicious. Staff were very helpful and friendly. It's a lovely spot. Will definitely be returning.

Nice bar but thought food was overpriced. Staff were nice but thought menu was very limited. Got the sliders but thought they were very bland. OK for snacks but don't go if you're hungry

Hadn't been here in about 2 months but glad to see that things are still as fantastic as ever! !! We had the fish platter with bravas to share followed by the orzo pasta and sliders. Yummy strawberry daqaris. Staff are super friendly and service really quick. Best spot in town. I won't wait another 2 mths this time!!!

Food and service is exceptional. The chow down is to die for should be on more! Definitely my top pick in Dundalk for tapas and reasonably priced
