Seriously well thought-out food, from the flavours and texture, to the presentation (even the colour of the plates!). The food was a really pleasant surprise and the place has a warm atmosphere.

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening - despite being crowded by GAA final on TV, staff, decor and food were excellent and no more expensive than poor version nearby.

My sister & I had lunch here when passing through. Staff friendly & efficient. My only suggestion would be to slightly increase the portion size of the chips.

Had a fabulous meal in the Riverfront. Very busy but great service. Nice choice on the menu. Nice atmosphere, able to have a private conversation with just the right amount of background noise. Food was very good, particularly the snickers dessert! Will be back

I have visited this restaurant often both on business and with my family. We visited early in the month after a trip to The zoo. I have to say there was a serious issue with flies I did not eat my meal as they landed...More

Had an amazingly medium cooked steak sandwich. Nice and pink in the middle. 🐄 My GF had a stunning sea bass with crab bon bons. Very cheekily I stole some. Guinness is cold and creamy. 🍺 would highly recommend.

Quite frankly you comment is hard to believe . Its impossible to prevent flies from entering the premises and perhaps there are more around than normal with the hot temperatures we have been recently experiencing . There are UV fly killers installed on the premises....More

It is just five minutes up the road in Virginia (the hotel is on the outskirts of Virginia) Unless you like a long walk you would need to drive to it. It is a very nice walk however if you are feeling energetic.
