Comfortable stylish decor. Friendly capable staff who are always happy and chatty. The service was fantastic and the food was faultless from a real crowd pleasing menu that delivers on taste, quality and price.

We ate here for the first time on a thundery Friday night to celebrate a birthday. The place was packed, great atmosphere but lacking in elbow room, staff had to be very careful clearing away dishes to the kitchen.
We were offered the early bird menu which was great for a Friday night: 2 courses & coffee for €22.95 or 3 courses & coffee for €25.95. Excellent value given the quality, quantity & innovative twists.

For starters, there was a choice of pork belly, soup of the day, fried brie bites & marinated chicken & feta Flatbread. We opted for the secret recipe chicken wings with lime creme fraiche & the steamed Irish mussels with smoked bacon & cider cream. Very good.
For mains, there was a choice of taco board with chicken, duck & pork tacos; duck confit; salmon with wilted greens; 8oz beef burger & honey & lemon supreme of chicken. We both opted for the 8oz fillet steak with sautéed onions & chips (supplement of €5.50 on each steak), cooked to perfection & melt in the mouth. Definitely recommend, we were impressed!
For desserts, there was a choice of baileys cheesecake; sticky toffee pudding & selection of sorbet. We opted for the limoncello parfait with frozen raspberries (very good) & the Coole Swan chocolate mousse in a cup with homemade spoon shaped biscuit. I tasted the chocolate mousse which was excellent. I regretted not ordering this. When we return, I will opt for this!! We shared a bottle of Merlot for €26 approx.
Overall, we were really impressed with the meal, lots of choice, great quality & value & efficient service. Keep being innovative with the menu, it was refreshing!!
