Good selection on the menu. Bit pricey but worth it for something different. Situated along the Main Street in Newcastle with ample parking at night

I cannot recommend this restaurant enough . The food is superb . Our dishes were all cooked perfectly & nicely seasoned - each mouthful a real treat . The cocktails are all so well put together and heaven in a glass . It is staffed by a team of friendly, knowledgeable & welcoming people.

Possibly one of the highest quality restaurants in County Down. Have visited on several occasions and have been more impressed after each. Staff are pleasant and attentive, the price is more than reasonable for the quality you receive. Will definitely be returning.
