One will never be disappointed in this charming restaurant. The cooking is imaginative & fresh. Here is an escape from the dreaded panini or tasteless wrap. I would go more frequently if the parking was not so difficult to find. We had open sandwiches from the daily specials board & the best flat white in Drogheda. There are always fresh... More

The food is very nice but extremely expensive. The wait staff really let it down though. I was in early (as in the only one in the place) and was given a terrible table. When I asked about the specials, I was informed "there are no specials -- everything is special!" which I'm sure was meant in jest but came... More

Nice little restaurant in the centre of drogheda. Very nice personel. Great cook. Entourage was also really nice. And the desserts were to die for. If you're in the neighborhood you really should try this restaurant.

Loved it. One of the nicest dinners of our Ireland tour and what a way to finish our holidays. Chef did a lovely tomato pasta for our son. Rosa went with fried halloumi to start followed by baked sea trout. I had the smoked salmon on potato cakes and the lamb kofta. Both were excellent and just enough room for... More

Great place for lunch or dinner. Great fresh food with a refreshing menu, something that's rare today in the era of burgers with everything . Friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. A gem in Drogheda.

We had dinner at the kitchen and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The food was fresh and the service was very attentive. The restaurant is child friendly as our two year old girl was a welcome addition. The prices were reasonable for both food and alcohol. So far this had to be the best meal of our short stay in Ireland... More

I've been to the kitchen before. Many years ago and it impressed me then. This was my first visit for an evening meal. We arrived early to a quiet restaurant, but not lacking in atmosphere. Service was very attentive and friendly. To start I had the chorizo and beetroot salad to start and my partner had the fried goats cheese... More
