great drinks and food. Service was pretty speedy and the meals are moderately priced. Two cocktails, a couple of starts and a split meal for less than 50. Staff was warm and friendly and pleased to answer our questions about the menu.

Not as good as it was. We were in this restaurant 2 yrs ago and the food was truly amazing. On our visit to Kenmare we heard it wasn't as good but decided to try it ourselves. It's not. Staff are wonderful. Lovely ambience!

Wonderful restaurant that all the family enjoyed. Great food and great choice. Service was excellent. Catered for gluten-free options etc. You have to be prepared to pay more than average prices, but the food and experience is worth it.

We both decided on fish. Amuse Bouche was a lovely touch to get the meal started..lovely warm bread and crushed olives. Scallops were really sweet and nicely cooked. Black sole with brown butter was good, but the flood of melted butter? on the plate was rather tasteless and made everything float in liquid. The fish itself was lovely, desserts were... More

We had a delicious meal early evening. The selection of starters, mains and desserts was very interesting. They were happy for me to have two starters to leave room for Tarte Tartin which was beautiful. The service was friendly and professional. The restaurant had a great atmosphere and was clearly a popular venue.

The food in this restaurant is excellent. We had Risotto, prawn and lobster sausage, steak, and chocolate fondant accompanied by a beautiful bottle of spanish tempranillo house wine. The staff are very pleasant and attentive. I would suggest booking ahead as this is a busy restaurant with quality food . I am looking forward to returning here.
