Service was good, nice ambience but food was very average. We all got steak. Limited veg, chips undercooked chunky lacking sauces.

Another good meal at one of my favourite restaurants in Kinsale. Delicious brown bread (with a bit too much salt that night though). I enjoy their steak with bernaise sauce and I finish with meringue and chocolate sauce. I am not into fish, but they have plenty to choose from. The early bird option is a good and popular choice.
