Had the BBQ wings, fries and a burger. Everything was excellently presented and tasted great, absolutely faultless. It was very busy there when we visited but the staff were well able to cope with the busy crowd. Looking forward to visiting again. I've only ever heard great things about this place.

The menu was very good, specials of the day very impressive, staff very friendly and efficient, ambiance very good. Have to say the Monk fish "special" was exceptional, large amount of fish and veg. Would definately go back if in the area and recommend if you are too.

Beautiful food, great atmosphere and great service. We were a group of 6. We all ordered different dishes and each one was sublime. We ordered desserts but none of us could finish them - they were huge. Would definitely return if I was back in Ballincollig and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting.

Last minute decision for a late lunch on a Friday afternoon, thankful to get a space even at 3 o clock always a good crowd but a good atmosphere. Waitresses were so friendly and food came fairly fast. I was indecisive about what to get but so happy with my order. I was afraid it would be spicy as I... More

Absolutely ideal. We did the ballincollig loop walk today. We wanted a nice lunch after the walk. We called into 2 other restaurants that we found were either not child friendly or too upmarket. Don't take this comment lightly. Once we arrived in the door we were greeted by a lovely waitress who guided us to the left. There were... More
