“Had breakfast there for 5 days.”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Besides the buffet you could order off the menu (same price). I like that as I could pick and choose from both. I love lox and there were very generous with portion.

Huge complements to the chef - almost all 16 of us remarked that all 3 courses were delicious when we ate in this restaurant last Saturday night - I'd nearly have travelled back down again the next day for another salmon main course, and some more of that banoffi pie!

“steer clear”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

lovely restaurant, nice outside area, waitress could not be faulted, very friendly and accommodating unfortunately the food was the worst food we have ever had. we had booked the chervil as a special occasion months in advance for my parents 40th wedding anniversary, there were 10 of us. arrival was excellent and like i said the waitress was lovely. our starters were nice but unfortunately. half of us had finished ours before the other were served. the main meal arrived before id swallowed my last mouthful, which was not good, again the mains came out in dribs and drabs, now where to start, out of the 10 meals served only 1 was faultless. 2 went back and never came back out. leeks were rock hard, ribeye was either over cooked and tough as old boots or just a slab of fat. sauce missing from salmon.cold vegetables, carrot's were black on end. side orders arrived 25 minutes after mains. grease proof paper found underneath chicken. the list was endless. i must point out that sophie our waitress was most embarrassed and apologetic that our special occasion had been ruined. we gladly received a full refund of 400 euros. we were told that the chef that runs that menu did not work until 5pm and this is why is was so bad... no excuse, as we were offered that menu.i would certainly not recommend.

“A great alternative to pub food”
Reviewed 26 June 2013 via mobile

My friend and I needed a break from pub food, so we were really excited to run into this restaurant. Great waitress, she went next door to get us cocktails from Fitz's bar. The food was flavorful and delicious.

Reviewed 20 June 2013 via mobile

Really nice meal. Good quality food. Great service. Excellent "home" brew. Not cheap even given Irish prices.
