“What a find!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Really enjoyed lunch here on Monday. It was quiet enough but the service was good. My partner had trio of seafood open sandwich with chips, & I had Corned Beef dinner with mash and cabbage. Both were delicious, finished off with tobelerone cheescake...YumYum. Can't fault this place. Will be back.

“Super Steaks & Proper Good Portions!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Visited here twice on a recent weekend in Swords. Not a huge menu but I always fine a few things sourced and cooked to a high standard are better than an exhaustive list of blah food. I had the Chicken Fajita on the first night and whilst it wasn't to the spicy standard of a Chiquitos' it was very good. Plenty of fresh chicken and peppers in a yummy sauce with salad, wraps and various accompaniments. The second time I had the Rump Steak with chips which was very good, thick and juicy with well cooked chips and a crunchy salad. Also the pepper sauce which came with it was amazing. The portion sizes are great and two could easily share a main if you are not super hungry. Its also a fun venue suitable for kids and adults alike with heaps of room.
