Called in off spec without a booking. Got the last table, the restaurant was buzzing for a Friday evening.food was delicious, service was attentive given how busy it was. Joined the loyalty scheme as we will certainly be back and this offers even better value!

The friendliest restaurant around. Wonderful greeting every time we visit. Food is excellent and good value for money. A little tucked out of the way behind the pharmacy on the main street but well worth taking the extra effort to find.

Interesting starters including good soup. Pizza base is thin and crispy. Pasta mains are all available in starter sizes which you can have as a starter or a main. This is great because then you are able to have a starter and dessert without feeling you've overeaten! Service is excellent and staff are patient and helpful. The atmosphere tends to... More

Last minute reservation for nine of us so no hassle there. Busy buzzy restaurant with young friendly staff. Food good pasta, pizza and grills. Daily specials (expensive I think). Service is good and atmosphere vibrant and noisy but not too loud. City style feel to it. Great for get togethers and teenage parties too

My boyfriend and I were down staying in Dunboyne Castle hotel for the weekend and rather than eat in the hotel we are here. The food was really lovely and the service was even better. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and I will definitely be back.

Im a neanderthal apparently for just saying a glass of any red 😊) We had prawn pil pil and brushetta fungi for starters. Very tasty. For mains we had a starter portion... More
