We visited here last Saturday night as part of a large group. I thought with the group being so big, and everything ordering different things the service would suffer. How wrong I was, everyone's meal came out at the same time, and each meal was piping hot and served to perfection. All of the pasta dishes I tasted were some... More

Despite being very busy for Valentine's day we were made very welcome and service was excellent. Lovely set menu on offer if you wanted it. Cookies and ice cream dessert was highlight.

amazing service, and amazing food all round. I have been here multiple times, the pasta (gluten free), the steak and the chicken are all amazing. Could not fault the food in any way. Served quickly. And early bird menu before 7 oclock, 3 courses for 23 euro not bad!
