Had a very enjoyable Coffey break there with lovely scones. Second helpings of coffee were offered. Very attractive cafe/ Bistro. Staff are professional and efficient.

The food here is very tasty and the restaurant itself is beautifully decorated, a little tight on space upstairs but otherwise very nice. The staff were lovely and we were given a taster of the soup which was beautiful. Very interesting flavors and and beautiful high quality food, you won't be disappointed.

Lovely place. I recommend tables upstairs in a very nice room. We enjoyed a typical irish lunch mid afternoon.

Lovely bistrot on the main street of Athlone. Very friendly staff, and even though we only had a main dish, the owner gave us a complimentary amuse bouche of the tasty soup of the day. Delicious chicken main course, would definitely return here again.

This was so incredibly tasty that part of me wishes I never ate here as realistically I won't get back here again which means realistically I'll never get to experience this outstanding cuisine again. This restaurant has dining down to a fine art, even down to a simple gesture such as a complimentary soup sample went a long way in... More

Having ate here before and really enjoyed it, i was looking forward to enjoying a meal with my family. Alas, i was so disappointed with the menu. For a restaurant in the heart of Athlone, more imagination is needed. Also its a bit pricey. Staff are very nice and helpful.

Exactly what we were looking for in a pleasant location with excellent food and friendly service. Best meal we had all week in our Ireland vacation. Owner visited with each table multiple times, I told him I wish we lived here so we could try everything on their menu.

We got off the highway to get lunch and saw this on YELP, 4 reviews. It was packed full and after eating there we know why. It is probably a local favorite. Food was great and server delightful. When in Ireland again we'll be sure to make this one of our stops. Quaint town in the middle of Ireland.

Thank Ann0503
