So much work and attention obviously goes into the preparation of these dishes. We don't mind paying a little extra for quality products. It is so rare nowadays to come across a restaurant that cares about what they serve to their customers.

I had a full Irish breakfast, as well as coffee. Both were really good, and would like to revisit this place.

We found this restaurant by accident. The immediate feeling was one of being welcomed. We were given somewhere to sit for a few minutes until a table became free. Lunch started with an amuse-bouche which set the tone for the rest of our simple meal....More
