€7 Set menu with glass of wine was ok but could we have a more professional waiter/waitress appearance even if we were early entries.The appearance of 1st floor washing on the line does nothing to encourage entry.

A small family restaurant with fresh and genuine food. They cook the food whilst you wait and the prices are very reasonable. Small restaurant with a big heart.
