Good home cooking

Dinner was good but not fantastic, yes home-made, yes freshly made and no doubt made with love but for the price, I expected a lot more and at a higher standard. Customer service is part of the experience of dinning out for me and I found the service a little disorganised and scattered. The staff... read more

Had some lunch here recently and while I did enjoy it, I didn't leave particularly full especially for what we paid. I did find it somewhat overpriced. We waited for quite a while for someone to appear in order for us to pay at the end which was a pity as customer service is high on my list of priorities,... More

Stunning cafe & gardens. Greeted by two lovely dogs in the garden just so chilled and doing their met & greet job. Decor of the hippy, eastern type - Namaste statue to welcome you in. Outside under the canopy looked lovely, even a shawl to wrap around you hung over chair. Seaweed baths available plus accomodation if required. Now to... More

Nice restaurant but have to say the three meals (plus one kiddies) represented very poor value. 7.50 for a baby bowl of vegetarian pasta is about as poor value as I've ever encountered. 20 for vegetarian curry seemed very overpriced as did 6.50 for a small glass of wine. When I ordered a beer I was brought a Hefeweisen which... More

We have had two almost identical reviews about the prices of our food, for identical vegetarian dishes that usually receive rave reviews . The Firebird curry is sweet potato, chickpea, fruit & tofu, slow cooked in coconut, lime and freshly roasted whole spices. It is served with organic wild rice, a sweet caramelized carrot & dahl pate and a garden... More

The food is good but at 20 euro for a veg curry or veg bake I have to say this is way over priced. If it had been better value I would recommend this restaurant but these prices are crazy for what we got. The place was empty when we were there and this was a Saturday evening in June.... More

I can't remember eating better vegetarian meals anywhere. Delicious, substantial and beautiful. After superb soups, the main courses came with salads as well as perfectly prepared vegetables; spices, herbs and flavourings were very special.

Truly homemade with the best ingredients available all served with generosity and friendliness. This restaurant is at the beginning road on the Dingle Peninsula on the way to Inch beach and affords lovely views of organ in gardens at their best.

Stopped here for afternoon tea on a glorious sunny September day, today. Don't expect a manicured garden. It is lovely in it's own natural way. The eating area indoors is unique in a quirky way, with it's colourful décor and holistic atmosphere. We sat outside in the sunshine. The selection of open sandwiches was lovely and beautifully presented. The flavours... More
