Very nice food, very good value.

Went here for Sunday lunch recently. Didn't enjoy any of the meal. Fab presentation of the food but just found the food lacked flavour. Had mushrooms to start with which are normally yum but didn't enjoy them at all. We both ordered the vol au vonts, exactly the same with mash, chips and salad. But yet when they came out.... More

Had a wonderful meal with friends in the Dining Room. Very tastefully decorated, great food, beautifully presented with excellent service from William and his staff, the staff were very accommodating, one small fault was the coffee was quite weak.

At the recommendation of one of my husband's coworkers, while we were visiting Ennis we stopped in here for dinner. The atmosphere and prices were very good for food as fine as this. The wait staff was friendly. I had the steak, it was a bit overcooked but still tasty and was served with the best onion rings I have... More

Great restaurant! Really delicious food for discerning palates. My husband had leg of lamb and I had a unique and magnificent vegetarian, will mushoom tarte. It was amazing! Everything was great. The restaurant was recommended highly by Maureen Moran, the owner of Eden Hill where we stayed.

I'm originally from just outside Ennis and ate here a few evenings ago with my family. I would have no problem stating that this was the best food I have ever had in any restaurant in Ennis. For starter i had a very tasty seafood chowder and the mussels were surprisingly meaty given the time of year. For main course... More
