However it was our waitress who made the experience truly enjoyable. She was friendly and great craic!!!! (Dark haired women, possibly in her 40s) The restaurant has a really relaxed vibe and...

Within walking distance of the Diamond where both the Central and Abbey Hotels are located. The food was great and the variety of items on the menu was good. Friends ordered pizza while I had fish and chips; everyone thought the food was great. The place is very busy and not a very large establishment but well worth visiting.

The atmosphere is nice, The food not so nice. I ordered a pizza with pepperoni and mushrooms, the pepperoni wasn't pepperoni it was something like Baloney.
