Visited this restaurant last saturday. After having had a look at the menu we decided to try the calamari, the seafood chowder, the salmon and the traditional irish stew. has been a hard choice because the menu is varied and all the dishes that came out of the kitchen looked delicious. The statrers were wonderful, the salmon was very tasty... More

Thank you so much all the staff for lovely friday lunch. Food was wonderful, tasty, huge portions and very good value. We had one year old baby with us and our waiter Valter was so friendly. He also helped us with buggy on the stairs. We had very nice time.

Our first impression was good. Lots of people, nice atmosphere and helpful friendly staff. The menu had a great variety.

Arriving here we were made most welcome. The food was excellent, staff bent over backwards to help. Had the coddle and the girlfriend had the cottage pie, prices i did not think were to expensive, portions plentiful. Waited for the music after the meals were finished which turned out to be good craic also. Highly recommended.
