I had the 9-course tasting menu with the paired wines and I have to say it didn't disappoint. Lovely restaurant with knowledgeable and helpful staff and not at all stuffy like you get in some Michelin-quality restaurants. Quite relaxed and inviting.

One of tge top 5 restaurants in Ireland and it did not disappoint. Went for a set menu lunch and had a beautiful meal. As a salmon addict... I can say this is the best salmon Inhave ever tried. Very elegant setting and flawless service but the cooking in itself is the star of the show.

We loved everything, but being jetlagged the service dragged a bit as the sommelier presented the wine pairings and we waited in between courses. I think we would have been ok with a 3hr dinner if we hadn't been so tired. The food was every bit deserving of the ir Michelin star. The wait staff was attentive without being overbearing.

Visited this past weekend and had a great experience. Lovely atmosphere, warm welcome and friendly service. I am not a huge fish fan but they had no issue whatsoever swapping the fish courses for courses from the vegetarian tasting menu for me. The food was exceptional - we were not disappointed and will certainly be back for another special occasion.

My husband and I each had the tasting menu - I had the vegetarian, he had the regular. The wines were perfectly paired and each wine was so unique-but still went perfectly with the course. The ambiance is formal which was fine with us. The service was very attentive. Each course was flavorful and delicious-they didn't miss the mark on... More

There is nothing to fault with this place. Decor is great, service very good, and even the food was very nice. My criticisms are the prices and the portion sizes. 3 courses each and a bottle of wine and a beer or two cost us over €250 and I can honestly say while the food was nice and I'm sure... More

My wife and I ate here for her birthday recently and had the tasting menu. We were very impressed by the value for money as we haven't had a tasting menu with wine pairings this low cost ever before. The food was great and the service excellent. The one downside was that despite having 6 courses, we both arrived home... More
