Better to stick to the large pitchers of dilutable orange that are available at your table. By the way the cost of... More

Two of us had Prawns in Chilli Garlic Cream Sauce with Garlic Croutons and it was absolutely delicious although the chips were a bit of a let down soft and... More

Visited for a solo meal on my way back from Kildare to Dublin airport, on a recommendation from a colleague. I found the service to be pretty good but the food was average at best. Fairly large portions but poor quality. Chicken wings were fine to start, although could have done with more chilli sauce. The Ribeye steak left a... More

Have eaten here many times. The food is always good and the service and staff excellent. The kids menu has a very good variety and is well priced. When I eat the burgers are always really tasty, alternatively the steak is always good too. Large choice of deserts and portions are big, but not too big. Only drawback is the... More
