Ate here with my boyfriend during a trip to Salthill. I got lasagna and he got burger with bacon and cheese. Lasagna was lovely but his burger was very dry, I tasted some and couldn't get over how dry it was. It was as if it was sitting under a heating tray for a long time. However hunger was the... More

This place is much improved.Again at the outset I discard all the " wow " reviews I've read as blather and I advise others to do likewise. This is not a wow place. It is decent good value establishment with good... More

The restaurant was very nice and we had a good dining experience. The restaurant has a really good selection of menu items, so even the... More

I brought my parents to theirs and mine favourite Resturant and and what a great surprise to learn they are celebrating 50 years in the business. Not surprising to be honest as this Resturant has always been consistent with their food, staff and ambience. What was really great however is that that they are celebrating their anniversary in typical style... More

We were the last to arrive and they warmly welcomed us in, despite trying to close moments earlier. The service was great: Irish charm. The food was simply outstanding esp the local delights: the Irish stew, the bacon and cabbage were amazing. And to finish? The rhubarb crumble. Delicious. Well worth the visit.
