Been here several times. This time Had the special of the day which was Roast Lamb, potatoes and selection of vegs. Very attentive staff and the food arrived very quickly and served well. They do 2 and 3 course specials and a good selection of wine and some beers. One course for 10 Euro is very good value I think.... More

We happened to try this restaurant when we were in Salthill. Are we ever glad we did! The seafood chowder was excellent; my husband had the roast beef - cut it with his fork, so tender. My fish was delicious with very light breading. But the customer service outshone even the tasty food. Even though it was busy, we were... More

Restaurant was busy when we arrived but we were seasted quickly and given menus. A good choice of offerings. The waiting staff were very friendly and even though very busy had time for some Irish banter. The food was fine for a spot of lunch and reasonably prticed
