Just amazing food and great wine list. I thoroughly recommend it for romance. The restaurant decor is lovely and simple. The food is top notch. The wine list is very complimentary to the food. You couldnt leave unhappy. Thoroughly recommend.

Sunday night dinner here was not quite as expected . The restaurant has a very poor decor , outdated furniture and it lacks atmosphere! The music died every so often , leaving the place in silence .. We got a table by the window , which was a very cold spot , so asked to be relocated. The food was... More

This is one of the very best restaurants in Limerick and has held that position for many years. I've eaten here with my wife, family and friends on many occasions and NEVER had a bad meal. The restaurant is owned and run by a lovely french/irish couple who combine french food and irish hospitality to great effect. The food is... More

This was my fifth time going here in the last couple of years and it has been fantastic every time, both of our meals were beautiful and flavoursome I had the veal and my partner had duck, the service was great and very helpful. It is definitely the best place to eat in limerick in my eyes.

Ate here this week while in Limerick on business (and recommended it to our customer afterwards). I asked if they were on TA as when I did some research before the trip, didn't remember seeing anything. Now that I have looked further, it still amazes me just how strange some people can be. There must be two French tables in... More

This restaurant is a 'find' made on my most recent visit to Limerick. the cuisine is really very good. The proprietor chef is french, from Strasbourg which has one of the great gastronomic centres of France. I often search at the last minute in other european cities (like Vienna recently) for a good quality reasonably priced restaurant near my hotel.... More

A great night was anticipated as we arrived to dine..We were a large group of eight couples. As we arrived not one couple were greeted with so much as hello.. while we seated ourselves it was a full 45 mins of being ignored when a member of our party had to ask for our order to be taken. At this... More

I am not sure if we just went on a bad evening, restaurant quiet and lacked atmosphere. The food was disappointing, staff were not the most friendly, I won't be going back

We were disappointed with this restaurant as thought from reading pervious reviews that we would have a fab meal but I would only rate the food average. The French Onion soup was very disappointing and out of the 4 of us dining, none of us really had any great remarks about the main courses.. If I was to pick any... More
