Party of 11 and the service was excellent but what was the point that it put a bad taste in my mouth was the food was cold and paying out €27 on a steak you would expect it to be piping hot .

Love the food here, it NEVER fails me but the service was a bit sketchy. I never feel totally comfortable which is a pity but because of the good honest food, the great prices and the fact the hubby loves it well keep coming back.

The restaurant was very quiet when we arrived but still had to wait a few minutes before being seated. Our order for drinks was taken fairly quickly and the waitress informed us off all the things that weren't available as she gave us our menu. We decided on the 'dish of the day' which was perfect, you would be hard... More
