Lovely setting in the middle of wexford town. Great food cooked fresh with seasonal ingredients. Great write ups from the critics. Good service and value. 3 course for 25 euros or 4 for 28. hard to get a table sometimes as it is very busy.

This is a lovely small restaurant in the town and booking is definitely recommended. Although the dining room is quite bijou it has a cosy and homely atmosphere. The food is to die for except for my pet hate - the ubiquitous forrest of salad that accompanies everything. Beautiful lunch venue and comfortable, satisfying evening dining. We'll definitely be visiting... More

Wow - I rarely use superlatives but this is a great restaurant! Lovely staff, an unusual but traditional style menu. The chefs specials are to die for... My personal favourite the 10 hour cooked beef with onions in fondue.. with champ, turnip. A must have but make sure you have a good appetite! Highly recommended!

Ate here as part of a hen party. Restaurant were more than helpful in decorating the table and allowing us to drop in a couple of bottles of bubbly to have as we arrived. Very good value, 3 courses for €29. All the menu options were just gorgeous and food so fresh and locally sourced. Menu is changed a lot... More
