What a nice find. Small, intimate and quite contemporary that makes a change from some of the local places that try too hard to be

I had a roast lamb dinner and my friend ate sliced duck in a tasty sauce. Veggies were of excellent quality and tasted fresh. Proper mash and... More

Each evening we were there the owner had to turn people away. It is advisable to book as the restaurant has many repeat diners. We will be back in August... More

Visited on a Sunday where they had a variety of roasts available but my husband and I went for Portuguese options of a chicken dish and espada fish. Both were delicious and served with copious amounts of veg. Washed down with an €8 bottle of red wine. Service great.

Although it operates all week, we have always visited on Sunday when the attraction at both lunch and dinner is the English Sunday roast. Once again, this year we were delighted with our meal. We both enjoyed our pate starter and we were then presented with our main courses. My roast beef was well cooked and the accompanying dish of... More

Visited X Tonel on recommendation of a friend. The food was excellent the place is small and compact but spotless. The service was very good didn't have to wait long at all. I have to say I had the best meal of the week. Well worth a visit.
