Good atmosphere, recommended by a friend and was not disappointed. Had soup and a roll for lunch, value was good and the taste was even better.

Very nice starters - light potato gnocchi stuffed with cheese, and crab paté both nicely presented on slate plates. Rib eye beef main was nicely char-grilled and quite superb. Delightful desserts of crème brulée with ice cream, and chocolate and hazelnut tarte with icecream. Charming and helpful Austrian waitress. This restaurant has been going under same management some time now... More

This beautiful restaurant is hidden inside the walls of the oldest pub in Enniskillen, Blake's of the Hollow. The food is absolutely stunning, and very reasonably priced. From lunch at £4.95 (the sizzling fajitas or soup and a sandwich are beautiful) to a meaty steak for dinner, this place really is faultless. All of the staff are knowledgable and friendly,... More

The food was amazing. The entire staff was very diligent and the maitre d very knowledgeable with the menu and the wine. Kieran was exceptional at his irish coffee and we felt very very well welcome and looked after. We will be recommending this to all my friends and relatives.

I am on vacation. Found this by accident. Best combination food and wine in Ireland. Maybe, best take on surf and turf I have ever had. Normally, my trips are to Belfast. Now I will come here at least once every trip. Kudos to John and Gerry. What a team. Only regret is that I can't be here tomorrow night... More

We stumbled upon this wonderful restaurant in Enniskillen, and I'm glad we did! The food was fantastic, only equaled by the wonderful staff. We're on vacation in Ireland, and we wanted to bring dinner to our son, who stayed at the hotel for the evening. When we asked for a "to go" meal, our waiter at first said they couldn't... More

What a fabulous meal. Food was perfect, lovely fresh lemon sole and a truly flavoursome steak. Johnny, the owner, was so attentive and wowed with his extensive knowledge of fine wines. We sampled two very pleasing drinks with our cheese board, one a delicious port, compliments of the owner. I can't remember when I enjoyed a meal as much. This... More
