Fantastic meal

Visited as a party of four and ate in the downstairs restaurant. Had the belly pork terrain and it was simply delicious. Had the steak for main course and it was cooked to perfection, had this with the mashed potato side which were gorgeous . Pudding was delicious, just a lovely dining experience !

I visited here in May as part of a large group, for a post Christening lunch and was really impressed. The service was excellent, the staff were very friendly and professional. The building is lovely, nicely decorated and has a lovely atmosphere. We ate in the private room upstairs as we had a big group. The food was just delicious.... More

Brought my mother here for afternoon tea as a present- sandwiches, wraps and scones were very nice. Desserts weren't great - the chocolate brownie was very dry. Afternoon tea was quite expensive however - food was nice but not worth what it costs.

Very expensive. Small portions. Burnt fish. Only given small tail end of fish which was way over cooked. Have to pay extra for vegetables. Too closely spaced tables. Seated next to waiters rushing by. Wine was €45 but €25 at other restaurant near by. Not 'upmarket' enough for prices being charged. First and last time we try this restaurant. There... More

As Bon Appetit had a menu that looked interesting as well as an early bird menu, we decided to give it a try. When our starters arrived I was amazed at the presentation then just as amazed at the flavours on tasting.

I went to this restaurants tapas bar early on a Friday in order to beat the mass descent of women that seemingly keeps the restaurant industry afloat. It seemed like a solid strategy in theory: beat the masses and enjoy a chef who would be fresh and ready to prepare his first dishes of the day. The menu seemed interesting,... More
