The staff are very pleasant every time I have been, especially one waiter, however the food is very average at extortionate prices. Much better value to be found around Malahide!

Nothing was a problem for the staff. Highly recommend-... More

We were recommended this place by a friend but we were quite disappointed in the end. It advertises the best burger in Ireland-my husband is a major burger lover but it came out burnt with no taste and smaller than the palm of my hand! It was wayyy overpriced too, we saw other dishes go out equally as small. BUT... More

My friends are BIG fans of the Scotch Bonnet & to be perfectly honest I don't see what the fuss is about. I've been here on serval occasions over the last year and none of them have left me overly impressed. I'm a coeliac & I'm always sick after eating here - so much so that when I go with... More
