Was keen to try and I have heard great reviews. Went there with my 6 mth old, mother and sister for lunch. Very busy so advise to book in advance. However they were very helpful and found us a table very quickly. Had mains and desserts - all beautiful. Well priced and great atmosphere. Lovely place to buy a dessert... More

I had lunch here for the first time today. A little hidden gem. The first bonus is not having to pay for parking, no struggling with finding a machine, change etc. so that's a nice positive start.

As it happened on this occasion only had a snack but saw the others in the restaraunt having wonderful food in a really quaint atmosphere. There is also a shop where you can buy local produce. Super local produce to eat in or take away.

Amazing service from the minute we arrived until we left. The gentleman serving us with glasses was lovely! Our food was so fresh & tasty!!! The dessert was 10 out of 10 and the cappuccino was the best I've ever had!!! Highly recommend this place!

I've eaten there twice in the past two months & the food and service are the best in Midleton. The staff are friendly without being overbearing & the food quality is fantastic.... More

Ate here recently with a friend. Was very busy (Saturday lunchtime), so had to wait a little while for a table. But was worth the wait. Good, tasty food. Nice portions. Fantastic atmosphere. Lovely staff. Looking forward to returning.
