Great little bistro

We visited on the day of an airshow, and all the staff were dressed up as pilots, air hostesses etc., making it a fun visit. Food was good, quite quick, and reasonably priced.

Food was very good, moderate sized portions, more diverse and creative menu that a lot of places we went. Wait staff was very friendly and very prompt, good recommendations for dishes.

Stopped in for lunch here in Ennis and it was fantastic. Very friendly staff, even though the place was extremely busy they were pleasant and most welcoming of our young children. The only downside is there is no free parking anywhere nearby.
