good quality but poor choice

Good quality food, but the menu felt limited, not a lot of choice. IMO Go for the Liver starter and main course steak!

Everything was perfect as we ate dinner. Sun setting over the lake, great food, super service and a nice bottle of wine in a very relaxed setting. Menu has a variety of starters and main courses but I highly recommend the carrot and banana cake for dessert. It was divine.

I have eaten here a number of times both for Sunday lunch & evening dinner. Food is good but over priced & every time I have been left waiting or forgotten. Poor service or just not enough staff.

I only visited because of a recommendation from a business associate and was I pleasantly surprised. The staff were exceptionally good and the food excellent. There are some stunning views over Lough Ree and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area. I can't wait to return.

What a location! Do ask for a table overlooking the lake of if the weather is good choose to eat outdoors on the decking ( there are fleecy blankets provided if the evening turns cool!).
