it is only a cafe

Used to love visiting this place but recently along with its sister cafe based in Cahir we have noticed that prices have rocketed and this at a time when the VAT rate on restaurants has been reduced. One major fault with this cafe is that downstairs there is an emergency exit sign which points to a... read more

The food is reasonably priced and the portions are generous. Most of the mains on the menu, except the steak, seem to be in and around a tenner. I love the atmosphere, it always reminds me of being on a foreign holiday! I'm not a fan of how cramped the upstairs seating arrangment is because it seems like all the... More

Dined here for my birthday recently. There were 24 of us. The service I must say was excellent, staff very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent - top class. It makes such a difference to be able to bring your own wine - and we also brought a birthday cake. Really good service - well done.

This place has improved a lot since I was there last. Several unpleasant experiences a couple of years ago with the most obnoxious waitress ever meant I'd resolved never to go back. But I decided to give it another try one Friday at lunchtime. Thankfully 'Miss Personality of the Year' wasn't there. Whether she's not working there any more or... More
