Good Food

My most recent visit was last Saturday night the 9th May. I have visited this restaurant often but because it is local I have never given a review of it. If you are ever in and around Clonmel I would recommend it. The quality of the food is consistent the cost is similar to other Italian... read more

Been here on two different occasions. Both times it was busy and we had good quick service. Pizza's and pastas a are good. Glass of Coca cola out of a large bottle annoys me but maybe that's just me.

The staff were very friendly, Enjoyed the starter and the pizza was lovely. Nice atmosphere though small. If your looking for Italian this will do the job!

My fish dish lovely and creamy and hot, hubby"s Carbonara good. Too full for desert. Chemical taste off water, could do with a filter. No licence to sell wine, but said I could have bought my own, fair enough. Place so full had to go downstairs, very popular place.

Went to this cafe today. I had been there on a few occasions in the past and had found it pleasant enough, but nothing to write home about. My girlfriend told me that she used to get a great chicken sandwich there and it was great value for lunch. I decided to surprise her with a trip there for lunch.... More

Went here with my girlfriend a while back. First thing i noticed is that every table seems to be very close together, everyone seemed to be on top of each other and there was a real lack of privacy. However, this was my only issue. The menu showed a very good selection of food and we were not waiting long... More

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 wall with no door,... More
