The food and service was excellent, the timeliness of the courses was spot on, and the food was cooked to perfection. Could not of asked for more. Can wait until I return to Ireland to taste the food of the excellent chef Martin Hernandez again.

Party of 6 had a very enjoyable meal. Great value Early Bird meal - two great courses for just €17 - that is hard to beat. Very good service. Friendly, professional and the Chef Martin is Mexican ! We want to see a Mexican night here in late September ! All you can eat €20 or so. Any takers ?
