Small friendly restaurant in Portumna with a good range of mid priced meals

Called in for a light lunch after a local business call in Portumna. The restaurant is located just off the main street and parking is easy. The service is prompt and the food is fresh, using mainly locally sourced ingredients. Good value for money.

Pretty good food here. You can BYO. It's s decent option in a town where the eating out options are pretty few.

Basic food in a basic cafe. The atmosphere is non-descript and the food lacked any originality. Not much more to be said.

I was looking forward to pizza following the reviews but left very disappointed. The base was not cooked properly, raw onions as a topping and oregano sprinkled on top after the pizza was cooked. Won't be returning for the pizza.

I ate here with my wife last Sunday night and it was exceptional. It is run by Jackie, who seems to do everything, waitress, chef, artist of the paintings on the wall, takeaway order taker etc. She had a million things on the go when we were there. The paintings on the wall are classm, Amy Winehouse and Madonna stand... More

Great relaxed family friendly Italian restaurant and takeaway. Good quality food, friendly service and excellent prices. Would love it to feel more like a restaurant than a takeaway and also in a more prominent location has huge potential!

Great value, tasty home made food - the pizzas are wonderful - served by owner Jackie who is also an artist, with examples of her oil paintings hanging in the cafe - definitely worth a visit - will be back every time we are in this area.

We asked people in town where to eat lunch. We were steered to a good lunch stop. Excellent service coupled with good food for a good price.

We had dinner here on the June Bank Holiday weekend. I had the steak and mushroom pie with chips and salad and my other half had pasta carbonara. Both meals were quite substantial and tasted great. Jackie, who cooked and served us had also created the beautiful artwork hanging on the wall. The painting of Amy Winehouse was uncanny and... More

Jackie is not just an artist on canvas ... the pizzas had by our group were so authentic we were licking our lips ... in fact I’m salivating of the thoughts and so look forward to a return visit.
