“Best restaurant in Ballina by far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Visited the market kitchen on back of trip advisor and review of the restaurant's website. We were not disappointed by anything. The staff from the moment we walked through the door were friendly and happy. The selection of fresh homemade breads and the appetisers were great and a nice touch. The starters, scallops and caesar salad were really tasty and full of flavour. Main courses of sirloin (cooked perfectly to medium rare) and pork belly were beautiful. Deserts were delicious. Good selection of wines which could be expanded slightly but it's only a very minor observation. All in all a great restaurant with great food and friendly staff.

“Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

This is both a cable and a butcher shop. There display of foods and desserts are mouth watering. Wonderful place to stop if you are shopping in Ballina.

“Best meal for 5 years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Hadn't eaten here for a few years. What a change. Great welcome . Good service ,with a smile.
Although I ate in the bar I used the restaurant menu. Superb black pudding salad to start with followed by a delightful piece of belly of pork. A very large piece cooked to perfection. Finished with a delightful cheesecake. All for 30€. Thoroughly recommend .
