Visited here in late August with two children on our way home from a weekend away. After spending a few days in a lovely hotel in Naas, we were bitterly disappointed with our meal in this restaurant. My wife's duck appeared to be microwaved from frozen and my seafood pasta was rubbery. The children didn't eat their food from a very limited kids menu which was supposed to be free with each paying adult. It was not however free, we were charged for it and it turned out to be one of the most expensive and worst meals of our trip.
My advice would be to bypass this rather dull and uninteresting restaurant, it's poor to say the least.
