Been meaning to leave this review for a while. Had a fantastic dining experience here with husband last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. The atmosphere was professional but friendly and the food rich and sophisticated. Definitely one for a special occasion.

Beautiful and amazing food, but ordinary service. To come & enjoy a tasting menu, or any dinner, you expect a bit of interaction and feedback. Felt ignored for most of the meal, as for example, I had to get up to ask for a cheese board and our water sat empty for half the meal. Apart from this it was... More

Gorgeous, fine cuisine that was beautifully presented and tasted exceptional. Great service and friendly staff and special compliments to chef Sean Lafferty the Guinness bread melted in my mouth and the hazelnut cake was to die for, in fact every single course was sublime. We will certainly be returning soon.

I couldn't fault the meal. However, on the second visit with family for dinner, the meal, while it looked great, lacked seasoning (I had to... More

The food left us speechless and the service was first class as always. Ian and his team just go from strength to strength. If you have not eaten at... More
