During a resent visit to Salthill we could not pass this place. We would be regular visitors to Salthill so we we were not surprised to see the same staff as last year. Which says it all in my mind.

Quick dinner for three adults. Reasonably priced, but excellent quality. Queued for table, but well worth it. Staff friendly and fast.

My husband and I have been three times, twice with friends. Each time the staff is friendly, and really, really helpful. I'm gluten free and the staff is all very well informed and I have had absolutely no issues. The food is delicious. So far, our favourite place in Ireland.

We went here for a family meal and there were 6 of us so we had a 45 minute wait for a table (this was annoying as you can not book in advance) but the lady that seated us gave us a round of drinks for our trouble. The restaurant itself is not very big but the service is quick... More
