I had breakfast on two mornings here during a recent stay in Salthill. The menu was really good and was very good value. The food was delicious and staff were extremely welcoming and friendly. I would definitely recommend it.

We popped in here for lunch and we know why it was so busy on a Monday. The food was great, the service was fast and efficient and the staff were lovely. You felt very welcome and relaxed. What a fabulous place to eat.

The food isn't great. The steak was way overcooked for being requested Medium Rare. The fish and chips came with a fish that had all the bones still in it. Subpar. The waiter was kind and friendly. Wouldn't visit here again.

Thank beachybliss
