Stumbled upon this restaurant in Salthill after a long day out. The food was good quality and the service was quick and efficient. Our server Ellen was top rate and made the meal a true experience. Don’t miss the deserts!

Lovely dinner after a long walk on Salthill promenade. Busy restaurant but speedy service with reasonable prices and big enough portions.

Very friendly staff and comfy nautical style interior. Simple straight forward menu with specials. Our mains and desserts were very tasty and good size. We returned 2 days later for breakfast which was extremely good. Don't pass it by.
