So the decor was a little bit off putting if I am to be honest. Music was too loud and the whole dinning space was dark and not very inviting. Staff were very friendly, polite and had a casual attitude which suited the place. But the proof is in the eating and my steak was absolutely delicious and everything was... More

the place is not designed in the usual Irish stile, music might be bit too loud, but the food was great. Took my mother there, who is a big foodie and she claimed to have had the best lamb ever.

We ate here as a group. Setting is nice and service was friendly. We had mains only. The prawn curry was a hit and all enjoyed that. A little pricy at 23 or 24 euro. I had the salmon. It was tasty but well over cooked. The rib eye steak was ordered medium rare but was much closer to medium... More
