Food is very jice, good big portions and just enough creativity. The pulled pork bruschetta was good, very juicy and with a great flavour. The decor is a bit brash, but that's forgivable. Good value to boot.

We booked a pre opera dinner here last November. The 6 of us arrived in plenty of time but had to constantly ask for service. We were stressed because we knew we would be under pressure to get our food before we left for the opera house. We ended up getting no desert or coffee. We found the staff arrogant... More

Amazing food & service! I go here twice a week because it's near my work place. Good value too. Small chicken salad is my favourite.

My wife and I had both lunch and dinner here last weekend and having been here before knew that both occasions would be good. Warren has a unique way with flavours. The staff are also very professional. It is easy to see why booking is essential both for lunch and dinner. We took a chance with lunch but were there... More

They have a very personal touch and clearly put a lot of thought and love into their business. The chef is clearly passionate about food and it's a welcome change from the usual drudgery of chippers and the like - you can get... More

Excellent food and reasonably priced... if you are looking for local produce with a twist, this is the place to go. I would advise to make a reservation thou as this place is very busy.

My wife and I ate here on a fierce weather day in Wexford. The food was like a big warm hug from your loved one. Service fantastic, food was the best home cooked style we have had in Ireland. They were out of their cabbage and bacon which typifies their style of cooking. Basically - just eat here if you... More
