My second visit to this fine restaurant. Cannot fault it. Beautifully presented, tasty and flavoursome food. Service excellent,attentive but not intrusive. Only downside there is no a la carte, only set 3 course, so only go there if you are really hungry. You wont be disappointed.

We were given a small cup of soup as a complimentary starter. It was also delicious. The staff are friendly. If in a hurry it's best to go at the... More

Best food in Wexford at a reasonable price the staff are great too. I love the twists they can put on old Irish classics without taking away from the foundations of the dish
