Very disappointed that the owner/manager turned off a football game that some customers were watching to listen to a duo that were singing old tunes. I will give it a miss in future.

Dropped in for a light snack and opted for the mussels with white wine, garlic and tomatoes with garlic bread. Well for around €15 I received 10 mussels in a bowl of tomato soup with near raw garlic, and 4 slices of crusty toast with crunchy garlic on top. Hardly what I'd expect for €15 and hardly imaginative restaurant food

We were a party of eight and stopped here for a late lunch. Our server was exceptional and was extremely efficient without being bothersome. The food was adequate but the experience was exceptional

A good place to stop for a drink upstairs with friendly staff, especially the American waitress, didn't particularly like the food though.
