The title's a bit Jeremy Carlsberg, but this place really is one of the best for fine food & value for money. This is my third visit in two years (when in Enniskillen) and the quality has remained consistently top-notch.

The collection of Bridgestone awards on the wall of this restaurant says a lot but a customer review can provide some extra details. The menu is simple but comprehensive. The waiting staff are friendly and efficient. the food is consistently good. I have had the ribeye steak on numerous occasions and on every occasion it was served piping hot and... More
