Called in for a late lunch, only one other table occupied. Service by a young man efficient and polite. Food arrived promptly - tasted ok, nothing special. What we did not appreciate were two silly, giggling young girls each lying stretched out on a couple...More

This is a very good restaurant in Charlestown. The food was fantastic, the service was efficient and it represented value for money. The atmosphere is casual and the decor is bight and light. There are not many tables so you need to book. The menu...More
