My self and the girlfriend were looking for a nice lunch out in Carlow and I honestly couldn't have asked for more. It was overly busy but the staff were extremely kind and no one seemed to be waiting around on them, we were served very quickly. The best part of all was the food, my girlfriend ordered the lasagna... More

Enjoyable atmosphere and great food at a very reasonable price. However you'll need to get there early for a seat. Great live bands.

I visited this restaurant with a group of 6 - including 2 children - on Christmas Eve. It was very busy but yet we were immediately shown to a table and service was very good. We had a full lunch, which was very good - and the children were very well looked after. Certainly a good centre town restaurant.

Had lunch here recently and it was awesome. Can be difficult to find a nice steak but here it was cooked to perfection. Ordered a sirloin, rare and it arrived in around ten minutes, perfectly cooked served with all the trimmings. Service was attentive. All washed down with a couple of pints of Guinness.
