We were recommended to come to Nicks by our Bed and Breakfast accommodation. We received a very warm welcome and it was obviously a very busy Saturday night. We arrived just after 7 ordered our drinks and meals but by 8.20 still hadn't had our starters. I had to ask for someone to go and check as other tables that... More

Had a really disappointing experience at Nick's; nothing like the previous reviews, sadly. We were an adult family group of 8 and were seated close to the very loud Piano making dinner conversation very tough. We were a last minute booking so I can understand that they had very little alternative space, but it might be worth asking to be... More

We came with a party of 15 for a birthday. Nicks provided us with a personalised menu without us asking - such a thoughtful touch. Restaurant is beautiful, lots of space but equally atmospheric. We enjoyed three courses on the gastro menu for €28 - exceptional value for money as the food was delicious and plentiful. Big thumbs up!

We went to Nicks last weekend and the food, service and atmosphere was brilliant. Just a few small points would be the small size of the table and the very slippery floor! I thought it was just me until someone else at the table next to us said the same. Overall though a great night and will be back very... More

We enjoyed our nice relaxing meal and dessert here. The music was lovely and not too loud. The atmosphere was good for enjoying a relaxing late dinner after a long day touring.

Pros: tasty food (entrees were delicious as well as the thick steak sirloins and yummy desserts. The food was great, presented very nicely and everything cooked to perfection. The people were very nice and friendly. The piano player was great and really filled the room nicely. People were dressed well and the price, while some might think is a bit... More

This place was amazing. It was very busy when we went, but it was well worth it. The management apologized for the wait a couple times and said it wasn't normally like that, but the atmosphere that evening was awesome. Our food was superb, the bar selection was great, the piano music during dinner made for a perfect date, and... More

Enjoyed this restaurant very much. Nice mix of tourists and locals. Piano player played throughout our dinner. Great deal in the prix fixe with choices of app, main course and dessert for 28 euro. I had the the carpaccio for app--not raw as expected, but very tasty. The fish special was my main course. It was an Irish Sea bass.... More
