The interior of the building is absolutely beautiful, it's very cosy. We had our young kids with us and the waitress was fantastic with them. I ordered the special seafood dish which I wasn't blown away with to be honest, however my hubby loved his fajitas and the boys meals were delicious too. Would definitely go back

We dropped in here and were made very welcome without a reservation. It is a very quaint little restaurant with a friendly feel and the staff were very attentive. The food was even better - a lovely selection of very varied dishes, of which we chose lamb and chicken supreme. Both came with a prefect vegetable accompaniment and really amazing... More

Excellent and cosy hidden around the corner of Athlone's main street. Recommended. Had the Sirloin Steak which was very large and prepared really good. Enjoyed my evening there. Friendly staff as well.
