Lovely restaurant in the centre of Glengarrif. I had yummy monkfish and my partner steak which was cooked to perfection. Calm and tranquil setting with a nice ambience. They get extra stars for damask napkins.

For our stop in Glengarriff, we chose on a whim to eat here and prove fruitful. The staff was very nice and the food was even better. It's a very small bistro located on the main street and Glengarriff. Highly recommended passing through our staying in the town.
