Beautifully vintage & quaint interior. Greeted by a very nice team of staff and looked after so well. Food was so tasty and fresh with wonderful amuse bouche as well. As a cealiac there was great options and the staff were well versed. Lovely wines. Just a really nice meal in a lovely setting

Great option beside Brabazon for a more relaxed atmosphere. Small bar but plenty of floor space and a lovely menu. Sunday Lunch is very nice and you still get a very high standard of cooking.

Fresh seasonal food in delightful surroundings. Each dish was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. There wasn't anything on the menu that I wouldn't have wanted to eat. Service was friendly, attentive and efficient without being OTT.

We went to the Cellar Restaurant for a family lunch, we hadn't booked and even though it was busy we were accommodated. 3 course lunch menu, excellent value at €19.95 with tasty options. Staff couldn't have been nicer, the best level of service we have had in a while. Would absolutely recommend and will be going back for Afternoon Tea... More

We booked for New Year's eve. Lovely venue, very romantic and quaint. Beautiful setting. Staff were very friendly and nice. Went with family and was booked by my father so none of us saw the set menu. Unfortunately when we saw the menu, it just wasn't our cup of tea (raw Pigeon, Venison, everything was salty, even the dessert) and... More

I've eaten here quite a few times, the most recent being a few weeks ago. It's quite out of the way, and it almost a destination in itself. The prices are steep enough and the portions are quite small so if you like big portions, you will be sadly disappointed! Nice place for a special occasion but I feel that... More

The Cellar Restaurant and Bar is a place for good food and relaxation. The carefully created daytime menu offers the casual diner a wide selection of both main course dishes and light bites, whilst the more voracious diner can still craft a delicious 3 course meal from the wide range available.
