Front of house needs attention and floor staff need organising. Let me say the food outweighs all this. Top class. I will be there again Soon. M

Fab food,great service and with the fab weather we could take our teas outside for the much sought after vitamin D soak. I gave a gift of a voucher for this restaurant recently and am assured that it won't be their last visit either. Great to have a restaurant of this calibre in my home county!

I recenty had a family meal here having heard from a few people that it was well worth going to and we weren't disappointed. The food was delicious and looked as good as it tasted. The staff were very friendly & were quick to come when looked for and the restaurant had a lovely atmosphere. Great value for money too we'll definately be back.

We had a really excellent meal for 6 here. The menu has a great choice and the food is first class. The service was very attentive without being overpowering. I had the tiger prawns, sirloin steak and the creme brulee and thought that all were excellent. Great to have such a great place to go to in Co. Laois.

Myself and my husband live in Portarlington and have eaten here many times. The food has been consistently flavoursome, well presented and cooked to perfection. The staff are friendly and are great with kids. I have to say, we are so grateful to have a restaurant of this standard in our town. We would normally have driven to Dublin to eat in a top restaurant so to have one on our doorstep is fantastic. This is top quality food for very good value. This restaurant is well worth a visit!
