“very good local place for families”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

i really like their food. great king prawns and fish and even burgers. the pizza is pretty good, nice and thin. service has always been good for me. i've been there 4 times and the staff is diligent and always running from table to table.

We went there as a family, it is somewhat romantic but they have put so many tables in there it is a bit crowded. they are very kid friendly.

“Rude staff”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Food just average but over priced. Asked to leave so staff can go home. Felt very uncomfortable from 10 pm as restaurant was very quiet and when the last but us left we knew we were certainly not wanted. Wouldn't go back.

“Really good restaurant for couples or families.”
Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

I've been here several times, with my wife for an intimate evening, and with our family for big occasions and its really good. The staff are A1. They know their menu and you feel as though you are being looked after the whole time you are there.
My wife can only eat gluten free foods so it's good that they can produce any pizza or pasta dish gluten free. As an Italian restaurant it's important they provide this option. The seafood chowder is excellent and comes with yummy warm dough balls. The seafood paella is also very good but I think it's only available at certain times of year.
This is a family friendly place which is also good for couples and my only real criticism is that it demands Dublin city prices for rural village dining. If it was in Dublin city, it would be tough to get a table.

“Always consistent”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

The two standout things about this restaurant are

1) Food quality is always very consistent
2) The best wait staff of any non michelin starred restaurant.
