“Cool atmosphere, amazing food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

We happened upon this restaurant as we were wandering around Ennis. We saw that they had many gluten free options for my mom, and it was moderately priced, so we decided to give it a try.
The food was amazing. Everything cooked to perfection. It was a modern but comfortable atmosphere. The service was good as well. Would recommend if you're looking for a place to dine in Ennis.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Was walk through Ennis looking for a place to eat when we bumped into the head chef ! Lucky for us, could not fault a thing about the restaurant. A big spacious restaurant beautifully decorated, first class food and excellent customer service. Many thanks to Connor and staff for a lovely evening, we will definitely be back for another visit.
