i was in ennis at the weekend visiting friends, we went for dinner in the cloister which was really good, I had crab risotto and lamb for main course which was really well cooked and again all the presentation was really neat and clean and the side orders that came with the main courses (lovely garlic potatoes) we were also allowed a long break before dessert which was very good as we didn't feel rushed, polite and friendly staff and beautiful decor... def recommend

We ate here on 5th March. The restaurant accomodated a group of 16 people and had a menu for €19.95 (4 courses and a cocktail). The choices were varied and very well prepared and presented. Service was very good and timely but not rushed. The restaurant is set in an old cloister and it is beautifully decorated. This will definitely be top of our list for a return visit when we head back to Ennis for our next singing workshop.

I was in Ennis for a weekend with the girls a week or so ago, we would often make trips down to ennis and we have went for drinks in the cloister before but never for dinner. For a change we said we'd try it out. Thankfully we did the whole evening was really nice and so enjoyable, the atmosphere was amazing we had drinks before dinner and it was all kept so relaxed, dinner itself was such great value and food was lovely! The service was great we were really well looked after by the waitress all night and the restaurant was so nice also such amazing lights we will defo be back! Great night

I took my husband as one of his treats for his birthday. It was absolutely phenomenal. I rang ahead so they could do the usual birthday things (except we all had strict instructions NOT to sing Happy Birthday).
It was a great night.

went in for lunch with a friend. I found the food ok. Although when i got my chips they were under-done. The service was very slow and one of the staff members was shouting across the bar at another staff member- something about kegs?. Very unprofessional. The price of the food was acceptable but there are much better deals for food in other restaurants in ennis. i probably wont be returning, but maybe my experience was a once off..... all the other reviews seem to be great.
