This restaurant was recommended to my wife by two women working in a local boutique. We did not make a reservation as we did not expect the restaurant to be as busy as it was as we visited on a Sunday night. The restaurant itself had a great atmosphere. We were seated quickly but were left waiting for fifteen if not twenty minutes for a member of staff to take our order, which lead us to skip starters. I could not fault the food we received A great meal for a great price - two courses for twenty euro. We were unable to grab the attention of our waitress (who seemed to be busy taking cutlery off tables) to request for our bill. We went to the counter to pay where there was confusion over what we had ordered, The young man behind the counter spent some time reading through pieces of paper before finally giving us our bill, which included a supplement of four euro for a special main course which was not explained to us beforehand.

We had our lunch at this restaurant. We visited there as a family with 2 teenage daughters. The menu was excellent with lots to choose from. Everyone had loads of choices. We had starters, presentation was fab and the food tasted just as good. Main courses were just as good. Everything was very hot and service was excellent. We had the mini deserts even though we were extreamely full after 2 courses. Mini deserts are an excellent idea, not too much but enough to enjoy.
The restaurant was very busy but that did not deter from service
We will definately return to this restaurant again as we found it extreamely good value

This restaurant came highly recommended by our taxi driver. The food was good, the soup special that evening was excellent. There was an error on our order which was apologized for and the meal removed from the bill. I was surprised empty glasses were not removed immediately but the very friendly staff more than made up for it. I would eat here again.

Service average on the night we had dinner here. Admittedly the restaurant was very busy at the time. Food was nice. Nothing special about the whole place.
