My wife and I regularly visit the restaurant. Last Friday was just the two of us. We usually combine this with a visit to the Botanic Gardens, and inevitably end up in the restaurant.
The food is exceptional, the staff are so friendly and welcoming. It is like visiting a family home for good food, and wine. The value is also very good.
We have had personal dinners, and family get togethers of up to forty people. There are special rates for every day, and the only thing that never changes is the quality and attention shown to the customer.

I had heard the restaurant is under new management and was great value. We called on spec to discover they had a special offer for Thursday "Ladies Night " A 3 course meal for €20 for the ladies, with a house wine for €16 a bottle, which turned out to be very good. We were sceptical !!
However to our surprise all three courses were excellent, with a great selection to choose from. The staff were very warm, welcoming and very helpful. My wife enjoyed the meal very much, but was unable to have the dessert. She asked could she take it with her in stead, which was greeted warmly with "That is no Problem" We will be back.

I live about a 10 minute walk from this restaurant and eat out regularly yet have only been there once and that was 6 months ago. The food was good and there was a nice choice on the menu. Overall it was a bit expensive though. I have read previous comments from other reviewers in relation to the waiter and unfortunately have to agree. I actually overheard him making a very inappropriate comment to the waitress in relation to a diner at another tables appearance- hardly professional behaviour on his part. Overall he came across very sharp in his interactions which took from the experience. Maybe I'll give this restaurant another chance some day...

Cannot understand the negative reviews posted about this restaurant, had great night there, everyone in the group enjoyed their meal. Great choice and excellent quality. Ignore the bad reviews and try it, you will be very pleasantly surprised.
