Based on Tripadvisor, and our hotel's suggestion, we headed here for dinner and were not disappointed. The restaurant is tastefully decorated, has a rather varied menu and gracious, if a little haphazard service.
Leek and potato soup was a perfect starter on a damp and cold May evening. My wife and I both chose Kerry Rack of Lamb. It was of superb quality, cooked simply, but adroitly. The accompanying ratatouille, potatoes (two versions), salad and sauteed vegetables were all delicious. This is quality cooking without a lot of flourishes. Desserts were well crafted,a s they should be at 7.5 euros, and the wine list provided a decent selection of options at various price points.
I am still puzzled by the Irish custom, in some busy restaurants, of a tag team approach to service. We had three or four servers through the course of the meal. All were nice, but it made for some uneven timing. They became quite busy, and in the grand scheme of things we weren't in a hurry..Still, when everyone is responsible for the table, no one person is fully in charge. Tipping the committee, and the overall experience, is diminished. This purports to be, and is close to fine dining. A more even service is merited. Each of our servers could have done the job if it were assigned.
