well worth a visit. Food was excellent although slow in coming. Service was ok but a liitle slow and appeared disorganised as we had several different people serving us instead of one person being allocated to the table. Great atmosphere though, beautiful decor.

Travelling through Northern Ireland, we decided to call in at Portadown for some lunch and stumbled across this great restaurant in the centre of town.

We enjoyed the food a lot; it was full of flavour, served hot and the ingredients are proudly sourced from local producers. We particularly enjoyed the sweet pepper soup, the oven baked chicken and spinach dish served with scrummy garlic potatoes, as well as the pappardelle bistecca which was delicious. We rounded off lunch with great coffee.

Others were enjoying what looked like great pizzas, so we would definitely recommend them too.

The only negative point about this restaurant was the management who seemed more interested in chatting to the kitchen staff and themselves rather than clearing tables and presenting the bill. But don't let that put you off as the waiting staff were lovely.

We would definitely return here next time we are in Co. Armagh.

Had a very pleasant and enjoyable meal on Sunday 22nd Sept 2013, staff were very attentive and knowledgeable with a great understanding of Coeliac disease and the importance for cross contamination control which made my wife very at ease when choosing from the menu. A beautiful meal from starters to desert with the highlight being the seafood Tagliatelle which was cooked to perfection.

Lovely food, prompt service. good value as well! only reason for giving it 4/5 is that you have to book usually a week in advance and the waiters get a bit snarky if you try to book a day before!! I rang 2 days before and asked to book a table for Friday night, the evening meal, and they offered me 4.30pm or 9.30pm. not hugely helpful!!
I definitely would not turn up without a booking!!
