Description: Brennan’s Lane is in the heart of Ballina, on the evocatively named Garden Street. From outside it looks quite small, but this is deceiving as it stretches way back and is actually huge. It has an almost Tardis quality in the amount of space inside. Downstairs is the bar, where some pretty serious gigs take place while you will find the restaurant on the first floor. The dining room is beautifully designed and features exposed brick walls, cool sofa seats, plenty of well spaced tables and chairs and some interesting art, as well as a series of old style butchers blackboards showing farm animals and the parts the different cuts of meat come from. The room is long and fairly narrow, but well thought out design means it feels light and airy, and the open plan kitchen at one end adds to the sense of space. It is modern and elegant, warm and inviting. Description from Taste of Ireland by Paolo Tullio

Reviewed July 20, 2011

This restaurant recently changed chefs. It has also changed name - it used to be Market Kitchen.The menu has been reduced in size. I found it difficult to find something I liked for mains.Our meal was ok. I had Lobster Ravioli. I found the portion size to be very small - I got about 8 smallish pieces for €18.00. It is however all homemade pasta's used, you could tell the difference. The Lemon tart for dessert was gorgeous but tiny.
