“The crown of lamb was lovely - but not much else going for it!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2010

We had a pleasant meal here last week but the staff were very slow and there was no real atmosphere. The meal was expensive for what it was and didn't compare with other similarly priced meals we'd had in neighbouring restaurants.

“Lovely food but zero atmosphere and poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2009

Went midweek in September, only had main courses for dinner (lamb & steak) which were both delicious. However, the waiters were totally inattentive. It was very hard to catch their attention and they served two tables who had come in after us before they even brought us a glass of water. No atmosphere and very quiet music so hard to have a conversation without the people at the next table hearing every word!

“A typical Irish lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2009

Had lunch there twice. Good food, good service, reasonable prices, pleasant surroundings. No frills, I am afraid. But we didn't want them anyway!
