Im from Athlone and dine here quite often as does many of my friends and family. Its excellent value and quality food. The starters are quite big their main courses are big too with the italian potatos (like homemade chips). The only thing im not crazy about is their desert menu but thats probably because im so full after dinner. The service is great we had a party of 16 for a friends birthday recently and they got everything right first time and everyone served together.

“Never again”
Reviewed September 6, 2009

We ate in this restaurant in August 2009.
Overall, the kids food was pre-processed (i.e. poor quality nuggets). My pizza was definitely undercooked, with inferior salami etc inside it. My wife's lasagne was fine.

We asked if they could give us juice for the kids.. the waiter said it was not possible, even thought there is a bar downstairs from which the waiter brought me a beer.... doesn't make sense.

Ended up getting sick that night, food didnt sit well at all... would not recommend this to anyone. In fact I have seen similar reports on the "athlone" forum
