“Fab food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Had a yummy pesto cream pasta here from the specials board. Just beautiful. Possibly the nicest pasta dish ive had. Great service. Just a wee bit pricey though.

“Excellent in every way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Was in this restaurant end of last year for a family event. Everything was perfect; food delicious but the staff stand out as being so helpful and friendly. If I was in Athlone again I would definitely visit this restaurant and would highly recommend it to others.

We stopped here on the basis of the reviews on Urban Spoon and were rewarded for looking at the site. Friendly and helpful waitpersons accompanied a great lunch.

“Just the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

We went there six adults on Saturday evening. The cozy atmosphere was a good start. We booked our table for 7pm and had our order at 7.20, and still we were able to choose from early bird menu, which was very good. Its a bit pricey but the food worth every penny. The presentation, the taste and service made our night very enjoyable. Cant wait to return!
