“"Birthday"”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

I recently booked this restaurant, for a family members special birthday occasion. Thankfully this restaurant lived up to the high standard, which I had heard so much about. The food was excellent and the value for money with regard to the early bird menu, was well worth it.
The staff were very friendly and looked after our group with great help, and the service was outstanding. This restaurant is set in a most beautiful location on the lake, ....what a view.....
Definitely a little gem and one of the best locations I have dined in so far..... in Ireland.
I will definitely be making a return visit I cant wait.....

“Family function”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

It has been a few years since I visited this restaurant. It was for a family birthday and I brought my two boys 5 & 7. I was a bit concerned with the boys and the menu choice for them, I needn't have worried. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The level of service was excellent. The food was fantastic and not overly expensive as we were there for the early bird menu. We all enjoyed the experience thoroughly. The views are wonderful as the setting is on the lake. I would recommend a visit and I am planning a return visit soon.
