From the starter to the desert, everything was absolutely beautiful. The staff were courteous and friendly from the time we arrived. This is a hidden gem. We have passed the door of this restaurant for eight years not knowing it was there as it is hidden behind the bar facade, which was our lose. The only fault with this great place and why I didn't give it five stars was as we were still eating our desert, the waitress started cleaning the next table to us with a spray which we found not very pleasant on the tongue or up our nose. All in all, great night and we will be back sooner rather than later. Well done all.

Expecting pub food, the menu offers something for everyone..with amazing international flair! A rack of Lamb, best ever, the fish cooked beautifully, and plated like a 5 star restaurant. The staff was wonderful...and a well priced wine list as a bonus!

Myself and my husband & two kids dine here a lot, the staff are so friendly and welcoming and always remember a face, the food is fantastic and portions are huge and not over priced. Most of all we love the friendly athmosphere and our kids are always welcome. If in Kingscourt i would highly recommend this resterant...A great pint of guinness too!!!

Where do I start. I've visited this tasty restaurant on a number of occasions. My most recent being last week while in the area carrying out some coding for a client. It has improved in many aspects. The decor and upholstery have been given a fresh modern facelift. The food is still delicious, with good sized portions & new yummy specials. The staff are all very helpful and pleasant. The owner while busy, was chatty to all customers, accommodating and extremely down to earth.
The bar area and staff were lively and welcoming, with good banter and tales.
Will definitely be returning in the near future & would highly recommend it.
I would advise making a reservation as it was pretty busy & you don't want to suffer the disappointment of not having a table, when a simple phone call could give you a great evening out.
