“Early 80's food and surreal decor ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

Right this one was very bizarre. Very throwback formal dining in what is actually a very traditional building that would be much more suited to informal style. No atmosphere really. E had trilogy starter which was just a sample of several of the menu presented in a cake stand. Nice enough and potato soup with prawns in bacon nice but nothing gourmet. Salmon avocado and mango a tad 70/80s. Mains were both really well cooked pieces of meat but both came in a fairly similar and underwhelming gravy that had hints of the gravy granules about it. Sorry but it wasn't cheap at around 160 euros for a couple with wine. We shared a pud which was ok. Interior clashed on so many levels. Seat covers with leaves in peaches etc, dodgy prints of kids and ballet dancers that you'd find on cheap birthday cards, then mad luminous orange paint... This all finished with formal linen table clothes and nasty thick plates like you get in canteens. Some of the older generation seemed to like it though. Shame as nice to see a restaurant outside of the main strip doing so well, but would have preferred something a bit simpler and more authentic.

“Salty gravy ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Ate here tonight with my lady. Bit of an 80s throwback really. No atmosphere due to piano cover songs played on a loop which would be OK if you like R Kelly I guess. Menu great. Lots of choice. Fantastic wine. Disappointed when my steak with foie gras was served with a poor salty gravy. We spent €150 for two people ... Expected so much more. A worthy contender, but way overpriced for quality and experience.

“Beautiful Meal in a lovely setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

Ate here last night and was not disappointed. Patrik introduced hinself on the way in which is a lovely touch. The restaurant only seats 19-20 and as previous reviewers have said it's like being in their home. We had the trilogy to start which was worth every cent, so much work goes into this dish. Duck, which had the most incredible passionfruit gravy and salmon for mains followed by chocolate innovation for dessert. This was quite simply the best fondant i have ever tasted. Very well done. It's masterchef food - very simple and clean ingredients, nothing too showy just honest good food.

“Simple food cooked to perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

Visited a week ago for the fine dining experience and to try something a bit different! Upon arrival we were welcomed and greeted by Patrick at the beginning of the meal.

It is a tiny restaurant and the only gribe i have with that is that it was a little bit stuffy so some windows opened would have been nice. Otherwise it has an intimate and romantic setting.

I ordered the King Prawns wrapped in bacon which was delicious! It came on a bed of salad with balmasic vinegar which I was a fan off. For my main I had beef tenderloin which was cooked just how I like it and fell apart at my knife. The accompanying potatoes and vegetables were also cooked well and I throughouly enjoyed my dish. My partner had the sea bass main and was equally impressed. The Chocolate Creation desert was beautiful! The passion fruit jelly was a great twist to a classic souffle dessert and went down a treat! The prosecco I had with my meal was lovely and I really recomend it.

For a fine dining enjoyable experience this is the place and there is no doubt Patrick is going to be a famous chef in years to come as his food is some of the best I have ever tasted. Thank you for the great evening.
