The current offer of a steak is really good! 10 euro gets you a lovely thick cut of beef cooked to your liking with homecut chips, onion rings (I do not eat them, but they look great on my husband's plate :) ) and pepper sauce.
Attentive staff, great atmosphere, being emphasized by their lamp shades and cool fluffy pillows. Try getting a table at the real fire they have inside at the lower part of the place - very intimate and private area, however you can still see everything. Large screens for sports lovers, however no annoying noise. Very happy that we have this place in Swords.

My favorite spot is just beside fire place - very cozy and nice to sit down and have a glass of wine or some hot drink, especially on cold winter evening. Reasonably priced drinks. Cant comment food - never eat here. Its busy place. All in all, was never left disappointed!
