It was a fablous bar and restaurant. A good choice on the menu, they also do bar food. The prices were ok for Dublin.

We have been here on a number of occasions since it reopened just before Christmas 2012. Went with friends, my wife and on two family occasions also. There is a room just as you enter that is ideal to book if there are 8-10 of you as part of a group. Personal and away from the hustle bustle of the main restaurant area.

Starters are very generously portioned and the variety is excellent. From chowder to crab claws, confit of duck to goats cheese every one was very satisfied with their course. The steaks here are to die for, utterly fantastic and cooked to your exact liking which is always a good sign. A quality seafood menu is available too and good desserts making this an excellent choice for dining out in, in Swords! The bar downstairs is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy a few drinks in each others company too.

All in all, a great plus for the local area and no hesitation in recommending

The menu is very broad with something for everyone. The steaks are the best in town - great value and a lovely evening had there many times in the past few months

Very varied menu made it difficult to chose but when the steak and chips arrived there was no feed envy for me! Amazing. Wonderfully friendly waiters who joined in with our group's banter. Most definitely worth a visit and the best meal of our 2 night stay

Great atmospheric place to dine in, very cosy seating, and very accommodating service,with excellent food on offer. A varied menu, with something to suit, even the fussiest of diners, very impressed overall.

Prices are a bit on the steep side if you are a budget connoisseur but in fairness they didn't over charge and the quality of the meal was above average.

Would highly recommend., a must visit.
