“Excellent food and service!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

Found this place on the recommendation of a taxi driver - we were going to go somewhere different. Thank goodness we ask for his opinion. There were 4 adults and a child - 2 years. They could not have been more welcoming and friendly - nothing was too much bother. The food was awesome - tasty and reasonably priced. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening. Thank you.

“Exquisite ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

Such a friendly warm welcome myself and my family recieved, large reception area which was lovely and warm, important at this time of year. After we sat our drinks order was promptly taken and such an incredible wine list.
We were given ample time to peruse the menu whilst enjoying our cocktails. Duck spring rolls, and homemade chicken wings really are to be recommended, although the selection of other starters sounded just as appetising! The main course, I had fillet steak, unbelievably tender and cooked to a degree of accuracy I can only describe as PERFECT, the wife had battered fresh cod, and to our complete surprise the cod was FRESH, not like so many other places advertising fresh cod, the other two in the party had the beef stirfry, again excellent. Deserts, cheesecake, light and fresh, and the chocolate puddings appeared to be fresh from the oven, smelled like heaven.
Will definitely be returning!
A big thank you to Barry and his staff, service was top notch, hats off to you guys

My sister and I were traveling through Ireland and ended up at the Fiddler's Elbow during our stay. The food was delicious and the service was really great. Would definitely go back!!
