Intimate room, with chef cooking before you. Great wine pairings, and catered to vegetarian with no fuss.

This was one of the best meals I have ever had. The flavours, textures and presentation was a delight. The service was great and between courses came amazing amuse bouche, little delights. The kitchen is just to the side in full view and there is a appearance of calm! Really, really good food and we had a great evening.

Ryan's Kitchen provided us with an extremely good meal. The presentations were amazing and matched by good distinctive flavours in, sometimes unusual, combinations that all worked very well. The food was delicious which is not always the case with such well presented food.

It is a well laid out restaurant with its open, but quiet kitchen, and well spaced tables. It was interesting to see the many components in a dish come together at the hands of Ryan and his team.

Service was friendly, helpful and efficient. Wine list was well priced and offered a good range of choices.

My husband and I opted for the five course tasting menu with wine pairings at Ryan's kitchen and what a treat it was. Both were excellent. We loved the open kitchen where we were able to watch our food being prepared in a calm and efficient manner. The presentation, quality and flavours were all first class and the selected wines worked perfectly with each dish. For a tasting menu, the portion sizes were probably a little on the large side but the food was just too good not to finish. Top food served in a relaxed, friendly and informal atmosphere. What's not to love?!
