“Lovely Romantic Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Myself and my boyfriend stumbled across this lovely restaurant by accident at the weekend. It is a fabulous restaurant, brilliant atmosphere, amazing food and very warm and friendly staff – would definitely recommend anyone looking for a really enjoyable evening with nice food etc to try this restaurant. Finished our meal off with the most amazing irish coffees - perfect ending to an amazing evening out..will definitely be back!!

“Fantastic dining experience!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Have eaten here on a few occasions and have never been disappointed. Food is great and you get plenty of it. Service is fantastic, always made feel so welcome. When here for my birthday they added some nice touches, noting my name and creating a special dessert before wishing me a happy birthday. Will return again and again!

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

This is a beautiful restaurant - from casual day time to nice evening meals - it's great. The decor is in the style on a monastery/medieval. The menu has something to suit everyone and the food was delicious - super wine list too. Would highly recommend a visit. Such friendly staff!

“Top notch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Love this spot.

Amazing ambience, front of house are brilliant and really help in making your night special.

Food is lovely and menu is dynamic, so you can be very adventurous or the classics are cooked to perfection.

Wine list is one of the best I've ever seen

Can be quite expensive but there are cheaper options and an early bird menu if you are on a budget.

Such a treat!
