Few girls went here for a catch up recently and were all pleasantly surprised with both service, food and price.
we all had early bird menu which had a lovely selection and the food was very enjoyable.
Staff were very friendly and nice, we had a new baby with us who needed to be fed before we left and we were asked would we mind moving to a smaller table as only 2 of us stayed on, of course we didnt mind and for our inconvenience we received 2 complimentary coffees.
we all enjoyed our meal and will certainly take a trip back again

Having a lazy Sunday & on a whim decided to being the family for a meal and avoid cooking myself, I'm so glad I did!
We opted for the early bird menu as it was only 4pm and my twin sons ate off the children's menu.
I had wild mushroom in a creamy sauce to start and it's by far the nicest starter I've ever had, can't recommend high enough. I then had the salmon on spinach, again delicious. He had the soup- carrot and orange and the taste was mind blowing, both starters were served with oven fresh crusty bread. The kids had chicken wings, enough each to fill a small elephant, they had a beautiful sweet chilli flavour and even the meat was cooked beautifully and very
tasty (yes, I had a good taste of everyone's meals!) he then had the steak, medium and it was cooked perfectly, juicy and delicious. The kids had pizza- half a massive one each and home cut fries and both boys finished every single bite which never happens normally! None of us had any dessert unfortunately as we were too stuffed! They've a great specials board too- loads of choices especially seafood, prawns, crab & lobster so we will be back to try those. Dinner for 4 came to under €70. Excellent value and worth popping in for the early bird for those prices. Worth mentioning they have a lovely seated outdoor area too. Also found you can order their menu food for take away too so I will definitely be doing that in future too. Delighted to have tried The Bective- top class food on my doorstep.
