    It was a very special occasion for us and we were looked after so well from the moment we arrived. We had a beautiful table looking out onto the water and the staff were so so helpful and professional. Everyone raved about the delicious food and the service. 2 had seabass, 2 had cod, 1 chicken & 1 clams linguini. My mam commented a number of times on the flavours of the chicken. I thoroughly enjoyed the clams linguini and couldn't finish the portion. Had I been going home afterwards I would 100% have been asking you to package it up for takeaway to finish it later! Thank you so so much to all the floor and kitchen staff for a very special lunch experience. We are already planning our next visits. Thank you for also taking photos of the group and especially to Maria (oh I hope I got the name right) who walked out to the waters edge to get some pics of us from there. Please feel free to use this review elsewhere. A&K.... The newly weds. X

    It’s a nice location. We sat outside by the water. The starter of croquettes was excellent as was my sea bass however the steak wasn’t as good. peppercorn sauce was very watery.

    The place and the location are great, however I was expecting more of the food for the price. I ordered flat bread with pork belly. Didn't really like it as the bread was actually tasting bit overtoasted. The fried eggs on top weren't well cooked as it was possible to see a bit of the egg whites. It was not busy, so no excuses for that. My boyfriend ordered the breakfast. On the menu it was saying it would come with black and white pudding, which didnt. They explained the menu is about to change and this is not srved anymore. It seems to me that this change should happen only when they have new menus printed then. They brought us the black and white pudding though... Ordered banoffee for dessert and it was ok. Dont intend to go back...

    I love this place. I enjoy coming here because the vibe is great, the view is good, the staff are friendly, overall it’s one of my favourite places. I do feel like the quality of the food has gone down over the years. Dinner is great! But other menus could do with a little improvement. For the level this restaurant is at - the food is not up to standard. It lacks creativity, originality, options. Even take a simple cheese board… for €12 there was too much bread and not enough cheese or chutney… The service, staff, location and restaurant overall is great! The food … needs improvement especially with so many new restaurants and cafés emerging who are pushing themselves to impress the customers.

    The whole experience was just not great. The food took over an hour and was served cold. Very disrespectful and rude staff especially the supervisor - he mumbled that we’d be waiting for another 20 minutes on his way to the kitchen when we said the food was cold. Pity that the staff was unprofessional because the starters were delicious and the location is lovely - won’t be going back.

    Atmosphere was just lovely. Nicely appointed tables, and a variety of seating options for indoor or outdoor. Menu was limited but choices were nice. Food presentation was awesome and totally delicious. Desserts were mouthwatering. Service was friendly but a bit slow when it wasn’t that busy. A bit of waiting in between everything that somewhat ruined the vibe. But definitely worth a stop just be prepared to spend some time.

    Such a lovely experience. My family and I met up with our Irish. Cousins Friday night. The atmosphere was great- food was wonderful- everyone loved their meal. The manager couldn’t have been nicer! She accommodated all 12 of us and make sure we were well taken of.
