    Fabulous setting for lunch overlooking seafront with my friend.... Had the Prawn Open sandwich....Prawns were lovely and fresh however the Marie-Rose sauce was blaaaa...lacked seasoning and runny....it matched the blaaa basic brown bread which was not fresh - The sundried tomatoes all of one misplaced with the not so fresh cherry tomatoes that should never have left the kitchen - I would expect more for €15 pricetag...!!! On a positive, our stunning Baked Alaska saved the day alongside the friendly and attentive staff...... Will def be back but not for the Open Prawn Sandwich......🫤

    The 10% gratuity should be entirely optional and not billed. When I saw that I was billed, I opted not to pay a tip, whereas ii would have left a tip no problem if I wasn't billed...

    Food was beautiful. Huge portions and very comforting. Service was a bit slow but we blame the Valentine's Day busyness for that. We had a couple of hours to kill before school pick up. We had mains and planned to have desserts but no one approached us to clear the plates and offer the dessert menu. We tried calling the staff's attention but it was just too busy. We had to leave as it was getting closer to the pick up time. We would definitely go back but will choose a day and time when it isn't too busy.

    We ordered drinks when we arrived they never arrived. Food order taken. Still no drinks. Food arrived. No drinks . Mentioned to staff then drinks arrived. Overall no value for money . Food over priced portions are smaller than usual. Desserts are also overpriced so we didnt order them. Plus paying a service charge and poor service. We wont be back for a long time. We were regular customers but not anymore.

    Excellent staff and food. The flat bread was fabulous. The beef short rib and avocado salad with chicken were delicious. The bread and butter pudding was up there with the best. There would never be any reason to complain, as the staff ask on numerous occasions if everything is OK and to your liking.

    I adore when you find a restaurant that you can’t decide what to choose to eat because everything is delicious. Great options especially with gluten free menu. Very attentive staff, and they give you time with each course.Clean, comfortable and beautiful decor. Highly recommended.

    Very good food and more reasonable than expected. Fillet steak and wings were fantastic. We had a small problem with a cocktail that we didn't think was made properly and it was handled very well by staff. Nice atmosphere for quiet time of week. Would definitely recommend.

    Served 2 fillet steaks , both of which were cold, so we returned them , we were persuaded to try them again. The second attempt was equally as bad with one of the steaks so tough I could hardly cut it, plus the sides we ordered came out 5 mins later and was obvious to us they had been reheated, and they were extremely bland . The restaurant and food is overrated. Never again !

    Lovely food, quite pricey though but ok if for special occasion. Would have been Nicer to be seated in the main restaurant as opposed to the overflow area which doesn't have the same trendy vibe. Service speedy and attentive. 3 starters, 4 mains and 4 cokes and one miwadi (which was €2.70!) for €170 including service which is automatically added. Overall very good, but would request an inner table on booking next time, and wouldn't bother with the miwadi!

    Lovely restaurant and surroundings. Friendly, pleasant staff. Food was delicious but overpriced for what it was. Both of us had a burger, which were delicious and just about hot enough. However, the accompanying skinny fries were cold. They were replaced with fresh, hot fries, not reheated, so well done there. All staff were so eager and helpful, but some lacked training, guidance, support. Could be more professional. Overall, not a bad experience, thank you.
