A very popular and relaxed restaurant, friendly attentive staff serving what I found to be very tasty food. There were 4 of us so we all picked different dishes and were not disappointed. I wouldn't hesitate in going back.

Great spot! €20 deal offers three courses with plenty of flavours. I started with chicken wings which were delightful. Had the quesadillas for mains, which came out with 4 large ones which were very tasty!

Great location, great staff, great food and even better - €12 for a bottle of pretty decent house red wine! Will definitely be back - €20 early bird for 3 courses and the staff are an absolute lovely bunch :-)

Met friends here for dinner recently (August 2017), we met for an evening meal on a Friday night. Good selection on the menu, we all chose something different. Colourful lively decor, a good spot for a group catch up.

Extensive menu leaves you wanting everything on it, and makes you want to return! I opted for tapas. Fried brie was very good. Spicy wings dry, but delicious. Pork belly a little spicy but very tender. Loaded potato skin with chorizo, exactly how it sounds....More

Two of us ordered a selection of tapas. The dishes were barely hot and the accompanying sauces etc. were all out of a packet. Very poor portions and dreadful presentation. Service was a shocker, no one checked to see if everything was ok and when...More

Down at the back of the restaurant there are a couple of tables to fit a buggy, but it can be a squeeze to get there but grand. And there's loads of baby seats :-)
