Its just short of being a five, small front of the house improvements would make it happen. The staff were helpful and the wine recommendation was excellent. We had the crudeens and French onion soup for starters and the lamb and rabbit for mains and the cheese plate and chocolate crepe for dessert. While the view is nice (on the... More

I visit this restaurant after reading reviews on tripadvisor, it is good though I think I expected it to be better. The fresh bread served with starter was lovely, though the waiter was puzzled when I asked if it was a sour dough bread. My husband had steak, it was tasty but not amazing and it was a small steak.... More

This is a French experience transplanted to Limerick, Ireland. It is on a par with the best of Paris and London. A chef/owner who understands seasonal food and discovers cutting edge wine producers in France. Food is great, local Irish fish and beef mixed with French sourced ingredients make for a great experience. No need to travel for a great... More

Duck so succulent that it melts in one's mouth! Vegetables done to perfection and starters and desserts awesome. Staff charming and so attentive. Wonderful ambience. Window seat looking out on the Shannon makes it a very special evening.

My only regret here is that I keep missing this place is that they close is fairly early at 9:30 in the evening and I'm a bit of a late diner and usually miss out but would go out of my way to dine here

Had a wonderful evening here with a group of friends. From the welcome at the door, to the lovely well timed service and the superb food and wine, it was hard to find fault! The birthday girl got a lovely touch for her birthday, with a birthday plate and even a boxed gift of delicious macaroons to take home! A... More

I have eaten here many times as a couple, with friends and with large groups. The food, service and ambiance have always been wonderful. The attention to detail in the food preparation, cooking and presentation go far beyond any other restaurant I've eaten in in Limerick. I particularly love the charcuterie plate, the trio of fish, the rabbit, lamb shank... More
