A nice restaurant but slow service two waiter staff but not up to the task of keeping clients happy with levels of service required. Owner needs to look at his serving staff as this is costing him money by not getting the number of covers through the doors by slow service food very nice but it is a business and... More

My twin brother Stephen and I decided to go for a meal here as we had such a great visit on our 50th birthday last year. A lovely restaurant with a superb authentic traditional interior with superb furnishings and decorated tastefully throughout with plenty of seating options both inside and outside. We decided to sit outside were a very pleasant... More

We dined here in October and the food is good and very well flavoured. The main courses are a bir more expensive than in restaurants nearer the old town. Service was good, helpful and friendly. House wine a bit expensive compared to some other local restaurants. Would go back again.

This is the second time we have been to the restaurant and sadly experienced the same problem. The food is nice but fairly basic and uninteresting. Having had fish a lot recently my wife and I both went for the chicken. I ordered chicken chicken with pineapple and bacon. This was presented as two pieces of chicken breast with a... More

This is casual fine dining restaurant that clearly takes pride in it's cuisine and service. The menu is varied with great choices for chicken, beef, pork, and seafood dishes. The chicken, pork tenderloin with plumb sauce, and beef tenderloin with pepper sauce were all superb. The potatoes, vegetables, breads, and complimentary rose port were excellent accompaniments and made for a... More

This restaurant always looked busy so we went and it was great. Came away stuffed. All tasted proper home cooked food and generous portions. Much better than what we got at our hotel. Nice staff.

We tried here as they offered a 3 course meal for slightly over €18. The whole meal was delicious. Amazing tomato soup. The staff were very friendly and the place was spotless. Will be back here again on our next visit
