Pizzas, pastas and rice are great. Chicken good too. Portions are huge, prices economical. Staff are super, so kind! Our waiter even removed our balloon from ceiling, no job too big! Absolutely a great find!

No they serve wine and beer delicious!
Hi, Do you cater for coeliac. On receiving your response I would like to book for three, possibly four people at about 7pm - one, me, is coeliac and one other is vegetarian. Thanks and best wishes, Frances Kelleher, Ballymahon 087 9913651
