Myself and my husband had booking for 7pm which was organised by our b and b. We were running late and rang them, no problem changing our reservation. The service was excellent and the steak I had was delicious. Would definitely recommend a visit here

Lovely restaurant down by the river in a very picturesque part of Athlone. The menu was varied with a good early bird option. Nice atmosphere and the food was perfect, great quality and very filling. We will definitely be back.

Wonderful menu, superb ingredients and excellent execution. Had great lunch and only sorry I hadn't time for dinner on another day! Location and service unobtrusive, but well worth finding.
