After a visit to Athlone Castle we found this fab bistro within walking distance. Excellent food for young and old alike. Great selection on offer. All homemade, including breads, yum. Very reasonably priced. If you fancy a glass of wine with your meal, great selection....More

We only had main courses, her risotto was cold and my monkfish dish was quite bland, it came with microwaved veg which was a big disappointment given that it was a dish of the day and cost €26. Service was also lacking.
