This use to be a fine restaurant with good atmosphere, offering Dundalk a little something different but of late it has become very grubby and the bar staff are immature & unprofessional. The toilets barely work, the smoking area is very unpleasant and the cocktails use to be good but now are made with cheap cordial but at the same... More

The place looks small from the outside but it's a little gem. Went on recommendation of a relation and thanked them for it. Their tapas are amazing and the staff are lovely. Genuinely look forward to going back again.

Great service and food. The big windows were open and it reminded me of a bar in New York. The food was delicious and came out quickly - we wee a large group of 17 and everyone was very happy with their choices and the service.

5* service! Food was absolutely beautiful, especially the prawns. To die for! Will definitely return and I'll be advising anyone to eat here. The cocktails are also scrumptious. Worth every penny spent! Thanks for a really enjoyable night.

Was the most disappointed view in my life. 1) We were annoyed by the waitress twice if we would like to order. So we already ordered through one and then the second appears. (Was not the biggest problem) 2) It is a real poor quantity of choice for vegetarians. 3) I paid for a small bowl of olives 6.95€(!!!) You... More
