I loved the place, location, food and drinks (cocktails are very good) and most importantly the wonderful staff. Awesome ambience and 30's music selection. Thank you guys for the experience, see you soon.

This was one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten at on this tour. We had three choices and we were lucky to have chosen this place. Wonderful wait staff. The food was excellent. Every level of the meal was extremely good. Do not miss finding this little jewel.

Cosy Easter Sunday dinner for three was just what we hoped for. The staff were friendly and attentive, and the food was inventive, artistically presented and tasted great. We shared a few small plates first and had a main course each which worked well for us. The smoked salmon & the market fish were particular favourites but honestly couldn't fault... More

I had the risotto and... More

My friend and I visited for dinner. We shared the pork belly starter, then had the fish of the day (snapper) with pasta and the risotto, and for dessert we had the panna cotta and the chocolate mousse cake. All washed down with some yummy gin cocktails. Truly scrumptious meal in a fun setting. Highly recommended for a top notch... More

Absolutely delicious food, every single bite was a treat. We had prawns and beef cheek for entree, market fish and fillet steak for main and shared a Bavarian for dessert. Pretty as a picture on the plate and exquisite on the palate. Service was on point both friendly and efficient without being over baring. Cocktails were amazing! Do yourself a... More

I decided to celebrate a significant birthday at Hummingbird for 22 people last Saturday night. What a night! They nailed it beyond my expectations. From the set up conversations with Sinead and her checking in both before, during and after the event (customer service that I've not experienced to date outside of Europe), to the food and great table service...

Our group of 6 enjoyed a very good meal at this venue. The restaurant has a rustic decor with exposed brick and cement beams with hummingbirds as the occasional features on the walls. A warm and engaging atmosphere, and the bar area was busy and vibrant. We were welcomed by Sinead, the restaurant Manager, who provided first class helpful and... More
