It was very good food! Our server was great! My only complaint is that its a little expensive. We got there around 1:30 and it was pretty busy but I don't think we waited more than 15 min.

Enjoyable meal. Ask about the specials. Have a chat with the staff if they aren't too busy. Fun place to eat the night before the Skelligs.
