Three of us went there and had the December menu. My companions had the mackerel and beetroot. I had the crispy pigs ear. Their two starters were absolutely delicious. Mine was slightly disappointing- the only equivalent I can think of is a spring roll. I had venison for the main course. They had gnocchi and Halibut. The waiters asked did we want sides but we have been stung so often in Dublin by paying vast sums extra for sides all said no. I didn't realise the sides were included in the main dish. My venison was the best I have ever tasted. Absolutely pink and cut with a fork. On top of it was what may have been either string of burnt apples or onions but they were so salty it was hard to tell.The staff generally were excellent but when I mentioned this to the person who took away the plates they were less than pleased. The rest of the dish was absolutely delicious as were my companions. Without the sides the portions were extremely small. I had a medjoul date pudding with burnt treacle ice cream and one of the others had the chocolate tart- both excellent. The other asked for cheese and was told there was only one type available. Two excellent bottles of Portuguese grous. Do not pick the round table in the middle. Too much traffic. Finally they asked two of us to move closer together to make room. The room itself is lovely. Total cost with tip €90 per head. It is really very good and all of the minor problems could easily be cured.
