What our Customers are saying

Highly recommended for everyone

We felt very welcome and comfortable in the restaurant. The staff were fantastic and very friendly, so nice to have staff that know their menu and wines. The food was to die for especially my duck salad to start, perfection! The early bird menu was gorgeous and fantastic value for money. We cant wait to go back and try the rest. Thank you for a wonderful evening Iwill highly recommend you.

Beautiful Food

We had an early table and a very reasonable Early Bird 5 course meal for €35 each. For Michelin star quality food, it’s an excellent price!  There’s lots of variety on the menu so something for everyone, beautifully cooked, high quality food. Very tasty!   Lovely friendly staff and the owner and head chef made the effort to come and see us to say hello and thank you for visiting.  I would absolutely return!

Currently Closed

From Monday the 9th of November my beloved husband, our chef and patron Steven, has to have a series of operations to remove thrombosis in his legs caused by extensive time on his feet over many years. He also has a heart murmur which now needs urgent treatment.
All this means that we have no option but to close until Steven has fully recovered. At this time we don’t know when that will be but we will aim to re-open when Steven can walk again.
As you know Steven loves creating and cooking his special food and will miss it during this time as well as miss seeing you all. Thank you everyone for your support and we all look forwards to seeing you as and when possible again.
