    The side bar in the Avenue is the perfect place to go for a casual drink with some food to catch up with friends. The stand out for me was the staff - so friendly and happy to give advice on the menu. We ended up getting a few starters to share rather than mains and we were not disappointed. Each dish was a good size and full of colour and flavour. The icing on the cake was the gorgeous cocktails. Highly recommend and we'll definitely be back :)

    2nd time I've been here. What a brilliant restaurant. Staff are brilliant. So attentive and really nice. Leave these people good tips. They deserve it. The atmosphere is great. Very calm. Restaurant was fairly busy for a Wednesday night. Myself and my wife went for dinner and it was delicious!!!!! My starter was my ONLY minus. I had the bruscetta. It was OK, but the tomato was bland, the bread wasn't toasted enough (only the edges, and the middle was soggy) - and the amount of garlic was far too much. And tasted......well not brilliant. The main course was unreal. Poached egg and haddock risotto - wow. Absolutely huge portion and it was unreal. Recommend it. My wife had the beef. Yum!!! We both had the meringue mess. Amazing. 2 ciders and 2 glasses of wine. €100 for it all. Beautiful setting. Great service. I'd take nothing off my score except the bruscetta - personally - was one of the poorest I've ever had. 4.75 / 5 Thank you so much. We'll see you again soon!

    Food and service was top notch. Only criticism is the background music. Please ditch the awful 80s playlist.

    Reserved a table for two about a week in advance for Easter Sunday, and it was our third time to visit this restaurant. We enjoyed our previous visits very much. However, on this visit we were seated under an air conditioning unit, and on a busy walk thru point, close to the staff service & toilets. My wife and I were cold the whole time. We chose the early bird menu, which was good value. My wife has caesar salad starter , which was served in a small bowl which made it very awkward to manipulate a knife & fork to cut large cod lettuce leave, & she found the bacon pieces very hard, & she said there was way too much parmesan cheese in the dish. I had bruschetta starter & it was very tasty and plenty in two slices. First mains my wife had feather blade of beef which she thoroughly enjoyed as did I tge roasted lamb with roasted veggies and roast spuds, & yorkshire pudding. I had a bottle of 0.0. larger & my wife had a large glass of New Zealand sauvignon Blanc. For dessert my wife enjoyed the trio of ice creams & I loved the tiramisu. Americanos for us each ended our meal. Bill was around €96 + tip. Shame about the table being under the active air con on a chilly end of March Sunday.
