    One of Kildare’s best restaurants - thoroughly modern cooking with fantastic flavours & small menu in Scandi style room but utterly unpretentious. One dessert of meringue, grapefruit curd & goats milk foam was unforgettable. Pop into their funky bar afterwards for cocktails & tunes.

    Some constructive feedback, more choices available would have been better. Couldn't have a glass of red wine with food, as the bar was closed we were told. Asked for dessert menu and was told to go outside and look at what we have on display and come back and let them know what you want. Male toilet was signposted out of order but no instruction what to do or an alternative. I think there is a relaxed atmosphere with the staff but think it's too relaxed and too casual. We were really looking forward to coming in as we loved the old Ubh and were regulars. The food was very nice but the overall experience was a let down. Its a shame as this restaurant has great potential. We won't be returning any time soon. I don't usually do reviews but felt this one was needed.

    Great service, nearly over-doing the questions - "is everything okay?" Very, very attentive staff. Lovely food, didn't have to wait too long for food. Really enjoyed it. Lovely buzz in the place. It filled up very quickly. Wasn't impressed with the music but as it got busier, that coudn't be heard. A little on the expensive side for me but I'd like to go again.
