    What a hidden treasure! Had a lovely weekend in Dunfanaghy. Great walks and scenery & so delighted to find this gem! Will plan another visit soon ( unfortunately we live 4 hours away- if not I’d be there next week!)

    Lovely pizzas as always. Brie starter was delicious and we called in earlier and asked for a bottle of wine to be at room temperature (as they are stored at the desk outside) and the chef had it in the kitchen! Good food, great atmosphere. Will be back!

    Pizzas excellent as always. Nice and warm in the shed. Service great. Only negative was the red wine is stored at the reception desk which is outside and was cold on arrival at the table. Would be much better if kept in shed/inside so it can be at room temperature at the table. 👍

    Brilliant service, relaxed atmosphere and excellent food. Staff made a fuss of our three kids and they loved it! They didn't even complain when the little one had an accident on his seat because he was too focused on his delicious dessert.

    Awesome pizza in a lovely quirky restaurant! Staff were very friendly and helpful. The only minus is they dont take card payment and we had no cash so had to use the ATM outside which charged us £44 sterling for €40 which is pretty scandalous. Think they should make it clear when you book that is cash only!

    We had a great evening with good food and drink, in a great atmosphere. The only small issue was that the kale on the duck special pizza was burnt and when this was brought to the attention of the waitress she did not respond in any way.
