    Lovely meal and service. Unfortunately a large table of people sang extremely loudly for a lot of our meal and did so with no regard to the other diners in the restaurant.

    We are frequently visiting this little gem, just above O'Brines pub. Always the same quality of food, service and atmosphere. Can't really fault it. Very good when you are visiting with kids. Our kids loved the non-alcoholic mocktails they have been offered. We will be back soon. Thank you again

    Dinner for 4 - all very happy with choices. Staff were very good and helpful. Saturday night ambience but still comfortable. Has a local feel to it with pub downstairs and very convenient to our Hotel. Bit pricey but we will be back

    We went here to celebrate a birthday while we were in town and had the best time. Food was excellent, the service was great and ended our meal with the best espresso martinis we’d ever had! The ambiance was perfect for a cozy dinner with friends. Would highly recommend! The pub downstairs was also a great time!
