Haven't been in 12th lock in a while on the suggestion of a friend made a booking Staff friendly and covid compliant. Tables were socially distant and a nice touch being offered a blanket. My friend ordered double portion of brushetta I had fillet steak quiet small portion given the price €33 The steak was served on a rectangular ceramic plate more suitable for a dessert assiate serving. Due to its thickness the food went cold quite quickly.

We went to this restaurant last night and had a lovely meal. Food was excellent, especially the vegetable curry..yum! All the food ordered was very tasty and freshly cooked. We will definitely be back soon. Initially we thought the prices were a little expensive however the quality and presentation of our order made up for this. The staff were very friendly and efficient, our waiter in particular was lovely. Overall we really enjoyed the atmosphere despite the covid restrictions, every effort was made to make the evening enjoyable. The staff followed all covid regulations fully and the place was very clean. The toilets were pristine. Well done!
