Great evening meal last Saturday...view of the port in heated conservatory. Great fresh food, friendly attentive service. Get there by turning when you see Cox's then follow your nose to the port. Recommend.

Went here for a bite to eat with my friend, neither of us were very hungry so we just opted for starters and desserts, they were delicious and generous portions, we left feeling full and satisfied, I'll definitely be back, well done guys

On our return journey to Dublin we decided to stop by and found this beautiful gem. Had everything we needed including a small play area for the children. Food was absolutely fabulous and the waitresses went above and beyond to make sure we had everything to our liking. It's not often nowadays you get service like it. Couldn't recommend it... More

The title says it all. We started our evening with a glass of wine by the harbour, moved inside (still great view of the water), had a lovely dinner, great service, very tasty food, good wine. Best of all very re- asonably priced. Totally looking forward to my next visit. Keep up the good work folks- lovely place to visit

While there was nothing wrong with our food and the service was good, I just feel that if this place had an overhaul, better management and extended menu , it would be a goldmine! Location is fantastic but place is closed on a bank holiday Monday!!!!! When they extended the property, they put up a second rate " conservatory "... More

I love it here! Any time I visit I have to comment on how gorgeous the food and staff are. The chef/owner is such a lovely guy and would do anything to accommodate the customers needs. So nice and friendly. Such a relaxed atmosphere. Can't give enough credit to this little gem. Always be back!
