Food and service perfect. Steak was sublime, so tender you could have cut it with a spoon. Scallops to start also excellent. Would definitely recommend.

The atmosphere and the food were simply amazing. I got 1kg steak to share. It was delicious and well cooked. The main course included a couple of sides as well (chips, mash). Highly recommended! The price was fair as well!

Have visited twice, and eaten really good the both times. They have some really nice options on the meat. I also liked the Gin Menu that had some really nice drinks

A really good dining experience, excellent food. We were a party of 10 celebrating family gathering from U.S.A. / U.K. / Ireland. There was a surcharge of twelve (12,1/2%) for 6 persons or over. This was stated on the menu, Steaks started at 25Euro. Needless...More
