This kitchen of this small, clean lined restaurant produces delicious, unfussy food from perfectly fresh local ingredients. The service was friendly, informed and very professional. If we could have gotten reservations, we would have dined there several more nights during our week's stay in Ireland....More

Very nice small restaurant. Very good and apparently reliable (judging from the reviews) food. Appetizers were excellent. Entrees were very good. Prawns were excellent in the monkfish and prawns dinner. Gnocchi was excellent, accompaniments were good. I would return.
