Stopped in here for a quick lunch. Had breast of chicken in a brandy sauce off the specials menu. Served with lovely chips and loads of salad. No hanging around which is great at lunchtime.

Excellent well proportioned lunchtime food and nice friendly service. I was told it was 'the place to go' in Ballina and I was disappointed.

I had dinner with a friend at Bar Square. The service was good. The food was lovely and well presented. I had prawns in a basket they were very tasty. My friend had the Cajun chicken and said it was very nice.
