Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Everything about our meal was excellent, fresh, tasty and perfectly cooked . It’s clear that the chef here is passionate about what he does. The attention to little details and touches make such a difference. Everyone ordered fish , I had black sole from specials...menu, beautiful piece of fish cooked perfectly. Starters were very tasty , homemade desserts perfect. One of the best dining out experiences I have had . Staff very friendly and efficient, service was excellent.More

We booked here for Friday night and it was a good job that we did. The restaurant was full and no wonder. The service was second to none, warm, friendly and very quick. The food was all well prepared and each course was of a...very high standard. It was clear that these people know what they’re doing in the kitchen. €140 for the two of us ands well worth it.More

Sunday lunch was amazing. The presentation of the food was excellent & the mash is so good with the’real butter’ oozing out of it 😋. We travelled over 2 hours to join my sister Mag & her husband Peter who eat here very regularly (whenever...they can get a table on Sundays) The staff are so friendly and helpful. Bottle of Chilean wine good price €25… no extra charge for the mushrooms & onions served with the Ribeye steak ..nice touch!! Looking forward to returning soon and will be recommending it to our friends😎More

Annual visit whilst visiting friends. My Grandson declared it the best steak he had ever tasted and that applies to the rest of the food. Never disappoints for quality and service

This lovely restaurant was recommended by our b and b. What a great place - staff were very friendly and efficient and the food was delicious. Had the most wonderful scampi starter and the fillet steak was huge but ate it all as so good!...On our experience would definitely recommend and you need to book in advance as not many tables.More

What a find! Food was superb, had crab toes in garlic butter, served with mini roasted potato croutons and bok choy, they were fantastic, my partner had a streak and said it was the best fillet he had in years. Restaurant was small and intimate...and service was excellent, highly recommend, book well in advance! Wish it was in Dublin.More

Outstanding. Everything from start to finish was amazing. Great servers. So good I thought they might be owners but best of all the head chef was the owner.

After reading some other reviews and recommendations from some locals myself and my husband had dinner here last night and it was superb. As the restaurant is small early bookings would be essential especially if you are only visiting the area. The menu is small...and perfectly formed I had the warm piri piri chicken salad and my husband had the scampi both dishes were fantastic and we also had some Guinness bread with it. We both had ribeye with mash and veg and Brady pepper sauce. I can honestly say it was one of the nicest meals I have ever had in a restaurant. Service was super efficient and we are already planning on coming back to the area to treat ourselves again. Amazing find.More
