Four of us lunched here in early march, nicely situated with sea view and convenient parking. The interior is stylish and attractive and created a relaxing ambience. The round tables in the booths are cosy and a nicely private. The staff were all friendly and...attentive. Food was served promptly and was very tasty. The menu was varied and along with a couple of beers and cocktails, and coffees, a very enjoyable experience was had.More

One of the best restaurants I've been to in Dublin. Deco, ambience, staff, food , drinks. All fab. Steak was as soft as butter.

Lovely restaurant by the sea, beautifully decorated and spacious! Very comfortable seating, staff are very polite and friendly. We got pasta with beef ragu, a beetroot salad and mushroom risotto, all very tasty,well cooked and with added details in the plate that I haven’t tasted...before. Prices don’t reflect the quality as I felt we paid less compared to restaurants that are not of this caliber, given the big portions and the quality of the ingredients. Unfortunately a visitor so I won’t be able to go back. Maybe in the future when we visit Ireland again.More

Last minute booking after racing at Leopardstown. Easy to book online with immediate confirmation. Front of house service was absolutely exceptional. Great food, the stir fry is highly recommended. Would recommend and will definitely return.

We went twice in same week once for lunch and once for dinner on different days. Very good food although it reached my table a bit cold, well presented but warm only, I like hot food to be really hot, steamy, personal preference, it gave...me the impression it sat a bit too long in the kitchen waiting to be served. The atmosphere is casual and maybe a bit more formal for dinner, friendly service, good portions. Suggest a reservation be made to get a table by the windows with view to the ocean, although not really close since the sea is really across the road you can still enjoy very nice views. Ocean view not relevant for dinner since it gets dark by 5:00 pm. during this time of the year (Winter). Plenty of parking across the road by the seashore. Overall a decent place with good food, friendly service at fair prices.More

Saturday evening 11th January and we had booked a table here for a celebratory meal for a family members significant birthday. There was a pre-arranged set menu, starters and main courses available, there was a large choice on offer, something to suit everyone. It included,...Thai curry, sea trout, rib of beef, supreme of chicken or sirloin steak. Drinks prices were reasonable and not over priced. The staff were friendly, polite and attentive and looked after us really well. They ensured that everyone one was well looked after. The building could have been a railway shed or boathouse, in its past. The decor, in this spacious restaurant, was rather interesting with exposed brick wall and medieval style wall mounted candlelight fittings.More

The food portions are massive however the quality of the food seems to suffer as there was very little taste. When we asked for the wine menu it was tiny for a restaurant of this calibre and people would pay more for quality wine.More
