We are here twice while on holiday as it was great. The food was delicious and the waiters very friendly. The place is nice and cozy too with a great view of the lake. Really recommend the tandoori chicken escalope.

A quick detour to see the lovely towns of Ballina & Killaloe. We had a beautiful family meal here. The pork ribs & the penne pasta went down a treat & the children shared a pizza. Would recommend & stop here again

Stopped here around Christmas time for a small bit mid afternoon...some tables were reserved, and options were not what we expected. Atmosphere was nice enough, but not a traditional "Irish Pub" by any means...just a high end restaurant...

Excellent Beef and Guinness stew. But recommend getting a salad as a side. The chips I found were too much. Very filling. Staff know their whiskeys too.... over 100 to choose from!! Was there on a cold and rainy night and it was perfect!
