Lovely tucked away cafe is just the treat with their delicious menu! Cost effective as they do a lunch combo with soup and wrap or sandwich and coffee of your choice. Lovely cocktails for those who enjoy them! Also option of virgin cocktails for those who don't drink.

For starter I had possibly the nicest bruschetta I have ever tasted followed by a delicious chicken arrabiata and a seriously indulgent sticky toffee pudding. It was all superb. The staff too were friendly and helpful. I can see why it is so highly rated.

A family meal for 6... The atmosphere is relaxed, good service and a wide range of food available. With a 7 month and 2 year old in our group the staff were really accommodating and went the extra mile. We tried the chicken wings and as has been commented by others they are excellent. Our main course choices varied including... More

We were a party of 8 adults and 4 children and the staff were excellent and delivered great service and food. The chicken wing starters were massive and we ended up bringing a doggy bag from the restaurant. Best place to eat in Maynooth.

We were a table of 6 girl friends catching up after a long time so we had booked a table, we were seated upstairs which was nice as we could chat freely and it wasn't as busy as downstairs. It was nice not to feel rushed through we were given plenty of time to dine. The menu choice was great... More

Went here first time in December. Went with my wife, my cousin and her husband. It was a Saturday night just before Christmas. It was very noisy and crowded. We were upstairs in the middle of tables of very loud and excited women. Possibly on their Christmas Night Out with their co-workers. The food was expensive for what we got.... More

Had pork belly with black pudding mash and husband had Caesar salad, pork looked very unappetizing, would be better to serve Clonakilty pudding alone and some simple mash as both the texture, appearance and taste would be better. Jam was sickly sweet and gravy very strong so in general was an overly rich meal. Salad was standard fare. Lovely glass... More

There are many great choices in Maynooth but this is my favorite! The smoked Haddock fish and chips were soooo good and I loved the way they prepared the mushy peas, (I'm told there was butter involved), much different from other places but really, really good!

Thank P M
