What a pleasure it was to dine here. Great quality food well presented and created by a chef and a kitchen that likes to explore new cooking ideas. Top that with great service and you have a restaurant that you can highly recommend to everyone.

We had an excellent meal at Ryan's. Unique menu items to be found a very good wine list and good service. The room is basic, Ryan's is all about the food and they deliver on that

When you go into a recommended restaurant and find the menu includes items like Pulled Duck “Koeksuster”, or Prawn Tapioca “Pudding” (shades of those awful school lunches?) you might wonder what you have let yourself in for....... Fear not, gird your loins, and trot on...More
