Lovely food and staff, it tends to be very busy during peak times. Recommend the chicken wings! Nice walks locally too so can be a nice spot to stop after a hike in the Dublin mountains. Will allow dogs on leash in bear garden.

Had a wonderful meal here tonight , food was excellant but the service was very poor. Floor staff finish at 9:00pm and servive stops.
Very disappointed by manager and general service.

After sitting for 5 minutes - went to find our own menus. After waiting another 10 minutes went to find a waitress to take our order. 30 mins for a sea food chowder and salad.

The chowder was watery and tasteless - very disappointing. The salad was drenched in sauce.

There were 5 or more staff on duty, restaurant was no more than half full. Wont be going back.

We went here to a family christening last year. The food was so beautiful we visited a few times in the months that followed. The service was great that day. More recently I went here with 2 friends. The service was slow and there were mistakes when our order came. The food was still lovely though! We have gone twice since with our young daughter. Both times we had to leave as the waiting time for a table was 45 minutes - we were actually advised to leave by the staff as it's a long wait with a baby. It is a pity it is so busy as the food is really yummy.
