We loved the atmosphere and vibe of the place. Unexpected- good tapas in Western Ireland. The patatas bravas, prawns, and Catalan Ratatouille we're excellent. The seafood paella was okay but it lacked chorizo for kick and it lacked the crispy bottom one loves. On the whole, I would recommend.

We ate at this restaurant twice because we loved it so much.
The atmosphere is great, the service and food even better.
We had the most lovely waitress' which recommended amazing food and wine. The restaurant was more than accomodating as we did not book the first time. However it does get really busy so I suggest showing up early for dinner so you aren't disappointed if you can't get a table. I can not fault the meal or experience.
The restaurant is tapas style, all of the dishes are so yummy. We have eaten a lot of food all over Ireland the last two weeks and just fell in love with this place so we came back twice :) I highly recommend eating here!

Thankfully we had booked a table here. We saw many would-be diners turned away on a busy summer night. The food and wine were fabulous, but the service was a little rushed and curt. As I say, it was busy, but we would have loved to have felt more welcome and relaxed throughout the meal. I can't fault the kitchen: the chorizo was gorgeous! I'm sure the servers were rather worn out by the influx of people, too, but the atmosphere did take a little away from our enjoyment.
