I visited this restaurant in April and had a fabolous meal. However this was not repeated this time. We went again last night using an offer for 3 courses and 2 sides for €50 for 2 people. We had calamari rings and pork belly for starter which were lovely. We had fish skillet and fish stew for main course. We had crispy fries and roast potatoes with bacon croutons. The latter were lovely but former were just okay. We ordered the apple and pear crumble with lemon curd and honey comb ice-cream. This was disappointing. I think this time the food lacked the attention to detail. The lemon curd was over done and it no longer had the wow factor. Also a stray frie ended up in my starter. It is a pity as the waiter and waitress are very attentive. I just hope they will raise their standards again in the food department.

Mains were not as good as starters. Seabass served with lettuce leaves was disappointing as salad dressing overpowered fish. Seafood medley was bland.

We had the most wonderful meal here. The courses were so well executed and bursting with different flavours. The waiters were very attentive. For starters we had fish tacos and calamari rings and for main course we had duck leg confit and skillet of fish and we orderd crispy fires and baby roasties. We shared an apple and pear crumbel with lemon curd and ice-cream. Food was faboulous. Need i say anymore. We will definitely be back and good value too

Had a wonderful brunch here one Sat after Christmas so returned for dinner with my husband. Lovely restaurant with booths along one wall and well laid out tables. Staff friendly and helpful. Food delicious with amazing flavours. I had the Moroccan flatbread to begin, then opted for 2 starters for the main course - Crayfish salad and the Fish tacos. My husband had the Elephant Wings and the rib eye steak. We had crispy chips sand baby roasties on the side. Both of us had desserts - they were a perfect end to a great meal - we will definitely be back.

Outstanding restaurant and what a find... Food is great value and different from most suburban fare.Unusual dishes like the superb fish taco's, crayfish salad are just part of an eclectic menu where everything seems to work. A wide variety of fish dishes, duch, beef and lamd.. Something for every taste.. Since it opened a few months ago every meal has been sublime. Flavours are gourmet and the service is friendly and casual. A great place to go with friends where the food and wine is superb and the bill won't break your heart. Highly recommended.
