My boyfriend and I decided to celebrate our first year together as a couple and I booked this restaurant. The one problem we encountered was that although I had received an email that the booking was confirmed when we arrived we were not listed as having pre booked a table. Luckily there were extra tables and the staff were very nice about it. So I would advise ringing ahead just in case. The staff were very personable and polite. My mother had recommended the restaurant for this reason. Although it is also a bar in the style of a good old fashion pub it wasn't too noisy and the atmosphere was very relaxed. The food was terrific, I had a steak which was medium just as I asked for. I have been going to restaurants since I was quite young so I know how common it is for the chef to overcook steak. It also was good quality steak. Again sometimes when I've gone out and ordered steak it is served with thick layer of greasy fat on it. Luckily this was the exception. The boyfriend ordered beef fajita as he is not an adventurous eater. It was very nicely done and was presented very well. I thought it was good but he said he would have preferred a bit more meat. Dessert was lovely. I would highly recommend the blackberry meringue. Although it would be nice if there had been more blackberries as the meringue was quite large and extra fruit would have added a refreshing zing to it. The boyfriend had a chocolate raspberry sponge torte cake which was again lovely but fresh whole raspberries would have been a welcome addition. When we got the bill it wasn't bad considering although I think it could have been a bit less costly. Also there wasn't anywhere nearby other then Nenagh to draw out cash which could be a problem. On the whole it was a nice night out and we throughly enjoyed ourselves so thank you very much
