My Husband and I have eaten here several times and have never had a bad meal here. It just gets better and better. The food is excellent and the staff are very attentive and always notice when you need more water or if you have finished eating. I normally order the thai chicken curry which is delicious. The portions are also a good size. They do an excellent value menu for 2 which includes a starter, main course and a bottle of wine for under €40 which is excellent value. Most definitely a hidden gem which never dissapoints.

My husband and I visited here for a casual bite to eat on a Tuesday evening and were a bit hesitant at first as there was no one else in the restaurant. The decor is a bit dated but is very clean and has quite a homely feel. It was 3 mins past 7 when we entered and when I asked about the earlybird the waitress informed me that it is only available until 7 and it was now after 7. This is fair enough however as we were the only customers in the place, I thought she could have allowed us the early bird menu. We ordered Garlic mushrooms to share which were very tasty and were served with a homemade garlic mayo and a salad garnish. We both had Pizza as our main course which was very good with a nice thin base and plenty of toppings. The waitrss then brought garlic and chilli oil to the table which was a nice touch. The house red was a lovely Italian wine and appeared to be good value at €17.50 a bottle. After we had finished our pizzas, we had to wait almost half an hour for the waitress to come and take our plates away and I had to ask her if we could order coffees. We finished off our meal with 2 coffees. The bill came to just under €60 for 1starter, 2 pizzas, a bottle of house wine and 2 coffees which I felt was a little bit overpriced for what we got. The food was ok but nothing outstanding and reminded me of typical holiday resort food. Overall, its worth a vist but is probably more suited for a casual bite to eat than a romantic meal. I dont think I would be running back here in a hurry.
