A group of us went for dinner there at the weekend, the staff made us feel very welcome and looked after us very well. Excellent value for money, a three course meal for two people with wine only €60. Great selection of food that was very tasty! Loved it!

I would not expect the level of quality food served on the €10 deal. Excellent steak! Very loud and busy but worth it. Make reservations!

Booked this for a family birthday dinner for a party of 12 with varied taste. It was an early booking as one of our party had to leave for work and the staff facilitated serving that person early. Everyone enjoyed what they got and as it was the early bird menu it was great value. Great choice on the menu.... More

Found this excellent family owned restaurant by accident and we were so glad we did! The staff were all very friendly and made the effort to make one feel very welcome. A special mention for Anna who was very helpful in explaining the menu as I have a difficult dietary requirement. The menu offers a good range of dishes which... More

Good food, we were a large group and they times the food very well. There are 2 vegan options on the menu but no desserts unfortunately. Organic wine available. 10euros all courses on Wednesday so well worth it!

I've eaten here a few times, and my favourite dishes are the paella and the steak. We ordered the dessert platter and it was devoured. Staff are lovely too. All cooked perfection. Great atmosphere and very good value, wide selection of wine also.
