We only had main courses, her risotto was cold and my monkfish dish was quite bland, it came with microwaved veg which was a big disappointment given that it was a dish of the day and cost €26. Service was also lacking.

Myself and my husband had booking for 7pm which was organised by our b and b. We were running late and rang them, no problem changing our reservation. The service was excellent and the steak I had was delicious. Would definitely recommend a visit here
