We visited on a Sunday when the place was starting to fill up. This cafe is quite large, with a strong art deco theme inside and out. The staff were friendly and efficient. Menu was limited unless you wanted a full lunch, but we still found plenty to satisfy us. We would definitely visit this place again.

Another lovely meal. Treated ourselves on a recent trip to Ireland. Meal so tasty and great value. The waiting staff attentive without being creepy. We have been with family on another occasion and they lovely the large portions.

Great food and service, a visit is a must every time we are in Buncrana.Great selection for kids. Small outdoor seating which is nice for those that still smoke.

It has been some time since we were last here we are pleased to say it is as good as ever. It seems to be that we read all the menu which is pointless as we know we will order chicken curry in any case. How they manage to be so consistently good with the meals even on quiet days... More

The service is great, the portions are huge and great value for money (€12.90 for 2 courses) We had to wait around 30 minutes for a table on a busy Sunday (I see a packed restaurant as a good sign) so we went to...
