Went to this place last weekend with friends to have dinner and it was an amazing experience. The staff were so helpful and friendly and ensured we were happy the whole time we were there. The food was delicious and well worth the money! For price and quality of food and atmosphere, I would recommend this place.

Delighted with this restaurant. My family and I were staying in carlingford for my dad's 60th birthday and we hadn't gotten around to booking anywhere to eat for Saturday evening. We decided to ask on the off chance on the Saturday afternoon if they could accommodate us - 8 adults, 2children&2 babies - but didn't think we had a chance!... More
