    The restaurant is rather small and you would definitely have to book a table, especially at weekends. Outside the door, the wall is adorned with various recommendations, including Bridgestone.

    The decor is bright and cheerful with wood floors and wooden tables. Original paintings adorn the walls along with gargoyle lights. There is also an open fire for chilly evenings.

    The staff are efficient and friendly, willing to explain menu items or suggest a dish.

    Favorite Dish: The owners are Italian and the food is neo-Italian and Irish. Nearly all the ingredients come from the local Organic Centre and the dishes are quite creative.

    For starters, there is warm chicken salad with greens, seafood risotto or swordfish carpaccio with tomatoes and parmesan. For mains, I like the duck breast with spinach and pinenuts but there is also osterich on a bed of rocket, spicy paella or several different pastas.

    Desserts are the main attraction for us. When we were last there, GF had a white chocolate panna cotta with a passion fruit and dessert wine sauce and I had strawberry and cardamom creme brulee.

    The average cost for a 3-course meal with wine is about€43 per person.
