Good, quite healthy food, for a good price. Best chicken I have eaten in Ireland. Friendly staff, fast serving. Only negative thing, that it is not so spacious, not so reccomended for big groups.

Casey - for our tapas nights (thurs, fri, sat) we can handle up to c. 45 at any one time (pretty much our max seating). We're very close to the glasshouse (100yards). Hope this helps David (knox)
