I purchased a groupon for €49 for two starters, two mains and wine or beer. We intended to go on my husbands birthday that coming Saturday. I rang to book the table on a Tuesday, the lady that answered the phone asked me to hold for a second, 5 mins later I hung up and called back and she said she had forgotten about me. Proceeded to make the reservation and at the end of the call I advised I had a groupon voucher, she then advised me she had no tables to offer me, I queried this as this was not in the T&C's it simply stated if for use on the weekend to book early - I would consider booking on a Tuesday for a Saturday dinner early. She then said she couldn't offer me a table in case they are busy that night, I said it didn't state this anywhere in the T&C's and that they clearly had a table to offer me, she said she would have to speak to her manager and they would call me back. In the meantime I cancelled the groupon and got a refund. I still haven't received a call back from them and I would suggest the lady in question take some training for her telephone manner. I wouldn't bother with a groupon unless you want to use it midweek when it suits them.

Hi Amy, I'm very sorry to hear about your experience. I will look into this for you. We do have a restriction on the number of Groupon bookings we can accommodate at the weekend but the manager should have called you back to explain. Karen

My daughter and I arrived late morning & were starving!. Looking at the small row of restaurants across from our hotel, we just chose one, unknowing. We expected just basic food, for a basic price. We got much more. The food was excellent, as was the service. Don't let the small space deter you, worth a visit.

The place is correct, but the food was quite disappointing, the burger is one of the worst I’ve ever had

Had the early bird here with a friend.
Reasonable price for starter, main and a drink.
Could not fault the Guinness
Starter of pan fried prawns was spot on a very tasty.
Main course of prawns tagliatelle was delicious, but, it was the meanest little portion, it was gone in about 3 bites.
Had a 2nd pint after dinner to let it all settle but was still hungry after.
Dessert of death by chocolate... on the button.

Staff were pleasant and efficient.
Premises was clean, comfortable and warm.

3/5 because the early bird of €22 left me hungry but what I got was excellent so for the sake of 50g-75g of tagliatelle per dish would be closer to top marks.

Recently visited for dinner. The food was lovely as was the wine. Service was ok. Tables all very close together and felt more like a cafe than restaurant. Enjoyed our meal but thought was on the pricey side.
