“Kudos to the Staff”
Reviewed March 5, 2017

We had made this reservation a few weeks earlier from America, but when we arrived they had said the reservation was set for the week before and we did not show up. Having seven of us and this place not being very big (and packed at the time), we thought we were in trouble....NOPE - they asked for a few minutes and found us a table - nicely done.

My wife had pumpkin ravioli which was outstanding and I had steak tar tar over pasta with cream sauce. The tar tar looked like uncooked hamburger, but it was actually delicious. We also had the lobster salad, which was fair at best. The house wine here was really good.

Be aware that they do not remove the dinner plates until every single person at the table is finished eating (this was at most places, but we asked them to remove a few of our plates here and they said "not yet" which we found funny.).

Great food, great people - nicely done.

“Good, but not as good as other reviewers seem to think”
Reviewed February 21, 2017 via mobile

Perfectly nice place with friendly service. No complaints. Food was of a good standard but not brilliant. I enjoyed it but was not blown away. Presentation of food was incredible- clearly one for the instagram generation.

Steak tartare was ok but poor texture due to minced tomatoes and over cooked rosti. Wife's steamed shellfish in tomato sauce was great- maybe best thing on the menu. Suckling pig with roots purée was very pleasant and slow cooked apple really enhanced sweetness. Wife had seafood carbonara which she liked but I thought was bland.

Overall - a good restaurant but of what I'd call the expected standard of proficiency if this was in London. Maybe I'm spoilt. Certainly way better than most places would be, but not reaching to an amazing rating. Still must emphasise - genuinely no complaints and the food was good. If you're in the area give it a try.

“Good food”
Reviewed February 10, 2017 via mobile

Nice atmosphere and good food. Can recommend the seafood platter starter and hot chocolate. Possibly the best Mojito i've ever tried and i've tried a fair few, i thought €7 was very reasonable too.

“Generally good”
Reviewed February 6, 2017

Food very good, including vegetarian. Service was pleasant but friendliness varied between individual staff members. Shout out for the short-haired lady who was lovely throughout and took the time to walk us through our edible options.

“Lovely relaxing lunch”
Reviewed February 5, 2017 via mobile

Great lunch - ricotta ravioli and carbonara for main. Prosecco for €3 a glass. Amazing tiramisu and dark hot chocolate.

We were lucky as came relatively early (12.30) and got a table - ended up being really busy and full when we left.
