My second visit and it did not disappoint. We were using an IrishTimes 'Rewarding Times' voucher which is exceptional value, €69 for 3 courses for 2, including wine up to €30!! If you want the best steak ever - dine there!

Unfortunately I was not given a table even though at least 4 tables (each one of them for 2 people) were free. They were probably waiting for at least 2 people to sit but that is not the way to treat customers.More

Yes and both types and if they don't have what you want, someone will pop next door to Bow Lane and get it from there.
