Ate here with 10 friends and we had a great experience. Broad selection on menu, catered for all tastes! Lots of sides & friendly service. Steak got thumbs up but might give the chowder a miss next time. Banoffi to die for!! :) Decor was modern and cosy at the same time - on point. Great experience, we'll remember Westport... More

We found this restaurant walking around Westport during the day and liked the menu so we said we'd come back that night, the service was second to none, the food was amazing and very reasonable priced, the desserts were delicious and they even brought out a selection of desserts on the house! I'd recommend anyone looking for somewhere really nice... More

What a find! Had an amazing Sunday lunch here with 8 friends. Great selection of dishes. Had Seafood Chowder to start. It was so filling. Smoked Salmon Risotto to follow. Beautiful. Share a few desserts which were beautifully presented. Staff friendly. Hidden gem. Go!

The location/staff/atmosphere was absolute perfection and we were lucky to get a reservation on a Saturday night. However,the food was a tad overcomplicated in terms of flavour and presentation, something that wasn't needed for steaks or seafood. I would recommend ditching the washy pink plates and sweet bread, the food was good quality but the dining experience could have been... More

A lovely upper floor restaurant with good varied menu offering interesting contemporary choices, imaginatively presented, along with classic pizzas and pastas. High standard, good quality, and Alannah looked after our needs very well. Will definitely visit again when we return to Westport.

This was a very reasonably priced restaurant in the centre of Westport. The staff were very friendly. My husband had the pizza which was great! I had the spaghetti carbonara which was average. The wine was delicious and the complimentary mini desert was much appreciated!

What a lovely wee hidden gem, just off the street. Front of the building does not look like much, but inside the food is simply fantastic, while the attention from the staff is simply out of this world - we were served by Jean. There were four of us. Each one of us had one of the nicest meals in... More

We have eaten here a number of times and after each occasion, we know that we will be back again. The presentation alone of all servings is to be seen, and the actual food is excellent. The hostess and her staff are faultless in their engagement with customers, and builds a relationship with each of her customers. All in all,... More
