Our waitress was lovely and friendly however we were not asked... More

The menu gives a good choice of food at very reasonable prices, the generous portions of food you receive taste fresh and are nicely presented. Staff are very attentive and are on hand to... More

Had lunch here as a break from a look round Ballina. Service excellent, the staff were really friendly and attentive but not pestering. Food lovely. Would recommend the Fish Chowder - flavour was amazing and really filling although it was only a starter! really good value for money too.

Visited here as it was recommended and the menu is varied! Lots of choices! Decor of place is nice, we ate in the bar area. Staff weren't very friendly or informative. The food took average time, about 20/25 mins to arrive and when it did one of the orders were wrong so staff said the proper order would be ready... More

This is a nice bar and nice food my only grip is they wouldn't do half portions. Portions are big. Food is fresh and tasty.

The food was good and the service attentive. The Irish fare was well prepared and tasty. It has a more diverse menu than many other dinner spots.
