Have had lunch and an early evening meal here recently and on both occasions the food was really really good. Very high standard for bar food - everything was delicious and service also good.

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