Absolutely beautiful place, the staff were amazing and the food was delicious. Considering our party consisted of 4 adults and 6 children the service was faultless.

Really friendly staff, and the food was great. We had the meat, and seafood sharing platter and really enjoyed them both. The seafood platter was especially good. Highly recommend a visit if you're in Macroom.

Stopped here while driving through macroom. The restaurant is in a lovely spot being adjacent to an old church. The staff were lovely. The potato & bacon cake was really good and the food overall was great value. A great place to stop for a bite.

If I hadn't found this on Tripadvisor I wouldn't have gone there - it is inconspicuously located and the outside gives no view to the interior, so there were no signs of the lovely restaurant behind the solid door. The name doesn't even imply a restaurant! We were surprised to find a busy and buzzing restaurant with a good menu... More

One time I tried the tapas which were not great, the nachos were dry and you are expected to put them together yourself.

We were disappointed. I didn't feel it was in any way authentic. The food was not nearly as tasty as I... More

A really lovely dining experience, excellent freshly cooked food, using many local products. Always welcoming and friendly and a lovely place to celebrate a family event or meet with a group of friends. The home baked bread is superb.

Have eaten here a few times and it's always a pleasant experience. Nice menu with a lot of variety, particularly for vegetarians which is fantastic given the general disdain with which they're often treated in this country. Overall really good, looking forward to eating here again.
