The setting is beautiful in a small courtyard with overhanging trees and tables on the cobbles. It had a very Mediterranean feel to it. There are tables inside but if it is a warm evening it is worth staying outside. The food was very good and so was the service. I think it was a 'bring your own wine' restaurant... More

We enjoyed a quiet lunch away from the hordes. A simple lunch menu produced one of the best seafood chowders I have tasted. Very reasonable price and a local Sauvignon Blanc that I was familiar with. Good simple food. Perfect!

The pasta sauce was very flavourful but the noodles... More

Stumbled across this great little place while wandering through the very prettying Parnell. The restaurant is located in a lovely little courtyard off the main street , with a choice of inside and outside seating. The service was excellent and we sought and received great advice about our menu choices. The food was outstanding and the seafood platter for two... More
