Some of the staff have a very annoying habit of addressing customers as "lovee" or "darling" which I consider totally unprofessional. The friendliness is very welcome and welcoming but drop the overfamiliarity. Overall a good place to eat and spend a... More

Brilliant menu, catering for all tastes. Presentation second to none and the variety was great. As was the selection of fantastic deserts. Location could not be better, overlooking Garryvoe strand.

Massive helpings. I opted for christmas pudding and custard which was delicious. We were a mixed group of teens and parents and all enjoyed the... More

Normally we go here for lunch, but today it was for dessert. We had a tea and coffee with a doorstep chunk of good Coffee Cake, and a Lemon Meringue pie cupcake. All delicious and sweet and just what the doctor ordered. Evelyn is the best waitress - so friendly and capable, and put us right up at the top... More

The views across to the Ballycotton lighthouse from the terraced restaurant are fabulous. My hubby had the fish and chips and I had the fish pie, they were beautifully cooked and just the right size of portions. Staff are friendly and efficient and you never feel rushed.
