The food and service were first class; the seven of us had a good selection from the menu, but I had the chorizo and black pudding starter (superb) and shared a chateau briand cooked medium-rare with my wife. The meat was excellent and perfectly cooked. The meal was graced by the entertainment of a guitarist who was excellent; rather than being intrusive he was a great accompaniment to the evening and was loudly applauded. We finished off with coffee and were served some free liqueurs...the caramel vodka was amazing. Thank you to the manager and the staff... we'll definitely be going back.

The food was superb with live music and really attentive staff would definitely return and recommend. We had 3 course meal which included a very good choice of starters, main meal and desserts.

Wonderful music with a great menu provided for the night for only 25€. I have to say I was pretty impressed with the selection and quality of the food offered on the menu for the price . The staff was very friendly and attentive . Will definitely go again !!

Went here for dinner with a group of friends while on holiday in the area, and we were so glad we did! Most of us ordered from the €25 'Music Night' menu, and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the dishes we chose, and agreed it was excellent value for money. The 'slow cooked' pork really had been slow cooked and was beautifully tender with a deliciously crisp crackling on top, and each of the steaks had been cooked perfectly according to preference. Even the side dishes of potato and a vegetable stack were elegant and tasty.
The location of the restaurant offers some beautiful views while you dine, and the live music is an enjoyable accompaniment to the evening without being over bearing.
The staff were all lovely too, and were incredibly efficient, helpful and friendly without being intrusive.
We would have happily gone back for a second visit to this restaurant, but sadly it was closed on the only evening we had free before we returned home. Ah well, next time...

Visited with husband and 3yr old daughter. Was a lovely setting. I had the 20euro menu whilst my husband ordered from a la carte. Food was ok, nothing memorable but not bad.
Not family unfriendly but have been to better. Clearly have their local/regular favourite customers for the tables with a view. May consider returning for a lunch.
