We went along for a family meal, and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The service by the staff was attentive and friendly. The food was fantastic, some things we expected on the menu were not there, no paella, no pulpo. However what was there was great, fresh well seasoned, tasty. When you have one of those food experiences and you think afterwards I am coming back here. One of the things that stood out was how dry the meatballs were, as normally with lamb I would expect them to be greasy. Squid, prawns, pork belly, were all as you would expect.

It's really good place for food for couples or parties. It was recommended to us and we had dinner there both nights we stayed in Killorglin. It has good menu to choose from and everything we had was delicious. It is also good value for money. Nice setting in an old church. Highly recommended.

From the moment you walk up the lane to the entrance, the music on the way gets you in the mood for seriously good and authentic tapas. We were not disapointed in any way. The setting food and service were excellent throughout. The restaurant and bar are very well set up and the wine and food menu is superb. Lovers of proper cocktails will also be thrilled as was my daughter and the prices are fair for the superb quality. This restaurant is the easiest to recommend and is worth the journey. We will be returning very soon and look forward to trying other tapas on the menu that we were too full to attempt. Excellent management and team , please please please keep it up !!

We stopped here one evening as we were passing through Killorglin. Best decision ever. The restaurant is located in an old church building and was a beautiful setting. Tapas were excellent, we had 6 different dishes all were to die for except the shrimp. Service was very good. Will definitely be back.
