Established in August 2014, we are a Mediterranean themed restaurant with Italian influences and also a Traditional touch so there is something to suit every pallet and taste. Our wide selection of Wines and Craft Beers can be had over dinner or as an after dinner drink from the comfort of our lounge area.
First time out as a family since March 2020 and it was for a milestone birthday. A few of the negatives have been mentioned in other reviews such as the noise levels (which, in fairness they can't do anything about), and the seating (which is ragged and could do with upgrade). Now, on to the food and service. Staff are great - very friendly and pleasant. We had a bit of an overly long wait for our starter order to be taken and I had to go to the counter after over 30 minutes waiting. There is a wide and varied menu, with something to suit all tastes. Everything, and I mean everything, we had was absolutely delicious. Piping hot, flavourful and generously portioned. I have to mention the fish and chips as it is quite often the option I would go for myself - it was genuinely the best I've had in any restaurant for a long time. Crumbly, melt in the mouth fish, and a perfectly crunchy batter. Similar comments from all the diners at our table about their meals also. We will definitely be back again!
Lovely staff. Free parking at back. Great variety offered. Good deal on Early Birds. Food was just alright and 2 dishes we got were not accurately depicted on the menu.
We had our daughters confirmation here last night . Staff were excellent. So friendly and nice . Service was perfect and staff were very efficient and attentive . All meals pipping hot and delicious. Thank you 50 /50 ..
Food was very tasty, good size portions, polite & helpful staff, children's 2 course meals are v-good value @ 795. could benefit from some air-conditioning to control the heat. Would eat there again.

Just like Jane, the story of a quest for love, sophisticated, elegant… Must be drank with pinky finger out. Bloom’s Gin, Infused Elderflower with citrus, orange bitters & a prosecco top.
“Elementary” is exactly what I thought when I tasted this amazing sweet & sour cocktail… Absolute Raspberry, cola & lemon liquor, with cranberry juice, citrus, vanilla & whites.
Completely sums up our menu… “You never know what you’re going to get”. Dark Rum, Coconut Rum Melon liquor, orange juice, citrus and passion fruit.
“Every now and then say What The F***, it gives you freedom”, so will this… Row & Co. Whiskey, Apricot Liquor, fresh honey with citrus plum bitters & whites.
Fifty 50 may not be around long but these cocktails are already in the immortal realm
If Adam & Eve were mixologists, we’ve no doubt they would have thought of this
before us. Apple Vodka, Sour Apple, Honeycomb Liqueur, Cloudy Apple Juice, Lime Juice, Honey & lemonade.
If Don Draper could only choose one drink for the rest of his TV life, we guarantee it would be this …. Bulleit Bourbon, Diplomatico Reserve, infused with maple syrup, fresh oranges, Jerry Thomas bitters & a smoking candied orange garnish.
So, we took Liquor 43 & 7-Year-old rum & guess what we got …. with a touch of fresh strawberry puree, cranberry juice, whites & citrus, so simple but delicious.
Winston Churchill said “The price of greatness is responsibility”. WE say its €8.50… and here it is Blooms Gin, Elderflower Liquor, fresh Passionfruit, Cucumber & Plum Bitters with a small dash of lemonade.
With a base ingredient of Teeling’s Single Malt made from equal parts swagger and smarts, infused together with liquor 43, cola schnapps, cherry & lemon all floating on top of bed of coca cola.
So we've taken a list of the great cocktails, that everyone knows and love and put a little interesting twist on them
Our next list is completely dedicated to our nations new favorite son ... no it's not Conor McGregor ... it's Gin, and what better gin to use than Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin
Named after the film because it just doesn’t make sense… or does it? Mor Gin & peach liquor with almond syrup & Prosecco top.
If you don’t like this one we will apologise… “to absolutely no one.” Greenall’s Gin with crème d’mure & rose water, apple juice, citrus & whites.
Un-0027 is the assigned UN number for gunpowder which is completely irrelevant, however it almost says 007 which is cool. Gunpowder Gin, Peach Liquor, Mango Liquor, Orange Juice, bitters, lemon & Mediterranean tonic.
It… is… what… it… is… Sloe Gin & Rhubarb liquor with cranberry juice, fresh citrus & a lemonade top… simple and refreshing.
As he said himself, “happiness is not something ready made” which is why all our cocktails are made to order… Ophir Spiced Gin, Lychee liquor, fresh cucumber, mint citrus & soda water top.
