    I caught the chef’s TV show last night. Some good stuff, well cooked…and the section on pork was good.The programme was partially an ad for the restaurant, which kinda stuck, but its good to hear that the food was good quality.

    The restaurant and food sounds gorgeous Caroline and reasonable too, would have expected it to be a lot more expensive.

    As well as the food being good, the setting is gorgeous. The courtyard that we went through on our way into the restaurant had a enormous open air fireplace which looked like a great place for an al fresco meal, if the weather was that little bit better! It is right by the Grand Canal so we went for a walk there the following morning – if we had arrived there earlier it would be the perfect way to whet the appetite before dinner.

    Hi CarolineAfter a wonderful week away in Istria we foolishly jumped into the car and headed towards Galway for the film fleadh. Imagine our horror as we sat, hangovers installed in the traffic hell like a pair of eejits. We turned back, ordered a curry and miraculously stayed together! P.S I havn’t been to Corrigans yet, sounds good. Val

    That was definitely a wise choice, although one that wasn’t really an option for us. We were stuck sitting, and sitting, and sitting…very frustrating, especially when you’re also getting hungry as well. Although I don’t think we were too badly off, compared to all those who were trying to get to Babs!
