Desserts include classics like tart tatin and chocolate parfait, also some treats not likely to be found in the immediate area.
Like many of the best French chefs cooking in Ireland today, Remy has great respect for the quality of the produce in his area - “We literally get all our food locally and also employ all our team from the local area. They all have a great local knowledge and impart that to the many visitors. Donna and Remy have built up a very popular venue and their ever popular Sunday lunch is a must where booking is advisable.
This year they will also be introducing their very special Christmas menus which are sure to be a huge success.
