On a hillside overlooking the river on the eastern edge of the city, this restaurant is in a stately Georgian house with extensive grounds, including a kitchen garden that supplies the restaurant. The food is classical French, and it's served, appropriately, in a dining room decorated in the French Empire style, with plush Louis XV–style chairs, gilt-frame mirrors, and crystal chandeliers. Local ingredients are important: a starter of panfried foie gras is accompanied
by black pudding from West Cork and glazed apple; it's a favorite with the regulars. Other standout items include grilled monkfish from Courtmacsherry, served with a basil oil dressing and red wine sauce, and fillet of beef with wild mushrooms, red onion confit, and red wine sauce. As a "restaurant with rooms," dine-and-stay packages are available.
