The cloisters-and refectory-style decor is definitely tongue-in-cheek at this upbeat, fun restaurant in sleepy Greystones, an old-fashioned seaside resort a couple of miles south of Bray. Owner Pat Keown is a great host, and his laughter and love of good food and fine wine are contagious. Dinner is served by candlelight and the menu specializes in uncluttered seafood dishes in summer and wild game on cold winter nights. The Seafood Symphony is a particular favorite, as
is the roast haunch of Wicklow venison with red cabbage roulade. Sunday lunches, in the bar area, are famous for their length (they often last into the early evening) and for the lively atmosphere.
