Fodor's Review

One of Athlone's culinary highlights, this bistro is noted for its early-bird menu which runs through the evening (except Saturday, when it ends at 6:30 pm), filled with such delights as beef Stroganoff, fillet of tilapia on mash, or spinach and ricotta cannelloni. Later on, the beige-on-brown dining room fills up with people happy to choose dishes from the main dinner menu, which favors steaks, fish, duck, and rack of lamb. For lunch, the most popular dish is tandoori chicken breast on focaccia bread with sautéed potatoes. Irresistible desserts include Mississippi mud pie, pavlova roulade, and lemon-and-lime cheesecake. Ask joint-owner Annie McNamara about the Left Bank dressing, a specially bottled vinaigrette that people come from all across Ireland to buy.
