If you enjoy great food and have not yet discovered the treasures awaiting you at the relatively new Artisan Restaurant in Quay Street, then you have a real treat in store for yourself. It is located upstairs over Tigh Neachtain’s pub where Ard Bia was located before its move to the Spanish Arch. The restaurant is run by Matt Skeffington who does the job of maitre d’ in a pretty cool and efficient style. The kitchen is run by head chef Sylvain Gatay, and he has produced a menu which is quite wide ranging and with regional French flavours to many of the dishes on offer. The restaurant is not large so booking is recommended at weekends. The food is brilliant and the atmosphere perhaps could best be described as cool, lively, and happy.
