This restaurant specialises in fish dishes, I had prawns in garlic and hake in a risotto, it was cooked beautifully and tasted delicious. My husband had venison (pheasant also on menu), it was very good. I had panacotta with plums for desert (I love pannacotta but did not like this version). So the menu is bit different from the norm.... More

Went here yesterday for lunch with my partner and our 4 week old son. When we entered the restaurant and asked for a table, the waitress, which can only be described as a snotty so and so looked at us, then at the buggy, and after deep thought hooshed us down to corner. I might add the restaurant was empty... More

What a lovely, quaint town! The King Sitric is a charming place right on the ocean front. The staff, food and wine were all excellent, and we only wish we had booked to stay longer. Make sure you take a stroll along the pier, and also take in the ruins and the castle. We were extremely surprised, to say the... More

We stayed on a very beautiful (and busy) Saturday night. There is no assigned parking, so we had to drive around the public parking to find a spot, a little ways away. Our room was very nice, but on the ground floor, so the view was of the side of a truck parked there. People walked right by our window... More
