Never ceases to disappoint. Refreshingly personable service, genuine smiley faces from staff and even better, we're almost treated like part of the family anytime we visit.

I came here after a friend telling me that this place had the best steak ever. I actually ordered lamb instead and oh my days, it was amazing. Definitely the best lamb I have had in a while. Perfectly cooked and the chef made the fat crispy like crackling. A little burnt but the lamb was too delicious for me... More

Had another fabulous meal from the grill section (meal for two)two sides and two sauces for £50.Chateaubriand It was beautiful but soon adds up after drinks etc.Meal was georgeous and worth the price on special occasions.We had the cote de Beauf that was out of this world. As usual the place was absolutely packed,don't miss a good meal.

Best steaks we have had in ages, cooked to perfection! Restaurant was busy and the staff were very attentive. Nice idea they have as we did not fancy any of the sweets they bring these shot glass desserts round each table (about 10 differently filled glasses) we opted for a chocolate mousse one and a peanut butter and chocolate one,...

My husband and I had a very enjoyable meal here last weekend with my son, his wife and our two grandchildren. They are pretty good with children and provide paper & crayons which keeps them occupied for a while at least. The portions are pretty large so my husband & I ordered two starters & passed on the main course... More

Went here yesterday for a meal for two. Heard great reviews about food and wasn't disappointed. Food was the best I've had in a long time. Great friendly service. If you love your seafood. Go to this place. Walk up to the castle on the moat for some great scenic views of Donaghadee.
