We had the dinner rather than longer menu - I think 6 plates in all. All small but with dense complex tastes - and yet tasted fresh - really wonderful food.And after 6 plates even I had had plenty. Cheffy yes - and far far from home cooking ( my house anyway!) Great service, friendly staff, lovely room. Expensive but... More

The 5 month wait was certainly worth it! The food presented to us by wonderful knowledgeable staff was superb! We had the 9 course menu and every single item was delicious. Although expensive and thought this would be a one-off, now feel must return!

All I can say is that the 4 month wait for Sunday lunch at Neven Maguire's was worth every minute!!! The food was unbelievable - I would even dare to say the best ever - with the mango sorbet in my dessert being the absolute star of the show and Neven's mash has to be tasted to be believed!! By...

Just had Sunday lunch at MacNean's and have been totally blown away yet again. Each time we visit we think things cannot get any better and they do!! Every single morsel that was beautifully presented to us tasted even better than it looked. Sunday lunch is just such amazing value at 39 Euros - it is unbelievable!!! What more can... More

We had one of our most memorable meals ever, last week in McNean's restaurant. We opted for the 9 course tasting or Prestige menu and also selected the 'recommended wines' option. This brought the price up to €132 each but whilst this is expensive it was definitely worth every penny!! Within the 9 courses there was a choice of two... More

Just back from a trip to McNeans..outstanding. It goes with out saying that Nevan is a super chef, but what really impressed us was the food knowledge of the dining room team, their ability to explain each item on the plate was super. We found all the team to be extremely welcoming & eager to look after all our needs... More

We arrived to McNeans and were greeted by a huge smile and friendly and warm atmosphere. The staff in McNeans are incredibly friendly and as I was almost 7 months pregnant, both the bar man and the waitresses as well as Nevan himself bent over backwards to make us feel at home. We were brought up to our room which... More

We have eaten in Mc Neans before and each time the food has been exceptional. Staff are very warm and welcoming. Meal again on most recent visit was an exceptional culinary delight served by a wonderful waiting staff. Only downside was in bar afterwards, barman was a little too overly familiar which took the edge of what had been a... More

We booked in September for Valentines day and I have to say it was well worth the wait! We had the prestige menu matched with wines, the food was out of this world and the wines were beautifully complementary with each course. Lovely atmosphere, relaxed, intimate and cosy. I will be recommending to everyone, although it is expensive, you do... More
