Catherine Cleary reviewed Harry's in the Irish Times Magazine on 23rd August and described it as being on 'top of its game'. Not sure what game that is; is it: average food? excruciatingly slow service? I've been before and I went again post-Cleary to see if she was right and I had been wrong; result - I simply cannot see... More

I will keep it simple: The food was OK The views are stunning (it is the North Coast of Ireland what do you expect) We sat outside and where served promptly - We had 2 meals and 2 drinks. 1 burger and chip (very small chip portion) and Hot dog and chip & 2 cans of coke. The cost was... More

Second time here and took a friend from London as I knew I could rely on the food being good. I love the fact that the meat is bred in Donegal, the fish from Greencastle and the vegetable produce is grown there also. The service is warm and friendly and the food is excellent. If you are looking for a... More

We have just found a new restaurant in Portstewart and delighted to see they offer a variety of fish, all fresh from Donegal. The restaurant is situated on the entrance to the beach and obviously the views are amazing. We were impressed with the relaxed atmosphere, spaciousness and the overall welcome of the place. The staff were attentive, knew their... More

We have been a few times and the food is always lovely. Locally sourced produce is used as far as is possible. The service is very good, attentive without being over bearing. We always eat here when we are in the area.

There were 22 of us wanting a meal, we had arrived in the area for a wedding but hadn't booked a restaurant. Harry's agreed to take us all in, sat us all together and served us an excellent meal. The service was spot on and the food beautiful in both taste and presentation. Even though the kitchen had actually closed,... More

Little does Derry or Donegal know that probably the (real) best chef in Ulster slaves behind these stoves. Food is first class and not what you would normally expect for this area. Refined beautifully,balanced and full of flavour. Service is also excellent, friendly and professional, but its only downside is the restaurant itself. It wouldnt be the most inviting place,very...

We live quite close to Harry's but recently we have been going to restaurants in Derry thinking that they are better value. We decided to give it a try last weekend and got a great surprise. We opted for a special 60 euro meal ( £48) for 2 people including a bottle of wine and it was fabulous.For starters we... More

Went for evening meal. Loved everything. The staff were so friendly and efficient. The food was amazing. The turnip and cider soup was fantastic. Could have licked the bowl. The plaice on the bone was perfect as was the pork belly. Could eat desert as full but they looked amazing. We will be back. We loved it. The Chef Derek... More
