Visited Aldos recently while driving in the Ardglass area. Had lunch and was very pleasantly surprised with the warm greeting and help with the menu. So willing to please and nothing was too much trouble, including cooking some dishes not on their menu. Friend said the scampi was the best they'd ever eaten. All the food was very tasty, hot...

Thank you for taking the time to give us such a great review. It is very satisfying to know that you rated every aspect of your visit as five star. We are particularly pleased that your friend rated the scampi so highly as we buy fresh, whole langoustines directly from Ardglass harbour and hand peel them in our kitchen, As... More

This is undoubtedly one of my favourite restaurants anywhere. We had the most fantastic evening meal for eight adults and five children (aged 3 to 7). Included in our party was a vegan adult and two vegan children who were well catered for. A very good menu to cater for any taste and all the dishes chosen were well appreciated.... More

Hi, Having been recommended Aldos by a friend this was our choice of restaurant for an overnight stay in the area and we were not disappointed. Advance bookings are available and i’m told necessary during the busier summer months, Niall the owner personally took our reservation and welcomed us in advance. Upon arrival we found the old building had much... More

Ate in this restaurant last night (25/10/13) and found everything absolutely fantastic. We arrived and were met by Niall who took us through to the very pleasant bar area and gave us the menu to browse over our pre dinner drinks and he made a real effort to talk to us showing a real interest in what we were saying...

What a gem of a restaurant from the friendly relaxed welcome and atmosphere to sterling service with a smile and cuisine which is unparalleled in my extensive travels or maybe I was just both lucky and hungry at the same time.

Was recommended this restaurant for somewhere lovely to take all my family to to celebrate my youngest brother coming home from Hong Kong. 4 of us had the roast meat dinner, the slices of meat had so much fat on it that it ruined the lunch for us. The restaurant was cold but the staff was friendly though.

Hi Brenda, Sorry that you didn't enjoy your meal. We mostly use Irish sirloin for our Sunday roasts but occasionally we would use Rib. I can only assume that you had the Rib eye roast as this cut would be fattier but absolutely delicious and flavoursome. My waiting staff are trained to check every table during each course. If all...

Recommended by everyone we met in the local town. Don't think there is any alternative, bar the local chip shop! We weren't disappointed, didn't try the steak as everyone said as would have to be 'really good' for the price, but the two fish 'specials' couldn't be bettered. Wine well priced and selection of potato choices and vegetables excellent. Great... More

Thanks for the brilliant review. The seafood specials always go down well. We wait to see what fish is landed at the harbour then create the meal.

The best steak we have ever had. Outstanding! An excellent wine was recommended and the warm atmosphere made it an evening we're still talking about. Friendly, welcoming staff and a clean, well presented restaurant.

Very happy with this review and that you enjoyed everything so much. Our steaks are 28 day dry aged and sourced from local farms. Our butcher (Mc Greevys, Downpatrick) picks out the best sirloins for us and dry ages them, we pay a bit more for this service but believe it's worth it for the quality of the meat. Thank... More
