Just finished a great meal at Aldos...and can't believe I have never been here before...a huge portion of pan fried monkfish with an accompaniment of freshly made pasta in a bowl and a separate bit if the sort of dark good quality olive oil you only get in Italy:) I am a very happy woman

Thank you for such a positive review. We currently have a fresh pasta dish on every menu and also some lovely dried pasta dishes too. There is always fresh seafood and when the kitchen is quiet we are more than happy to "mix things up" to individual customers tastes. Glad you liked the olive oil as we always try to... More

During our summer visit to Northern Ireland, we had our annual meal in Aldos. As ever the food was fantastic, cooked to perfection and beautifully presented, making the most of local produce. The staff were as friendly and welcoming as ever. We approve of the renovations that have taken place, modernising the main restaurant. will definitely be back next year.

Took my husband and children to Aldo's on Fathers Day as a treat. Had pre booked my table online with Niall. We had a lovely warm welcome to Aldo's. After perusing the menu , we found it difficult to choose, as each dish sounded equally as delicious as the previous on the menu. We were not disappointed. Each course was... More

I have been visiting Aldos for many years and it truly is an exceptional restaurant. Situated in a picturesque location opposite Ardglass Golf Club the restaurant has had the benefit of an impressive make over since my last visit. However no change to the quality of the food which as usual was delicious. Aldo's has a cosy bar area where... More

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...

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
