If you like fresh seafood, contemporary menus, good service & beautiful surroundings then hot foot it to Aldo's. I can't believe that I have never been to this gem of a restaurant before. I have missed out, big time! Can't wait to return in the very near future.

My husband and I have been here quite a few times and I can honestly say it's one of my favourite restaurants! The soup of the day is always delicious whatever it is, fillet steaks are always cooked to perfection and the desserts are lovely. Great portion sizes and large selection of wines. Staff are very helpful too! Would highly... More

A Saturday evening with my husband - a very popular time, so book early! I ordered the recommended tournedos - beautiful, but far too big! The "crouton" it sat on was disappointing - little more than a piece of toasted white bread, so I left that. The starter of thai fish cakes could have taken much more chilli, but the... More

Fantastic new lunch menu. Called recently to try it out. Friend had the Club Sandwich on the home made bread, really excellent. I had large helping of well cooked lamb. Home made steak burger sounds delicious, will definitely return to sample this new menu. Well done ALDOS!

Thank you for trying our new lunch menu and for taking the time to give us a great review. The new lunch menu is proving very popular offering a small but concise choice of freshly made produce, speedily served at an excellent price. The menu changes regularly and can be viewed on our website, www.aldosardglass.com. More

It was 32 years ago since I had been here and I can safely say the food is every bit s good as it was then. Ardglass is a lovely fishing village and although you would think that there would be a lot of fish dishes on offer the menu was well balanced. I can safely say I could have... More

Thank you for calling by and for then taking the time to give us a great review. We have been open since 1973 and still get many customers calling by who used to come when my mum and dad ran the restaurant. Ardglass is a beautiful village and definitely worth a stop on a day out or a drive around... More

Had prawns and curried parsnip soup for starters, roast sirlion and chicken dinners, meat was so tender. Everything was excellent, very reasonable prices. Highly recommend

Thanks for the great review, in particular your comments concerning our Sunday roast. We use farm assured Irish sirloin and are very proud of the quality of the meat that we serve. Our chefs make fresh soups daily and the Ardglass prawns are a firm favourite. We appreciate your custom and look forward to seeing you again soon. More

Tip: Book! If you want a change to a meal ask for it. Niall will accommodate you if at all possible. We like fish and regularly ask for fish when we eat here. Niall suggested a meal of brill, monk-fish and prawns and we happily went for his suggestion. The service was good and when the meal came the food... More

My first visit to Aldos for almost 10 years - I don't know why we left it so long. We were a party of 4, and each of us ordered something different from the menu. There was a large party ahead of us, but we were served promptly and it hot and fresh. I had fresh garlic prawns (which weren't... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us such a great review. We usually get fresh prawns from the harbour every week and if we can prepare something that is not on the menu we will always try to do so. The venison is one of our personal favourites. This is wild venison from Wicklow and we only use... More
