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... read 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

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

We were treated to some excellent meals. I had emailed my reservation and Niall greeted us at the door, and brought us into the bar area for pre dinner drinks. We then proceeded to our table. Try the lasagna. Who would have thought you could find great Italian food in Ireland. We left to have drinks at the golf club... More

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.
