Wow. Where do I start, visited the harbour restaurant on Valentine's night and couldn't have been better. I had been speaking to a lady Debbie O'Reilly a few days prior about sorting a few items for our table (romantic touch) all requests and enquiries were not just met but exceeded my expectations by miles. I can not recommend this restaurant... More

We choose to go to this restaurant on the back of the reviews on here and we were not disappointed! Very relaxed and comfortable feeling inside with nice decor. The food was lovely. The steak was perfectly cooked and just right portion sizes. 5/5!!

We had a nice table quite close to the front door. The staff were exceptionally friendly, as is everyone in Donegal town. The waitress explained all the dishes on the menu to us and recommended some items. The service was excellent. Food was very nice. Overall a nice experience. Liked the décor.

We took a short taxi trip from the hotel to dine here. We had been here before and it was just as great as we both remembered. Very tasty food and decent portions too. We had steak and seafood, delicious. Very nice staff too, we were impressed again and will be back.

Returned to the Harbour Restaurant this evening for my wife's birthday. Yet again the experiance was top class. The food, wine, atmosphere and staff are fantastic. Try a speciality coffee after dinner. You will not be disappointed. 10 out of 10.

This restaurant/pub was decorated all in old wood. Besides the wonderful atmosphere, the fish and chips we had were delicious. We were waited on right away. Very efficient here.

Nothing is a problem, the staff can make you pretty much anything you want to eat, within reason, which is good if you have little ones who are fussy about their pizza toppings, very reasonably priced also. No reservations necessary and you will always get a seat.
