I hate, literally hate, to write bad reviews which means I oftentimes only submit when I've had a good meal. But, as I'm now out $100 in dining dollars I think it is only fair to all of us TA travelers to post the bad with the good. Our Wednesday evening started with appetizers: bruschetta, garlic bread, and seafood soup.... More

We have been here a few times now and this place never fails to impress. Small and quaint but the food is just simply Devine. Always come away totally stuffed to the gills. Friendly hard working staff, the Harbour is a real delight and anyone who is looking to eat in the town should certainly try here

Went for a meal here with my partner. I got the steak which was cooked to perfection. Staff were attentive and friendly and the overall quality of the food was very impressive. Would recommend both the steak and the pizza. Good quality wine and expresso also. Will definitely come back the next time we're in Donegal.

The finest meal that I have eaten this year and undoubtedly the best restaurant in the whole of County Donegal. I had smoked haddock as a main, which was divine, one of the owners took the time to tell me that all the fish is sourced locally and caught in nearby Killybegs daily. The food was 5 star as was...
