Had a great experience here. Mum and my 2sisters arrived without a reservation- no problem to jo and the gang. Food and service was excellent from start to finish. A meal to remember from start to finish. Especially the cushions and hug.

This casual little restaurant had a great, cozy atmosphere. We had a lovely table by the front window. On Saturday night we ordered a large wood fired pizza to share and then topped it off with Butterscotch Cake and ice-cream. Both were excellent. On Sunday we looked at a bunch of other restaurants in town and then went back to... More

We were very hungry for pizza and found this cozy place just perfect! The food was good! There were a lot of other things on the menu that looked equally as delicious.

In Donegal town for a weekend recently. Ate in the harbour on Fri night & enjoyed it so much we ended up going back on Sat night. Could not fault the food, atmosphere, Jo & her team make such an effort with the service. Would highly recommend out to anyone.

This place is not so much a 'restaurant' but more like a pub-grub joint without the 'pub'. Like other reviewers, I had the seafood gratin, but it was more mushy-mash & cheese with two crab claws. My other-half had the chowder, said it was great and insisted I upgrade this review from the 2 stars that I wanted to give... More
