Summertime Cabaret we visited was excellent From start to finish lovely surroundings and food enjoyed by all only lost a star because our drinks were forgotten and our meal started before we had to remind the staff, even so we would love to go again and maybe stay in the hotel itself which looked fabulous

Finally managed to visit the restaurant in Harveys Point and was not disappointed. Beautiful table overlooking the majestic Lough Eske and a wonderful meal. Service absolutely excellent - very pleasant staff. Great value for money for food of the quality we were served. Would rush back again at every opportunity.
