Although we only called in for a drink we were warmly welcomed. Service very good and the view of the loch is superb. Although a drive out of Donegal obviously popular and it was good to see the car park filling up.

Attended today for my birthday lunch. Atmosphere, service and food was excellent. We had a lake view table and it was truly amazing. The staff took photographs and sang happy birthday. Would highly recommend for a special occasion.

We have been here a few times over the years for Sunday lunch but as we were back again recently, I decided it deserved a review. Very simply, excellent food, all you can eat.

With two vegetarians in our family, Sunday carvery lunches in Donegal are usually more of a miss than a hit! Last year, we had cause to criticise Harvey's Point following a meal, however never have I seen criticism taken in such a constructive manner. Today, we were delighted to find a dedicated vegetarian section (no chance of a meaty spoon... More

We attended a works party on the Saturday before Christmas and ate in the restaurant rather than previous years when we had ate in the function room. The food we had was excellent.

First year we've been out for Christmas dinner and Harvey's Point made it perfect. Server came to us right away and soup came quickly after that. Carvery after that at our own pace, tables cleared rapidly and diluted juice refilled. Food was excellent, great selection of starter and dessert, left stuffed. Waiting staff really polite and helpful. THANKYOU HARVEY'S POINT

Attended the Cabaret with a party of friends to celebrate a retirement. Food as usual excellent - soup and main course served at your table and you help yourself to a vast array of starters in their food hall - difficult to choose without overdoing it, but be sure to leave room for their desserts where you also can choose...

Birthday gift for my wife for a 2 night stay with a la carte meal. Staff, food, ambiance all superb. Chef's cooking demonstration was brilliant. Weather was dreadful but didn't affect our great time. Would highly recommend Harveys point.
