We were a party of six with differing tastes and all were very satisfied. The fresh fish of the day special was one of the best meals I have had anywhere. The service was excellent, the presentation beautiful. I have nothing but great things to say about this restaurant -- one of the best of our recent trip.

This is a beautiful fish restaurant with excellent service and wonderful food. It also has a sister restaurant in Galway called O'Grady's. Both come highly recommended. Hubby said it was the best mussels he had ever had and trust me, he should know. He's had hundreds!! My prawn cocktail was lovely. Bay prawns and smoked trout salad was lovely. Hubby's... More

We dined here for my mum's birthday. Food & service were excellent! They had a huge fish specials menu to choose from. If you like fish it is a place you should visit! The service was outstanding and they really made my mum's night memorable.I will definitely return here.
