We ate here last night on our last night in Westport after reading the previous reviews. It was our honeymoon and wanted something special for our last night! Starters : I ordered the chicken wings in a "light" garlic sauce and my partner ordered the prawn cocktail. The chicken wings were obviously microwaved and came out in a heavy, stodgy... More

This must be the best pizza I have had since moving to Ireland almost 20 years ago. Staff was very efficient and fast though the restaurant wasn't too busy
