We ate here last week (couple and a three year old baby). The food was good. The atmosphere was relaxed. The venue has great character. The staff are particularly helpful. I think a couple of changes would further improve the experience: 1. the vinyl tablecloths let them down - my area was a bit sticky! 2. I could see how... More

We had a delicious meal on Saturday night in this beautiful little spot. The welcome and service were great, with knowledgeable and confident staff (which really makes a difference) the food was moorish (great ribeye), the wine list was very accessible and the Merlot we chose was spot on. Dermot and Janet, the owners, (who we only met that night)... More

A group of us ladies visited this restaurant on foot of it's rating on Trip adviser, on a recent Saturday night. The restaurant is lovely, has quirky decor and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our evening, starters were great (black pudding was a big hit). However some of the main courses were not what we expected,... More

Booked after reading trip advisor reviews. Wasn't disappointed, fantastic food, great wine list and superb service. Very reasonably priced as well. Lovely cozy restaurant with a nice atmosphere.

My husband and I enjoyed our visit here in May 2013. We were one of the opening tables when they opened for the night. Very cute little restaurant. The service was exceptional. Different beer options, and the food was yummy! I got a burger and my husband a pasta dish, and we both enjoyed them. We left very full!

The Pantry & Corkscrew is a quaint little restaurant located just off the Octogan in Westport. As Westport is a town full of excellent restaurants we had not made it to this restaurant before however it is fair to say we will be back..... We had a lovely meal. We sampled dishes from the excellent early bird and ate off... More

This restaurant was recommended by the owner of St. Anthony's B&B where we were staying for a few nights. We were absolutely astonished that the food was so incredibly good!! Really a special spot. Make reservations ahead of time as it is a popular place. The owner was such a nice person and so accommodating and helpful. The staff were... More

I ate here on a Friday night and loved it. Nice ambience and yummy food, with some really nice touches, like a free lemon posset mini-dessert. The waitress was new and made a few mistakes with order but they were corrected quickly, so the service was good. I left absolutely stuffed, so my advice would be don't make too many... More

We (a couple) eat here on a recent stay in Westport. It is a lovely small restaurant with a great atmosphere and the food was the best we had in Westport. As others have pointed out, the service is great but the real 'star' is the food which was very fresh and tasty. It was like eating in your Grans... More

I couldn't recommend this restaurant highly enough! I loved it! From its vintage style decor, to the fantastic menu choices (as a vegetarian it was wonderful to see something other than the usual, eg: the beetroot burger!!) If you don't visit this little restaurant on your trip to Westport you will be missing out on one of its most magical... More
