We went here as a group of 5 including one 11 year old. The whole experience was great. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend a visit!

This is a great restaurant. The food is excellent and the staff friendly. We had the fishcake starters which are brilliant. The wine was excellent (we had the house wine and it is one of the best house wines I have ever had - I normally stay away from house wines)

Yet again, Westport proves to be a culinary oasis on the west coast of Ireland. As in my Bella Vita review, we'd booked in advance. Again early bird menu was so tempting we thought why not. Complimentary breads, baked in house were a very tasty touch as a pre starter. We both had the shoulder of ham and blue cheese... More

Had lovely meal here for the third time in the last year. Restaurant is small & can feel a little cramped. Decor is quite old fashioned but food & service are excellent. Menu is interesting & everything cooked to perfection. Had fish & chips with delicious light batter but no trouble to produce plain fish for another member of party.... More

On a cold January Saturday evening, early with two small children, we found this delightful restaurant. We didn't have a reservation as we were only in Westport for one night and hadn't planned our itinerary to such fine detail. As expected the restaurant had lots of reservations but could let us have a table until 8pm, not difficult with a... More

This restaurant is well-located, just up from Westport's famous "Octagon", around the corner from the excellent SuperValu supermarket. We had tried getting a reservation here before, but the polite Hostess was uncertain as to the numbers she expected on the night, and never came back to us. This time, her response to our enquiry was prompt, efficient & friendly, resulting... More

We booked into this restaurant after reading reviews of what was available in Westport and we were not disappointed. From the call to make the reservation to leaving after our meal the whole experience was superb. The restaurant, while not very large, is laid out so that it doesn't feel cramped or crowded. The decor is bright and welcoming and... More

My wife and I ate in the Pantry & Screw on one night and the food and service we returned the next night for another wonderful meal. The host, Dermott, made the meal truly memorable.

Just managed to get a table here last Saturday night, very happy we did. We had chorizo and potatoes as a starter, we cleared the plate. We both had steak for main, a rib eye and a sirloin, both were cooked to perfection and the red wine sauce complimented perfectly. The red wine recommended by the waitress really set it... More
