Myself and my husband went to Tra Ban on a Friday evening recently. We had been to Eala Bhan their sister restaurant in Sligo town a few times and really enjoyed it. We decided to try Tra Ban based on their outstanding reputation. We were very disappointed. We ordered the chicken wings to start which are described as a hot... More

I had surf and turf for main. the steak was... More

I ate here last week with my partner, having visited Strandhill and walking for miles we decided to treat ourselves. We were not disappointed. We were greeted by a friendly face (front of house girl) who showed us to our table for 2 by the window. We even managed to catch the most amazing sunset but that's not why I'm... More

Had dinner here during the week and was very disappointed. The restaurant itself was dark and not particularly comfortable or pleasant to be in. The toilets were disgusting. They are shared with a Chinese restaurant across the hall and smelled strongly of Chinese food. They were poorly maintained and not clean. The waitress was pleasant. The food itself however was...

Reception and service were fine. It's the food that's a letdown. The short menu goes on at some length about the quality of their local suppliers, but the... More

Quiet restaurant with view on the sea. Good fresh food (crab claws, stuffed mushrooms, ... ) and side dishes. The restaurant has an extensive wine list. Professional staff.
