Good

I was staying in ballybofey and looked up the app to see what was in the area. The app said this place was number 1 for stranorlar. So we went along. It was a very good experience. Great food. Great service. Reasonably priced. No complaints at all and would definitely return and recommend to others.

I'm not sure how this dingy little place merits 5 stars. We ate there recently and honestly the best I can do is give it 2.5 stars. Both my husband and I felt the food was of take away quality, ie, frozen chips, cheap supermarket Cuisine de France bread rolls used, basic reheated stuff, that tastes ok at a push.... More

Had dinner here on Saturday night along with two friends. Restaurant was busy with a party plus other tables. After an hour we had to ask for our starters. Food was lovely but the service was poor they did not have enough staff to cope with the numbers both in the kitchen and the main floor.
