Girls night out

A group of friends went out for an enjoyable evening of food, wine and gossip. Staff were polite and helpful. The food was outstanding. Will be back with the hubby soon.

We had crab cakes and chowder for starters. Very disappointing. I couldn't taste any crab in my crab 'balls'. They resembled and tasted of mashed potato in breadcrumbs, deep fried. My wife's chowder was very thick, the potato lumps were under=cooked and there was very little fish. The mains were superb, my wife's curry was delicious and my steak was... More

Went for my partners birthday on Sunday lovely atmosphere in this place but it did seem very quiet once we start eating the Sunday buffet you could tell why food was cold and bland at 25 pound a head you would expect better. My partner went to speak to the manager who I must say handled the matter fantastic he... More

There is no doubt the cultra inn is a very professionally operated top end restaurant and the dinning experience can not be faulted. The serving staff were top notch and they ensured everything was perfect. Exquisite food, daring, delicate, fresh and perfectly balanced! Defiantly be back!

Booked a table for 6 for lunch. Restuarant was 1/2 full on a bank holiday Monday which should have warned us. Strangely we were seated right next to a kids area with big flashing TV and understandably noisy kids playing. Didn't notice at first or would have moved to one of the many other tables. Waited 35 minutes for someone... More

We were not greeted promptly when entering into the restaurant, a foreign spoken young lady didn't have a clue what she was doing when greeted us. We had to go and ask for our own drinks and tell the staff we were ready to give our order. So understaffed, and staff had definitely no experience in working in a busy... More

Went for a lunch with my elderly mother. The weather was good enough to sit outside at their well placed tables but as my mother is 86 & feels cold most of the time, I had to sit inside. Tastefully decorated & the tables are well spaced out making it ideal for anyone with mobility problems. I ordered the Pork,... More

A group of us went to Cultra for an early dinner and had a delightful time. We were seated promptly, orders taken and a variety of entrees ordered. Everyone enjoyed their choices and we definitely recommend a visit. If you have time, walk up the hill to the Castle for coffee and dessert.
