Having lived in Strabane for so many years it has taken me 8 years of living in England to finally get around to eating here- and I probably will EVERYTIME I'm home again. On a quiet Thursday night my wife and I have had a fine dining meal that I didn't know strabane was capable of. The place itself is... More

The waiter/owner was courteous, professional and amicable. It... More

The food was excellently prepared and presented. The taste and flavours were of the highest quality. Staff went out of their way to facilitate my gluten-free diet. The atmosphere was very pleasant and added to a wonderful evening.

I recently visited Oysters for the first time as a party of four. We ordered two courses each and wine and from start to finish, each and every dish of food was prepared and cooked immaculately. The attention to detail from the owner, Kevin, was superb, as you would expect from an award-winning restaurant. A truly great eatery and one... More

We had a quick lunch stop on our way to Donegal. Actually it was out of our way but my wife insisted that I tried it as she had already been and insisted we call. I have to admit it was worth the detour. Beautifully decorated inside, very attentive staff, good food at reasonable prices. The owner -Kenny, runs a... More

We called in here on the off chance that we would get a meal for 4 en route home from a long hard day's work. Were we surprised. The staff were lovely and so pleasant. We had a mixture of a la carte and dinner and everyone was more than satisfied. No wonder there were so many awards on display.... More

Was here last night. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, enjoyed a drink and soaked up the atmosphere. Food wise to start we had a pigeon beast and the seafood medley..... Seafood was delicious. Just gorgeous. Then had steak which was also good. And the meringue with hot toffee dessert.... Yum!!!!
