Excellent little bar and restaurant. The scent of garllic and herbs was enough to make a tummy rumble. Room was small but clean with very comfy bed. Gr8 breakfast in the morning.

We have been to this restaurant twice. On the first occasion, the guy behind the bar didn't have the manners to extend us a welcome. Instead, he grunted and motioned us towards a table. He later stretched his sweaty armpit over me while I was eating and did not apologise or excuse himself. The food on that occasion, was passable... More

Been here many a time for food and drinks...its a grand little boozer...food is quite good...decent pub grub. The place is usually flat out, so getting a table is a mission. Staff are busy so dont expect any pleasantries. The seafood chowder is recommended and they do good stout.

Have been here before and had mixed experiences. Tried it yesterday as we were in the mood for a nice Sunday Lunch. What a mistake! The soup was chicken and mushroom and tasted ok. The mains of beef and Turkey was quite frankly bland, and disgusting. Not what I expect from a roadside cafe let alone a gastro pub. Won't... More

This great restaurant is located right beside Bundoran's lovely beach! The atmosphere is great and there's always a great buzz in the air... Oh and yeah the food is also fantastic. I always like to indulge in a classic, therefore I would recommend the roast beef dinner, sublime!
