Food was ok when we got it but we were kept waiting 45mins from the time we ordered and eventually had to call the waiter and waitress to see what the delay was

To even say that this is superior quality bar food it not really doing this place justice but it is a casual setting with a relaxed but well presented menu. The dinning/bar area is spotless and well cared for and the staff are friendly and professional . It's a pity that they won't reserve a table for groups under 6... More

Excellent food, brilliant service, fish dishes are especially good. Scallops and Halibut dishes were brilliant, even a simple chicken sandwich was served with side salad and crisps that were gourmet. Book a table if they take bookings during the summer Season as it is not particular big.

Very good for both lunch and dinner. Some very good sandwiches and seafood. Negatives is it can be quite loud especially for hard of hearing and the seating in certain areas can be quite squished. Overall, very good food and service.

The highlight was the tempura prawn, simply delicious. The seafood chowder is one of the best I had in Ireland. It was great experience even the weather was... More
