Fabulous fish and very friendly service.

Fabulous fresh fish, great wine, friendly service. Hake fish fingers and pan fried seabass both highly recommended. Lovely setting and very convenient location.

Lots of promise based on reviews I had read and local recommendations but, unfortunately, it failed to live up to those. The starkest point was the indifference of the staff who, it seemed, couldn't really care whether you wanted to dine there or not. Having travelled along the Wild Atlantic Way from Donegal down towards the south, it was the... More

Every dish was fantastic. A lovely seafood menu full of flavour and colour. Every so often I find a restaurant experience that is like a golden thread weaved in the fabric of memory. I constantly think back to a wonderful family evening with great personal and professional service. I really look forward to my return visit.

Proper fish town. Supervalu even has a fish tank to pick your shellfish. Plenty of choice and the fresh calamari on offer enticed us in late afternoon. Looked smart from outside and smell on entry from the kitchen was amazing. We had the calamari with a chilli mayo and simple salad. Then a lemon sole and fish pie. Lemon sole... More

This appears a very popular venue, but is not huge, so booking is advisable, even on a Sunday when we dined. We did witness people being turned away and they missed a treat! At E26.95 for 3 courses the early bird menu offers excellent value. Essentially our meals were seafood based and were spot on. Service was attentive and, (inevitably),... More

Close to Sea Mist House, Mitchell's owner found a table for us even though we did not have a reservation and helped a member of our party find something to suit her dietary restrictions, even bringing her a sample. The seafood was excellent, especially the seafood chowder and the three course specials were a good value. A quality establishment with... More
